Volunteer Spotlight

Roger Warren

When did you join The Community Synagogue?

Joined the Synagogue in 2015.  My mom, Gloria was a member from 1995 until her death in 2015.

In what capacity do you volunteer?

As the chairman of the grounds committee, I make sure that the incredible beauty of our property is maintained.  This is a result of a team collaboration lead also by Joanne Fried, Gil Rosenthal (chairman Emeritus), the grass cutters, the landscapers, the temple maintenance crew, the arborist and the irrigation people.

Not only do we maintain, but we also create.  We have a few small projects in the works for the Spring, one of which is very exciting and will make the back yard even more beautiful.

What is one interesting thing that people may not know about you?

One might glean from my volunteer efforts that I am very passionate about gardening.  At home, I specialize in roses and tomatoes. As a veterinarian, I have spent beyond my normal practice, my professional life fighting for animal rights and providing free care for the pets of people less fortunate.
