Howard Segal is a certified public accountant and runs his own public accounting firm. Howard and his firm provide accounting and tax services for businesses in diversified industries and provide tax and consulting services to individual tax clients.
Howard has been active in the leadership of the Merrick Jewish Centre for the past fifteen years. He is currently the synagogue’s Treasurer, and serves on numerous committees, including Finance, Ritual, Long Range Planning and the Endowment Committee. Howard also is the co-chairperson of the Merrick Jewish Centre’s annual Golf Outing, which has now hosted outings for the past eleven years. The event not only has become a significant fundraiser for the synagogue, but also provides a day of camaraderie for all those who attend.

The team provides an opportunity for members to get to know each other and form relationships in a venue outside of the synagogue – on the softball diamond.

Throughout the years Howard has been actively involved in the community while coaching his daughters’ sports teams in the Merrick-North Merrick Little League and the North Merrick-North Bellmore Basketball League.
Howard has been happily married to his wife Ilene for 27 years and treasures his relationship with her and his three daughters, Heather, Allison and Lauren.
When not preparing tax returns or working on the Merrick Jewish Centre’s finances, Howard enjoys playing golf and softball and rooting for his long-time favorite team, the New York Mets.
