Sam Rabinowitz z”l

In Their Own Words


Maccabi USA Leadership
Board of Directors
13th Maccabiah

Sam was an attorney, active volunteer and supporter of a myriad of Jewish causes.  He was a leader who left his mark on everyone, encouraging others to live up to their potential.  Sam was the former Chairman of the Trusts and Estates Department at Blank Rome.

Sam became involved with the leadership of Maccabi USA in the early 1980s and among other leadership roles, served as the General Counsel for the organization.  He brought his forthright thinking and ideas to the Board meetings and contributed greatly to the growth of Maccabi USA during his involvement.  One of the benefits that Sam received because of this involvement was deep, lasting friendships with other members of the Maccabi USA Family.  He was also involved in leadership roles in many other organizations, contributing to their growth and success.

Sam was first and foremost a family man and he was passionately in love with them.  He was married to Bobbie for 51 years and they enjoyed three sons and seven grandchildren for whom he always found time.  His son Mark is now involved with Maccabi USA and has recently taken on the role of General Counsel.
