Randi joined Leo Baeck Temple in 1995 as her eldest daughter enrolled at the Early Childhood Center; and has been embraced by and embracing this special community ever since. Prior to becoming President, Randi served on the Board of Trustees for one year before becoming CFO for four years, helping guide this community through some challenging financial times and the renovation of our main sanctuary. Randi originally became involved through the Caring Community and eventually chaired that committee. Randi has served on the Lech L’cha Capital Campaign and now co-chairs the Kadima Capital Campaign. Randi and her family have traveled twice on LBT congregational Israel trips that have been pivotal in her relationship and understanding of Israel and created lasting bonds with her fellow travelers. She joins her predecessors on the leadership team of LBT’s Israel Matters Initiative.
“A lot of life has happened to me since joining LBT. My LBT community has brought tremendous spiritual and emotional support. I came to realize the value of community slowly. I hope that our members catch on faster than I did!”
Randi is the mother of Jessica (23) University of Hawaii, Samantha (20) NYU, Eric (20) Dartmouth College, and Ariella (15).
Lloyd and his family joined LBT in 2006. Feeling embraced by the community, he quickly became involved as a member of our ReImagine task force, whose mission was to find better, more meaningful opportunities to engage people of all ages, in Jewish Learning. An outgrowth of their work was Yom Limmud, our congregational day of learning, and Lloyd served as the first co-chair, with Rabbi Karen Strok. During this time, Lloyd’s mother fell ill and passed away. The comfort and support that he received from the Leo Baeck Temple community was overwhelming. It solidified his personal understanding of the benefit and importance of being a part of a community, and fueled his desire to expand his involvement.
Lloyd next served as a member of the Cantorial Search Committee which brought Cantor Kates to LBT. He joined the Board of Trustees in 2009, and in 2011 Lloyd joined the Executive Committee when he was nominated to serve as the Vice President of Lifelong Learning. As VP, Lloyd chaired the search committee which brought Rabbi Lisa Berney to our Temple as Assistant Rabbi/Director of Lifelong Learning.
His commitment to education and his desire for us to have a campus that allowed students of all ages to learn in an environment more conducive to learning then we had at the time, led him to another role as VP of Facilities, Grounds, and Improvements. Lloyd spearheaded the transformative renovation of our campus, from the design phase through construction, which resulted in our new Religious School buildings and the Peachy and Mark Levy Beit Midrash. Thanks to his efforts, we have a beautiful campus in which to pray, learn, and come together as a community.
In his “other life,” Lloyd is a principal in Piller/Segan, an independent television and film production company. Lloyd is married to Allison and is the proud father of Emily (19) and Rose (16).
