Anthony (Tony) Glickman's Page
Rabbi Ozer "Tony" Glickman
(August 10, 1950 - March 19, 2018)

This page was created September 20, 2018
with corrections and updates made September 21, 2018

I compiled this page from information I found on the internet from various sources.
There is a lot of information about Rabbi Glickman, several obituaries and memorials were written.
I summarize the details here and provide some links. He had communicated with me in February 2018
in order to update his information on this site and then died suddenly in March from a heart attack.
May his memory be a blessing.

Rabbi Ozer "Tony" Glickman

Rabbi Ozer Glickman, was an expert in Jewish law and business ethics. He was a member of the rabbinical faculty at Yeshiva University in New York. He resided in Teaneck, New Jersey. He remained active in finance and business his entire life and served as vice president of strategic risk management at Canada's Imperial Bank of Commerce. He pursued both his professional career and his academic and religious careers at the same time because that was very important to him.

He had been described as "an intellectual giant who was steeped in Torah knowledge and well versed in multiple disciplines." A colleague described him as "...always very friendly [with] a wicked sense of humor." He was also very fond of European soccer.

Another person has described Tony as a "Scholar, rabbi, father, teacher, husband, investment banker, wordsmith, grandfather, risk management expert, composer, linguist, trader, conversationalist, sports fan, philosopher, ethicist, chazzan, wit, lecturer, moral guide, Renaissance man; all of these descriptions are accurate."

Following graduation from Central High School in 1967 he received his B.A. degree in philosophy from Columbia University. He then earned an MBA in finance from New York University's Stern School of Business in 1980. He also studied philosophy and religion at the University of Toronto. Rabbi Glickman is survived by his wife, Ilana, six children and ten grandchildren.

Here are some links to obituaries and memorials written about Rabbi Ozer Glickman.
I have made archival copies of each article in case they should disappear from the web.
