mutual problems has emerged a
new community organization
known as the Council of Syna-
gogue Executive Directors of
Metropolitan Detroit.
Its emergence two years ago
as a formal organization em-
bracing seven of the larger De-
troit area congregations serves
to emphasize the growing num-
ber of synagogues that rely on
an executive director to manage
the many details of congrega-
tional administration
The growing number of syna-
gogues with executives is indica-
tive of the growth in the size
of congregations, since very few
small congregations can afford,
or have the need for a full-time
Realizing, however, that the
problems of all synagogues are
the same, whether large, small
or medium - sized, the Council
of Executive Directors has ar-
ranged, • convened and partici-
pated in several seminars for
lay leaders.
Such subjects have been dis-
cussed as membership and mem-
bership integration, leadership,
the cost of synagogue affilia-
tion, board responsibilities and
The Council also has cooper-
ated with the Jewish Community
Council in presenting a program
on synagogue budgeting and fi-
nancial planning which was at-
tended by leaders of some 30
local congregations.
Currently in preparation, also
in cooperation with the Commu-
nity Council, is the first Detroit
Synagogue Directory, which will
list the names of all Detroit
area congregations, their loca-
tions, professional staffs, num-
ber of families affiliated, re-
ligious school facilities, year
founded, national affiliation and
other pertinent information.
At its recent election meeting,
the Council elected Louis Haber
of Adas Shalom Synagogue to
serve as president during the
coming year, beginning in Jan-
uary. He succeeds Irving I. Katz
of Temple Beth El, who was the
founding president. Frank L.
