Katie Schneider, Interim Director

Katie is happy to have been named Interim Director at Shir Tikvah. She’ll still be coordinating Education and Programming, with a layer of financial oversight and office operations over the top. Contact her if you’d like information about membership, education, communications or how you can plan our next party. Katie’s educational background is in history, creative writing and diplomacy, all of which come into play in various capacities every day.


Amelia Schroth, Office Manager

Amelia Schroth is an indispensable member of the Shir Tikvah team. As Office Manager, she’ll answer your phone calls, emails and questions about everything from membership to finances and all of the small details in between. She’s the woman you contact to schedule a movie, a bar mitzvah or anything else in the building. Our plants always look fantastic because Amelia is also a landscape contractor – in the summer and on the weekends, look for her outside.
