Jaqui Wadsworth, Administrator
Jaqui Wadsworth, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, joins the Congregation Beth Shalom team after serving as Director of Congregational Engagement at Temple Beth-El in Great Neck, New York. 
Jaqui earned her Bachelor of Arts in English and Judaic Studies from the University of Arizona and upon graduation made aliyah. During her four years in Jerusalem, she explored the land, history and culture while immersing herself into day-to-day Israeli life. It was during that time Jaqui learned to speak Hebrew and worked at various jobs; feel free to ask her more about her time in Israel! 
Returning to the states in the Fall of 2014, Jaqui quickly began her career in the Jewish non-profit world, first serving as a Regional Director for BBYO and then as Membership Accounts Coordinator at Congregation Beth El in Berkeley, California. 
In 2018 Jaqui and her husband, Nick, moved to New York from California. It was here that Jaqui served as Director of Congregational Engagement and was part of UJA Federation of New York's professional development cohort for young Jewish professionals, YESH. She completed courses on challenging conversations, self-advocacy, budgeting and fundraising.  
In October 2020 Jaqui and Nick got married on Florida's own Anna Maria Island, and the following year, in October 2021, they welcomed their son, Parker, into the world. 
In her free time, Jaqui loves being a mom and wife! As a family they are excited to be in Florida, be closer to family, spend time on the beach, and explore the beautiful Tampa Bay area. Jaqui is looking forward to getting to know every CBS member and learn all about what makes Congregation Beth Shalom the incredible community that it is.

Jackie Klein, Director of JLearning
I am so excited to join the team at both Congregation Beth Shalom and Temple B'nai Israel as the Director of Jlearning. My time as a Jewish Professional Educator has always been through the lenses of how I can bring Jewish Text and tradition to life through relationship and community building. I have a passion for Jewish pluralism in all forms and helping others find their own individual connections to Judaisim. I am so excited to get to know each and everyone of you through learning, singing, laughing and eating over the coming months. Personally- I have moved from the Palm Beach area in South Florida on the East Coast with my partner Nic. As a couple we love to go for nature walks (perhaps while catching pokemon), eat good food, listen to great music and watch way too much Star Trek!  We are looking forward to getting to know the best sunset spots.
