Justine Polier
Noted Jurist

Justine Wise Polier,
daughter of Stephen S. and
Louise Wise, who pursued the
leadership roles of her
parents and was among the
most accomplished women in
the judiciary and in political
circles, died July 31 at age 84.
With an attachment to the
art world as a legacy from her
mother and as a fighter for
civil rights in the quality of
her famous father, Judge
Polier also had a leadership
role in the American Jewish
Congress. Her services to
assure justice for under-
privileged children especially
distinguished her in
American Jewish life.
Judge Polier served 38
years on the New York Fami-
ly Court Bench. She was the
first woman to hold a judicial
office above magistrate in the
state.
She wrote numerous ar-
ticles and books dealing with
the legal and psychiatric pro-
blems of dealing with
children and families.
During World War II, while
on leave from the bench,
Judge Polier served as
counsel to Eleanor Roosevelt
in the Office of Civil Defense
in Washington.
She was a vice president of
the American Jewish Con-
gress and a member of the
board, and was a past presi-
dent of the Field Foundation.

Rabbi Steinberg

New York — Harav Moshe
Steinberg of New York City,
head of the Beth Din of the
Rabbinical Council of
America and a talmudic
scholar, died July 20 at age
86.

Charles Lapides

Charles S. Lapides, founder
and chief executive officer of
Quality Laundry and Dry
Cleaning, died July 26 at age
89.
Born in Rochester, N.Y., Mr.
Lapides retired in 1976 and at
that time started a home
respiratory care service. He
was a member of Cong.
Shaarey Zedek for more than
50 years and Knollwood
Country Club.
In the early 1920s, Mr.
Lapides was a Firestone tire
distributor for the entire state
of New York. For a time, Mr.
Lapides was chief national
negotiator for the industry-
wide negotiations with the
Teamsters for the Laundry
Institute.

He leaves his wife, Mollie; a
daughter, Mrs. Ronald
(Sharon) Herman; a son, Dr.
Harvey of Oakland, Calif.;
two sisters, Mrs. Edythe
Krepack of New Haven,
Conn., and Mrs. Ruth Alder-
man of Los Angeles, Calif.;
eight grandchildren and two
great-grandchildren.

'Dial-A-Brit'
Now Available

New York (JTA) — Having
flown to five states to perform
six brit milot (ritual circum-
cisions) one recent day, Rabbi
Pinchas Aloof of Delray
Beach, Fla., was more certain
than ever that the U.S.
Jewish community faced a
shortage of mohelim (ritual
circumcisers).
Seven months ago, he and
eight colleagues founded an
organization to counter that
problem. Brit-America places
mohelim where they are
especially needed — for exam-
ple Arizona, which has but
one mohel, according to Aloof.
Brit-America also is compil-
ing a list of mohelim
throughout the world to refer
to families in need. About 30
mohelim are affiliated with
the organization, but Aloof
hopes to expand soon to 200
and eventually more. Brit-
America's mohelim have per-
formed tens of thousands of
brit milot, Aloof said, about a
thousand of which were on
adults. Aloof performed a brit
on a Soviet immigrant and
his sons in a joint ceremony.
"It was a very moving ex-
perience," he said.
The rabbi said Brit-America
receives calls everyday on its
toll-free number
1-800-FOR-BRIT — seeking
information on mohelim or
the ceremony. The organiza-
tion is asking "prospective
Jewish parents to continue
the practice of the brit milah,
and to use competent
mohelim in their com-
munities," Aloof said. To use
a physician negates the
religious content, the cove-
nant with God begun with
Abraham, he noted.
