Heartfelt Condolences To The Halbert Family

Bookmark and Share


The entire CFHU community deeply mourns the passing of Dr. Ralph Halbert z’l, a long-time friend, supporter and visionary of Hebrew University.

Consistent with the importance Ralph attached to education, he cared greatly about Hebrew University. In 1976, he established the Halbert Centre for Canadian Studies, which today continues to flourish and grow.

Ralph was National Chair of CFHU from 1978 to 1984, and Chair of HU’s International Board of Governors from 1993 to 1996, the only Canadian to hold this prestigious position. But more than titles and formal positions, he was always generous in his support, friendship and wise counsel.

A classy man, Ralph will always be remembered for his leadership, integrity, devotion, philanthropy and thoughtfulness.

CFHU extends its heartfelt condolences to the Halbert family on this terrible loss.

May Ralph’s memory be for a blessing.
