Michael N. Rosenblut, president and CEO of Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation, received the 2018 Humanitarian Award at the New York Board of Rabbis Annual Humanitarian Awards reception on Monday, June 11 at The Hotel Edison in New York City.
Since 1882, the NYBR has worked to bring together and honor diverse Jewish and other religious leaders from the metropolitan New York City area and beyond, building solidarity, promoting interfaith dialogue, and supporting rabbis in all their pastoral duties.
According to Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, NYBR executive vice president, this year’s three honorees were: Michael N. 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.
In addition to serving as president and CEO of Parker Jewish Institute, Rosenblut is 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.
