James and his wife Alyson Yashar have been TI members since 2004, when they moved to Bergen County from New York City. They were drawn to TI because of its warm, welcoming members, rich egalitarian tradition, beautiful music, and learned clergy. When he is not acting presidential, James is practicing law and spending time with Alyson and their three children — all of whom were graduated from TI’s Hebrew school and became b’nai mitzvah at Temple Israel. James previously served as the Temple Vice President, Youth Chair, and Endowments Chair.
