Marc LeVine became Congregation Schaarai Zedek’s Executive Director in 2007. Marc brings thirty years of management experience to the Executive Director position, having been in leadership roles in Fortune 500 companies and two entrepreneurial growth businesses, along with volunteer roles in several non-profit organizations. Marc graduated from Harvard College and has recently completed his MBA.
Marc, his wife Lisa, and their two sons have been members of the Schaarai Zedek for close to twenty years. Both of his sons participate in Schaarai Zedek, having gone through Religious School to Confirmation and Bar Mitzvah in the congregation. Marc’s wife Lisa was previously on Schaarai Zedek’s Board of Trustees and active on several committees.
Marc is thrilled to be a part of the executive leadership for Congregation Schaarai Zedek, not only because it is a wonderful avocation but because “I have seen Schaarai Zedek do so much for my own family. I want to help support and build the congregation so that it can be a wonderful resource for all Reform Jewish families just like it has been for us”.
