Albert Spiegel, Former President of The Jewish Federation, Dies at 86
Albert Spiegel, former president of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, died at the age of 86.
Spiegel's commitment and dedication to our community was surpassed only by the passion and zeal he displayed as he worked tirelessly to fulfill the Jewish tradition of tikkun olam -- making our world a better place.
He was a member of National Campaign Cabinet for United Jewish Appeal, member of the board of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, trustee for the Jewish Publication Society of America, member of the board of Overseers for The Jewish Theological Seminary of America and many more leadership positions in a total of some 18 organizations.
Spiegel was a Harvard Law School graduate, resided in Beverly Hills and was married to Bernice, with whom he shared four children.
The officers and board of directors of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles mourn his passing and wish to express their condolences to his family. -- The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles
