Identifier: B111.01.0001.0020


Rabbi Samuel Baskin served in pulpits in Denver, Salt Lake City, and Brooklyn. His son, Rabbi Bernard Baskin, temporarily replaced Rabbi Herbert Friedman at Temple Emanuel when the latter became a wartime chaplain from 1944 to 1947. He retired after 40 years at a liberal synagogue in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Bernard's wife was Marjorie Schatz, known and admired for her expertise in metallurgy, health care, social service, and Jewish community affairs. Elfrieda Erlich was Marjorie Shatz's mother, the daughter of German Jewish immigrants who settled in Colorado in 1906, following relative Louis Erlich who had immigrated to Boulder.
