Luke Rubenfeld is the youngest of the Rubenfeld family. Unlike his brother Paul, who was a popular actor, Luke has chosen a career away from the limelight and is rather a successful Canine professional.

In this article, here is everything to know about Luke Rubenfeld.


  • Luke and his sister Abby, unlike their older brother Paul, were born and raised in Oneonta.
  • His brother Paul had petitioned for an injunction against Luke.
  • Luke was the director of a company named ‘The Very Thing’ before becoming a Canine Professional.
  • Luke’s father, Milton Rubenfeld, was a pilot who fought in both the Royal Air Force and the United States Army during WWII before becoming one of the five founding pilots of the Israeli Air Force during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.

Did Not Have a Good Relationship With His Brother Paul

As we said, Luke did not have a very good relationship with his late actor-brother Paul Rubenfeld. Something that did come up for the siblings was the Lawsuit Paul had against his own brother. The Lawsuit was filed on December 26, 2012.

While they never revealed the exact reason, Paul had reportedly even filed a Petition for Injunction against Luke. The goal of an Injunction petition was to keep someone away from their house, automobile, workplace, and any other locations deemed essential by the court.

The rounds of court finally ended on January 3, 2013, on the grounds of confidential filing of address.

Is A Canine Professional

For those who were unaware, Luke is a Canine professional. Apart from being a Canine professional, he was once the director of a Company called ‘The Very Thing’. While the company is now inactive, it was reportedly owned by a woman named Katherine Goldman. The Very Thing is the only company that is known as a workplace of Rubenfeld.

’s Father was Milton Rubenfeld, the Israeli War Hero

Milton Rubenfeld, Luke’s father, was a pilot who served in the Royal Air Force and the United States Army during WWII before becoming one of the five founding pilots of the Israeli Air Force in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.

Rubenfeld, the other four volunteer pilots, and the other mechanics are widely thought to have influenced the direction of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.

The War hero returned to America injured and later got married to his Judy Rubenfeld. Milton died in his home in Sarasota on February 21, 2004, at the age of 84.

Luke’s Sister is Abby Rubenfeld the Civil Rights Attorney

Abby Rubenfeld is a civil rights lawyer based in Nashville, Tennessee. Abby graduated with honors from Princeton University, where she served as class president, and with a J.D. from Boston University School of Law in 1979. She was also a founding member of the Boston University Law Association.

Abby filed a lawsuit against Tennessee’s “Homosexual Practices Acts” Law, which criminalized sodomy. In 1996, the sodomy legislation was repealed. She gathered a coalition of attorneys and plaintiffs in 2013 to challenge Tennessee’s participation in the United States Supreme Court case that legalized homosexual marriage nationally.
