Larry Ginsburg, Queens College

Larry was born and raised in Albany, NY among lots of snow, incredible mountain ranges, and a community built upon meaningful Jewish practice; here his love for experiential Jewish engagement was developed. Over the years he has been fortunate to work with thousands of individuals- from camps to youth groups and college campuses- uplifting and unraveling the many faces of Jewish identity. After receiving a B.A. in Anthropology from the University at Albany, Larry went on to NYU’s Dual MPA/MA program, where he earned an MPA in Nonprofit Management, as well as an MA in Hebrew and Judaic Studies. Additionally, Larry has held various academic and educational fellowships throughout the years, with such institutions as the iCenter for Israel Education, and The JCC Association’s Departments of Jewish Life & Learning and Camps. Larry sits on the Board of Directors for The University at Albany Hillel, and serves as an educational consultant with the BBYO youth movement. When not at Hillel, Larry loves to go camping, watch Yankees games, and cook. He is always down for a great conversation about what it means to be Jewish!
