Judaic Studies to Honor Bea Winkler

Beatrice Winkler, long time president of the Friends of Judaic Studies and former first lady of the University of Cincinnati, will be honored by the Department of Judaic Studies and the Friends of Judaic Studies on Tuesday, May 27.

She will be recognized for her exceptional contributions to Judaic Studies, to UC and to the entire Cincinnati Jewish community.

“Bea is a true  Eshet Hayyil, ‘Woman of Valor,’”  said Steve Fine, department head and holder of the Jewish Foundation chair in Judaic Studies at UC. “She has been with us from the beginning. Without Bea, Judaic Studies wouldn’t be near the force it is today.” 

“No one deserves it more,” said Dean Richard E. Friedman, director of Alumni Relations at UC’s McMicken College of Arts and Sciences.  Dean Friedman is chairman of the Tribute Dinner Committee.  Members of the committee include Betty Benjamin, Judith Daniels, Steven Fine, Gail Friedman, Gila Safran Naveh, Bess Paper, Polly Stein, Alice Weston and Alan Winkler.  The Beatrice Winkler Tribute Dinner is sponsored by the Department of Judaic Studies, the Friends of Judaic Studies, the Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati and the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati.

The Beatrice Winkler Tribute Dinner will be followed by the 26th Rabbi Louis Feinberg Lecture, which will be delivered by Professor David Ellenson of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.  Professor Ellenson’s topic is: “A Vision for American Judaism: Past Reality, Future Direction.”  The lecture will take place at 8 p.m. in Room 112, Lindner Hall (College of Business Administration).
