Originally from Pittsburgh, Pa. Morry relocated to Wellington in 2004. He has always belonged to Conservative Synagogues throughout his adult life. All three of his adult children attended Solomon Schechter Day School in Cleveland, Ohio. He holds a BS degree in Pharmacy where he worked as a pharmacist for 10 years after graduating and then moved into the real estate sector of retail pharmacy working as a Director of Real Estate for CVS Pharmacy.
After moving to Wellington and “interviewing” a number of Shuls, he decided that a “small start up” synagogue appealed to him and his wife, Sallee. He has had many different roles in TBJ as a board member, co-president, president and now sharing the presidency again with Rebecca Blitman.
“TBJ is my family and like all families I have a vested interest in MY Shul”
A native Floridian, Rebecca Blitman grew up in a Conservative Jewish home in Miami. She attended college in Florida and has a Master’s degree in Public Administration
Rebecca started her professional career with the State of Florida, Department of Transportation, as a project manager. After a few years, she went to work for Broward County, Transit Division, to manage the administrative activities as the Associate Director. After almost 20 years in public service in Broward County, Rebecca, her husband Jeff and daughter Sydney, moved further north to Palm Beach. They have been Wellington residents for 7 years now and since moving here, Rebecca purchases and renovates homes for rent or resale.
Rebecca feels so lucky to have found a welcoming Kehillah here at Temple B’nai Jacob of Wellington and is honored to be in the position of Co-President with Morry Silverman. “My TBJ family is a big part of what makes Wellington home for me and I am so excited about our future.”
