Michael Shaffet - Past Treasurer

Temple Sinai is my Sinai because it allows my family and I to experience Judaism in a warm and welcoming environment.

My wife Betty and I, together with our two daughters, moved to East Hills more than 50 years ago and became members of Temple Sinai shortly thereafter. We were warmly welcomed by Rabbi Kahan, who presided over many life cycle events including the B'not Mitzvah of both of our children. The current Temple clergy, led by Rabbi White, has continued this welcoming and caring spirit, all of which has provided my family with a lasting connection to Judaism.

More than 15 years ago I was asked to serve as Treasurer of Temple Sinai, a position I hold to this day. This has given me the opportunity to work with the clergy, officers, and board members in making sure that our temple's finances remain strong and that this institution we all love will continue to provide a Jewish home for generations to come.

I am a CPA and spent many years in public accounting. I later became the Chief Financial Officer and later Chief Operating Officer of a worldwide diamond and jewelry company.

On a personal note, I enjoy tennis, and I go to 40 Met games a year!
