South Brunswick man named a ‘Loyal Son’ of Rutgers

NORTH BRUNSWICK – Roy H. Tanzman of the Kendall Park section of South Brunswick is among seven Rutgers University alumni who have been designated Loyal Sons and Loyal Daughters by the Rutgers Alumni Association (RAA).

The honorees will be inducted during a “scarlet-tie” affair to be held at Neilson Dining Hall on the Cook/Douglass Campus of Rutgers University, New Brunswick, on April 8.

Tanzman, RC’73, CLAW’76, has been president of Rutgers Hillel for the past six years. Through his efforts, a parcel of land that was purchased for a new Hillel building was swapped for another piece of land across College Avenue so that the university would have the property needed for the Honors College to become a reality, according to information provided by the RAA.

In addition, Tanzman played a role in securing a gift from the Marion and Norman Tanzman Charitable Foundation for the establishment of the Marion and Norman Tanzman Hall of Jewish Learning, which is a part of the Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences.
