Margot B. Valles
Director of Congregational Lifelong Learning
Patty Warshaw has been our administrator since 2003. Prior to her employment at Shaarey Zedek, she served on the Cultural Committee and was a Trustee and Financial Secretary of the Executive Board.
As a congregant, she became a Bat Mitzvah as a member of the 2006 B’nai Mitzvah Class, was inducted into the SZ Yad Squad in December 2009, and continues to chant Torah on Shabbat mornings. She is currently studying to become a B’Nai Mitzvah tutor and Shabbat service leader.
She occasionally spends time in the SZ kitchen preparing Shabbat morning foods, holiday dinners, Bar/Bat Mitzvah Kiddush luncheon and helps Sisterhood, GLTY and other groups in the congregation with the Yom Kippur break-fast, Seder, Purim carnival, special events, etc. 22 years running the only Jewish delicatessen in town (Bagel-Haul Deli) gave her lots of practice.
Patty and her husband Kenny have been married 34 years and have one daughter, Lauren and one dog, Farfel, the golden retriever. She also has a large collection of Pluto items (you will find many around the synangogue) and loves to camp, bicycle and go to the beach.
