Stanley D. Ginsburg

Stanley D. Ginsburg died peacefully at home on October 28th. He is survived by his wife of 74 years Arlene. They met when he was 18 years old, she was just 16, when he took her to prom, 2 years later they were married.

They built a successful life together with 3 children, Robert (Mitra), Carole (Richard) and Marc (Tracy) and their 8 grandchildren, Dana, Max, Greg (Julie), Doug (Julianne), Drew, Alexa (Adam), Sam (Jason), and Shelby,and 3 great grandchildren, Harlow, Story and Benji

Stanley was a true family man. He loved spending summers in Atlantic City surrounded by his loved ones and looked forward to his annual boating adventures.

Stanley had a variety of businesses over the years from Arrow Display, Diversity Marketing Group, Sparks, Magic Marker and Equivest Real Estate.  In the 1960s Stanley became a member of the Young Presidents Organization where he traveled the world. 

It was through those businesses Stanley spread the following message: “We need people to know Israel and talk for Israel.”  Stanley embodied that statement in so many ways.

For more than six decades his generosity and passion for the Jewish community in Israel and Greater Philadelphia has been widespread. In the early 1980s he started the Ginsburg-Ingerman Overseas Students Program to enable American youth to attend Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Stanley made it his mission of his life to support the IDF with scholarships yearly and his ongoing commitment to Magen David Adam for the purchase of ambulances in Israel. A legacy that will live on.

He also leaves behind a legacy of weekly Shabbat dinners at Drexel University, a commitment to Main Line Reform Temple and Jefferson Hospital. For decades Stanley rode motorcades across the world with his club, Executive Riders. He also had a profound love of horses, including his horse Amigo, who he rode until he was 88 years old.

Stanley was a friend to all, still attending his Central High School reunions up until this past year.

His passion for his wife, Arlene extended into his love of boats, naming one of his beloved watercraft ‘The Lady A.’ Boating was not just a love but a passion of his. 

They say you can measure a man by the lives he touched. Stanley Ginsburg touched the lives of his family but of those he never met through all his charity work, He was one of a kind, there was truly nothing he didn’t or couldn’t do. Stanley will be missed.

Stanley firmly believed in education and dedicated himself to providing scholarships to IDF soldiers who lacked the financial resources to attend college after serving. He sponsored 44 young adults who regularly updated him on their studies, reserve duties, and personal lives. Stanley helped build the state of Israel with intention and through direct action.
