Julie Silverman


Julie Silverman has been a lifelong member here at Beth El. She is married to Bard Borkon and together they have raised two wonderful young men, Josh and Jack. Julie received a BA in History from the University of Michigan and a JD from the University of Southern California before making her way back to Minnesota. After practicing law for 18 years, she retired to focus more on her family and volunteering. She has volunteered with Beth El, Aish, her sons’ sports leagues, and now sits on the Boards of Beth El Synagogue and Beth El Memorial Park. Now that her sons are grown, she has gone back to work at Pumpz & Co in the Galleria and part-time legal work. She also enjoys pilates, walking her dog with friends, golf, and wintering in Arizona.
