Adam Solomon Greatly Missed

With great sorrow and shock, the Board of Directors, Leadership Council and staff of Tanenbaum remember our founding Board member, Adam Solomon.

Adam inspired us with his strategic brilliance and loyal commitment to making an impact in overcoming religious hatred and intolerance. But even more, he was a dear and treasured friend, whose loss is felt keenly by us all.

We send heartfelt condolences to Adam’s wife Vicki, his children James, Peter, David and Jessica and his sister Tracy.

Too young, too soon.

    To: The family of Adam Solomon, Georgette, you, Tanenbaum Board Members and Leadership Council,

    Knowing and working with Adam at the Tanenbaum Center was truly an experience I will cherish for many years. He was a gentlemen. I will miss his vision of peace through religious tolerance and understanding. He understood the complexity of the issues which surrond using religion as a tool to try to acheive peace in this world. May his memory and his ideals live on in the work of the Tanenbaum Center.

    As a member of Tanenbaum Center advisory boards on religion and conflict resolution almost since its founding, I am heartbroken to learn of Adam Solomon’s tragically premature death. He embodied the best of the Abrahamic-Judeo values of selfless generosity and care for the stranger. I mourn with his wife, Vicki, and four children and with Georgette Bennett, Joyce Dubensky, the Tanenbaum board and entire family.

    Adam’s legacy will inspire the Tanenbaum Center to even greater levels of peacemaking and inter-faith peace.

    Thank you for your insightful words. Adam was very proud of Tannenbaum, your efforts and your strategies for the future.
