This is a letter written to the Grandson of Alexander Ziskind Gurwitz on the occasion of the Grandson's graduation in 1946. A.Z. Gurwitz was 92 years old at the time of the writing and died the next year. A.Z. Gurwitz was a very learned man though during his time in the U.S. he wrote only in Hebrew and spoke Yiddish.

Many thanks to anyone who will undertake to translate this letter for his still living Grandson.

Kind Regards

Joe Gerber Glass
