Resolution Honoring Rabbi George Zepin

RABBI LEIPZIGER: When the 37th Council of the Union of the American Hebrew Congregation shall be seen in perspective, it will appear as a session of earnest self examination and honest self-criticism; a session giving new direction to the Union's hopes, a bolder vision of its goal.

Yet, it is only from measurable achievements that higher hopes do spring and it is only from accomplished tasks that new directions can be channeled.

Thus, the towering realities which rises above the debate and hopeful planning of this Council, is the record of the Union's achievements as outlined by its devoted President in his message to this Council in its hour of crisis.

These achievements were the frutiage of the loyal service of many men, but among them, none bore more clearly the responsibility of the tasks, and earns, therefore, more certainly the guerdon of praise for achievement than he, who for well nigh thirty-five years, has, in calm waters and troubled, been at the helm - the Union's esteemed Executive Director.
