Jodi Toledano

Executive Director

want to begin by thanking everyone for the warm welcomes I have received over my first few months at Shaare Zion. First to introduce myself, I have been happily married to my husband Moshe Toledano for seventeen years and we have been blessed with two beautiful daughters, Leah (13) and Sarah (7). While my professional experience has varied from job training Coordinator to Director of a government subsidized daycare, I have always worked closely with people and am passionate about helping organizations achieve their goals. 

In the short time that I’ve been here, I have already begun to appreciate how much history exists at Shaare Zion. I am inspired by the level of engagement I’ve seen throughout the Congregation, from Past Presidents, former and current Committee Members, and the many Congregants I’ve had the pleasure to interact with. The commitment to your Synagogue is reflected through your deep involvement.

I have already collaborated with many of you and look forward to our future collaborations with the goal of ensuring the Congregation’s continued success for generations to come.  I truly believe that the future of Shaare Zion will be built through the synergies we create together and I am honoured to play my part in the Congregation’s future. Together we will continue moving towards the future while always remembering to respect, preserve, and learn from the past. 

Wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year,

Shana Tova U’Metukah!
