Jeff Spitzer-Resnick

As a founding member of Shaarei Shamayim, it is my great pleasure to continue to serve as our community’s president. Over the past year, I am pleased to report that we have experienced continued growth in our membership. We now have 165 member households. 

When my wife, Sheryl, and I joined with others to create our wonderful community thirty years ago, we dreamed of creating an inclusive community which welcomes everyone who wants to be a part of our Reconstructionist and Renewal community. We are truly blessed to see our dream come true as we continue to grow and develop.

We welcome people of all ages, abilities, sexual orientations, and styles of worship, as well as interfaith couples, Jews by choice, people of color, and those seeking a Judaism that meets them where they are. We have established many new havurot (fellowship groups) so that everyone can find kinship within our community. If you seek a welcoming Jewish community, we invite you to attend any of our activities, including services, Shabbat potlucks, Bet Sefer for our community's children, adult education programs, and many other events. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns or just want to get together for a cup of coffee.
