Baylene Wacks Feldman - ECEC/Israeli Affairs

Synagogue life has been central to my upbringing, having participated in weekly Shabbat services and volunteered as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutor, involved in Kadima and USY, while at Beth Ahm Israel. A David Posnack Hebrew Day School alum and former Camp Ramah Darom staffer, I am excited to make my way back home to South Florida after studying and working in Washington, D.C., Israel and most recently, New York City. Now, as part of the B’nai Aviv family, we hope to immerse our children in Jewish communal involvement. Our daughters, who both received their Hebrew names at B’nai Aviv, are thriving in ECEC and Camp B’nai Aviv.  Having spent most of my professional career working at AIPAC, I am proud to be a part of a synagogue community that maintains the importance of Israel and a strong U.S.-Israel relationship as a core value.  

Brian Gotkin - Social Action/Israeli Affairs


I was born in New York, but grew up in Hollywood Florida.  I have been a member of B’nai Aviv for the past 8 years and was previously a member of Beth Ahm Israel.  We moved to B’nai Aviv the same year that Rabbi Watstein joined the synagogue.  I have been married to my wife, Gina since 1997.  We met when I was doing my Internal Medicine Residency in Chicago.  We have two children, Matthew age 18 and Sara age 16, and  they had a B’nai Mitzvah at B’nai Aviv 5 years ago.  My son Matthew is now getting ready to attend the University of Wisconsin in Madison and my daughter Sara is finishing up her junior year in high school.  I have been practicing Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine in Hollywood since 2000 and am on staff at Memorial Healthcare System.  We enjoy travelling with the kids every summer.  I am excited to join the B’nai Aviv Board and become more active in the synagogue.  Through unfortunate events this past year, I have gotten to know many of the minyanaires and look forward to maintaining those relationships.

Sharon Horowitz - Education

Torah, Israel and the Jewish People are at the core of who I am.   Meeting so many members at B'nai Aviv who also strive for these important concepts has been an exciting journey for me and for my family.  As a Jewish communal executive, engaging in the Jewish world has allowed for both creativity and dedication.  Whether it be as a founder of the March of the Living, creator of new initiatives as the Director of the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach, or the more than 30 times in Poland and Israel, the synagogue is the most important gatekeeper for Jewish living today.  It is my hope to be able to bring my experience in the Jewish world to this wonderful community of B'nai Aviv.
