NJY Camps Director Resigns Over Past Sexual Harassment Claims

According to The New York Jewish Week, Leonard Robinson resigned under pressure April 12 from his post as executive director of NJY Camps after allegations of sexual harassment surfaced in recent days.

“In a memo Friday afternoon to the board of NJY Camps, president Peter Horowitz said Robinson, who worked at four JCCs around the country before assuming his post here in 1993, resigned “after being confronted with allegations of sexual harassment and impropriety in a role prior to his employment with NJY Camps.”

The memo said no allegations were made against Robinson during his time at NJY Camps. “However,” the statement noted, “these previous allegations are deeply disturbing and antithetical to the community we have created. Out of an abundance of caution, we are launching an immediate investigation into his tenure here.””
