Jewish Leader Executive Secretary to Mayor

Maurice L. Rapheld, leader in Jewish affairs of San Francisco, was announced as executive secretary to Mayor Angelo Rossi, succeeding A. J. Cleary, who recently was elected city administrative officer under the new charter.

Rapheld’s elevation to the new post is regarded as a fitting reward to his years of public service. For 19 years consecutively he served as chief deputy tax collector, resigning to take the new position.

He is a past grand president of District Grand Lodge No. 4 of the B’nai B’rith and has been a leading figure in Jewish social welfare.
