Lori is a native Houstonian who was not a member of Congregation Beth Yeshurun growing up, but as she likes to say, "she got here as soon as she could". Growing up at a nearby conservative shul, Lori remembers the yearning she had to get to Beth Yeshurun, and is committed to igniting that flame from within the membership and community. She graduated with a B.B.A. in 1980 from the University of Texas at Austin and is a Senior Cruise Consultant at Cruisecenter. Lori was asked to be Chairman of the High Holiday Committee in 2007 and was asked to serve on the board in 2008. In 2012, Lori moved to the position as Senior Advisory Board member to continue her leadership and commitment to Beth Yeshurun. In 2016, she served on Task Force II to help move Beth Yeshurun to be an all around better synagogue for all of its members. In 2017, Lori joined the Strategic Planning Committee, a group committed to change and growth for the future, which went on hold after Hurricane Harvey. As Secretary of the Executive Committee, Lori will continue to advise and to help make Beth Yeshurun the best synagogue it can be. Lori and her husband Benny, have two daughters and two sons-in-law; Allie and Eric Danziger and Meg and Jacob Grossman and are the proud grandparents of one granddaughter, Milly.
