As an Admiralty Lawyer, he had a successful practice in Puerto Rico for 35 years. He is the author of three books on American Jewry, as well as four novels and a book on Baltimore’s Pratt Street Riot during the Civil War. He has lectured at universities, colleges, high schools, and Jewish institutions throughout the United States and the Caribbean. His research into Sephardic Jewry has led him to become a member of the Board of Directors of the Society for the Study of Crypto Judaism.
