A Tribute to a True Jewish American Communal Leader – Mr. Ernest Michel


As we mourn the loss of Ernie Michel, we also pause to honor his memory during Jewish American Heritage Month. With over six decades of dedicated service to the Jewish community, Ernie was a true Jewish American leader. In 1947, he joined the United Jewish Appeal, and was their executive vice president from 1970-1989, where he was instrumental in the merger that created the UJA-Federation of New York.
