A community synagogue for progressive Conservative Judaism, welcoming to all.
Keith Satter, President
Keith Satter spent over 30 years in trade association management, marketing and marketing research before changing careers and moving into the world of education. A fifth grade teacher in Darien, CT, Keith uses his business background to proactively connect with his “clients,” both with parents and students, helping them mature and learn the importance of building successful relationships, communicating and dealing with the variety of data that is presented to them in today’s world.
Keith was brought up in the Conservative tradition, spending his youth at Congregation Beth El in Norwalk, CT. After stints in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, Keith returned to Norwalk and rejoined Beth El where he took pride in being a lay leader and davening Shabbat services. He was a valued congregational leader, serving as Vice President of Education and then three years as President, where he was involved in membership relations and the recruitment of a new rabbi, and new education and pre-school directors.
After his engagement to long-time JCCH congregant, Betsy Bernstein, Keith became a JCCH member three years ago and is a Shabbat regular and Sunday minyannaire. He can be frequently found at the door of the JCCH sanctuary, providing a personal greeting to all who enter. We are fortunate to have Keith’s rich leadership experience and ability to navigate both the complicated business and ritual sides of the modern day Conservative synagogue.
