92nd Street Y director fired over affair with assistant

(JTA) — The longtime executive director of New York’s 92nd Street Y, Sol Adler, was fired after revelations that he had a long-term affair with his assistant.

Adler, according to the New York Daily News, had an extramarital affair with Catherine Marto, the Manhattan Jewish community center’s liaison for¬†board and donor relations.

Marto also was fired after the Y deemed that she provided unsatisfactory answers to an investigation of her son-in-law, Sal Taddeo, a former Y employee who allegedly received kickbacks from Y vendors while working there.

Adler had served as executive director of the Y since 1988 and had started working there in 1978. Deputy Executive Director Henry Timms will take over for Adler while the Y searches for a replacement.
