Rosenblut, President and CEO of Parker Jewish Institute; Larry Fishelson, Co-Founder of Dynalink Communications; and Alan Phillips, CEO of Phillips Holdings. “The outstanding leadership, community service and humanitarian achievements of our three honorees, is truly worthy of recognition,” Rabbi Potasnik said.
Michael N. Rosenblut is President and CEO of Parker Jewish Institute, one of the nation’s leading health care and rehabilitation centers for adults; Founder and Chairman of AgeWell New York, a Managed Long Term Care Plan and Medicare Advantage Plan; President and CEO of Queens-Long Island Renal Institute; President and CEO of Lakeville Ambulette Transportation, a seven-county-wide medical transportation service.

NYBR has close relations with leaders of New York’s various faith traditions. When prejudice harms any member of a community, all are harmed. Such common concerns require collaborative efforts in seeking solutions to challenges confronting society, including prejudice, mental health, affordable housing, adequate health insurance, poverty and homelessness. NYBR’s work in this area allows different faith traditions to be there for each other in times of crisis, as well as times of celebration.
