Administrator, Rose Sigler
Rose Sigler is the Administrator at the Jewish Center.
She has spent most of her career within the Jewish non-profit field with organizations such as: The American Committee for Shaare Zedek, where she served as the Administrator/Event Coordinator for their Women’s Division; The American Jewish Joint Distribution as the Board Relations Liaison and Missions Coordinator; and with the National Council of Synagogue Youth/Orthodox Union in Michigan as the Administrator.
Rose’s professional expertise is in project management, marketing and event coordination. Her friendly demeanor, her previous experiences, and her analysis of different working situations will be useful in her position at the Jewish Center.
She consistently uses her experience to assist in both her professional roles as well as in volunteer projects with her local synagogue, yeshiva day school and Samcheinu, a national orthodox widows support group.
Rose’s personal background and family history make her a natural for being involved in communal work. As the daughter of Holocaust survivors who started one of the first synagogues in Miami Beach, Florida, Rose learned from her parents and grandparents the tradition of extending kindness and assistance to people from all walks of life.
Rose resides in Passaic, New Jersey, and is the proud mother of Rachel and Yaakov.
Office Manager, Heather Kalderon
Heather Kalderon was born in Cape Town, South Africa. At age 11, Heather emigrated to Israel with her Zionist parents. Heather lives in Bergen Countyn and is fluent in English and Hebrew, and types in both languages.
Variety is the spice of life, agrees Heather, who loves the mix that makes up her Center schedule. Heather has been working for more than 10 years in the office and has witnessed many many changes. She interacts with members and visitors on a daily basis, and always has a friendly smile.
Her assignments range from answering the phone to helping with Adult Ed programs, from compiling the High Holy Day Kits to working with various computer programs and learning something new every day, from dealing with the incoming and outgoing mail and the copy machine to cemetery permits.
Her busy and diverse days mean that as she enters the building each morning she contemplates what interesting new projects will be waiting for her. There’s a great atmosphere among the Center staff, too, and she fondly remembers celebrating a milestone birthday with them a few years ago.
Heather has a son who lives in Tempe, Arizona, a younger son, and a married daughter with two gorgeous granddaughters who live in Israel.
In addition to her time at the Center, Heather spends many hours a week playing tennis, which she enjoys immensely.
