Toledo, Ohio (Jan. 9)
While installing his former assistant, Leon I. Feur, as the rabbi of the Collingwood Avenue Temple here, Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver stressed the value of religion as a stabilizing, respect-restoring force in a chaotic and bruised world.
Rabbi Feur assumes the pulpit vacated last summer by Rabbi Joseph S. Kornfeld, who left the rabbinat to assume a position in the business world.
Since his graduation from the Hebrew Union College seven years ago, Rabbi Feur has served as Rabbi Silver’s assistant in Cleveland.
On releasing him to the local temple, Rabbi Silver told the congregation of the fitness of the man it had chosen, of the duties which each owed to the other and of the importance of the relationship which was being undertaken.
