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.

Footsteps of Angels: Yom Kippur

October 6, 2016, by

There are interesting lessons to be learned from an unusual aspect of the Yom Kippur prayers. On Yom Kippur we say Baruch Shem Kevod out loud in Shema because we are like the angels. At the end of Yom Kippur we say it silently again? Aren’t we more like angels at Maariv right after Yom Kippur?

Rosh Hashanah: Rock Stars

September 28, 2016, by

Choose your path… The Mishna says on Rosh Hashanah we are judged “Kivney Maron”. 3 explanations are offered. Each represents the 3 different ways in which we are judged. It can also represent the 3 possible ways we can approach Rosh Hashanah.

I Can’t Wait Until Tomorrow

Make the most out of the month before the high holidays. You can accomplish a lot in a month. All God asks of us is to be better today than we were yesterday, to focus on present, not to worry about the future.
