Rabbi Judah (Yehudah) Leib Ginsburg (1888-1945) was born in Dvinsk (Daugavpils), Latvia, and came to the United States to settle in New York in 1931. Ginsburg was married to Etta Ginsburg, and the couple had two children, Moisha and Yudis. He contracted tuberculosis in New York and traveled to Denver for treatment at the Jewish Consumptive's Relief Society, where he was admitted on February 3, 1932. Ginsburg's wife and children soon followed to Denver, where the family ultimately settled. After Ginsburg was discharged from the JCRS on June 30, 1932, he took a position with Denver's Congregation Zera Israel. Ginsberg wrote a number of commentaries on Jewish texts and traditions, and published at least four works.
