For the last 10 years, Ruby curated film series at Rochester’s JCC and Temple B'rith Kodesh exploring the Jewish experience through global and varied lenses. She was fluent in Yiddish; accomplished in life drawing, sculpture, and knitting; and an avid pianist. She studied interior design, psychology, and social work at Rochester Institute of Technology, where she received her undergraduate degree. Ruby received her LCSW from Syracuse University and practiced social work in Rochester, where she was at the forefront of the relocation and resettlement of the city’s Soviet Jewish community.
Opened as an alternative for our community, it is our mission to provide the Jewish population of Rochester with an affordable, modern and convenient choice at a time when the need is most important. We pledge to utilize our local ownership to offer a dignified array of services to Jewish families, and give back to the community we live in and serve.
