Barry and his wife, Lyn, joined Washington Hebrew Congregation in 1989 and became adult b’nei mitzvah three years later. They co-chaired “Let Freedom Sing,” WHC’s celebration of Cantor Manevich’s 25th anniversary and have hosted the Congregation’s annual Florida Reunion and Concert.

Barry is president of ChasenBoscolo, a plaintiffs’ litigation law firm that he founded in 1986, and has served as chair of the Maryland State Bar Association Section on Negligence, Insurance, and Workers’ Compensation. A former officer in the United States Army, Barry served a combat tour in the Republic of South Vietnam for which he was twice awarded the Bronze Star. Upon his return, he completed his education, graduating magna cum laude from University of Maryland University College, where he was named Alumnus of the Year in 1992, and earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Baltimore School of Law. He has served in leadership roles in the greater Washington Jewish community, on the University of Baltimore Foundation Board, and as the founding president of the UMUC Alumni Association.

Barry enjoys playing tennis and spending time with Lyn, his wife of more than 40 years, and their family: sons Brandon, Benjamin, and Blake (who all became bar mitzvah at WHC); daughter-in-law Catherine; and three grandsons.
