Murray Goldwag, affectionately known as “Murray the Sockman”, is a natural people person and salesman who started selling homemade stained glass creations at crafts fairs and flea markets in 1972.
Murray gradually shifted his focus to socks, clothing and accessories and in 1987 opened the store “Kosher Socks” together with Meryl, his business and life partner. Located in South Fallsburg, NY, the store is still a hub of activity every summer.
In 1991, Murray and Meryl pioneered the “camp sale” model, in which they partner with various schools in the greater NY area and sell camp products on-location, with a percentage of sales going to the school.
In 2017, Murray’s children, Melissa and Gaby launched Murray the SockmanTM, an online store that makes Murray's goods available to a broader audience and caters to the growing demand for his products.
