Judge Meir Steinbrink Hamed to Full Term As Head of B’nai B’rith Anti-defamation League

New York State Supreme Court Justice Meir Steinbrink has been elected to a full term as national chairman of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, it was announced yesterday. Justice Steinbrink had been named last September to fill out the term of the late Sigmund Livingston of Chicago, who served as the head of the organization for more than 33 years, until his death in June.

Richard E. Gutstadt, who has been national director of the organization since 1932, was granted an extended leave, and Benjamin R. Epstein, assistant national director, was named to serve as acting national director during his absence. New members of the national commission of the League elected were William A. Gerber of Philadelphia; John J. Unterman of Newark, N.J.; Joseph Cohen of Kansas City, Kansas; and Frank Goldman of Lowell, Mass., newly elected president of B’nai B’rith, who replaces the late Henry Monsky.
