Attorney Benjamin (Benji) Rubin, Brian’s youngest son, Mitchell’s “little/big” brother, graduated from the University of Illinois Law School, Magna Cum Laude, and received his undergraduate degree from Northwestern University. Benji is a member of the Academy of Special Needs Planners, an associate member of the Special Needs Alliance, serves as the President of SIBS (Supporting Illinois Brothers and Sisters, the Illinois chapter of the national Sibling Leadership Network – affiliated with the Arc of U.S.), and serves on the Leadership Committee, and as Co-Chair of the Public Funding Advocacy Committee, of the Supported Community Living Initiative, a joint venture of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, the Jewish Child and Family Services, and Keshet, regarding residential and day programming for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Having Mitchell as a brother profoundly shaped who Benji is today, and thus the type of law he chose to practice. His personal experiences as a sibling offer a unique perspective into the responsibilities that come with caring for a sibling with special needs. Now, as an adult, those sometimes present and future responsibilities he will share with his older sister regarding his brother’s care, are a concern that he shares with all brothers and sisters of individuals with special needs.
