Clarence Enggass Dies at 80; had Distinguished
Career of Unbroken Leadership in Movements

Clarence H. Enggass, distin-
guished community leader whose
contributions extended to many
movements and who inspired the
youth to participate in public af-
fairs, died last Friday at Harper
Hospital after a brief illness.
Private funeral services were
held.
His residence was at 850 Whit-
more Rd. He is survived by his
wife, Helen; son, Dr. Robert Eng-
gass, assistant professor of art
history at Pennsylvania State Uni-
versity and a brother, Maurice.
He was to have been honored
in the fall by the Zionist Organiza-
tion of Detroit, of which he was a
lifelong associate. Past president
of the Jewish Welfare Federation,
he had, until recent weeks attend-
ed every public function of the
JWF and the Allied Jewish Cam-
paign, and he was present at all
Zionist affairs in the past year.
Associated with a large num-
ber of causes, at the time of his
death he still held memberships
on the boards of the Jewish Com-
munity Center, United Jewish
Charities and American ORT
Federation.
Born in Detroit, July 15, 1883

son of Adolph and Barbara
(Hirshman) Enggass, Mr. Eng-
gass was educated in the De-
troit public schools and the
Detroit Business University. For
56 years he was the head of

lifelong member of Temple
Beth El, the Enggass family
having been associated with the
congregation since its founding
113 years ago. In fact the Beth
El Society was founded in the
home of Isaac Cozens, Mr.
Enggass' great-grandfather.
Mr. Enggass' grandfather, Moses
Hirschman, was the second presi-
dent of Temple Beth El, in 1859.
The following year, in 1860, Mrs.
Enggass' grandfather, Emanuel
Schloss, was president of Temple
Beth El. Thus there were un-
broken ties with many move-
ments in whose annals the Eng-
gass name was indelible.
Mr. Enggass' parents, although
devoted members of Temple
Beth El, preferred that their son
should be Bar Mitzvah rather
than confirmed, and to complete
the Bar Mitzvah requirements
he studied daily for an entire
year with Rabbi Louis Grossman,
Dr. Leo M. Franklin's predecess-
or, and became Bar Mitzvah in
1896.
Clarence was born on Sproat St.
off of Woodward Ave. He loved to
tell of sledding down Cass Ave. on
winter afternoons, during his boy-
hood, thereby indicating how the
city had spread, after being con-
centrated in the present downtown
section.

sky, was a founder of the United

tion League and Jewish War Vet-
erans' Lawrence Jonas Auxiliary,

Rites Mark 60th Year
Since Herzl's Death

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM — A solemn cere-
mony atop Mount Herzl Tuesday
marked the 60th anniversary of
the death of Theodor Herzl, the
father of political Zionism.
President Zalman Shazar and(
Jewish Agency Executive Chair-'-,_
man Moshe Sharett led a distin-
guished gathering in paying trib-
ute to Herzl's memory. At the
same time, a special exhibition of
documents pertaining to the his-
tory of Zionism was opened at
the Herzl Museum here.

While Detroit is noted as the
automobile capital of the world,
the wide diversity of manufactur-
ing in Michigan is attested to by
the fact that Michigan has manu-
facturing operations in 365 of 418
industry groups recognized by the
United States Bureau of the
Census.
