Traditional Congregation offers the community the experience of Judaism’s rich heritage of Torah learning and mitzvot in a welcoming synagogue environment, which respects our diversity of knowledge and practices.
When Marian moved to St. Louis in 2007, she was asked to "help out in the office at Traditional for a couple of months." A couple of months and 13 years later, she is the Executive Director and chief cheerleader for the congregation, and puts to good use the skills from her previous careers in magazine publishing, staff development training and real estate sales. Marian has served on the Board of JPro St. Louis, an organization dedicated to supporting those who work in the St. Louis Jewish community. She and her husband, Rabbi Seth Gordon, have five wonderful children, four terrific daughters-in-law and one terrific son-in-law, and the seven most adorable grandchildren in the world.
Angela has felt a connection to Traditional Congregation ever since 1999, when she and her husband Zvi were married at the synagogue. She moved to St. Louis with her family in 2006 and joined the staff of Traditional in 2016. She has 6 children and 10 grandchildren. Angela served on the executive committee of Tomchei Shabbos for 11 years. She can be contacted at .
