Rebecca and her husband Gregg have been members of Beth Emet for 28 years. Rebecca started attending Shabbat services while at Northwestern University and learned to chant torah with then Cantor Jeffrey Klepper, so it was a natural Jewish home once she and Gregg settled in the area. Their three children Aaron (20), Hannah (17), and Andrea (17) attended the Beth Emet Early Childhood program and have continued to be active in Beit Sefer and as Madrichim. If you come to worship on a Saturday morning and bring your young children to the babysitting room, you will see Andrea every week! Rebecca has been involved in the Beth Emet community in a variety of ways. In the area of music, she is a long time member of the choir, chants Torah, participated in multiple Purim Spiels, is a member of Kol Emet, and has been known to substitute for our cantor on Friday night and Saturday morning. She is proud to have served as co-chair of the last two Cantorial Search committees which brought us Cantor Arik Luck and Cantor Susan Lewis Friedman. She has also been involved in other areas of the community including Beth Emet dining out, youth, Shiva leading, and several previous stints on the board and executive committee. She is thrilled to be serving as one of the vice presidents for the upcoming year. She is a regular volunteer baker at Curt’s Café in Evanston. She is an avid runner and ran her first half marathon last year. Professionally, along the theme of longevity, Rebecca has been working for IBM for 28 years in various sales and sales support positions.
