Drachler Added To JN
Foundation Honorary Board
Sol Drachler, who served Detroit's Jewish
community in various leadership positions
over a 26-year period, was elected an honor-
ary director of the Detroit
Jewish News Foundation
at the Feb. 4 meeting of
the foundation's operating
board.
Drachler began his
Jewish communal career
in 1956 as secretary
of the Jewish Welfare
Sol Drachler
Federation's education
division. From there,
he rose through the professional ranks of
federation before becoming its executive
director in 1976. He held that position until
1982. In his honor, friends of Drachler
established the Sol Drachler Chair in Jewish
Communal Studies in 1998 at the University
of Michigan's School of Social Work.
In 1982 remarks honoring Drachler, com-
munity leader Max Fisher said the following
of him:
"In troubled years, when the burdens
carried by Israel and the Jewish people were
their heaviest, they always knew they could
rely on the people of Detroit to do their part.

It is no accident that this community has
the finest reputation in the country, both
for fundraising and organizational unity.
This enviable position was not created in a
vacuum: It took leadership and vision to cre-
ate. Sol Drachler has provided both, and he
has brought, additionally, the imagination
and skill to tap the best lay leadership this
community has to offer:'
The Detroit Jewish News Foundation is
an independent, 501-c-3 nonprofit entity
that supports the educational mission of the
Jewish News.

id you know that in July
1942 the Detroit Jewish News
announced that it would
begin to circulate a series of "funnies"
intended to bring the modern youth
closer to the Hebrew Bible? Introduced
by M. C. Gains, president of All-
American Comics Inc., these book
illustrations were created to appeal
to a generation brought up on visual

in not the 2000s, but the
1930s!
The belief was that a modern and
understandable medium should be
used to bring the youth closer to the
Scriptures. Sponsored by the Jewish
Education Committee of New York and
the Synagogue Council of America; The
Story of Ruth debuted in The Bible in
Comics strip on Sept. 18, 1942. ❑
