The office has fallen to Mrs. Joseph H. Ehrlich, member of the national board of Hadassah. She is considered Detroit’s outstanding woman leader in Jewish affairs.

Other officers chosen were: Aaron DeRoy, honorary president; Adolph Finsterwald, honorary chairman of the board; Clarence H. Enggass, chairman of the board; Maurice Aronsson, vice-chairman of the board; Israel Himelhoch, Julian H. Krolik, Henry Meyers and Simon Shetzer, vice-presidents; and Esther R. Prussian, secretary.
