The Academic faculty of Yeshiva College and the Rashei Yeshivot of Riets embodied and conveyed "torah u-ma'ada" and during my fortunate undergraduate years of 1954-58 I gained a "road map" for the journey through life that guided and permeated my actions. Coach Tauber, may you enjoy good health and satisfaction "ad 120", you provided an added value, “mentschlikeit.” As I wrote in one of my columns as the sports editor of the commentator in 1956-57, you taught fencing to a myriad of neophytes, and led the fencing teams to victories over many other college teams whose members had much more experience and training. Above all, you taught us the quality of sportsmanship, concern for our fellow-men and women, and, moral as well as physical courage. I cherish all of this, and the reunion we had in Jerusalem several years ago. I regret not being able to participate in the June 2008 reunion. May it be a source of joy for you together with your fencers and students.

With esteem and affection,
Moshe Berlin Class of '58.


Arthur Tauber, poses for Life Magazine photographer for the May 4, 1942 issue, with his foil and mask in the fencer's salute, which is offered to one's opponent, the director or referee before and after a bout, and to ones instructor before and after a lesson. Please Note: The Foil is held in his left hand. If you recall, he most often gave his lessons holding his weapon in his right hand. In competition, he fenced left handed. He did this so that his fencers would learn in a way that would prepare them for the vast majority of opponents they would eventually be facing.
