Christine Mahler
Executive Director
Chris Headshot 10.1.21.png

Before joining the Freehold Jewish Center in 2019, Christine had spent the last 8 years with Beth El Synagogue in East Windsor, NJ as their Office Administrator.  


Christine is married to Christopher (yes, they are both Chris) and have two children, Elizabeth (Lizzie) and their son Tyler, of blessed memory.  Christine grew up in Philadelphia (Go Flyers!) and moved to New Jersey in her teenage years.  Before she was a mother, Christine worked for various companies doing everything from basic office work to assisting the corporate controllers.  Prior to joining Beth El, Christine spent twelve years being a domestic engineer (stay home mom).  Being a full-time mom was harder than working for any corporation.  The Mahler family has lived in East Windsor for over 20 years.  Christopher has worked for Potter Architects in Union, NJ for over 31 years.  Lizzie is currently a freshman in the Honor's Program at New Jersey City University. 

Outside of Beth El, Christine has worked with various organizations over the years, including the Friday Club, Meals on Wheels, Hightstown Women’s League, and she has sat on the board of Better Beginnings Child Development Center.  Christine’s major focus now is the Tyler Hettel Scholarship Fund at Mercer County Technical Schools Diesel Program.  The Scholarship Fund is both a yearly scholarship and a financial program to help subsidize the Diesel Program at the Assunpink Center with updated equipment.  

Christine is honored to be a part of a community that is welcoming and caring.
