10th Reunion
June 7-9, 2012

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes! I married Asaf Jalfin on Sept. 2 at the Seaport Boston Hotel. It was a lovely affair, with many Brandeisians in attendance. Sarah Friedman and Michaela May-Klughaupt were bridesmaids, and my cousin Dan Forman ’10 said a blessing. Other alumni in attendance included my parents, Steve ’71 and Sherry Forman Litwack ’73, along with Lily Davidson; Emily Berry; Michael Forman ’76, P’10; Fred Siegel ’71, P’08; Michael Swartz ’71, P’08; Dave Tabachnik ’71; Steve Yaeger ’74; Josh Shapiro ’71; and Stephen, PhD’72, and Lee Whitfield ’90, MA’90, PhD’97. On another note, our 10th Reunion is next summer — time flies! Hope to see you all there.

Attorney Sabrina Victor joined Danbury, Conn.-based Ventura, Ribeiro & Smith, where she focuses on personal injury litigation. She had been with Costello, Cooney & Fearon in Syracuse, N.Y., where she handled personal injury, product liability, insurance defense and real estate cases. Earlier, she was assistant corporation counsel for the City of New York, specializing in real estate tax litigation. She earned her law degree from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where she graduated with honors and served as coordinator of the Cardozo Advocates for Battered Women. San Francisco filmmaker Rebecca Ora is working on a documentary that will explore the connection between her decision to run the second annual Jerusalem Marathon and her complicated and changing relationship with Israel. In the 26.2-mile race in March, Rebecca finished 21st in her division (women 20-39) with a time of 4 hours, 11 minutes, 52 seconds. She also recorded most of the journey on a waterproof HD sports video camera. Anne Conger, MA’07, married Noa Simons ’01 on Oct. 10, 2010, in New Paltz, N.Y., where they live. Alumnae in attendance included Evie Ullman, Autumn Wiley ’01, Sarah Reynolds ’01, Michelle Greenfield ’01 and Yulia Gayduk Healey ’01. Rabbi Miriam Philips began a job as director of lifelong learning at Temple Emanuel in Andover, Mass., and was scheduled to marry Daniel Vogel in November in Long Beach, Calif. She was among a group of eight people, including Suzy Stone ’02 and Keren Gorban ’07, who were ordained in May at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles (the School of Rabbinical Studies director is Dvora Weisberg ’81). Jeremy Boudrot married Lindsay Wyman on July 21. After a four-year African adventure in Angola, where Naâma Laufer met her husband, Luis, and they had their daughter, Leah, they are all back in New York for a different kind of wild trip: The couple is importing and distributing Portuguese wine in the United States through their company, NLC Wines. David Friedman, a practicing attorney for five years, recently co-authored the seventh edition of Westlaw’s “Intellectual Property and Unfair Competition in a Nutshell” with Professor Charles McManis of the Washington University in St. Louis School of Law. This legal treatise, a concise summary of an area of law, is one of the leading series of reference materials used in the field.
