Lenny Gusel Co-founder of RJeneration (known as 79ers)
Lenny Gusel was born in Moscow and emigrated with his family to Washington Heights in 1981 at the age of nine. After successfully acculturating and almost fully assimilating into American life and culture, at the age of 30 Lenny realized a deep-seated personal need to understand, develop and integrate his Jewish and Russian identities into his life. In 2001, while living in San Francisco, Lenny co-founded RJeneration (previously known as 79ers) and in 2006 brought it to his hometown NYC. Lenny is a passionate advocate for the development of the RSJ community and the individuals that comprise it. He serves on the board of Mishpucha and is a proud member of AIPAC. Lenny is a member of Wexner Heritage Program. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and three children.
