Wiesenthal Center Condolences on the Passing of Ed Snider

"It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of our longtime co-chairman of the Board of Trustees, Ed Snider. Mr. Snider, (pictured at the 2013 SWC annual banquet with Rabbi Meyer May, SWC Executive Director and Rabbi Marvin Hier, SWC Founder & Dean), was not only a great benefactor of our institution, but an iconic figure in the world of sports and business. His passing is a sad day for the Jewish people and for humanity," said Rabbi Hier.

The Center extends its heartfelt condolences to the Snider family.
