Lee Weintraub and his family have been members of the Beth Emet family for over 35 years. Beth Emet fills an important place in Lee’s life, a place to celebrate, a place to share, a place to learn, a place to give, and a place to create long-lasting and special relationships. Throughout the years Lee has been active in numerous synagogue activities, committees, and task forces; none of which resulted in his graying hair or weight loss. He currently facilitates the work of many talented congregants on the Building Renovation / Steering Committee which has culminated in the completion of Sanctuary/Lobby/Crown Room Renovation and the current focus on the next phase of renovation work. Other areas of his interest include the Master Planning Committee, Chevra Kadisha, chairperson of the Nominating Committee on two occasion (you’d think that he would have learned the first time), the Pathways to Engagement Task Force, the original building committee from 2006 to 2017, and always serves as Rabbi London’s personal art project collaborator. Lee is a licensed architect in 35 states and has recently celebrated the 20th year anniversary of his architecture, interior design, project management, and development firm based in Chicago’s West Loop. His most important projects involve exceeded the expectations of his loving wife, Gita, and the successful launch of their two adult children, Sari and Josh.
