Leonard Grunstein Joins Bernard Revel Graduate School Board

New York—Leonard Grunstein, Esq. of Teaneck, NJ, is the newest member of the Board of Overseers of Yeshiva University’s Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies. He and his wife, Chana Tambor Grunstein, are generous benefactors of Yeshiva University. Their three children, Eli, Michal, and Rachel, as well as their daughter-in-law and sons-in-law, are all graduates of YU schools.

Grunstein has recently published an extensive, deeply learned analysis of the contemporary application of Jewish laws regarding the taking of interest. The study, which appeared in The Banking Law Journal, a highly respected professional publication, reflects Grunstein’s mastery of the intricacies of a complex area of halakhah, of the similar challenges raised by the strictures of Islamic law, and of the workings of Western economies.

“In the short time that I have known Mr. Grunstein, I have been impressed by his intellectual acuity, his generosity, his good cheer, and his commitment to the enhancement of Jewish education and scholarship at the highest level,” said Dr. David Berger, Ruth & I. Lewis Gordon Professor of Jewish History and dean of Revel. “He is a valued supporter of Revel and personifies the intellectual ideals that Revel strives to impart.”
