Our Staff

Temple Sinai employs full-time and part-time staff positions in education, membership, finance, communications, technology, development, maintenance, events, and administrative support. Temple Sinai hires only the best and brightest talent to deliver the highest quality service to our members. Our staff is committed to excellence.


Drew Barkley joined Temple Sinai's leadership in February 2017. Previously he led Reform Jewish congregations in Chicago and California. 

Drew is one of only about 30 people in the country to have earned his Fellow in Temple Administration through the National Association for Temple Administration, where he is a former National Board Member. “Most people think those of us that pursue this path are crazy…executive directors either have 5-page job descriptions, or 3 words…everything and anything, anytime”. You can reach out to Drew anytime at (847) 651-6613 or [email protected]. He is always looking for tour guides or folks to accompany him to ballgames.
