Saul Kurlat- of Cambridge. April 1, 2021. Beloved husband of the late Gitta Kurlat. Saul’s life story was the American dream: his brilliance, persistence and hard work moved him from poverty to success. Trained at Georgia Tech as an engineer, he built Eikonics, a firm that pioneered innovative photographic and imaging processes. In retirement he devoted time and resources to philanthropy, focusing particularly on health research and addressing the needs of children and the elderly. Saul was a blessing to his friends and to his community, generous in his concerns and his support of many individuals and institutions. Donations in Saul’s memory may be made to Temple Israel of Boston or 2Life Communities. Funeral services are private.
