Class Correspondent

65th Reunion
June 9-11, 2017

Class members are in their mid-80s but still hanging in there. I am active in the Topeka ACLU, which I founded in my living room in the 1960s and have now revived. I staffed the Kansas Democratic Party caucus in my district and hope to attend the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

Penny Perez Abrams writes, “I can’t travel anymore — too difficult and painful. I mostly live in my Miracle Chair, which puts me on my feet from a sitting position, or in my power wheelchair. But life goes on, and there’s lots to enjoy in a sitting position.” Tamar Soloff Brower writes that she and her husband of 62 years, Martin, live a calm and happy life in Newport Beach, California. “Our four children and their spouses live near us and do the traveling these days. We are busy in Orange County charitable activities, and Martin writes his monthly column for a local magazine, so we get invited to many real estate openings and parties. We attend as many Brandeis events as possible in Los Angeles and always enjoy meeting fellow alums.” Judy Marks Kass attends classes focused on current events and Jewish thought. She would like to hear from classmates and see anyone visiting Boston. Max Perlitsh and his wife, Hilda, attended the inaugural Brandeis Leaders Night on Nov. 19, 2015, at the Seaport World Trade Center. Max is active with the Holocaust studies program at Merrimack College’s Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations. Eddie Stavis, G’10, writes that he is “still standing and still bookish.” Caroline Shaffer Westerhof sends best wishes.
