 Carole Stein
Carole Stein has been a Mishkon member for 27 years, having served as vice president on the board in the early ‘00s and on various committees throughout the years, most recently as Membership Chair.
Her vision for Mishkon is to achieve a multi-generational and integrated organization, with financial stability and growth in:
  • Education – A healthy and profitable preschool, a thriving religious school. Vibrant adult education programs, community offerings, and creative holiday programming.
  • Building and Grounds – to run a well-maintained and optimized facility, to improve its stability, and to enhance the experience people have when inside it.
  • Membership – With Rabbi Katzan as our spiritual leader, to position Mishkon to become a meaningful presence for Westside Jews and the Venice community, recapturing the connection with former members, deepening the loyalty of current members and sparking interest and excitement from new members.

Carole earned her BA at the American University in Paris and her MBA at UCLA’s Anderson School. She has enjoyed a long career in customer retention and consumer marketing, from the Los Angeles Times to DirecTV and, since 2017, has been the publisher of local community magazines. She is married to Rabbi Dr. David E.S. Stein, and they live in Santa Monica.

 She can be reached at or (310) 985-5990 and welcomes all calls.
