Jacqueline Covey - Trustee

Temple Sinai is my Sinai because it embodies what I want to be as a Jewish person. When I walk into Sinai, a weight is lifted off my shoulders, and a smile comes across my face. I know that my family and I will be warmly greeted, I know good things are happening within these walls, and I know that the clergy are true leaders who inspire and guide our community with wisdom, strength, and warmth.

My family joined Temple Sinai towards the end of 2016. While I was still a member of another synagogue, I met Rabbi White and Cantor Elena several times over the years, and I knew my family would be joining Temple Sinai when the time was right. Now I know exactly what was missing from my life. Temple Sinai has re-awakened part of me and brings out the best in me, my family, and those around us.

My daughter, Dani, became a Bat Mitzvah here in 2017, and my son Adam (who became a Bar Mitzvah prior to joining Sinai) was part of the TSPN program for a few years. Both children participated in Rabbi White's Confirmation class, as well as other teen programs. My husband Steve and I enjoy several Adult Engagement activities and look forward to trips with our temple family. I had the honor of co-chairing Temple Sinai's 70th Anniversary Gala with Howard Berrent and Robyn Corbin. Celebrating Temple Sinai together was a joy for all. I am
also a former president of Friend of a Friend, Sinai’s active women’s group.

I was a Spanish and French teacher, and have also worked as a book and website editor. I currently use my background in art history as a docent at the Heckscher Museum. I have visited Israel 5 times, the last time with my family, and in my free time I enjoy biking, tennis,skiing, sailing, reading, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
