Elizabeth Townsend

Education Assistant & Helfman Registrar


Elizabeth is a native Houstonian who has been walking the halls of Congregation Emanu El since she was a toddler. Many of her earliest memories are spending time with her family at synagogue and learning in religious school. After spending a few years in the beautiful city of Durango, CO, she returned to Houston and our congregation. She has served many rolls here at Emanu El from being both a Becker and Helfman teacher, wearing many administrative hats, to most recently holding the title of Membership & Engagement Coordinator. She is so excited for the next step in becoming our Education Assistant & Helfman Registrar. She and her husband Luke enjoy family adventures with their daughter Esther and Labrador Lilly.
