Annual Campaign

2024 Campaign Leadership

Lee Sheller, Annual Campaign Chair
Lee Sheller recently retired as a lawyer after practicing law for 43 years. As a past Chair of the Board of the Congregation, he has also served on the Annual Campaign cabinet for the past ten years. Mr. Sheller shares that, “I initially joined the Annual Campaign cabinet because, from my perspective as a Congregation leader, it was clear how important a successful Annual Campaign is to the Congregation and the School. The Annual Campaign provides funds that are critical to the ability of the Congregation and School to create the excellent shul and school community that we all appreciate.” 

Mr. Sheller and his wife, Tina, have two children who benefitted from a Beth Tfiloh education from Kindergarten through Grade 12. They proudly feel that “Our children are caring, responsible, mature, and resilient people who love Judaism and Israel, to a large part, because of the values that they learned going to the School from K-12.” They now have a granddaughter who is in the BT PreSchool and feel strongly that they, “want to make sure that the congregation and school can continue to provide great services to our community. Our community is a warm and giving community that understands the importance of the Annual Campaign and I am happy to play the role of chair of this year’s Annual Campaign.” 
Brian '98 and Shoshi '03 Ponczak, Annual Campaign Vice Chairs
Brian '98 and Shoshi '03 Ponczak are committed lifelong members of the Beth Tfiloh family.  As alumni, parents of four children in the school and congregants, they feel supported by this incredibly dynamic, vibrant and nurturing community.  Beth Tfiloh shaped them into who they are today, both professionally, as an engineer and a lawyer, and as committed Jews and supporters of Israel. 
Beth Tfiloh is their past and present community and they are humbled and honored to chair the 2024 Beth Tfiloh Annual campaign to sustain  Beth Tfiloh for the future.
