Edy Reyes

Edy Reyes has been an important member of the community as one of our security guards since 2017. He is one of the first friendly faces you see when you enter our building. Before working at Temple Beth Am, he worked at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for 9 years as security and other various roles. He found it to be an interesting job and met all sorts of celebrities and even got to walk the red carpet.

Edy was a part of the Young Marines Youth Leadership and Service Program, which is a national youth program for boys and girls, ages eight through high school, focused on leadership, citizenship through community service, self-discipline, and living a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.

It was through this program that he learned all about discipline.

Edy is one of 6 siblings. There are 3 boys and 3 girls. One of them is his twin sister. Everyone lives in LA.

Edy loves life and loves to see people happy. Being able to protect people makes him feel good inside. He loves the opportunity to meet people, and welcomes all Beth Am members to approach him and say hello.

Edy is my favorite among the terrific corps of security guards at TBA. It's wonderful to greet and be greeted by him each morning as I arrive for morning minyan and as I leave to start my day. We're bless to have such good hearted security staff.
