MEET OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS...As you know we are profiling, in no particular order, Members of our Board so that you can get to know those who serve your interest!!!
Faye Goldman has been a member of Agudath Israel with her husband, Michael Landau, since shortly after moving to Ottawa from Toronto in 1991. They have three teenaged children, Jacob, Meera and Talia, who have either graduated from or currently attend the Ottawa Jewish Community School (OJCS). Faye is a past president of the board of OJCS. Faye is a Family Physician and avid runner. This is her second tenure on the board. Faye was the Co-Chair of the Rabbi Search Committee in 2011/2012, was on the organizing committee for the Kol Isha Shabbat, and is a current member of the Steering Committee engaged in talks with Congregation Beth Shalom.
Stuart McCarthy 1st Vice President
Originally from Toronto, Stuart moved to Ottawa in 1988 and joined Agudath Israel 17 years ago. He is married to Eileen-Melnick McCarthy and they have two children, Joshua, 20, studying at University of Toronto and Amanda, 13, who celebrated her bat mitzvah at the shul last year. Stuart joined the Board of Directors four years ago and has been a very active participant in shul affairs, having participated in the original merger task force, overseeing Agudath Israel’s new web site and for the past 18 months as Chair of the Ritual Committee. The most frequent question he’s asked around here is, “McCarthy? That’s a Jewish name?” Answer. Absolutely! His grandfather Joseph converted at the Beth Din in London UK in the 1920s and married into an Orthodox family. There have now been (proudly!) four generations of Jewish McCarthys. When he’s not volunteering his time on shul matters, Stuart is a vice president at Bluesky Strategy Group, a government and public relations firm in the Byward Market.
