Meet Our Staff

Gail Rosenberg, Office Manager

Gail Rosenberg is the proud parent of two and the grandmother of three. She has worked as the Office Manager of West End Temple since April 2012. She retired in 2010 from the NYC Department of Education as a High School Assistant Principal of Students with Special Needs. She started her career in education as a Paraprofessional for Students with Multiple Handicaps, returned to Queens College where she received her BS in Home Economics Education, Masters in Special Education and Advanced Certificate in Administration and Supervision. As a single parent she could not have accomplished this without the strong, unwavering support of her two sons. Her years in education taught her much about people, responsibilities and timelines; she is able to use this knowledge as she deals with the day-to-day operations of the Temple.
