Amy Pepper - Vice President

Temple Sinai is my Sinai because it has provided our family a place to learn, celebrate, and explore our Jewish faith. The warm and caring environment created by the clergy and staff makes Temple Sinai a place to go to for everything from scholarship to friendship and support; you always leave feeling better than when you came in. 

My husband and I joined Temple Sinai in 1999 with our son. Subsequently, we had two more boys who were both welcomed into the Jewish community at Temple Sinai celebrating their britot. All three of our boys attended Religious School from kindergarten to their B'nei Mitzvah and through high school. I have been a member of the Religious School and Social Action Committees, and am a past Social Action Co-Chair. Currently, I am a member of the Youth Engagement Committee. Working on the Listening Campaign with Richard Laskey showed me that one of the most powerful strengths of Temple Sinai is the diversity of its congregation. Additionally, I helped organize our Guinness World Record sandwich-making event.  

Professionally, I am a Social Worker. For more than 15 years I have been working in the Counseling Center at Queensborough Community College, providing counseling services to the student body. I also teach a freshman seminar.

I enjoy spending time with my boys, reading, pilates, yoga, and walking with my husband and our dog.
