We are excited to announce that David Shapero has started in his new role as Cemetery General Manager.
David will have responsibility for the overall business and operational leadership of the Beth Tzedec Memorial Park. In this position he oversees all aspects including staff and volunteers, finances, and the maintenance and development of the facilities.
David comes to Beth Tzedec with diverse professional experience in Canada and Israel, where he lived for ten years. He holds a BA in Economics and an MBA in Strategy and worked in various capacities in E-commerce, Broadcast Television, Testing and Certification, and Hospitality.
As an empathetic, analytical thinker, David looks forward to the challenges and opportunities at Beth Tzedec Memorial Park.
A native Torontonian, David lives in Toronto with his Israeli wife and two young boys, who take up most of his time outside work. He has a strong passion for Israel, travel, great food, sports, music, and just about anything outdoors.
David looks forward to joining the tremendous team at Beth Tzedec, an institution he has known well since early childhood. Our long-time cemetery administrator – Tom Laufer – will be helping David with his on-boarding before his retirement later this summer.
