55th Reunion
June 9-11, 2017

Sheila May Cline,
one of the first women ordained as a cantor and the first hazzanit (female cantor) invited to sing in Israel and Europe, was honored on her 40th anniversary in the cantorate at the annual American Conference of Cantors convention in Philadelphia. A profile in The Jewish Advocate described her journey and her passion for blending music with message. Susan Deutsch recently retired from a long career in real estate and municipal investment banking. She is beginning a third term as president of the board of the Farnsworth Art Museum, in Rockland, Maine. Susan and her husband, Carlisle, who have just renovated their home in Owls Head, plan to become full-time Maine residents. They have six grandchildren, three in college, and are disappointed that none chose Brandeis. Noel Kaplowitz has taught international relations, Middle East affairs and political psychology at three University of California campuses — Los Angeles, Berkeley and Davis. He enjoys folk dancing, theater, classical music and swimming. Maeva Marcus, a research professor at George Washington University Law School, was appointed general editor of the “Oliver Wendell Holmes Devise History of the Supreme Court of the United States.” She’s just the third person to serve as editor in the publication’s 60-year history. Maeva is the founding director of the New-York Historical Society’s Institute for Constitutional History. Ester Reiter recently wrote “A Future Without Hate or Need: The Promise of the Jewish Left in Canada,” a history of Canada’s secular Jewish left.
