1Title:  Stanley J. Schachter Papers     
 Creator:  Gift of Stanley Schachter 
 Dates:  1956-2014 
 Abstract:  Stanley Joshua Schachter was born on May 27, 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After serving for 15-years as vice chancellor at The Jewish Theological Seminary, he moved to Chicago where he began his rabbinical career. Schachter and his wife Lifsa moved to Cleveland in the 1980s when Schachter was offered the position of senior rabbi at B'nai Jeshurun. The leadership at B'nai Jeshurun worked closely with Schachter during the synagogue's historic move to the Pepper Pike facility. From 1987 to 2002, Schachter served as the synagogue's spiritual leader, and was rabbi emeritus until his retirement in 2015. Following his retirement, Schachter continued to teach at the Siegal College of Judaic Studies and worked as Jewish chaplain at The Cleveland Clinic. In 2007, his book The Book of Laughter and Torah was published, which describes the relationship between Jewish humor and Jewish religious teachings. The Stanley J. Schachter Papers collection consists of articles, notes, sermons, and speeches.
