He is a proud graduate of Magen David Yeshivah Elementary School where he had the honor of learning from the late Hacham Baruch BenHaim who instilled in him a love of Torah & Misvot.

After graduating NYU Stern School of Business he joined Jay Franco and Sons and now serves as the company’s Vice President.

Joseph learned from his parents and grandparents the importance of family, Torah values and community involvement. He married Raquel and together, they raised four amazingly talented kids who they learn from every day and consider them all future leaders in their own right. Raquel & Joseph value family, education and a love of Torah and Misvot.

Joseph has a passion for music. Whether it’s Arabic tunes that he learned from his grandparents, country, rock and roll or his favorite band- The Beatles- all music inspires him. He also enjoys reading and writing, considering himself a lifelong student each and every day.
