Download PDF for this date

Establishment of an annual Sol Satinsky Memorial Lecture at Dropsie College for Hebrew and Cognate Learning was announced today by Dr. Abraham I. Katch, president of Dropsie. The memorial lecture has been established by the Satinsky family and will be delivered each November. In addition to the lecture, Dr. Katch announced establishment of the Sol Satinsky Award by the college’s board of governors. It will be given each year at commencement exercises to an outstanding graduate.

The lecture series and awards commemorate a personality active on the national scene as well as in his native Philadelphia. His national activities included leadership in the United Jewish Appeal, Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds, Joint Distribution Committee, American Jewish Committee, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency and the Jewish Theological Seminary. In Philadelphia, he had served as president of the Allied Jewish Appeal, vice-president of the Federation of Jewish Agencies, president of the Jewish Publication Society, and vice-president of the Albert Einstein Medical Center. He died last November.
