    “Temple Beth HaTephila holds such a significant place in our family history that we both wanted to help continue the tradition of giving and provide an example to our children. We both felt and continue to feel that it is important for this community to have a beautiful and state-of-the-art center for Jewish worship and education.”   Darren and Marissa Green

    Hailing from St Petersburg and Maitland, Florida, Darren and Marissa Green met at a Bar Mitzvah of one of Darren’s cousins in Sarasota, FL in 2000. They were married in 2004 and had their first child Molly in 2007. Moving to Asheville in late 2007. They started a woodworking business called The Old Wood Co., now celebrating its 10th anniversary and joyfully added Judd and Quinn to their family in 2010 and 2013.
