28 After 69 years, Oscar Z. Fasman, PhB'28, has retired from the rabbinate at age 90.

During his career, he moved the college to Skokie, IL, and founded the affiliated Yeshiva High School, which in 1981 was named in his honor. At the request of families in Lincolnwood, he became the founding rabbi of Congregation Yehuda Moshe in 1964.
