About the Harry Spindel Memorial Lectureship
Established in 1977 by the gift of Rosalyne Spindel Bernstein, Honorary 1997, and Summer Thurman Bernstein in memory of her father, Harry Spindel, as a lasting testimony to his lifelong devotion to Jewish Learning, this fund is used to support annual lectures in Judaic studies or contemporary Jewish affairs. The fund has celebrated Jewish culture and identity through lectures, music, photography, and film.
