Rabbi Bernstein was served as president for the RCA from 1972 to 1974 and again from 1984 to 1986.
Rabbi Bernstein also held educational and synagogue positions within Orthodox institutions for more than 40 years. He was rabbi of the Young Israel of Windsor Park, Queens, and a professor of Jewish studies at Yeshiva University.
He also reached out to the non-Orthodox, although, he maintained, without diluting or compromising the Orthodox principle that Jewish law is not subject to change by the norms of modern society.
Rabbi Bernstein was also active in Zionist causes and supported Orthodoxy in Israel. He was president of the Religious Zionists of America, a member of the executive committee of the World Zionist Organization and a member of the Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency.
The Rabbi was married to the former Pearl Moshel; four children, Sara Peretz of Jerusalem, David, of Manhattan, Sima Kern of Teaneck, N.J., and Avi, of Bayside, and five grandchildren.
