Rabbi Jerome Gurland retired last year after 31 years of dedication to the University where he taught and tended to spiritual life on campus. In recognition to all that Rabbi Gurland did for the campus community, Chris Quatrone ’95 and Glen Quatrone donated 16 posters from the "Keeping The Memory Alive" 2012 International Poster Competition which was sponsored by the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance, and Research.


The posters recognize the importance of Holocaust remembrance and reflect each designer’s personal attempt to focus on the memory of the Holocaust. The posters, along with a plaque commemorating Rabbi Gurland’s work on campus, are hung in the Center for the Sciences and Pharmacy on the third floor.
