Rabbi Dr. Leslie Schotz serves the egalitarian Conservative synagogue called the Bay Shore Jewish Center. She was born on the block of the same shul; where her mother was educated as a girl growing up on a dairy farm nearby. Rabbi Schotz' parents were married on the very same bimah where Rabbi Schotz leads services, officiates at life cycle events and delivers sermons. Rabbi Schotz became a mourner for the first time when her father Hilbert Israel Schotz, of blessed memory, died. He is buried in the synagogue cemetery which has roots going back to the late 1800s. Rabbi Schotz is proud to serve a shul with the slogan "You don't have to pay to pray." They are a House of God welcome to all.
