About Louis Susman
Louis Susman extended his generosity toward the less fortunate in his community and Israel. He was particularly interested in Jewish philanthropy and Jewish education. Mr. Susman was deeply committed to Spertus Institute of Jewish Learning and Leadership and Technion. With his daughter and son-in-law, Helen and Norman Asher, he established the family's continuing commitment to the community. Mr. Susman bequeathed his entire estate to philanthropic organizations, with a significant portion going to the Jewish Federation's Endowment Fund and several of our beneficiary agencies.
Mr. Susman was born in 1888 in Poland, the eldest son of seven children. At 17, he immigrated to the United States and eventually settled in Chicago where he married Rebecca Levenfeld and became a successful builder.
As an ongoing memorial to his generosity and to honor his life, the Jewish Federation has named this annual event in honor of Louis Susman.
