On May 4, 1987, Sheila Phillips, became bookkeeper at Temple Shalom so she could work across the street from her children’s school. Just one week later, Stephanie Pinck was hired as the office manager. Ever since, they have been an indispensable team in the running of Temple Shalom.
The pair does so much more than manage the office and temple accounts. They are often called upon to serve as party planners, psychotherapists, office machine repair women, mothers, grief counselors, security guards, custodians, chauffeurs, fashion consultants, personal shoppers, weather reporters, traffic controllers, and much more. They are our ambassadors to the community, as they serve as the first people to greet callers and visitors to our temple.
In 2010, Gale Conti joined the staff in the position of School Administrative Assistant. Gale spent many years working as a Teacher Assistant in our Early Learning Center before assuming this role. When Gale isn’t in her office keeping track of the records for all of our schools, she is ensuring that our teachers, staff and students have everything they need in our classrooms. When people need school related items, they can often be heard saying, “Check with Gale. She will know.”
Stephanie lives with her husband Marty in Old Bridge and has two grown daughters, Lara & Alissa and three wonderful grandchildren. Sheila lives with her husband Jeff in Manalapan and has a daughter, Bernice, a son, Robert, a son-in-law, John, daughter-in-law Kerry and four grandchildren. Gale lives in Aberdeen with her husband Nick and has two sons, Nicholas and Danny.
