Laurie Mandell, a native New Yorker, has lived in Cleveland since 1996. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Emory University. She spent almost twenty five years in advertising sales, including fifteen at The Cleveland Jewish News. After working in various school settings, Laurie is thrilled to be joining The Temple Tifereth-Israel. She looks forward to developing and maintaining relationships with synagogue members, community partners, and guests. In her spare time she enjoys reading, working out, and listening to The Spectrum. Laurie has two sons, Jared and Chase, and lives in Solon with her husband Adam and very clingy Cavapoo Georgia.
