Ellen & Scott Teller

Ellen and Scott Teller grew up in Houston, Texas and were active in the Houston Jewish Community.  Upon moving to New Jersey in 2001, it was important they became a part of a strong Jewish Community. They settled in Bridgewater due to the presence of a Conservative Synagogue and a JCC. They became active in the community almost immediately.

Ellen soon became involved in the Public Schools, including to help lead a five-year Strategic Plan for the Bridgewater-Raritan School District. Ellen has been a very active member of Temple Sholom, serving in many leadership capacities, culminating her service as President in 2013-2015. Currently, she serves as the Immediate Past President of the Jewish Federation of West-Central New Jersey. She is currently retired, but previous to retirement she practiced Holocaust Restitution Law for 14 years at The Marks Law Firm, PC, in Basking Ridge, N.J., and practiced General Civil Litigation and Social Security Disability Law for many years before leaving Texas with Scott and moving up the east coast.

Scott is an Executive Underwriting Officer for Chubb Personal Risk Services, and is an industry leader in the high net worth market.  He is a strong supporter of the local Jewish Community, lending his time and expertise to several organizations, including Temple Sholom, where he has served on many committees, and on the Executive Board from 2015-2017 as Financial Secretary.

Ellen and Scott have been strong supporters of the State of Israel and have travelled there twice together; the last trip was on a Jewish Federation Mission.  They are also strong supporters of the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Registry and The Melanoma Research Alliance.

Ellen and Scott have three children,  Alana, Hannah and Andrew.
