About Howard Peyser: Howard was a man who participated fully in every aspect of our congregation’s life. From the time he and his family joined our temple in 1987, until his tragic passing in 2001, Howard was involved. He served on and chaired a broad range of temple committees, including Program, Membership, Special Events, Fundraising and Budget & Finance. He joined the Board of Trustees in 1991 and was on the Executive Committee for five years. Howard was completing his second term on the Board when he was suddenly taken from us. He will be remembered not only for the breadth and depth of his service, but also for the humility with which he undertook each task. Howard never sought the limelight, and when we needed him, he never said no.
