Len Grossman, now a resident of River Forest following nearly 20 years in Oak Park, is currently enrolled as a student at the Osher Life-long Learning Institute at Northwestern where he participates in and coordinates classes in everything from writing to politics and theater. In addition to the board of OPFT, he is currently president of the Oak Park-River Forest Community of Congregations and active in West Suburban Temple Har Zion, which his family joined 60 years ago. In addition to these activities he maintains various websites and blogs and tries to keep up with political issues. With his wife, Cindy Barnard, he frequently attends theater and opera performances throughout the Chicago area, always looking forward to the next Festival Theatre production. His most important activity is babysitting for his grandson Gavin. Fortunately, he retired in 2009 after more than 30 years as a lawyer for the U.S. Department of Labor. Before that he taught school in Lawndale for ten years and drove a taxi.
