Marshall T. Meyer

October 1991

In 1982, Dartmouth honored Marshall Meyer with an honorary degree for his contributions to Argentinean Jewish life. He founded the only university-level rabbinical seminary on the Latin American continent, an institution that has trained young men born and raised in South America to become religious leaders in their native land. He served on the boards of several groups associated with the "Peace Now" movement, including the U.S. Interreligious Center for Peace in the Middle East. He dedicated his life to the belief in elemental human rights, he wrote and spoke out frequently about repression in Argentina and undertook direct action on behalf of the oppressed and their families regardless of their race, creed, or color.
