Executive Director

Holly Sukol

Holly Sukol joined CST as the Executive Director in July 2024. However, she has been involved here for over seven years as a member and in various programmatic and educational roles. Her favorite perk of being a CST member is getting to spend Shabbat mornings with our community’s children.

Sukol brings her professional experience from various industries, including Jewish communal work, animal welfare, and death care, most recently working at Lake View Cemetery. Her lay leader resume is highlighted by starting CST YP, Shaarey Tikvah’s young professional community, and Ruach, Hillel at Kent State’s LGBTQ+ student group. She holds two bachelor’s degrees, one in Urban Affairs and another in Liberal Studies – Painting, and a master’s degree in Nonprofit Administration and Leadership.

A native of New Mexico, her favorite food is refried beans, and she will happily recommend all the cool stops for your next trip to the Land of Enchantment. As a now-longtime Clevelander, Sukol can also recommend all kinds of fun things right here in NEO!

She and her husband, Eli, live in Solon with their two dogs, Aldrin and Voyageur, and cat, Boogie. When she’s not at CST, she can be found in her kayak, playing board games, or around the table sharing a meal with family and friends.

Maintenance Manager

Frank George

Frank, a native of McGraws, West Virginia, started with Shaarey Tikvah in August 1998. Frank keeps the lights on and our very busy building operating smoothly. Frank assists with setup and cleanup for synagogue events, ongoing maintenance and repair of our property, and provides a charming dash of dry humor to the job! Frank may be best known for his t-shirts – his favorites are: “Official Kosher Taster” and “Don’t Worry” on the front with “Frank’ll do it” on the back. In the summer months, you can find Frank outside on the riding mower and in the winter months, you can find him shoveling our walkways. He is an integral part of our synagogue community and is quick to go the extra mile to help our congregants.
