remont closed a few months later. T us, the op- portunity deferred is often the opportunity lost. Regardless, Paul gave me a wonderful, unique


gift. A friend and I joined Paul as offi cial han- dlers of Sir Gabriel, donkey star of La Boheme, for a unique and incredible night backstage at T e Met, also a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Meanwhile, Paul’s legacy of introducing people to animals, and animals to people, will continue with the work of his wife, Nancy, as she carries on with the animal talent agency and the Horse Center. - Crystal B.

On March 18, the Baltimore Sun ran a wonderful article by Fred- erick N. Rasmussen on Solomon Goldstein, a prominent Balti- more businessman and leader in the Jewish community, who had died a few days earlier. Rasmus- sen described Sol, who was one day shy of his 94th birthday, as “a lifelong advocate for racial equal- ity and justice who participated in the liberation of the Buchen- wald concentration camp during World War II.” Quoted in the article is a ros- ter of boldface names, includ- ing former Undersecretary of State Wendy R. Sherman, who served in the administrations of Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, and was a longtime family friend: “Sol was an extraordinary public servant and a businessman who believed what Judaism teaches about social justice.” Sol grew up in Baltimore, enlisted in the Army in 1941, participated in the Normandy D-Day invasion, fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and helped to liberate the Buchenwald concentration camp with Gen. George S. Pat- ton Jr.’s 3rd Army. He received the Bronze Star for valor, Purple Heart, Legion of Merit,


Combat Infantry Badge with two battle stars, for Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge, and in 2013 was awarded the Legion d’Honneur by the French government. He returned to civilian life, earned a Gen- eral Educational Development certifi cate, pur- chased a bar and then married Jean Turk (an activist involved in civil rights, anti-war pro- tests and women’s rights movements), and then entered the life insurance business, ultimately owning and operating the Lincoln National Insurance Company in Lutherville. According to Rasmussen’s article, in the 50s,


Solomon Goldstein


Sol joined Israeli Defense Forces, working spe- cifi cally to get Jews out of the So- viet Union, until the early 80s, after which he went to Ethiopia to assist the Ethiopian Jewish community. Sol was the founder of the Black Jewish Forum of Baltimore, served as presi- dent of the Baltimore Jewish Council and founded its speakers’ bureau. He chaired the Soviet Jewry Commit- tee for the National Conference for Soviet Jewry as well as the National Conference of Ethiopian Jewry. WOW! Impressive. What a fasci- nating man. So, why are we discussing Sol in T e Equiery? If you keep reading down


to almost the very end of Rasmussen’s article, you’ll fi nd it: “Mr. Goldstein enjoyed keeping and riding Tennessee walking horses.” T is is how we knew Sol. Not surprisingly, “enjoy keeping and riding… horses” is a vast understatement when it comes to Sol. Like everything else in his life, when Sol got


involved, he got involved. With the encourage- ment of fellow gaited-horse owner Sandy Mc- Cann, Sol became active in trails issues, even- tually joining the Maryland Horse Council in the early 90s as an individual member. His passion and natural leadership abilities quickly


catapulted him to a Director-at-Large for In- dividual Members spot, then to vice president, and then to president (1999 to 2001). During his tenure, he dramatically increased MHC’s individual memberships and he also was a driv- ing force in getting all the trail organizations within MHC to work together for the Trails & Greenways Committee. He singlehandedly forged a relationship between MHC and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and actively networked MHC into the Mary- land State Highway Administration in order to access federal funds known as TEA-21 (origi- nally ISTEA) for local bridle trail projects. Within MHC, he ran (and taught the future leadership how to run) tight, effi cient and ef- fective meetings. Two hours, max! “No meeting should last more than two hours,” Sol used to say. “If it does, you are doing something wrong.” On a personal level, I am grateful that Sol Goldstein graced my life. Sol took the time to give this then young businesswoman sound ad- vice, often meeting me for breakfast at Lenny’s Deli in Owings Mills. Ostensibly, we would meet to review MHC agendas and objectives, but inevitably we would end up discussing business, and he would off er me invaluable guidance from his 40 years growing and man- aging his life insurance company. Years later, he showed me one of his pet projects, the resto- ration of the Ashland Mill in Dickeyville, and he was as passionate about this as he was every other aspect of his life, from his family to his community and everything in between. A courageous soldier and human, a success- ful businessman, a loving husband, a proud father, a big thinker, a problem solver, an avid trail rider, an enthusiastic friend, a wise men- tor, and a driving force within every community he touched, Sol Goldstein was all of these. But Sol was also, quite simply, a kind and generous man. It was a privilege to have had him touch our lives, and to touch our equestrian world. - Crystal B. Pickett, publisher
