The Claire Friedlander Family Foundation is a lead sponsor of the upcoming Jewish University For A Day at Stony Brook University, Sunday, March 27, 2022. Now entering its 11th year, Jewish University is a day-long series of courses and mini-presentations that brings together academics, authors, rabbis, diplomats, journalists and other experts around Jewish themes. The event attracts several hundred members of the public and is sponsored by the Stony Brook campus Hillel with proceeds supporting Jewish student life on campus. This year, the foundation will be the named sponsor, in particular, for a session on worldwide efforts to reclaim looted Nazi art presented by Jewish Museum Associate Curator Sam Sackeroff.
Foundation President Peter J. Klein said “supporting the conversation around Jewish life is important to the foundation as Claire Friedlander was a Holocaust survivor and dedicated her life to tolerance education.” “Stony Brook University’s Jewish University For A Day is an excellent forum to further explore the past, the present and opportunities for the future,” said Klein.
