A weekend of formal dedication
took place recently at the new
Shaarey Zedek Synagogue, 1924
Coolidge, East Lansing.
Rabbi Philip Frankel, spiritual
leader, and Cantor Bruce Wetzler
conducted services of dedication
written by Rabbi Frankel. Guest
speaker was Rabbi Alfred Fried-
man of Framingham Center,
Mass., who preceeded Rabbi Fran-
kel as spiritual leader of Shaarey
Zedek.
Also participating in the service
were Dr. Hyman D. Shapiro, pres-
ident of the congregation; Mrs.
Judson Werbelow, president of the
sisterhood; Charles Levy, new
president of the youth group; and
other officers.
During a formal dinner-dance
that Saturday evening, Rabbi Fran-
kel installed the new officers and
members of the board of trustees.
They are Marvin A. Lieberman,
president; A. Stanton Golden,
business vice president; Arthur L.
Kramer, religious vice president;
1 Arnold Zumberg Jack Rachman
and Sidney Rosenberg, secretaries;
Sydney D. Goodman, treasurer;
and Alan Ginsburg, Ted A. Levy,
Francis N. Fine and Norman H.
Sernick, trustees.
The weekend was culminated
at an open house in the new
synagogue. Guests toured the
building and joined with mem-
bers in a social hour.
Among the visitors were Bishop
Alexander Zaleski of Lansing and
Mayor Gordon L. Thomas of East
Lansing.
Cong. Shaarey Zedek, organized
51 years ago, moved into the new
5750,000 synagogue in January.
The former synagogue on N. Penn-
sylvania Ave., Lansing. was built
in 1932.
The sanctuary of the new struc-
ture seats 270 persons and is con-
nected with a social hall, which
accommodates an additional 300
for services. The building also
houses 10 classrooms, offices, a
combination library and board
room, kitchen and gift shop.
