ment of Public Welfare and the

lief-giving organizations, syna-
gogues and interested communal
workers. In addition to the
board of directors, there is a
rabbinical board composed of
rabbis from all the synagogues
and temples in the Detroit area.
The sabbath preceding Purim
has traditionally been set aside
by synagogues as "Mo'os Hitim
Day" with comments by the
rabbis highlighting the purpose
of this program.
Officers of Mo'os Hitim are
president, Harry M. Shulman;
vice presidents, Morris Dorn,
Mrs. Joseph Fisher, Baer Keidan
and George Spoon; vice presi-
dent and treasurer, Abe Katz-
man; financial secretary, Mrs.
