Rabbi Leon Fram (12 Dec 1895 - 24 Mar 1987), born in Raseinas, Lithuania, was a Reform movement rabbi in the United States. Hed grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and was ordained at HUC (Cincinnati) in 1920. His career began at Temple Judea in Chicago before he was invited to Temple Beth El in Detroit (initially as assistant to Rabbi Leo Franklin) in 1925. In 1941, he founded his own synagogue, Temple Beth Israel. He was an outspoken against antisemitism during the rise of fascism in North America in the 1930s, and helped to promote Zionism in the Reform movement.
