DPP_0567Kehillat Ma’arav is pleased to honor our Executive Director Kathie Rose. Not only has Kathie been the face of KM to our local community since 1999, she has also been an accomplished professional in managing the administrative side of the synagogue. As you have undoubtedly seen, she is instrumental in the efficient operations of KM, while promoting a warm and welcoming environment. Kathie also represents KM in the larger Jewish community, playing an active role in the Professional Association of Temple Administrators (PATA), and on the national level as a board member for the North American Association of Synagogue Executives (NAASE).

Kathie began her professional life as an RN. She worked in the emergency room at the old LA New Hospital at Pico and Beverly Drive. Many years later, seeking a change, she used her finely honed managerial and people skills from the ER to move into the world of Synagogue management. After working at University Synagogue as assistant Executive Director, she came to KM, where she has been for the past 14 years. Kathie is married to Phil, the love of her life, and they make their home in Culver City. Her passion is bicycle riding and she and Phil travel far and wide to participate in 100 mile Century rides and marathons for charitable causes.
