Harman Grossman

Harman Grossman is Assistant General Counsel of Johnson & Johnson, where he manages complex commercial and intellectual property litigation and teaches business leaders how to avoid legal and ethical problems. But his real passion is Jewish learning. He attended the East Midwood Day School, Yeshiva of Flatbush, Princeton University, the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Harvard Law School, and – saving the best for last – Camp Ramah in the Berkshires (where he peaked in his athletic career at age 15 as catcher on the softball all-star team). He currently serves on the Board of Trustees at Mechon Hadar and is studying at the Jewish Theological Seminary to earn his Master’s in Jewish Education. He taught Melton in Bergen County, New Jersey, for six years, as well as a variety of other classes. He is also an avid Stephen Sondheim fan and an enthusiastic (but not very fast) bicyclist. He lives in Teaneck with his wife Adina, and they have two grown children.
