CounetC ot Okthodm cPabbis g Jtettigt3



Meeting of Rabbis held on Third day of Parsha Shmos, 5690 (January 21, 1930) at
Congregation Emanuel, Woodrow Wilson and Taylor Roads, Detroit, Michigan.
Present were Rabbis Ashinsky, Osishkin, Eisenman, Thumim, Strauss, Fischer, Za-
ger, Horowitz, Fein, and Stollman.
Decisions made:
1) Organize to strengthen quality of Jewish life and observance in the community.
2) Creation of Federation of Synagogues to form VAAD Ho'Eer.
3) Decision that participating Rabbis will not issue individual certification of Kash-
rut — all certifications will come from a central committee of the VAAD.
In 1938, Rabbi Leizer Levin arrived in Detroit and began to play an active role in the
Council which eventually led to his becoming the President and "Av Bes Din of the
Council". The expanded activity of the Vaad Harabonim necessitated its moving from a
one desk operation on Linwood to the eventual purchase of its own headquarters. At
the helm of its operations came Rabbi Chaskel Grubner who had been with the Council
since 1950 as Executive Director. Through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Julius Roten-
berg and the Karbal, Safran and Pollack families, the first building was acquired on
Seven Mile Road in 1963. Within ten years, the population shift necessitated a change
to the present office located at 17071 W. 10 Mile Road in Southfield, Michigan.
The Council of Orthodox Rabbis, enjoys the supoort of all segments of our commu-
nity. Its membership reflects a unity of European and American trained Orthodox
Rabbis, all working for the same goals originally set forty-five years ago. The ex-
panded services of the VAAD now include:
KASHRUTH: The Vaad Harabonim renders reliable and uniform Kash-
ruth supervision over all establishments that cater to the needs of the Jewish
populatioh, such as Kosher meat markets, slaughterhouses, caterers and bak-
eries. Precise and scientific information on Kosher products is readily avail-
able. Advice and help on Kashuring of homes is available through our office.

For Reservations

BETH DIN: In the tradition of our people, the Vaad offers to any individual or
group an opportunity to settle 'differences before a Rabbinical Court (Beth Din) rather
than resorting to litigation in a civil court. Inquiries regarding Jewish law, and ritual,
are expertly answered. _
The Beth Din also spends much time in establishing the personal status of many
individuals who are in Israel and abroad.
CONVERSION AND ADOPTION: All cases handled in accordance with HALAHA
to obviate the very serious and often tragic consequences that arise from this status.
FAMILY COUNSELING: A Rabbi is always-available to counsel on marital prob-
lems, family relations and personal adjustments.
CH A PLA I NC Y PROG RAM: To ameliorate the complex problems of the aged in our
community, the VAAD HARABONIM designed Rabbi Joshua Sperka as its Chaplain
who regularly visits and provides religious services to our Nursing, Convalescent
Homes and Hospitals.

Dinner 7 p.m.

LIBRARY: A Rabbinic reference library has been established, and is available to
the entire Jewish Community.

PUBLICATIONS: Bulletins and brochures bringing vital information to the com-
munity are being published from time to time.

activities and service in the community.

VAAD HAYESHIVOTH: The VAAD HAROBONIM, provides credentials to author-
ized representatives collecting on behalf of Yeshivos and charitable institutions here
and abroad.
