OUR BOARD

President, Marc Warshawsky

Marc grew up in the NYC area and met his lovely wife Rebecca in Cambridge, MA where they were married 38 years ago. With 4 kids and 7 grandkids, some in Highlands Ranch and some in Dallas life is busy. Marc spent over 25 years in the computer industry as an engineer and a manager, working first in Massachusetts and later in Texas. After the crash in 2008, Marc launched a new career in Real Estate in Austin which he successfully migrated to Summit County. With a 2nd home in Summit County for many years, our dream was to figure out how to relocate and be in the mountains full time.  That dream became reality in 2019. We love Summit County and everything it has to offer and plan to be here for a very long time. Once we arrived, we immediately discovered SOS. We love the progressive informality of it all. Rebecca jumped in virtually immediately with both feet - because that’s what she does -  and started volunteering at SOS.  Marc is excited to embark on this new role as President of SOS.

Vice President, Alan Reingold

Alan first started coming to Summit County to ski in 1973 while attending The University of Texas at Austin. He has never missed a year since then. Upon graduating UT in 1975, he moved to Colorado seeking to begin his career as a CPA. After a short stint in Fort Collins, a position opened up in Summit County which he accepted. In 1978, Alan moved to Houston, TX, to join his father in a wholesale plumbing supply business. Knowing how badly he was going to miss living in Frisco, he purchased a condo before moving that would be a second home until 2017. Alan met the woman of his dreams, Pamela, in 1982, and married in 1983. After her first visit to Frisco, she was sold on visiting as often as possible. In 1986, the business was sold, and eventually Alan went back into accounting. After being in corporate accounting, he moved into the not for profit sector, and in 2004, accepted the position of Chief Financial Officer at Houston’s Jewish Family Service, where he remained until he retired in October 2019. Upon retirement, Pam and Alan moved to their second home in Frisco which they purchased in 2017. Their first experience with SOS was in 2016 when they attended a Community Seder. That evening made Pam and Alan feel that there was Jewish Community there to get to know and enjoy in their upcoming retirement. Pam and Alan can be found on the downhill  slopes, Nordic trails, hiking trails, Golf course (both disk and conventional), fishing, and biking. They have 2 sons who reside in Houston who have both been skiing since they were toddlers!

 

Treasurer, Richard Lepie

Richard Lepie is a wanderer by Nature. He lived in 5 states before the age of 5. Grammar school years were spent in Boston, Massachusetts. Not being allowed to escape to Europe for University, he compromised and attended McGill University in Montreal. He was seduced by Betsy Ross and spent the next four years in Philadelphia at Jefferson Medical College. Next it was off to Jewish Hospital of St Louis for a residency in Internal Medicine. The wind then blew across the Atlantic to Queens Hospital in London. The wind kept blowing east for a two year stint in Africa working for missionaries in Ethiopia and Malawi. He finally returned to the USA as Chief Medical Resident at Kern General in Bakersfield, California. . A change of mind led to a new start as a resident in Ophthalmology in Buffalo, NY. Arlyne appeared. He married. There were children and he is still in Buffalo. He has had a home in Summit County for over twenty years and has been a member of the Congregation for almost that long. The lore of the Mountain is calling to make Silverthorne more permanent. Not only does he still practice Ophthalmology, but he runs a Travel Agency, guides tours, manages an Office Complex, is Treasurer for his Buffalo Congregation, teaches skiing to youth at Keystone and dabbles in real estate.

Secretary, Terry Whitehouse

Terry and her husband Richard have been splitting their time between their home in DC and their home in Frisco since 2017. They came for the skiing and fell in love with the summers as the saying goes. They have really enjoyed being members of SOS and appreciate the warmth and receptivity of the SOS community. They have two sons; one lives in Baltimore and one lives in Denver so they are lucky to be able spend time with each of them. Terry was a CPA in her first career but has been spending time in more creative pursuits of late. She received her yoga teaching certificate 5 years ago and before the pandemic was volunteering as a bone marrow currier transporting “life” to transplant patients internationally. Currently, she is working on a certificate in Health and Wellness Coaching at Maryland University of Integrative Health. Terry enjoys skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, Mahjong and reading.

Director of Social Action,

Dreams of skiing the mountains of Colorado brought Amy and her husband, Andy, to Summit County after raising twins, Sasha and Noah (25) in Sherman Oaks, CA. Originally from Harrisburg, PA, Amy is a former TV and Film Casting Director and Talent Agent having worked at Disney, Universal and NBC. While living in LA, Amy was an enthusiastic member of grass roots congregation, NASHUVA, led by Rabbi Naomi Levy. In 2012, she experienced a transformative adventure to Israel- a kind of Birthright trip for Moms, sponsored by Jewish Women’s Initiative. Skiing, tennis, pickleball, theater, film. Mah Jongg, canasta, and Happy Hours are her passions. Amy is grateful for the warm welcome to the SOS community. She’s looking forward to learning more about the area and organizing fulfilling social action projects for the congregation. Amy came to ski but can’t wait to see and feel all the wonders of Summers in Summit.

Ruth is originally from the Washington, D.C. suburbs. She and her husband Larry moved to Colorado in 1980.

Their son lives in Centennial with his wife and 15 month old precious daughter. Ruth and Larry moved into their vacation home in Frisco two years ago after finding themselves spending more time year round in Summit County than in Evergreen and the front range.  Recently they made the move to Breckenridge. After making Summit County their permanent home, they joined SOS,  and now feel like they have been members forever!

Immediate Past President,
Margaret Gilbert

Margaret and her husband always knew that when they retired, Colorado would be their destination.  They have been skiing out at Aspen/Snowmass for over 30 years, but that just became too far when their daughter Lindsay got married, moved to Highlands Ranch and began a family. Finding Summit County and SOS was beshert for them.  Everything just fell into place and SOS was a huge piece of that. They felt everyone was very welcoming and made so many friends right off the bat. For Margaret, it was great to have found women with similar interests in hiking, skiing, cooking, knitting and who knew, Mah Jong! And the outdoors in general. She was happy to volunteer for whatever was needed at SOS. She had been very active at their congregation of 30 years in New York, having served on many committees, including being on the executive board for about 10 years. So she was happy to have a new Jewish home that seemed to need her as well. Margaret is honored to have served as our President.

Angela and her family moved to Summit County in 2002 and joined SOS shortly thereafter. She has been our Administrative Assistant since 2005 and has enjoyed watching the congregation evolve.
