President's Message
Howard Sislin


I would like to introduce myself to you. I am Howard Sislin and I was elected as the new President of our White Meadow Temple Family. I have lived in Rockaway my entire life and have grown up at White Meadow Temple and am now raising my twins Ryan and Skyler here with my wife, Jen.

I would personally like to take this opportunity to thank Stephanie Levine and Eric Balis for the great job they have done as co-presidents over the last 2 years. With their leadership they have paved the way for an exciting future. Another thank you to our outgoing executive board and board of trustees. You all continue to push forward and are a team I am proud to be part of. Without the time, effort, and commitment of those truly committed to the team, like Rabbi Charlie, Juliette and Mindy, the Board of Trustees, and member volunteers, White Meadow Temple could not exist.

My hope for the upcoming year is to engage all of you in various ways. I have some exciting ideas that I am looking forward to sharing with all of you. Please come out and support the Temple at one or many of our upcoming events, such as Festival Day in July, Shabbat on the Beach throughout the summer and even by attending our Friday or Shabbat Services.

I look forward to hearing any ideas that you have for our White Meadow Temple Family. Please feel free to reach out to me through the Temple if you would like to discuss any ideas. From my family to yours, we wish you a happy, safe and fun-filled summer.

Thank you once again and I wish you all a relaxing summer.

Howard Sislin
