It is with mixed feelings that I announce that Patti Shaul, Cantors' Assistant, will be leaving her position at BJBE this Friday. Patti's husband, Jeff, has already started an exciting new job opportunity in New Jersey, so she will now be able to join him following the recent sale of their home. Patti has been with BJBE for two years and distinguished herself through the strong administrative support she has given the cantors, the lasting relationships she has established with congregants - particularly B'nai Mitzvah families - and for being the reliable "go to" person of the office team. We wish Patti and Jeff the best of luck. I'd also like to take this opportunity to welcome Daniella Dubrow, the new Cantors' Assistant. Daniella's strong interpersonal and organizational skills will be an asset in her new role. She recently served as a seasonal recruiter for Crate & Barrel following her role as Assistant Store Manager at Osco Drug. We are delighted to have Daniella join the BJBE team. Please stop by the office to meet her when you're at the synagogue.
