When COVID-19 first reached New York, the effects were eerie and devastating. From the confinement of their homes, people could hear sirens every so often, signaling another death or hospitalization.
In this interview with co-founder and chairman of Signature Bank, Scott Shay, we talked about the devastating effects of the pandemic in New York City, the business community, and the world.
Scott A. Shay is a Co-Founder and Chairman of Signature Bank and he is also the Chairman of the Investment Committee of the Elah Fund, an Israel private equity fund. He is a passionate community activist as well. Scott started an adult educational program, chaired several major Jewish educational programs and, with his wife Susan, started a Hebrew School. He is the author of In Good Faith: Questioning Religion and Atheism and Getting our Groove Back: How to Energize American Jewry. He has also written articles on Judaism, belief and the economy for many leading publications. Scott has been thinking about religion, reason, and modernity since wondering why his parents sent him to Hebrew school.
