Rosefsky’s life to be celebrated December 11


     The family of Dr. Israel J. Rosefsky will hold a "Celebration of Life" event in his memory from 1 - 2:30 p.m. Sunday, December 11, in Binghamton University's Watters Theater. A reception will follow in the Grand Corridor of the Fine Arts building.

      Dr. Rosefsky died Friday, October 21, of heart failure at the age of 95. Rosefsky gave back to the community during and after his 58-year career as a local pediatrician, and at Binghamton University established the Elsie B. Rosefsky Visiting Artist Series following his wife's death in 1987. The student art gallery is also named in her honor and, in 1988, Rosefsky endowed the Language and Culture Scholarship Fund to help students participate in study abroad programs.

      All students, faculty, staff and area residents are invited to the event, which will feature speakers, music and art work from the Rosefsky Studio Art Gallery.
