Our President

Ken Usen I grew up in South Florida and became a Bar Mitzvah at a Conservative Synagogue in Miami Beach.  After my Bar Mitzvah, I did what many of us did back then, I took a break from Judaism. I reconnected in 1982 at the urging of my wife and in1983 joined a reform synagogue. I had the good fortune to find Temple Beth Am in 2007. Shortly after joining Temple Beth Am, I took on the position of Chairperson of Long Range Planning.  Subsequently I was a member of the Executive Board as second and then first Vice President.


I live in Croton on Hudson with my wife Diane who is a Teacher at our Religious School. We have two grown sons, Dan who lives with his wife Rachel in Providence, RI and Steven who lives in Beacon, NY.

I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from the City University of New York and was a Department Manager for Mainframe Systems at UPS before retiring in 2010.  I enjoy skiing, attempting to play golf, cooking and traveling.
