On Tuesday, November 1, the Alfred and Evelyn H. Solomon Rare Book Room was formally dedicated at Yeshiva University’s Mendel Gottesman Library of Hebrew/Judaica by their children, Julia and Todd Solomon.
Todd Solomon explained the connection between the rare book room and his parents. “Jews are called, by some, people of the book. My father, a graduate of Yeshiva College, personified this. He was the man of the book and my mother shares in what was my father’s fervor in the preservation of knowledge.”
