Maksim Grinberg

William Shakespeare wrote “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet.” This famous line is one of the most known in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet due to its profound meaning, which is that a name is arbitrary compared to a person’s qualities. New York’s Maksim Grinberg made the news; however, his qualities did not. If we are to judge a man, like Maksim Grinberg, we must know more than his name – we must know who he is as a person.

Behind the name Maksim Grinberg you will find a man who is a caring father, a loving brother, a grieving son, a faithful Jewish congregant, an active philanthropist, a dedicated humanitarian, a grateful USSR immigrant, and so much more. These are all aspects of Maksim Grinberg that are vital in truly understanding who he is as a person, who he is as a man, and who he is beyond just his name.
