Gratz College mourns the passing of Murray H. Shusterman, Esq., a dear friend of Gratz College and a member of our Board of Governors. Mr. Shusterman was a remarkable man, who served in numerous roles in Philadelphia city leadership and as an attorney who practiced law even when he turned 104! He served on the Board of Governors of Gratz for almost twenty years with dedication, lending us his wisdom and counsel. In 1999, he and his wife Judith generously endowed the Shusterman Distinguished Lecture Series at Gratz, a program that has brought outstanding intellectually stimulating programs to the community each year. "Mr. Shusterman was a remarkable role model for the community in so many ways," said Joy Goldstein, president of Gratz. "He was a great leader, a scholar, a visionary and generous philanthropist, and a man who clearly loved his family."
