Groundbreaking for New Hebrew Memorial Chapel Set for Nov. 25

Irwin I. Cohn will direct the
groundbreaking ceremonies for
the new Hebrew Memorial
Chapel at 26640 Greenfield,
near Eleven Mile Road in Oak
Park, Sunday, Nov. 25, begin-
ning at 11 a.m. The public is
invited.
The chapel is being built by
the Hebrew Benevolent Society
(Chesed Shel Emes), of which
Morris Dorn is president. Na-
than P. Rossen is chairman of
the building committee; Hyman
Mitnick is chairman of the
building campaign; Sam Nelson
is honorary president; and Bar-
ney Citrin is honorary secretary.
Rabbi Israel I. Rockove is the
executive director.
The groundbreaking cere-
monies mark the beginning of
the final stages of a project
started many months ago in
which there has been a great
interest shown, not only by
members of Chesed Shel
Emes, but also by leaders of
over 60 other organizations,
synagogues and clubs in the
community.
Many civic leaders have ex-
pressed an interest in the pro-
ject and are giving assistance
to the building campaign.
Participants in the ground-
breaking ceremonies, in addi-
tion to Cohn and the organiza-
tion's executives, will be Dr.
Jacob E. Goldman, guest
speaker; and Rabbi Isaac Stoll-
man, president of the Council
of Orthodox Rabbis.
Letters of confirmation and
acceptance of an invitation to
attend the ceremonies have
already been received from
many distinguished persons, in-
cluding R. J. Alexander, Mayor
of Oak Park; State Rep. Ray
Baker of Berkeley, Mich.; Judge
Ira G. Kaufman, Presiding
Judge of the Wayne County
Probate Court; Oak Park's
Municipal Judge Burton R.
Shifman; and Albert Rosen,
commander, Department of
Michigan, Jewish War Veterans
of the United States.
Currently in its 46th year,
the Hebrew Benevolent So-
ciety was organized in 1916
for the purpose of providing
burial services for Jewish
families, regardless of econ-
omic status.
In the fall of 1961, the He-
brew Benevolent Society pur-
chased 52 monuments, at the
expense of the society, and
placed them on the heretofore
unattended graves of 52 "lonely
souls" at the Hebrew Memorial
Park Cemetery, which is main-
tained by the organization. Dig-
nified "unveiling" services were
held.
When first organized in 1916,
