Michigan Hillel Foundation Chief Called to Spokane Pulpit

Download PDF for this date

Announcement has been made of the appointment of Rabbi Adolph H. Fink, director of the B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundation at the University of Michigan, to Temple Emanu-El congregation at Spokane, Washington.

Rabbi Fink entered the field of student religious work as associate director of the University of Illinois Hillel Foundation at Champaign in 1925. In the Fall of 1926, he assumed the directorship at the Michigan Hillel Foundation where he has remained until the present time.

Delivery of an attack on discrimination against Jewish students by University of Michigan landladies, made at an interdenominational Goodwill banquet sponsored last Spring by the University, drew nation-wide prominence to Rabbi Fink. He delivered the invocation and benediction at the Bacculaureate exercises held in June, in connection with the Commencement program of the university.
