I have a strong interest in sculptures, especially those related to mathematics, and I have made some in stone, bronze and wood. Here are links to webpages showing my work, and links to the artists who have inspired and influenced me. You can also follow the following link to an Artist's Statement Revised 2-1-2017 which I have written.

I am president of our local chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, Psi of New York. Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most prestigious liberal arts honor society in the country. The link above will take you to our webpage which has information about the history of the society, our selection procedures, and lists of students who qualified in recent years.

I am the Permanent Faculty Correspondent of our local chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon, the Alpha Omicron of New York, the National Mathematical Honor Society. For information about our newly formed chapter, follow the link above.

I had been a serious ice skater (figure skating, not hockey!) since 1968. I was a member of United States Figure Skating, and for a time I was a member of the Professional Skaters Association. From 1979 until 2022, I was a member of the Binghamton Figure Skating Club. For many years I served as President of the BFSC, sometimes as Vice-President or on the Board of Governors, and I have been a volunteer instructor in the Learn-to-Skate USA program run by the club. In March 2020 the SUNY Broome Ice Center, where the BFSC skated, was closed due to COVID, so I did not skate for about 18 months. Upon reopening of that rink, I tried to skate again, but found I had lost a lot of my stamina and balance. But I also found that my feet could not tolerate being in the boots for more than 40 minutes because of a nerve problem. That time grew shorter during September 2021, and on Oct. 9, 2021, I could only skate for 15 minutes, so I realized it was not worth trying anymore. I hoped that the problem would go away by itself, but apparently could only be treated by a nerve cutting surgery. Other issues had caused me to stop serving as BFSC president or officer, so in April 2022 I resigned my membership in the club. After 54 years of figure skating, I decided to just stop. The sport has been a huge part of my life, affording me great opportunities for personal growth, physical and mental challenges, and wonderful friendships. The link in the heading above this paragraph goes to a webpage where I have put my skating resume and some pictures.

## Solomon Mandelkern History by Bernard Feingold.

Solomon Mandelkern was a famous biblical scholar, known for writing a concordance of the bible (Old Testiment). He is a distant relative of mine, and my father, Bernard Feingold, did a lot of research on Mandelkern's life and wrote a short biography which was published in an issue of the Jewish Historical Society of Maryland. A scaned copy of that article is available through the link above.

## Maryland Museum of Military History.

My father, Bernard Feingold, a retired Brig. General in the Maryland National Guard, was also very interested in military history, and helped to develop a museum at the Fifth Regiment Armory in Baltimore, Maryland. He served as a director of the museum, and started the collection of items of historical interest. The museum has considerably expanded since his passing in 1999.
