David Bernstein was honored with a symposium and a dinner following his retirement from Sarah Lawrence College, where he had taught European history, religion and art history since 1969. One of the symposium papers was on the Book of Job, a text he studied with Nahum Glatzer, P’62, G’87, in a memorable course at Brandeis. David and his wife, Toni (Hodes) ’60, celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary in July 2014. Ruth Crispin reports that her translation of Benito Pérez Galdós’ 1888 novel, “Meow (Miau),” was published. “More important, my daughter Melissa was married in March to Jules Benson, a vet from England who became a U.S. citizen in order to vote for Obama,” she writes. Alan Rubin published his 15th book in the “For Dummies” series, “Diabetes Meal Planning and Nutrition for Dummies.” His books have been translated into 19 languages. One, “Diabetes for Dummies,” has sold more than 1 million copies. He and his wife, Enid, recently celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary.
