Howard J. Weisler - Past President

Temple Sinai is my Sinai because it has provided a Jewish “home away from home” for more than years for my late wife, Marilyn, me, our son Adam, and our daughter Erica. The temple has been there for us through the happy times and provided the necessary support and solace during the sad times. Through our Temple Sinai affiliation, we have established some wonderful long-term friendships.

We moved to Roslyn Heights from Queens with two young children and were looking for a synagogue that would encourage family participation and be welcoming. After we visited a few neighboring synagogues, our "hands down" decision was to join Temple Sinai.

Our family regularly attended Shabbat services and soon established relationships with the temple's clergy and leadership. I was invited to join a committee and later served on many other committees, became a temple officer, and ultimately, had the honor to serve as Temple President from 1993 to 1995. After my presidency, I have continued to remain active as an Honorary Trustee, serving as the Chair of the temple's Building, Grounds, and House Committee, which oversees the expansion and modernization of our temple's facilities.   

 I am the proud grandfather of Rachel and Leah. My wife Marilyn (who was my bride for more than 50 years) and I were thrilled when our children enrolled both of our granddaughters at Rodeph Shalom Day School, where they are getting a wonderful Jewish and secular education.

I am an attorney by education, but have been involved in my own business for the past 46 years.
