Sigmund Rohl* (right), industrialist and philanthropist, has
presented the newly published book, "Proverbs to Live By," by Rabbi
Joshua Sperka (left), to 50 colleges in Michigan. Rohlik, born in
Magdeburg. Germany, married Sophie Wasserman and together they
migrated to America. They have been in the United States since
1937. Here Rohlik re-established his manufacturing plant and pro-
gressively built up a successful venture in his field. On the occasion
of his 75th birthday, Mr. and Mrs. Rohlik awarded $100,000 in
scholarships to Wayne State University through the Sigmund and
Sophie Rohlik Foundation. Mr. and Mrs. Rohlik also have a room
dedicated to the memory of their parents in Yeshiva Beth Yehuda.
Last week Rohlik made the presentation of Rabbi Sperka's book to
the Wayne State University libraries. Dr. Flint Purdy (center),
WSU librarian, accepted the books on behalf of the university. Dr.
Purdy in his acceptance said: "This translation by Rabbi Sperka
will be treasured as a new approach to the appreciation of the
ancient wisdom the world needs today."
