Executive Director and Shaliach Tzibur
Hank is a Cincinnati native. He attended Walnut Hills High School then graduated with a degree in
Public Administration from Miami University Ohio. After working as operations manager for a local
food distributor he found his true niche as Synagogue Administrator – his love for congregants and
willingness to go the extra mile makes him invaluable. He has diligently worked to manage every
aspect of synagogue life for the past twnty-two years. It’s not surprising to see him changing a light bulb one moment and then leading Shacharit services the next. He couldn’t be prouder of his children
and their accomplishments, his daughter Emily currently lives and works in LA, California and Max is working at a firm in Chicago, IL.
