Oberlin Review Updates UAW Contract Story and Alumni Assistance to Custodial Staff

https://oberlinreview.org/21559/news/alumni-fund-seeks-to-create-just-transition-for-outsourced-workers/




 

A message from Alan Goldman, a friend and a vital part of recent Oberlin Reunions.

Greetings, everyone.  I hope you are well, both physically and emotionally.   

 

The obvious, and tempting, Rosh HaShanah message for 5781 is that the current year cannot end soon enough.  It has been a year defined worldwide by the COVID pandemic, and in the U.S. by significant political and racial turmoil.  We are all yearning for a healthier, saner, more positive year ahead.  

 

And yet, as observers both religious and secular have pointed out, we have learned lessons from our experiences over the last six months:  appreciating our relationships with the people in our lives; enjoying small pleasures; and being more sensitized to those in need - to name a few.  

 

These are relevant lessons at any time, and certainly are resonant as we approach the holidays, traditionally a time for introspection and reflection. 

 

As Jews, we tend toward optimism, even during difficult times like these.  I think this is because of the values imparted by our tradition, and (often) because the realities we faced were so difficult that there was no alternative but to hope for a better tomorrow.  

 

Oberlin too is a hopeful place, because it always looks toward the future.  It provides a platform for young adults to generate their visions for an improved world, and to begin realizing those visions through writing, activism and volunteer work, as well as through their eventual career choices.

 

I wish each of you a happy, healthy, peaceful New Year.

 

Best regards,

Alan

Here is an article that appeared in Around the Square this week.

Members of the Classes of 1967 and 1969 are joining this site in order to have a single site for discussion of concerns around the Gibson's lawsuit.

Since our classes will all rejoin  for the next cluster reunion, this anticipates that.  We hope to be able to combine the current Class of 1968 and 1969 sites and make it a central portal for all three classes, once we solve  some technical issues.  Class members from '68 and '69 may also chime in on whether that's a good move before we do so.

The One Oberlin Report:

President Ambar and other Oberlin Faculty have planned a speaking tour to inform alumni about this report and the progress towards implementation.

The Report WAS adopted by the General Faculty by a nearly unanimous vote in May.

HI, Everyone:

Thanks to Aaron Levin, we now have a recording of the Class Memorial Service, held during the Reunion. Effectively edited, it is about 26 minutes long.  You can listen to it by clicking below. Whatever software you use for listening to audio should start up when you click the link.

 If for some reason that doesn't work for you, let me know.  I can email a file that is small enough for most emails to handle.

Thanks.
