Jana Grotas - Trustee

Temple Sinai is my Sinai because it is a safe, welcoming, warm place of worship, but even more, it is a loving community led by dedicated, caring clergy. I grew up and became a Bat mitzvah in a Reform synagogue in New Jersey. I was raised learning the values and traditions of Jewish culture, with a particular emphasis on family, education and giving. I feel strongly that Temple Sinai helps my husband Aaron and I to continue to pass these values onto our two children, Logan (15) and Reese (10).

We joined Temple Sinai when we moved to Roslyn from NYC in 2012. Our son Logan started religious school and became a bar mitzvah in 2018. Our daughter Reese currently attends Temple Sinai religious school. We love and appreciate the vast opportunities for community service that are available to us and our children. Logan participated in Hand in Hand and TSPN last year, and now is actively involved in Havdalah for Hunger. He and I have co-chaired the toiletry committee for mitzvah day for the last four years. I have participated on various
committees including the Auction committee and currently, as Co-Chair of the Education

Currently, I am a stay at home mom to Logan and Reese, and my hobbies include traveling,
reading, writing and photography, and walking our goldendoodle Charlie. I have my Doctorate
in Psychology and practiced as an industrial psychologist for 17 years in leadership consulting,
fifteen of which were at Personnel Decisions International (PDI) in Manhattan. I look forward
to continuing to grow personally and professionally as a Board member at Sinai.
