President’s Message

Dear Friends,
As the new synagogue president, not having grown up in
Little Rock, I thought I would share with you some of my background.

I grew up in Tyler, Texas. I am the youngest of five children. My Dad was in the oil business. My mother ran roughshod over 4 girls and 1impish boy!

Both sets of my grandparents immigrated to the United States from Poland in the late 1800’s. They were no longer alive when I entered the world. However, I heard many wonderful stories about them from my siblings, parents, aunts and uncles.

Tyler had a Conservative synagogue, (where my family went) and a Reform temple. I attended Hebrew school 2 times a week, Friday and Saturday Shabbat services, Sunday school and holidays. A lot of children at the synagogue were my cousins. This was due to my father having six brothers each with at least 3 children!

After graduating from college, I started my career in the Food and Beverage industry in Dallas. I met the love of my life, Fred, got married and moved to Little Rock, where he grew up. I found my passion by becoming a fundraiser for Easter Seals. Over the next few years, I fundraised for the Arkansas Arts Center, Arkansas Food Bank and Arkansas Peace Week.

Forward to present day….

I look forward to Agudath Achim becoming a thriving, fully inclusive Conservation congregation. Please feel get in touch with me if you have questions or want to chat.
Toni
