I have been married to my wife, Ellen, for 36 years and we have two grown sons, Joshua and Aaron. We have lived in Albany for over thirty years and have been members of Temple Israel for almost as long. I have been involved in almost every aspect of the synagogue as a volunteer, committee member, or chairperson. Professionally, I am a chemical engineer working in the industrial environment throughout the Capital District

 Keegan Bailey, Executive Vice President

Dr. Shelley Justa, Vice President 

 I have been a member of Temple Israel since 1994 when my husband Stephen and I and our two sons moved to the Capital Region from Flemington, NJ. Our lives have been greatly enriched by the vibrant  Jewish community we have embraced and have been embraced by at Temple Israel and the Albany  Jewish community at large. I am a family physician and work for Community Care Physicians at Clifton Park Family Medicine. I love hiking, biking, skiing, singing and Israeli Dance. I am currently the chairperson of the Israeli Dance committee, and a member of the Temple Israel High Holiday choir.

Paul  Goldberg, Vice President

Temple Israel has been our family’s spiritual home since 1956. Three generations of the Goldberg        family have enjoyed and benefited from the spiritual, educational and social opportunities that the      Temple Israel community provides to its members. My wife Sally and I have served in many                    leadership roles which we hope to be able to continue in the years to come.

Marcia Rosenberg, Treasurer

I have been a member of TI since 1991 when I sent my daughter to Camp Givah and Sunday                  school, and I volunteer for both.  Since my retirement from State service I attend daily minyan      and Shabbat services. Because of this I have found a sense of community and have made life                 long friends. I volunteer on numerous committees and plan on continuing to do so for many years.

Jo-Ann Lubinski, Vice President

My husband Bob Miller and I have been members of Temple Israel since the early 1980’s. Over the years our family has been involved in a variety of volunteer, educational  and social opportunities. To us Temple Israel has always been an inclusive and embracing community leading to lifelong friendships. I am retired from the DOT as a policy and program analyst.

Ross Andersen, Secretary

My wife Carole and I have been longtime members of Temple Israel. We were not from the Albany area originally and chose Temple Israel for its tradition and commitment to Jewish values. I have served on the Board of Trustees as well as several committees and really enjoy the many adult education opportunities at TI. I formerly worked as a program manager and now enjoy retirement.
