A Centennial Celebration of a Life Devoted to Equal Rights: Beatrice Edelson the Centenarian

  • January 7, 2015

A generous tribute donation has been made by Dr. Kenneth L. Edelson in loving memory of his mother, Beatrice Edelson, who would have celebrated her 100th birthday Jan 11, 2015! Beatrice’s 100 year life was always devoted to ensuring people had equal rights, conquering social injustices and making sure prejudice bigotry and hatred were abolished from her community and the world around her, and it began with instilling good social values in her children at a very early age.

Beatrice began as president of the local Brooklyn B’nai B’rith chapter and remained an advocate, supporter, and leader with the Anti-Defamation League her entire life, both in action, in her heart and in every fibre of her being.

The ADL New York Region proudly acknowledges the late Beatrice Edelson for her determination to combat bigotry and hate. ADL thanks the Edelson Family for their generous contribution in support of ADL’s vital work.
