Joseph Robinson

Director, Community Engagement

Rabbi Joseph Robinson joined the Riverdale community after many adventures throughout the United States and Israel. He has extensive experience working with a variety of different Jewish communities in California, Minnesota, Alabama, and now New York City. In addition to his duties at the Riverdale Y, Joseph is also the co-founder and facilitator of the Riverdale Jewish Community Partnership.

Joseph’s family is blessed to be involved in so many aspects of the Y. His twins, Ruthie and Liam, love to participate in Kid’s Space programming while his youngest, Benny, is a freshly graduated member of the Y’s ECC. Joining forces with his wife (Emily Hausman – Dir. of Early Childhood), Joseph is delighted to partner with the diverse Riverdale institutions to design mindful, engaging, and meaningful programming community-wide.
