Harry Rothenberg

Harry Rothenberg

As his accent suggests, Harry Rothenberg is originally from Philadelphia and still spends too much time rooting for its sports teams. A 1988 graduate of Columbia College and a 1993 graduate of Harvard Law School, magna cum laude, Harry now lives in northern New Jersey with his wife and children. As an attorney, Harry is a tireless advocate on behalf of victims of catastrophic injury. His firm, the Rothenberg Law Firm LLP, is one of the leading personal injury law firms in the United States, with offices in New York City, Philadelphia, Hackensack, Cherry Hill, and Lakewood. For more about Harry, his firm, his family, and their extraordinary successes on behalf of victims of injury, see www.injurylawyer.com or http://www.superlawyers.com/new-york-metro/lawyer/Harry-Rothenberg/0385d903-0ad4-45d1-9461-05e62738d92a.html. Harry is 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. He has delivered his dynamic lectures across the world to college and graduate students and at synagogues and conventions. His newest project, Harry's Blog, highlights a passage or a section from the weekly Torah portion or upcoming holiday in order to extract lessons in an easily-accessible and entertaining, yet also thought-provoking fashion.

Avada Kedavra

June 17, 2013, by

Long before Voldemort and Saruman uttered their first fictional curses, the Jewish people faced off against the real-life sorcerer, Balaam. Balaam’s plan to curse the Jews failed when G-d turned his curses into blessings. But do coerced blessings ever take effect?
