Bernie Appleman works as a special public defender for foster children in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He has a 7-year-old grandson in Portland, Oregon, and a 2-year-old granddaughter in New York City. In March, Winston Bernard Coard published the first volume of his memoirs, “The Grenada Revolution: What Really Happened?” Mike Leiderman and his wife, Hermine ’67, welcomed their first grandchild, Rocket Lee Cohen. In December, they spent a fascinating week in Cuba, where they ran into two other Brandeisians: Elaine Sklaroff ’67 and Vicki Goldberg Nelson ’68, who were on the same tour with their spouses. Phyllis and Michael Moscovich, P’99, report they enjoy “just vegging out” in Palm Springs, California, during the winter. They had a mini-reunion in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with Norman Goldberg and David Fleischaker. Lee Weiner Sharkey published her latest poetry collection, “Walking Backwards.” Allen Zerkin had a wonderful reunion with Frank Bloch, MA’77, PhD’78, after a 50-year hiatus. Frank and his wife, Melissa Roth ’67, are happily ensconced in a lovely Manhattan apartment, and Allen and his wife are enjoying going to the theater and concerts with them. Allen continues to teach at NYU’s Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, where he has been an adjunct professor since 1988. Allen and his wife feel blessed to be in good health; to be living in brownstone Brooklyn and a getaway carriage house in Woodstock, New York; and, by carefully managing Allen’s teaching calendar, to be able to travel frequently.
