Professor Fox, who died this past summer at the age of 77, was one of the most influential figures in Jewish education during the past 50 years. As both an academic and an institution builder Fox’s impact on Jewish education was wide-ranging and profound. He shaped the thinking of scores of students, many of whom went out to important roles in contemporary Jewish education and educational scholarship.
