Sam Beber, Started Youth
Counterpart of Bnai Brith

CHICAGO (JTA)— Sam
Beber, founder and first
president of Beth El
Synagogue in Omaha,
Neb., died Aug. 25 at age
75. Mr. Beber started the
Bnai Brith Youth Or-
ganization,. the largest
teenage movement in the
world.
In 1924 Mr. Beber, then
2 nd a magna cum
1 graduate of
-Creighton University's
Law School, organized
Aleph Zadik Aleph as a
boy s group in his native
Omaha, utilizing the first
and last letters of the
Hebrew alphabet as a
counterpoint to Greek-
letter fraternities.

Two years later, Beber,
serving as the youngest
member of Bnai Brith's
national board, persuaded
the organization to assume
sponsorship of the prog-
ram which, with a girls'
counterpart added in 1944,
currently enrolls more
than 40,000 youngsters in
its activities.
Some 650,000 young-
sters have participated in
the program since its
founding and Mr. Beber
took pride in the sub-
sequent professional and
public achievements of
many of its "alumni." An
AZA distinguished alum-
nus award named for
Beber is presented each
year.
One of Mr. Beber's ear-
liest disciples whom he
enrolled in AZA was
Philip M. Klutznick, later
to serve as Bnai Brith
president and as U.S.
Ambassador to the UN.
They became brothers-
in-law and business
partners in the creation
of Forest Park, Ill., a
model for planned "com-
munities. The pioneer de-
velopment,-begun in 1946,
is now a city of 50,000.
