25th Reunion
June 6-8, 2014

Get psyched: The dates for our 25th Reunion are June 6-8. Jim Eber has joined me as Reunion co-chair, and a great committee has been formed to plan the weekend. Please try to attend; the more folks we have, the weepier we promise to get. I will keep the Reunion information flowing. Contact me if you have any questions. On a personal note, I appeared as Sara in Diana Son’s “Stop Kiss.” My kid made the high-school soccer team again, and I can’t believe she’s a sophomore. Remember to visit me when you’re in D.C.

Jim Eber took his family to Maine for a week last summer and says he ate as many lobster rolls and fried clams as humanly possible. Nomi Krim Edwards had dinner at Gail Oxfeld Kanef’s house over the summer. Nomi’s son, Devon, is a freshman at Bowling Green State University in Ohio and plays the sousaphone in the marching band. Michelle Fiddler joined Prudential New Jersey Properties as a realtor focusing on Union, Somerset and Morris counties. She also enjoys working with families who are making the leap from New York City out to the ’burbs. Micki Barnett Jacobs owns 4 Bucks Media, a 15-year-old television media buying agency. She is in absolute denial that one of her daughters has started high school and the other is now in middle school. Rachel Freedman Lucas, who returned to the workforce after taking several years off to raise her kids, is a successful freelance publicist working with lifestyle clients in the health care, fashion and arts industries in Boston. Her clients have been featured in The Boston Globe, NBC-TV and other national media. Philip Solomon is still adjusting to a home with three daughters and a wife. He recently joined three boards of directors: Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center of North Miami, Mineral Fusion “Minerals on a Mission” and the Palladio Beauty Group (as chair). He is looking forward to seeing everyone at the 25th Reunion. Amy Kessler, MA’90, a senior vice president at Prudential Retirement, was a panelist at the Municipal Finance Conference, which brought together more than 250 academics and practitioners to discuss issues in municipal markets. The event was co-sponsored by Brandeis International Business School’s Rosenberg Institute of Global Finance and The Bond Buyer, a trade publication. Mike Freeman accepted a new position as the director of financial planning and analysis at law firm Bingham McCutchen. He also raised more than $4,000 for a bike ride for multiple sclerosis, thanks in part to many generous donations from his Brandeis friends.
