Max Fisher Elected President of Detroit Jewish Welfare Federation

Max M Fisher, noted Jewish editor, was elected president of the Jewish Welfare Federation of Detroit, at a meeting of the Federation board of governors. He succeeds Federal Judge Theodore Levin, who announced his impending retirement at the Federation annual meeting last month.

Mr. Fisher’s first act of office was to present Judge Levin with an inscribed gavel expressing the community’s appreciation of his four years of distinguished service as Federation president. The gavel was made in Israel, of olive wood, under the supervision of Prime Minister Ben Gurion’s staff.
