Jaime Gazes joined the TBE Family in 2016, when her children started at ECC.  She has been on the Board of the ECC PTO and has served as the Fundraising Chair. Jaime has one son in Merkaz Limud and her younger son is an ECC student. Jaime owns a sales, marketing and fundraising company and is thrilled to volunteer her time in a similar fashion for the 2020 TBE Gala.  She joined the Gala Committee for the first time for last year’s event, and helped to produce the most profitable auction in TBE’s history.Temple Beth Emet is very special to Jaime, her husband Keith, and their children Myles and Tyler – as it reinforces the Jewish traditions and culture that are so important to their family.

Jessica Hampshire has been a part of the TBE community since 2017. She quickly became very fond of TBE and all it had to offer. Jessica has two daughters. Her oldest is in Kindergarten at BEES and her youngest in Pre-K at ECC. Jessica enjoys being involved with the schools and temple and helping in many facets. Jessica is very grateful to be a part of the TBE family and looks forward to what’s to come.

Eden Katz has been involved with TBE since 2008 when she joined the ECC Pto. She served as the ECC PTO president for many of her 11 years at the ecc. All 3 of her children are ECC grads, campers in our camp Beth Emet and religious school students. Eden joined the camp administration team 3 years ago and loves working with our campers, families and staff every summer! During the year Eden is a teacher with the Broward county school system. Temple Beth Emet holds a very special place in the hearts of Eden, Evan and their kids. It is more than a house of worship, it is their home away from home, their community and their extended family.​
