YAM Notes: November/December 2006

By Gregory A. Weiss

Marty Portnoy wants all our classmates to know that his new CD, Songs of Renewal, was released on July 15. It is the only CD of another artist for which famed Jewish singer/songwriter Debbie Friedman has written a liner note endorsement: “Thoughtful and gentle, mindful and kind, this loving soul takes the listener, with every note he sings, to a place of hope and calm.” This is the first of several that will be issued under Marty’s own record label, Renewal Records. Says Marty: “I hope our classmates will go to the website www.renewalrecords.com to find out more about our label and hopefully to order a copy of Songs of Renewal.

Congratulations to Ken Berv, who recently agreed to be our class AYA representative for a three-year term. Ken is thrilled that his son, Jacob, is just starting his freshman year as a member of Yale’s Class of 2010.

As Tim Wollaeger and Chip Stanberry wrote in a recent e-mail: “As the leaves turn from green to red, a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of the upcoming Yale ’66 ski trip to Vail, Colorado, at the end of January.” If you are a skier of any level you will have a lot of fun joining a great group of classmates in Vail from January 28 to February 1. Everyone who has ever participated in one of these mini-reunions has come back raving. If you have any interest at all, you should contact Tim (twollaeger@sanderling.com) or Chip (wbstanberry@spectracell.com) to learn more about the details.
