Myra Kraft was an extraordinary woman who touched the lives of so many people in Boston, in Israel, in the FSU, and around the world. I knew Myra from afar for the first part of my life because of her family's deep and longtime connection to Brandeis University (I graduated in 1972). Jacob Hiatt was a giant among giants, a founder of Brandeis and a huge philanthropist. His daughter Myra carried on his legacy and became a philanthropist in her own right.
