Tamah Kushner has been a member of Congregation Tikvat Jacob since 1997 when she moved here with her family from Washington, DC. When CTJ advertised for its first Executive Director, Tamah thought “I want that job.” She brings her non-profit experience to CTJ as well as heartfelt support for the community and her love of Judaism.
As well as being our Executive Director, Tamah periodically teaches adult ed classes and has been our beginning Hebrew teacher for many years. She has three children and a very patient and supportive husband. She can be found most weekdays and almost every Shabbat at CTJ.
