Elazar Retires as Superintendent of UHS;
Is Succeeded by Dr. Benjamin Yapko

On June 29, friends and col-
leagues will pay tribute to United
Hebrew Schools Superintendent
Albert Elazar, who is retiring after
23 years' service to the UHS and
the community.
A reception, tendered by the of-
ficers and board of directors of
the United Hebrew Schools and

Studies, will be held 8 p.m. in
the. LaMed Auditorium.
Early in his career at the UHS,
Elazar played an important role
in the establishment of the Midra-
sha. He has been instrumental in
furthering partnership relations
with a number of synagogues in
the community, as well as in pro-
viding guidance and assistance to
the independent Jewish schools in
the area. In addition, the UHS and
the synagogues of metropolitan
Detroit have coperated in estab-
lishing the requirement that Bar
Mitzva candidates attend a Hebrew
school for five years.
Elazar was an organizer of the
_ Detroit Board of License, estab-
lished in 1966 to set minimum
standards for teachers in the
Hebrew schools.
During his administration, the
Summer Collegiate Institute at the
Hebrew University was established,
in July 1969. This study program,
sponsored by the Center for Jewish
Education and Culture of the Jew-
ish Agency, the Hebrew Univer-
sity and the Midrasha, provides
American and Canadian students
with an opportunity to deepen their
understanding of Israel. Students

Upon his retirement, Elazar will j
assume the honorary title of super-
intendent emeritus of the UHS
and president emeritus of the
Midrasha.
In July, he and Mrs. Elazar will
leave the United States to make
their home in Israel, where their
son David and his family are now
settled.
