Jelena Santiago, Executive Assistant

Jelena Santiago joined the Temple Solel office staff in 2008. Along with providing administrative support to Rabbi Linder, Rabbi Stiel, and Cantorial Soloist Todd Herzog, she also creates the weekly Shabbat bulletin, monthly Pathfinder newsletter, annual Year At A Glance program booklet, as well as other print projects throughout the year. Jelena maintains the rabbinic calendar including scheduling bar and bat mitzvah appointments for families in preparation for their child’s life cycle event. Jelena, husband Miguel, and children Nik and Milena, relocated to the Valley of the Sun in 2004 from Chicago and do not miss the cold weather one bit (but Garrett’s popcorn is another matter entirely).
