Avrohm Wisenberg believed in education. More than that, he lived his commitment to professional excellence and then worked tirelessly to share it with his colleagues. From his support of basic research to his conviction that every individual in the insurance business must find a path for continual growth, Avrohm was a model for his peers. We are pleased to have established two annual scholarships in the name of Avrohm Wisenberg - student, teacher, mentor, and friend.
