Amy Mallor, Executive Director

After a months-long nationwide search for the right person to guide Or Shalom toward a stronger future financially and administratively, the Board of Directors is excited to introduce Amy Mallor, our new Executive Director!

Most recently, Amy has been in the role of Executive Director for synagogues in Baltimore, MD, and Glencoe, IL. But Amy is very familiar with the San Francisco and Bay Area Jewish landscape, having previously served as Executive Director with San Francisco’s Congregation Sherith Israel and with Congregation Peninsula Temple Sholom in Burlingame.

When not working, Amy enjoys walking her cockapoo, Mango, being in nature and at the beach, playing golf and pickleball, and reading non-fiction books. She is also learning how to play bridge, so if any Or Shalom folks are bridge players, you may have found a fourth.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire Or Shalom community, welcome back to San Francisco and to Or Shalom, Amy! We look forward to working, praying, and socializing with you in the months and years to come.


Naomi Rodriguez-Finer, Communications Specialist

Naomi Rodriguez-Finer will be working closely with our Executive Director, Amy Mallor to develop a clear and concise voice in all of our communications, making it easier for everyone to engage with our website, register for programs, share OS news on social media, and learn about events going on inside and outside of our community.

Prior to Or Shalom, Naomi worked on the communications team for Congregation Emanu-El, as a coordinator for several post-production film houses and a personal assistant for two touring comedians. She graduated from Brandeis University in 2016 with a BA in Business (specialization: marketing) and Women's Studies. She currently lives in the Presidio and enjoys painting with watercolors, roller skating, and playing pickleball with her family.
