President Phyllis Spector has been involved with CTI since 1976, serving as President since 2013. Prior to assuming her current role, she happily served as Education Vice President, Executive Vice President and President of the Sisterhood. A teacher for more than 30 years, Mrs. Spector studied Hebrew and Judaic studies at Young Israel and Herzliah Hebrew Teachers Institute in Manhattan. She holds a Bachelor's Degree from Brooklyn College and a Master's Degree from Queens College and has taught at CTI's Hebrew school and other Long Island synagogues. She feels especially grateful to have been in a position to be able to oversee the synagogue's recent comprehensive and successful renovations. Under her leadership, CTI has made significant progress in transforming itself into a vibrant part of our pluralistic quilt.
