Pancho Chang visited the Mexico City shelter Casa de los Amigos in February as part of his duties as a Fulbright specialist. Rabbi Jeff Foust is in his 21st year as the Jewish chaplain at Bentley University. In January, he gave the invocation at the inauguration of Waltham mayor Jeannette McCarthy and also led a workshop on embodying the Kabbalistic tree of life for OHALAH, the Association of Rabbis and Cantors for Jewish Renewal. Michael Gerver, P’99, celebrated the birth of a granddaughter in May 2019. Daughter Mollie is the proud mom, and Michael’s mother, Joan, is the baby’s namesake. Ed Griff works full time in the University of Cincinnati’s Department of Biological Sciences. He is developing new courses for nonscience majors on the biology of addiction. Daniel Prober, P’05, has been a member of the Yale applied-physics faculty for 45 years. This year, he received lifetime achievement awards from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the Yale Science and Engineering Association. He and wife Sharon celebrate their 50th anniversary in June. The couple enjoys spending time with their three sons and their elder sons’ families. Judith (Gollinger) Savage, P’99, retired in 2014 from a 33-year career as a library media specialist in parochial and public schools. That was the year her husband, Norman ’68, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease; later, the diagnosis was changed to Lewy body dementia. Norm died in August 2019. Although he had lost touch with his many Brandeis friends, the couple shared wonderful memories of their college years. Judith is now finding joy through her family and friends, and in learning to live alone for the first time (she and Norm were married shortly before her senior year at Brandeis). She notes that becoming active in the Brandeis National Committee has been a lifesaver for her.
