Amy Braunstein - Past President

Temple Sinai is my Sinai because when I enter the building, I have found my home.  Everyone is supportive, welcoming, and truly interested in my family and me. Our clergy and temple leadership are committed and engaged to be responsive to all of our congregants in a meaningful way.

My husband Richard and I joined Temple Sinai in 1999. Our older son, Andrew, attended Religious School from third grade, became a Bar Mitzvah, was confirmed, and graduated from the Teen Program in 2009. Our younger son, Michael, attended Temple Sinai's nursery and summer programs, became a Bar Mitzvah, was confirmed, and graduated from the Teen Program in 2015. They were both officers in SORTY and participated in many of the NYC and Albany trips during their school years. Michael also blew Shofar at the Children's and Community Services during the High Holidays for many years.

Since serving on the Board as Secretary under Charlie Berman, I have been continuously engaged in temple leadership. Over the past 15 years, I have participated in and led many committees, and organized many temple events. In addition, I have actively participated in Friend of a Friend, Social Action, Social Justice, and Adult Engagement, all of which have enriched my Jewish experience and broadened my perspective as a Jewish woman. Most recently, I serves as Executive Vice President, overseeing many committees and participating, on a daily basis, in temple matters. I look forward to the opportunity and privilege of serving as Board President, working with an inspiring group of committed leaders, to help advance Temple Sinai and enrich our community.

I taught Computer Science, Math, and Technology in the Roslyn School District from 1985 until I retired in 2019. I enjoy traveling with my family, going to the theater, and working in my garden.
