Professor Snow spoke about the changes he’s seen in Orthodox Jewish life; when he was a child growing up in America it was harder to be Orthodox and many faced challenges if they wanted to pursue careers and as a whole Orthodox Jewry wasn’t as committed to Torah learning. Today you see a greater devotion to Torah study and stringency in observance, but we search for that balance between pursuing careers and commitment to learning Torah. It’s been his distinct honor to take part of an institution that helps bridge that gap between serious Torah learning and successful careers.
Rabbi Soloveichik (whose shiur Professor Snow attended), Rabbi Sacks, staff, faculty, roshei yeshiva and many students were in attendance to wish him well. He will be missed.
