Leonard E. Minsky 1927-2022

Judaic Studies is saddened to learn of the passing of Leonard E. Minsky on February 21st. Leonard E. Minsky
UMaine alumnus, supporter, community member, and donor, Leonard served on the board of the UMaine Alumni Association, and with his wife, Renee, was honored as a life member of the University of Maine Foundation. He was the recipient of the Alumni Association Black Bear Award and Pine Tree Emblem award, and with Renee, shared the Vincent Hartgen Award and the Stillwater Award. In 2016, Leonard was honored with an Honorary Doctor of Letters degree.
