Roberta Cohen has retired from her psychoanalysis practice, which was preceded by years of work with disadvantaged kids. She still takes piano lessons and enjoys reading. She writes that, although much time has passed, she still remembers her Brandeis years vividly, particularly her friends and her studies. “I would love to hear from anyone in my old Brandeis circles,” she says. Judy ’58 and Sherry Gorbach spend winters in Los Angeles, their annual retreat to escape the cruel Boston winters. Their daughter, Pamina, and her family, including 8-year-old twins, live nearby in Pacific Palisades. The Gorbachs plan to spend the summer months in the Berkshires and have already purchased their Tanglewood tickets. Sherry has retired from Tufts Medical School, although he retains emeritus status and attends some clinical rounds. He maintains a small business, consulting with pharmaceutical companies about antibiotic development. Taking classes at BOLLI (the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Brandeis) and the UCLA Extension School keeps his mind active. He writes, “Still singing in a community chorus (in Wellesley), for as long as I can continue to hit a high A.” John Howard visited New Orleans for the first time; participated in a Road Scholar intergenerational program; and received two small Humanities New York grants, one for a program on James Baldwin, the other for a program on aging.
