So says the Hebrew proverb: “Whosoever saves a single life, saves an entire universe.” Hearts and flowers to Seymour Askin, long-time trustee, former board member, and current honorary chairman of the The Jewish Board, who is a mensch of all mensches. Seymour was present at the re-dedication of the community center re-named in his honor on Oct. 15 — along with a host of guests, including wife Helen Mae, Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz (D–Sheepshead Bay), board trustee Arthur Leonard, board chairman Anthony Mann, board chairwoman Jean Troubh, board trustee Paul Kronish, honorary president Fredic Yerman, vice-president David Moore, and chief executive officer David Rivel.

The clinic was dedicated to him to celebrate his generosity and more than 50 years of tireless work on behalf of the agency. The center will carry on his legacy by continuing to provide individual and family therapy, psychiatric services, home visits, and support groups to address problems such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.

The Seymour Askin Clinic is a licensed outpatient mental health clinic for teens and their families in Brooklyn.

Each year, the non-profit Jewish Board serves more than 43,000 people of all ages across the five boroughs.

Standing O sends congratulations and wishes Seymour Askin. Mazel tov!
