He has served as a member of the IRS Commissioner's Advisory Group (1973-74) and the President's Nominating Commission for Appointments to the U.S. Tax Court (1976-1980).

Jenny:
Larry, like his father Abe and mother Polly, connected with us in a most meaningful way.
Abe and Polly introduced my dad to my mother in
1926 for the first time.
Larry introduced us to Aharon Yoran when I made Aliyah to Israel in 1986.
The time we spent with Larry was never enough.
