Sol Adler, fired head of 92nd St. Y, hangs himself

(JTA) — Sol Adler, the longtime executive director of New York’s 92nd Street Y who was fired after revelations that he had a long-term affair with his assistant, hanged himself.

Adler’s body was discovered by his wife in their Brooklyn home on Friday, the New York Post reported Sunday.

His suspected suicide came two weeks after the 92Y announced that it had hired Henry Timms, the Y’s deputy executive director, to succeed Adler. Timms had served as interim director since Adler’s firing last July.

Adler was executive director of the Y since 1988; he had started working there in 1978.

He reportedly had an extramarital affair with Catherine Marto, the Manhattan Jewish community center’s liaison for board and donor relations.

Marto also was fired after the Y deemed that she provided unsatisfactory answers to an investigation of her son-in-law, Sal Taddeo, a former Y employee who allegedly received kickbacks from Y vendors while working there.
