A Note From the President

Jay Stein
I am honored to serve as Congregation Beth Israel’s president for the coming two years. I look forward to working with the new Executive Board, with our energetic Board Members, our talented and passionate staff and of course with our two amazing Rabbis and our wonderful Cantor. I would like to thank all of our Executive Officers and Board Members for their contributions during the past two years and I would like to thank all of our Committees and Committee Chairs for their hard work as well. Also, an Extra Large thank you to Marc Lerner, our Immediate Past President and Steve Bandler, his predecessor, for guiding CBI through a unique set of challenges brought on mostly by the recent economic turmoil. As I am sure you are aware, our programs and services were not lessened, in fact we increased programming, services and initiatives, and we are just getting started.  

I hope to get to know those of you whom I don’t know. I am very easy to get in touch with and am interested in hearing all of your ideas and suggestions. You may reach me at my office at 480-949-9011 and on my cell at 480-570-1411. My email is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Also, you will see me at services regularly, usually with four young children in tow. Stop me, say hello, as you can imagine, adult conversation is welcomed!

If you have an inclination, there are many ways to get involved. As much as we would like to see you more often, I think you would enjoy any time spent contributing to our Jewish Community. I learned a lesson from my business mentor, my Uncle Sid, who in turn learned it from his business mentor. The lesson about charity: “You get more than you give,” and my personal experience is that is true every time.

L’Shalom, Jay Stein
