Tamar Fix, Executive Director

 Tamar joined Lincoln Square Synagogue as   Executive Director in July of 2016. Tamar   appreciates the eclectic nature of Synagogue and   community center work as it offers the opportunity   and excitement of being in a constant state of   learning and growth. One of her greatest joys is   connecting with people on a multi-generational level   and she feels gratified in working at Lincoln Square   Synagogue and getting to know the members.   Tamar brings her strong interpersonal and   administrative skills to LSS as well as her personal   commitment to Modern Orthodox Jewish life,   tradition and community. Though her goals as ED are   lofty, chief among them is to become an honorable   link in LSS's humble and historical 1964   beginnings. It is truly an honor to be part of such a venerable institution. Tamar received her B.S. from Queens College and earned her M.A. from Hofstra University in Marriage & Family Therapy. Tamar completed the third cohort of UJA and Columbia University's Executive Leadership Program. In addition to her Synagogue & Jewish communal work, Tamar is a published author whose writing has appeared in both book form and periodicals. Fluent in Hebrew & raised steeped in both Israeli and American culture, Tamar is equally at home in each. Tamar currently resides in Queens, NY with her son Nate.
