TRZ's Executive Committee

 Susan Lukenbill - President

This year marks my family's 18th year of membership at TRZ. Like many others we joined when our children entered preschool. But through the years the synagogue's many spiritual, social, and educational offerings have enriched my life, and this congregation has become like a second family. The last year has shown us the value of community, and I look forward to watching this community continue to thrive as a center of Jewish life in the North Valley.

 

Michelle Dean - Executive VP

My family and I have been members of TRZ for almost 18 years! With three generations of our family here, and the amazing friends we’ve made throughout the years, TRZ is like a second home for us. A true community.

 

Jeff "Yank" Stern - Administrative VP

 

 

J.P. Wolk - Religious VP

I have been a member of this synagogue for over 26 years. I have always enjoyed attending all Shabbat, Festival, and High Holiday services. While our temple community offers a variety of educational and social programs to meet our needs, I do believe that the foundation of the Conservative movement centers around religious participation. I look forward to "davening" with you.

 

 

David Perren - Administrative VP

I have had the privilege of belonging to Temple Ramat Zion for 45 years.  TRZ has meant a lot to me and my family for every one of those years.  Of course, the religious aspect of membership is extremely important to me, but the other benefits of membership have been equally important to me too.  Our Chavurah has been together for close to 44 years and the value of the friendship formed is priceless.  TRZ must continue to exist and prosper in the Northwest San Fernando Valley. 

 

Audrey Morchy - Education VP

I have been a member of TRZ for 8 years.  My three children have participated in Preschool, Religious School, Dor Atid, and Confirmation.  I love being part of the Education Committee.  I started off by attending PTA meetings for Religious School and wanted to become more informed.  I then became the Religious School Committee Chair and attended those meetings to help with enhancing the school's curriculum.  I then moved up to Education Chair and continued to attend the Religious School meetings and started to attend the Preschool Committee meetings as well.  In the meantime, I have attended the Ritual Committee to represent the Education side of the synagogue.   I am very excited to be on the Executive Committee as your new Education VP. 

 

Aaron Simon - Membership VP

I have been a member of TRZ since 1990 and went went to religious school from 1st grade through confirmation.  TRZ has been a very important part of my life including my Bar Mitzvah, wedding and most recently the baby naming of my daughter.  My hope is that all Jewish families in the area can experience the joy I continue to feel at Temple Ramat Zion.

 

Stephanie Osadschey - Fundraising VP

I have been a member since 1989. My involvement at TRZ has evolved over the last 11 years   The temple has become apart of my family through Shabbat and holiday services, forming lifetime friendships and the feeling of a community who is present when someone is in need.  When I have time, I enjoy listening to music, reading, and traveling.

 

Judi Greenberg - Secretary

I am currently the Secretary of the Board and previously was the Chair of the Education Committee.  My husband and I joined the temple in 2015 but I was raised here.  I became a Bat Mitzvah here and was confirmed also.

 

Marc Osadchey - Men's Club President

My family has been members of TRZ for well over 30 years and now I have the privilege of serving as the president of the Men's Club. There is nothing like stepping onto the temple grounds and feeling overwhelming pride in knowing that our synagogue continues to serve as a second home for the Jewish lifeblood of our community. 

 
 
 
 

Diane Schwarz - Sisterhood Co-President

 

 

Carol Maller - Sisterhood Co-President

As a TRZ member for 51 years, I know the importance of supporting a synagogue.  There were those members who made sure that the synagogue was there for myself and my family.  I want that tradition to continue for our current and future members.  I have been privileged to be part of the leadership over the years, most importantly as a Past TRZ President.  I plan on continuing in leadership roles in future years as well.
