Harry Fischel Pioneer of Jewish Philanthropy


Only in rare occasions does a person who has made significant achievements and received recognition in his or her own lifetime continue to be remembered years later thanks to sensitive souls who take on the responsibility of reminding their contemporaries of new generations of noble leaders who were recognized in their own lifetimes, and again when an even newer generation arises. Harry Fischel was such a man. He made enormous contributions to a struggling academic achievement, Yeshiva College (later developed as the undergraduate college for young men, the memorable unit of Yeshiva University). in 1928 there was published a volume called Forty Years of Struggle for a Principle celebrating his eminent achievements for the founding of the kernel of what is today Yeshiva University. Fischel was then 63 years old and widely acclaimed for his contributions, and fully deserved achievements. Now his successors have risen to the occasion to broaden the canvas and updated the remarkable story of a determined philanthropist who braved the cynical attitudes of those who did not appreciate the sincerity and genuine commitment of a businessman to the academic and religious betterment of his society
