Randi Luxenberg was raised in Hillcrest, N.Y., the daughter of Evelyn and Bernard Beeber z”l. Family, chesed and communal leadership were staples of Randi’s life from an early age. She attended Yeshiva of Central Queens (YCQ), Central Manhattan Yeshiva University High School for Girls, and for her last year of high school completed a joint program with Stern college and Machon Gold in Israel. She graduated Cum Laude from Queens College with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics. She later attended Baruch College, taking Masters of Business Administration courses in Finance and Accounting. During college, Randi worked as a research assistant for several professors with research projects relating to computers. She began her career in computers in September 1981. Her first job was with Boeing Computer Services, then American Management Systems, Chase Manhattan Bank, and finally, a high-level position at First Boston Corporation as Assistant Vice President in Information Technology.

Randi married Arthur Luxenberg (who graduated from Cardozo Law School and now serves as a partner of Weitz and Luxenberg), in 1984 and lived in Forest Hills for five years before moving to Great Neck. Once in Great Neck, the Luxenbergs both developed a strong relationship with Rabbi Yaacov and Abby Lerner and became active members of the Young Israel of Great Neck where they were major donors behind the expansion of the shul. They later became active members and supporters of the Hampton Synagogue in the summers. Arthur and Randi are the primary supporters of the Colel Chabad Soup Kitchen, the Welcome Center opposite the Kotel in Jerusalem and Pantry Packers, and are avid supporters of Colel Chabad Tomchei Shabbos. Randi has worked on various projects for the North Shore Hebrew Academy (NSHA) PTA, hosted Welcome Night for new parents in her home for the NSHA PTA and is a hard-working alumni representative for YCQ.

In 2013, Randi began her involvement with Shaare Zedek when she was asked to chair Women’s Health Day. This coming March will be Randi’s sixth year chairing the event which she almost single-handedly helped transform into one of the most dynamic, thought-provoking, sophisticated and well-attended events of the year. Health Day boasts top-notch speakers, exceptional boutique vendors and a sell-out crowd of women from across the tristate area. In 2015, Randi also became an official member of the Women’s Division Board, a position to which she has brought much flare, creativity and passion.

Randi and Arthur are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters, Elizabeth, now married to Steven Lipner, and Jacqueline, now married to Jonathan Spiegel. Following in their parents’ footsteps, Elizabeth and Jacqueline recently planned, organized and hosted a Sisters Seize Hunger event selling baked goods to support the Daniella Moffson Foundation. It is our great honor to recognize the amazing achievements of our talented friend Randi Luxenberg.
