Isabel Montoto

Isabel, or “Izzy” as she’s known by the Temple Israel family, arrived in 1962 in Miami via Operation Pedro Pan, alone and a bit scared. Even though she moved to New York for a while, she found her way back to Miami, where she’s been settled in with her cherished immediate family–her husband, three daughters, two grandchildren, and her mother. Isabel became part of the Temple Israel family in 2003, and she proudly states “Temple Israel is not just a job; it’s my second family.” Isabel is so much more than our Office Manager: she has the answer to just about any question you have!

Things to ask Isabel about: Logistics, where to order the best lunch, and her grandchildren.
