Lori has been a member of Washington Hebrew Congregation for more than three decades and is also serving as the president of the Women of Washington Hebrew.

Lori enjoyed a rewarding career as a Health Care Technology executive and consultant. She is now retired and happily devoting most of her time to philanthropic endeavors and pro bono consulting. In the wider community, Lori is a member of the Smithsonian Women’s Committee, and she serves on the North American Board of Women of Reform Judaism. Lori is also a past co-chair of the Tikkun Olam Women’s Foundation and a Friend of JCADA.

Lori is married to Barry Wise (a fifth-generation WHC member); together, they raised three young men who celebrated their b’nei mitzvah and Confirmations at WHC. Those young men have since brought three spectacular daughters-in-law into the family. While Lori’s volunteer work and hobbies are important to her, nothing sparks more joy than her grandchildren!
