We would like to take the time to congratulate Brandeis members Jennifer Coatsworth, Steve Silver, and Lisa Margulies for being recognized by media outlet Billy Penn for being three of the 18 young leaders making a difference in Philly's legal community. The article may be found here (http://billypenn.com/2015/06/18/whos-next-in-the-law-18-young-leaders-making-a-difference-in-phillys-legal-community). Jen, Lisa and Steve appear as numbers 3, 13, and 16, respectively. Please take a few moments to read about these impressive young lawyers and feel free to personally congratulate them on this honor as well. It is very satisfying to have Brandeis members overrepresented on this exclusive list.
Passing of Marlene-Sandy Oretsky, mother of RECORDING Secretary Melissa J. Oretsky
We regret to inform you of the death of Brandeis' Corresponding Secretary and Executive Board Member Melissa J. Oretsky Muskin's mother, Marlene-Sandy Oretsky , z'l. The Oretsky family had a private funeral. Here are some additional words and tribute video from Melissa about her mother:
She was an amazing wife, mother and grandmother. She always put her family before herself, and her granddaughter (my daughter) was more important to her than the air she breathed. If anyone is interested in lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the American Heart Association in memory of Marlene-Sandy Oretsky.
Attached is a tribute we made for her service.
