Beryl Strauss

Executive Director


PJTC welcomed Beryl in 2016 as its Executive Director. Having worked in the Jewish world for the over 18 years as the Early Childhood Education Director at four SoCal Jewish institutions, Beryl brought her knowledge and experience of temple life to our congregation. With her highly successful track-record as an administrator, she also holds a Masters Degree in Business Administration, is a Mentor Director for the California Early Childhood Mentor Program, and was a past President of the Builders of Jewish Education's Director's Network.


Beryl prides herself on being a self-directed and proactive administrator, and has strong experience managing, directing and providing leadership and guidance to hundreds of employees, volunteers, and community leaders. She was immediately impressed with the caring and commitment of the PJTC community, clergy and staff and is thrilled to be putting her skills to good use at PJTC.


A native Angeleno, Beryl is the proud mother of daughters Stacey and Carrie, son-in-law Jorge, and future son-in-law Michael. When she is not hard at work keeping the PJTC machine running smoothly, you can find her spending time with her family and golfing.
