Judge Rubiner, it is painful
to recall that he suffered
defeat for reelection to the
Detroit Common Pleas
Court in a campaign con-
ducted against him by Frank
Ferguson, who was the
brother of Senator Homer
Ferguson. Distribution of
anti-Semitic leaflets attack-
ing Judge Rubiner were ac-
credited to his defeat.
It is important to recall
that Frank Ferguson, two
years later, defeated Judge
William Friedman for E(
reelection to the circuit
court, also by means of anti-
Semitic attacks. When I ap-
proached Sen. Homer
Ferguson about the pre-
judicial endorsement of his
brother Frank in his defeat
of two Jewish candidates, he
said to me, "I'm not respon-
sible for my brother."

Judge Rubiner's career in
public life and in Jewish
leadership is recorded with
dignity and admiration. ❑

udge Charles Rubiner,
who died Feb. 21 at the
age of 92, experienced
many communal occur-
rences that left their mark
on the subsequent genera-
tions. One of them included
his having been a sufferer
from anti-Semitism injected
into politics.
In his many years of
notable contributions in
public life, Charles Rubiner
could well be considered a
pioneering activist. He was
one of the founders of the
Detroit Round Table of the
National Council of Chris-
tians and Jews. As president
of Congregation Shaarey
Zedek, he led in formulating
adult studies and increasing
interest in Jewish cultural
commitments.
While in Lansing as assis-
tant attorney general, he
enrolled Governor Wilber
Bruckner into supporting
Zionism among Christians.
He interested Gov. Bruckner
in participating in the
welcome to Michigan of
Menahem Ussishkin, the
world president of Keren
Kayemet Le Israel - Jewish
National Fund, on a visit
here from Jerusalem. The
governor appointed me
chairman of a special
welcoming committee. Serv-
ing with me were Fred
Butzel, Bernard Isaacs, then
superintendent of the
United Hebrew Schools, and
Aaron Kurland, then presi-
dent of the JNF of Detroit.
The formal reception was
hosted in the mayoral office
of Frank Murphy Jan. 16,
1931.

pile of bricks in a matter of 13
seconds by 200 pounds of
dynamite Feb. 16. It was the
end of Webster Hall which
became the Wayne State
University Mackenzie Hall in
1961.
Both titles of the demolish-
ed structure will be retained
in unforgettable memories by

this community's leaders,
academic and functionary, in
Detroit's important activities.
It began as a 770-room hotel
for men and it later became
available for residential hous-
ing for women. When it was
bought by Wayne University
in 1945, it was turned into
dormitories for its students.

During its functioning as
Webster Hall it acquired

tivities of many of our

who resided there. This
