Stu and Nancy Siefer & Susan and Mark Sendrow
With the 2017 Heritage Award

Please join the Arizona Jewish Historical Society in honoring Susan & Mark Sendrow and Nancy & Stu Siefer. Together, these two couples have enriched our Valley with over four decades of volunteerism, civic engagement, and philanthropy.

 Susan and Mark Sendrow are retired attorneys from Maryland and New Jersey respectively.  They moved to Phoenix in 1978.   Susan is a past president of Congregation Beth Israel and former chair of the CBI Camp Daisy and Harry Stein committee.    She serves as a volunteer for the Jewish Family and Children’s Services Senior Enrichment Program and the Arizona Jewish Historical Society.   Together with Mark, she is also a member of the Penn & Wharton Club of Arizona.    Mark has served on the board of Congregation Beth Israel, is a past president of the CBI Brotherhood, and volunteers as a docent for the Phoenix Art Museum.   He is a past president of the Arizona Jewish Historical Society and played a major role in the development of our dynamic arts, culture, and education programming.  Susan and Mark are currently members of Congregation Beth Israel in Scottsdale.

 Nancy and Stu Siefer are originally from Detroit and moved to Tempe in 1970.  Nancy is a retired English professor who has served as a volunteer for the Jewish Organization of Tempe (a pre-cursor to the East Valley JCC), Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, Brandeis National Committee, Sun Sounds of Arizona, and the Arizona Jewish Historical Society. Stu is a retired architect whose firm has designed many award-winning projects in the Valley since 1973. He has volunteered for the Jewish Organization of Tempe as well as The Nash/Jazz in Arizona, and is a past president for the Tempe Chamber of Commerce, the Rio Salado Chapter of American Institute of Architects. He is also a past president of the Arizona Jewish Historical Society and was instrumental in the restoration of the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center in 2008-9, serving as chair of our Building Committee and volunteer Project Manager.  The Siefers are currently members of Temple Emanuel of Tempe.  

 Proceeds from this gala event go towards the ongoing restoration of the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center. Originally built in 1921, this historical Phoenix landmark served as Phoenix, Arizona's first synagogue and later became a Chinese-speaking and then a Spanish-speaking Baptist Church. Purchased by the Arizona Jewish Historical Society in 2002, the center now serves as a museum and event venue open to people of all faiths. Exhibitions and programs educate the public about Jewish heritage as well as the diverse history of Arizona. The center is a Phoenix Point of Pride and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
