Mark Wilf '84 to speak on business, football, and tzedakah
Mark Wilf '84, owner/president of the Minnesota Vikings NFL team and principal of the family-owned Garden Homes real estate firm, will give a lecture entitled “Business, Football, and Tzedakah: A Tiger’s Journey.” The lecture is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow.
The Hebrew word Tzedakah refers to the obligation to do what is right and just, which Judaism emphasizes as a vital part of spiritual life. This concept is especially important to Wilf, who is involved in local, national and global efforts to ensure the welfare and vitality of the Jewish people.
Wilf majored in electrical engineering and computer science, and served as the radio voice for Tigers football and basketball. After graduating from Princeton, Wilf earned a law degree from New York University Law School in 1987. He currently serves on the boards of Princeton’s Center for Jewish Life and Varsity Club, and on the University’s Capital Leadership Committee. He is also a member of the boards for the New York University Law School and the Vikings Children’s Fund.
The Gilbert Lecture Series was established in 1988 to bring innovative leaders in business, government and the professions to campus to discuss their ventures and the insights gained in their careers. This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Career Services and Department of Athletics.
