Joseph is a graduate of Yeshiva University and Fordham University Law School.

He is married to Leelah, has five children and enjoys biking, traveling and spending time with his kids.

Ray is the Israel’s National Food Bank, since 2007. He has always been a strong advocate for the State of Israel and has worked with Bridges for Peace and Christians for Israel. Ray is happily married to Rosalind and they work together for Leket Israel. They presently live in Hamilton, Ontario.
