Si Kenen,
AIPAC Founder

Si Kenen

Si Kenen leaves a legacy in
American Jewish liber-
tarianism that is unmatched
in Jewish activism on a world
scale. As founder of AIPAC —
American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee — Isaiah L.
Kenen, who died in
Washington on March 23 at
age 83, was the activist who
had as much admiration from
the non-Jewish community as
from the fellow Jews he had
enlisted in his efforts to
galvanize the movement that
began with support for the
Zionist cause and proceeded
to the time of his death.
He knew nearly every
member of both Houses of
congress since 1943 until his
retrement from the AIPAC
executive directorship in
1974.
A native of New Brunswick,
Mr. Kenen began his long
career of lobbying in support
of a Jewish state in 1943 in
New York as director of the
American Emergency Com-
mittee on Zionist Affairs. He
was the Jewish Agency's in-
formation director at the
United Nations in 1947 and
1948 and then in 1949 was a
member of the first Israeli
delegation to the United
Nations.
He moved to Washington in
1951 and established the
American Zionist Committee

to lobby Congress in support
of Israel. three years later the
committee became AIPAC,
the only official lobby for
Israel in the United States.

Dr. George Leib

A pioneering activist in
Alpha Omega and related
dental movements, Dr.
George Leib who died March
28 at age 85, had important
roles here in B'nai B'rith and
the Zionist movement.
With his brother, Dr. Sidney
Leib, and as a legacy from his
father who attended the first
World Zionist Congress, he
was devoted to the efforts of
the Zionist Organization of
Detroit. He was a life-long
participant in B'nai B'rith af-
fairs and in Pisgah Lodge
with his brother, the late Sam
Leib.
A graduate of Marquette
University in Milwaukee,
Wis., Dr. Leib did post-
graduate work at the Univer-
sity of Michigan Dental
School.
He was the first emeritus
life member of Alpha Omega
as well as an officer and fund
raiser. For many years, he
served on the executive coun-
cil and board of trustees of the
Detroit Alumni chapter,
which in 1964 gave him its
first award "for outstanding
service." He was business
manager for the Alpha
Omega News from 1931 to
1940. He became the business
manager of the Alpha
Omegan, the international
journal of Alpha Omega, in
1952.
Dr. Leib was a life member
of the American Dental
Association, the Michigan
State Dental Association and
the Detroit District Dental
Society. The society gave him
its highest award, the cer-
tificate of merit, in 1959. For
14 years, Dr. Leib was chair-
man of technical exhibits for
the dental society's mid-
autumn meetings. He raised
nearly $175,000 for the socie-
ty through the sale of exhibit
space.
He was past president of
Pisgah Lodge of B'nai B'rith.
He held membership in the
Zionist Organization of
America, American Jewish
Congress, Moslem Temple,
Scottish Rite, Perfection
Lodge of th Masons, Shrine
Club, Adat Shalom
Synagogue and Hannah
Schloss Old Timers. He was a
32nd degree Mason.
Dr. Leib leaves his wife, Yet-
ta; three sons, Dr. Joel,
Sheldon and Maxwell; two
brothers, Meyer W. and Dr.
Sidney Z.; two sisters, Mrs.
Charles (Tillie) Weiner and
Mrs. Carolyn Kramer; and
three grandchildren.
