L'" I Laud Hy Crystal at 10-Year Dinner; London's Hillel
I Mitchell Criticizes Jewish 'Vacuum' Director in Ann
"Mr. - Bnai Brith" was hon- of the Michigan Council; a boOk Arbor on Nov. 4
ored at a cocktail party and of congratulatory messages

banquet Sunday at Holiday
To help Hy Crystal celebrate
his 10th year as executive di-
rector of the Detroit Council
were local and national officials
of the large and influential
men's organization.
Guest speaker Philip H. Mit-
chell, vice president of the
Supreme Lodge, following a
tribute to Crystal — "He has
never set a • program; he has
set an example" — ,told the
audience of the tasks facing
Bnai Brith: unification of the
Jewish community, social ser-
vice, defense of Jewish life
against malice and misunder-
standing and spiritual survival
through Jewish education.
He decried the trend toward
"inverted Marranoes," whereby
"outwardly we're Jews but in-
wardly we're a vacuum." Such
people, he said, "don't know
what Judaism is, don't care
about it, don't want to know
about it. A generation of ig-
norance is a generation with-
out moral stamina," he said.
"We must help our people get
self knowledge . . . self appreci-
ation." He called Bnai Brith
"an instrument for the survival
of Judaism."
The Montreal-born Crystal,
cited for his "guidance and un-
canny thinking," his "work
over and above his duties," his
modesty and "fine example of
selflessness," and "consecrated
service to his fellow man," also
was paid tribute with several
gifts from local and national
BB groups.
He received a silver kiddush
eup from the Metropolitan De-
troit Women's Council, pre-
sented by Mrs. Sidney Eidel-
man, president; a certificate for
a garden of trees in the Bnai
Brith Martyrs' Forest in . Israel,
by Paul Liebert, past president

bound in leather, by Milton M.
Weinstein, past president of the
Detroit Council; an inscribed
silver platter and a Hagadah
illustrated by the noted artist
Szyk, presented by Harry Yud-
koff of the Board of Governors,
Supreme Lodge.
Two color portaits of Crystal
were presented to his mother,
Mrs. Anna Crystal, who was
brought here for the banquet
from her home in Calgary,
Alberta, Can.; and to his wife
and daughter, who also were
special guests.
Crystal, who made special
note of his days as gun runner
in Canada for the Israeli army
and his fight against Nazism
and Communism as a civilian
serving the Canadian armed
forces, said he was "proud to
be doing God's work here on
earth . . . But if I have any
ability at all I come by it from
my father and my mother." He
called this "a peculiar philoso-
phy of Jewish life."
