With profound regret, we mourn the loss of one of the

Detroit Jewish community's great patrons. Emery joined

the Board of Hebrew Free Loan in 1974 and served as its

President from 1986-1988. He continued his involvement

decades beyond his term, raising funds and actively

supporting the agency across our community. Over the

years, Emery's energy, leadership and deep connection to

HFL helped advance the mission to help local Jews in need.

The Board and staff of Hebrew Free Loan offer wishes of

comfort and heartfelt condolences to the Klein family.
