He graduated with honors from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business as a Joseph Wharton Scholar and also holds Chartered Financial Analyst and Certified Financial Planner accreditations. He feels connected to HFLS because, “Interest free lending expresses ethical imperatives I inherited from the Chofetz Chaim (my great-great-grandfather) and also makes effective use of my professional skill set within banking and finance.” Edward resides in NY with his wife and 4 children and is a member of the Jewish Center of the Upper West Side and the Jewish Center of Atlantic Beach.
