Harry Merkin - President

 In addition to serving as President of Temple Shir Tikva, Harry is a career marketing professional, having worked for several technology companies and currently for HealthEdge in the healthcare space. He and his wife Debbie, daughter Rachel and son Adam joined TST in 1994. They have all experienced many family milestones at TST over the years, including the B’nai Mitzvah of both children, Debbie’s adult B’nai Mitzvah under the tutelage of Rabbi Blumberg, having Cantor Hollis marry Rachel and her husband Will Welt a few years ago, and the passing of Debbie’s parents and Harry’s Mom. The Merkins reside in Wellesley.

Harry is excited about the responsibility of helping to lead our sacred community and be part of building Temple Shir Tikva as a center of Jewish living in MetroWest. He takes on the presidency in this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic, when the community has stayed connected in new ways that will help inform future plans. Harry is confident that the partnership with the clergy, professional and administrative staff and lay leadership will allow TST to grow and achieve it aspirations as a true Kehillah.
