The Shloshim Memorial was attended by close family, friends, Yeshiva students and community members, who came to pay tribute to their Rebbe and teacher. The program included remarks from Rabbi Avraham Friedman, Rosh HaYeshiva; Rabbi Dr. Jerold Isenberg, Chancellor Emeritus; Rabbi Dr. Mordechai Goodman, Past Dean of HTC; Mrs. Rosie Nathan, Daughter; Rabbi Leon Lipshitz, Nephew; and Rabbi Michael A. Myers, Past Dean of HTC. In addition, Rabbi Norbert Rosenthal contributed to the program by sharing his feelings and the feelings of his classmates who studied weekly with Dr. Lipshitz for 49 years.

Dr. Lipshitz for webDr. Lipshitz was a native of Lodje, Poland and learned Torah in the Alexander Yeshiva in Lodje and from his father, HaRav Meir Dan Lipshitz, zt"l. Dr. Lipshitz was accepted into the famous Yeshiva Chachmei Lublin, where he was never able to attend due to World War II. After surviving the atrocities of the Holocaust, Dr. Lipshitz immigrated to Chicago and married his wife Hela and had two daughters, Rosie and Annie. While in Chicago, Dr. Lipshitz earned a Doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Chicago and a Doctorate in Hebrew Letters from the Jewish University of America of HTC, all while devoting vast amounts of time to Torah study. He authored numerous sefarim and taught hundreds of students throughout his life. Dr. Lipshitz served as a bridge from the Torah and values that were taught in pre-war Europe to today's way of life.

Dr. Lipshitz's life was a constant reminder that we must always strive to grow and accomplish as much as we can. He taught through example that one must always persevere and always stay true to his convictions.

At the end of the program, HTC launched the Rabbi Dr. Abraham Lipshitz Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor and perpetuate the legacy of Dr. Lipshitz, zt"l. Contributions can be made to this fund online by at www.htc.edu/donate.
