STURM--Rabbi Chaplain

Ephraim H. Gentle, gracious, prescient. These were some of the qualities of Ephraim Sturm, as executive Vice President of the National Council of Young Israel, brought a turning point in the 1950's for Jewish university students when Rabbi Sturm championed the idea that students could practice their religion without hindrance and be able to obtain kosher food at universities whose respective dining facilities omitted kosher options. We, today, at Cornell University are early beneficiaries of Rabbi Sturm's initiative and will always be appreciative of his assistance and guidance. Richard J. Bornstein,'62, Chair Endowment Board of Trustees of the Center For Jewish Living at Cornell University
