Shrodecks Celebrate 50th

MR. AND MRS. ISADORE SHRODECK

Saturday marks the 50th
wedding anniversary of Mr.
and Mrs. Isadore (Leah)
Shrodeck. They were mem-
bers of the second group of
pioneers (which they
helped organize) that sailed
for Palestine on April 29,
1933. The group of 30 young
men and women went to
Kibutz Degania B, where
Mrs. Shrodeck became the
first English teacher in the
Jordan Valley. Her hus-
band worked in the fields
and both were subsequently
asked to join the Hagana.
Upon their return to De-
troit, Mrs. Shrodeck was
graduated from Detroit
Teachers College. She
taught Hebrew and Yiddish
at the Hayim Greenberg
Hebrew Yiddish Shule,
where she headed the nur-
sery school, taught Hebrew
in the upper grades, and
later became principal of
the school.
She was in the first group
of Hebrew teachers licensed
by the Board of Licensure
for Teachers in Jewish
Schools. In recent years
until her retirement she
taught at the Combined
Hebrew Yiddish Shule and
the United Hebrew Schools.
She has been active in
Labor Zionist circles and
is presently secretary of
the Labor Zionist Coun-
cil. Upon her retirement
from teaching she has
embarked on a career in
calligraphy.
Shrodeck left the Univer-
sity of Michigan pre-med
program in 1933 to go to
Palestine. Upon his return
to the States he continued
his Zionist activities. He is
one of the founding mem-
bers of the Brenner Branch
of LZA, a former chairman

of the Metropolitan Di-
vision of the Allied Jewish
Campaign, a former chair-
man of the LZA Council,
and is. presently executive
vice president of the Histad-
rut Campaign.
He also is a member of the
Jewish Community Council
Executive Committee and
its -Committee on Interna-
tional Concerns.

Shrodeck is active in the
Detroit Zionist Federation,
was a former chairman of
the Detroit Zionist Council,
and was a delegate to the
founding convention of the
American Zionist Federa-
tion. He is also chairman of
the Political Actions Com-
mittee of the Detroit LZA.
The Shrodecks have a
daughter, Rena Faller,
and four grandchildren:
Mark, Howard, Beth and
Andrew.
The Shrodecks are celeb-
rating a double "simha"
since Andrew celebrates
his Bar Mitzva on their 50th
wedding anniversary.

"THE RIGHT
TIME"

MISS LEVIN

Mr. and Mrs. Harold
'Levin of Southfield an-
nounce the engagement of
their daughter, Sharil Beth,
to Jeffrey Allen Roby, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Roby
of West Bloomfield.
A June wedding is
planned.

Quite simply, this kind of
elegance is a function of the
superior value Baume &
Mercier builds into each,
handcrafted timepiece. From
the exquisite 14K gold
bracelets, to the ultra thin,
unerringly precise quartz
movement, the total effect is
obviously, Baume & Mercier.
