Temple Sinai celebrates with our Rabbi as she was selected one of the Town of Oyster Bay's Distinguished Woman Award
Distinguished Woman in Government: Rabbi Janise Poticha of Massapequa
Although she fits into a multitude of categories, Rabbi Janise Poticha was selected for the government category for her great work with local government to help others.
Following the events of September 11, 2001, Rabbi Janise moved quickly to employ her EMA and chaplaincy skills. After working at ‘Ground Zero’ of the World Trade Center during the initial days of the tragedy, she assisted the City of New York and the American Red Cross in establishing family/help centers. She also volunteered at St. Paul’s Cathedral as a First Responder and participated in the city’s memorial services.
Most recently, following the events of Hurricane Sandy, Rabbi Janise worked with Senator Charles Fuschillo’s office and Assemblyman Saladino to coordinate a donation drive by Long Island Cares at Temple Sinai to help those in need. She helped local families in reaching out to FEMA, was in contact with organizations to help families clean out their flooded homes, and reached countless individuals in need.
