Message from Director of Yaschik / Arnold Jewish Studies Program
August 16, 2016
It is with a heavy heart that I report to you that Norman J. Arnold passed away early this morning. Norman was an anchor of the Jewish Studies Program, and the Program bears his name in virtue of his long-standing and generous support. He was a life-member of the Program’s Advisory Board, and together with Gerry Sue Arnold was its second chair. He received an honorary Doctorate from the College of Charleston in 2012.
Norman was also a dear and reliable friend. It is very sad to see those who created the Jewish Studies Program at the College and who were its most effective and ardent advocates pass from the scene. I will miss him.
A memorial service for Norman will take place at Beth Shalom in Columbia at 10am on Wednesday, August 17th. Burial will be at the Emanu-El Cemetery on Sycamore Street in West Ashley
at 2:30pm The family will receive comforters in Arnold Hall at the College of Charleston, 96 Wentworth Street, immediately after the burial, at about 4pm. There will be a mincha service at 5pm in Arnold Hall.
May Gerry Sue and his family receive comfort among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. His memory is already a blessing.
