Stephen Hochberg, a Manhattan native, moved to Santa Fe in 2007 after retiring from a career in the Law. He received his Juris Doctorate from Yale Law School, where he was editor and officer of the Yale Law Journal. His extensive legal experience included clerking for a Federal Appeals Court Judge, serving as General Counsel for a large residential and commercial real estate concern in New York, teaching at New York Law School and Touro College School of Law, and working in private practice. His area of expertise was Real Estate and Property Law.
Following his move to Santa Fe, Stephen has been very active with local community and nonprofit organizations. In addition to serving on the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico Board of Directors and the Board of the Museum of New Mexico Foundation, he has previously served on the Finance Committee for Temple Beth Shalom, as a Commissioner for the Planning Commission of the City of Santa Fe, and the Boards of the Santa Fe Desert Chorale and CHRISTUS St. Vincent’s Hospital Foundation.
In addition to underwriting the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico’s “Write to Heal” Support Group, Stephen and his wife Jane have been the sole underwriters for the Hochberg Academy at Temple Beth Shalom, the Early Childhood Programs at both the New Mexico History Museum and Santa Fe Botanical Gardens, and the Summer Creative Writing Program of the New Mexico School of the Arts.
