About the Author

Harry Rothenberg

Harry Rothenberg, as his accent suggests, is originally from Philadelphia and still spends too much time rooting for its sports teams. An attorney, he is best known for his representation of victims of catastrophic injury at the Rothenberg Law Firm, where he works with his parents and 5 of his siblings. But he's equally passionate about lecturing on Jewish topics, particularly to audiences that did not have the same opportunity that he had to study for 3 years in Israel at Ohr Somayach yeshiva. A 1988 graduate of Columbia College and a 1993 graduate of Harvard Law School, magna cum laude, Harry lives in northern New Jersey with his wife Amy. Their 8 children range in age from their 21 year old eldest son to their 3 year old twin boys, who as their frequent guests can attest, are now in charge at their house.
