WJC Spring Gala to Honor Randi Klaber & Susan Lurie
Randi Klaber joined Westchester Jewish Center in 1992 and is a longtime WJC Trustee and a past WJC Officer. As a two time Sisterhood President she helped revitalize this essential organization for the women in the community. Randi is involved in committees as varied as Musical Enrichment, Gala planning and the interior design of the building. She has been involved in several search committees and helps care for seniors in our community.
Randi is an Interior Designer and freelance graphic designer by trade. She’s an oil painter and member of the Mamaroneck Artists’ Guild. She brings her artistry skills to WJC as well. She has designed advertising materials and logos and a painting that hangs in the memorial chapel.
Randi has been instrumental in building WJC into a revered and vibrant center of our Jewish lives. Randi has played an important role in the lives of 500 member families who call WJC their second home.
Susan Lurie has been part of the Larchmont/Mamaroneck community for over 30 years. She became Executive Director of the Westchester Jewish Center 16 years ago after receiving a call from a congregant at WJC who was on the search committee for a new director there. She came to WJC after a twenty year career in Jewish Community Centers in New York. What has kept Susan at WJC for all this time has been the interesting and diverse work; but even more than that has been the relationships and the feeling of home and family for so many congregants.
Susan has been involved in every facet of WJC life. Over the years, Susan and the WJC leaders have worked together implementing innovative methods and programs such as a major building campaign and construction and the development of a strategic plan to make the many segments of synagogue life more engaging and responsive to the needs of its congregants.
Susan always says that the most rewarding part of the job is her contact with the people of WJC, whether it is working with volunteers or helping congregants. As a face of WJC, she is always warm and welcoming. After 16 years Susan has decided to retire and she reports with great pleasure about all the congregants that have come by to see her since the announcement was made. .
