Our Hearty Greetings .. .

The Vaad Harabonim (Council of Orthodox Rabbis) ex-
tends its sincere greetings to two orthodox synagogues uniting
their strength and resources into one in order to better serve
traditional Judaism in our community. The merger of Cong.
Beth Tefila Emanuel and Cong. Beth Tikvah deserves our con-
gratulations and will serve as a superb example to synagogues
that need to be transplanted into new neighborhoods.
To assure themselves of a wise, scholarly and authentic
spokesman of Traditional Judaism Rabbi Leizer Levin was
called to be the spiritual leader of the newly merged congre-
We therefore extend our warmest greetings to our Pre-
sidium Chairman, colleague, scholar and leader, Rabbi Leizer
Levin on the occasion of his election and acceptance of this
new position. The Vaad Harabonim is confident that Rabbi
Leizer Levin will continue to serve the entire Jewish Community
and especially the new area of the Congregation with the some
vigor, devotion, and faith as he has during his long, distinguished
career in the Detroit Rabbinate.
