BB's Historic Pisgah Lodge
Nearing 125-Year Milestone

By IRVING I. KATZ

Executive Director,
Temple Beth El.

Bnai Brith had its begin-
ning in Detroit in 1857
- , when Pisgah Lodge No. 34
was organized by 25 mem-
bers of Temple Beth El. Its
program during the 122
years of existence was
geared to the various stages
of Jewish immigration to
the U.S., encompassing the

Miss Oesterle
Plans to Marry

MISS OESTERLE
Mrs. Herbert W. Oesterle
of Ft. Meyers Beach, Fla.,
announces the engagement
of her daughter, Patti
Lynne, to Norman Robert
Kanogur, son of Dr. and
Mrs. Raymond R. Kanogur
Of Southfield.
_ Miss Oesterle, daughter
- of the late Mr. Herbert Oes-
terle, attends Oakland
Community College. Her
fiance was graduated from
Michigan State University.
A July wedding is
planned.

,,

and including many pro-
grams in the interest of the
wider community.
Pisgah's
roster
of
presidents and district
presidents reads like a
Who's Who of the Jewish
leaders of our community.
In the record of Pisgah
Lodge are many notables.
Adolph "Daddy" Freund is
unforgettable. Julius
Deutelbaum became na-
tionally active. Judge
Theodore Levin was among
the presidents of the lodge.
A long list of the most
eminent Detroiters figured
in Pisgah history when it
was the only Bnai Brith
lodge in the area.
As Pisgah nears its 125th
birthday, it is the hope of
the leadership of Pisgah
that its membership roster
will be augmented by a
large accession of new
members so that Pisgah can
maintain its role of leader-
ship and historic continuity
in Greater Detroit as it has
in the past.

Engagements

Mr. and Mrs. Irving Hel-
ler of Beachwood, Ohio, an-
nounce the engagement of
their daughter, Judith
Heller, to Michael Lin-
den, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Louis Linden of Oak Park.
Miss Heller attends the
University of Michigan,
where she is majoring in
nursing. Her fiance is a
senior at U-M, where he is
following a pre-medical
school curriculum. A June
wedding is planned.
