The Passing Of Abe Wise, of Blessed Memory

Thursday, September 26, 2013; 12:00am

The Judaic Studies Program at UCF mourns the passing of Abe Wise on September 26, 2013.

Abe was a founding member of the UCF Judaic Studies Program, a friend and continuous supporter of the program since its inception, and a pillar of the community. Abe and his wife, Tess, have established the Endowed Professorship in Judaic Studies at UCF, thus showing their life-long commitment to higher Jewish education, and their involvement in community-wide plans for Jewish learning. His love for Israel and his concern for the American Jewish community were manifested throughout the years in his discussions and comments at our annual Advisory Board meetings.

We will miss him and will treasure his memory and his educational goals.

The Judaic Studies faculty and staff extend to Tess and the family our profound condolences.

In the traditional message to the mourners: May you be consoled with the bereaved of Zion and Jerusalem.
