On June 1, 2021, Melissa Brown, a partner in our New Jersey Office, was honored by Temple Beth Sholom (“TBS”) for her volunteer work and service to the community. Melissa serves as the Chair of the Life Long Learning Committee and a member of the Board of Directors at TBS. Since March of 2020, Melissa has worked closely with the Director of Congregational Learning to imagine educational programming for the synagogue’s three schools to allow for continuity of education during COVID. Melissa spearheaded taskforces for the early childhood center, the religious school and the high school working closely with the schools’ faculty and parents to implement remote learning. During that time, the beloved Director of the Eric B. Jacobs Early Childhood Education Center advised that she would be retiring.
