I was born and raised in Gary and at Temple Israel. I am the 2nd generation from my family to become President, following in my father Jerry Rothenberg's footsteps. I have been Temple President since 2014 and prior to that was on the Temple board since 2008 as Financial Secretary and have served as Sisterhood President from 2008-2014. I also taught Sunday School for many years.

I believe that keeping the 106 year tradition of Judaism in Gary is extremely important and dedicate time to continue seeing Temple Israel thrive. I am married with 2 adult children and we live near Temple Israel. My entire family is also involved in various aspects of Temple Israel. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at any of our events.
