Krasnovsky To Lead JCCRP

The Jewish Community Council of the Rockaway Peninsula (JCCRP) announced that it has named a Executive Director, Nathan Krasnovsky.

Born and raised in Far Rockaway, Krasnovsky resides there with his wife and three children. He graduated from Queens College with Honors, earning a Bachelor’s degree with a major in Political Science. Subsequently, he graduated from Shor Yoshuv with a Master’s degree in Talmudic Law and received rabbinic ordination. Currently, Krasnovsky attends Fordham Law School in the evenings.

He comes to the JCCRP from The Met Council on Jewish Poverty where he worked for the past three years, first as a Legal Liaison in the Family Violence Department and then as the Director of its Midwood, Brooklyn Single Stop program.

Krasnovsky was responsible for transforming The Single Stop into one of Met Council’s most successful programs, providing low-income residents of the Flatbush community with a wide array of social services, including assistance with public benefits, legal services, immigration help and emergency financial assistance. This success led to six featured articles in the New York Times from 2011-2012.

According to the JCCRP, in addition to these achievements, Krasnovsky utilizes a very serious and conscientious approach to his work combined with a humane, empathic attitude to his clients.

The JCCRP continues to offer the following services to community residents:
