The Malmud-Kravitz Foundation
Dr. Leon Malmud, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, is retired from a career as a radiologist at Temple University Children's Medical Center.  Dr. Malmud served as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Temple University Health System from 1996 to 2001. He also served as the dean of the Temple University School of Medicine and Vice President of Temple University Hospital.  Dr. Elsa Malmud is retired from a career as a psychologist in the Department of Child and Adolescent Medicine and Behavioral Sciences at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Leon and Elsa have been Philadelphia Orchestra season subscribers since 1965. In addition to attending special events throughout the season, the couple subscribe to four subscription series. They frequently attend concerts with their daughters, Susan and Anne. In 2017, Leon and Elsa established The Henrietta Varbalow Kravitz Music Library Fund at The Philadelphia Orchestra to support the acquisition of musical scores in perpetuity. The fund is named in memory of Elsa’s late mother who began attending Philadelphia Orchestra concerts in 1930.
