Longtime AmCham Taiwan member, Ephraim Ferdinand Einhorn died September 15, 2021 — three days after his 103rd birthday — in National Taiwan University Hospital after an extended illness. He will be buried in Israel.
Born in Vienna, Einhorn was a naturalized American citizen who had lived in Taiwan since 1975. He had many contacts in Eastern Europe and over the years assisted Taiwan in developing connections with such countries as Poland and Lithuania. At times his AmCham membership was held in the name of the Polish Chamber of Commerce. He was also president of the Taipei-based World Patent Trading Co. and, trained as a Rabbi, he was the spiritual leader of the Taiwan Jewish Community.
In 2016, the AmCham Board of Governors presented Einhorn with a certificate as a Lifetime Honorary Member. A TOPICS article at the time introduced the man and his achievements.
