Max Michelson, 92, passed away peacefully on August 10, 2017. Michelson and his wife Julia were instrumental in founding Jewish Family Service of Metrowest (Mass.), one of HIAS’ local resettlement partners, where he served as president and on the board for many years. The following blog post is adapted from remarks delivered by current JFS CEO Marc Jacobs at Max’s memorial service at Temple Beth Am on August 13, 2017.
