Howard Berrent - Past President

Temple Sinai is my Sinai because it is a home away from home; there when you need it, want it, and are looking for solace. It is a place to feel connected.

Temple Sinai is an integral part of my life. I have been active on the Religious School Committee, and Adult Engagement Committee, and was a founding member of the Chai Society. I also had the privilege of serving as president of the temple. It was very rewarding to see the temple grow and help make Temple Sinai an even more engaging community, with services, programming, and educational opportunities relevant to each and every congregant. 

My wife Marjorie and I were married by Rabbi Kahan, Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Sinai and senior Rabbi of the congregation for eighteen years. Our children became B’nei Mitzvah and were confirmed at Temple Sinai. Our family includes Jennifer and her son, Paul, and Steven and his wife Diana, and their two children, Zelda and Spencer. Margie’s parents, Bobby and Ed Steiner, were members of Temple Sinai for more than 50 years.

In my professional life, I publish educational materials for public, charter, and private schools and educational institutions. I have worked with educational publishers, school districts, and financial groups and assessed and instructed students with learning and reading disabilities. I have authored several series of educational materials and have been a keynote speaker and presenter at many international, national, state, and local organizations and school systems. For the past several years I have been at RALLY! Education, LLC, an educational publishing company, which addresses standards-based, classroom-focused assessment and instructional materials for schools, both in print and electronic forms.

I love to read, enjoy politics, go to the theater, and enjoy watching my grandkids play sports. I do other things as well as long as they are fun and make me laugh.
