M. Ben Lewis Marks 70th Birthday
in Israel with Gifts for Forest
Through JNF and Baby Day Nursery

Mr. and Mrs. Ben Lewis
JERUSALEM, Israel — Here
as head of the Detroit delega-
tion to the annual convention
of the Zionist Organization of
America, Morris Ben Lewis,
vice president of the Zionist
Organization of Detroit, in
celebration of his 70th birthday,
announced two noteworthy gifts
—one for the establishment of
a Baby Day Nursery, a project
he and Mrs. Lewis have under-
taken through Menachem Por-
ush, Mizrachi member of the
Knesset and a leader in the
Israel National Religious Party;
and the establishment of a
Lewis F6rest in Israel through
the Jewish National Fund.
The latter gift, for the
planting of a forest of 10,000
trees, is in behalf of himself
and his wife and his sisters,
Rose Lewis, Jeanette Lewis
and Norma Hudosh.
Mr. Lewis has been a leader
in the ZOD for many years and
has been active in many Zionist
and congregational affairs in
Detroit.
Born in Kalvarie, Lithuania,
he came to the United States
and first settled in Arkansas.
From there he went to Caro,
Ill., and enlisted in the U.S.
Army during World' War I. He
was honorably discharged as
a First Sergeant.
Coming to Detroit in 1919,
he established the U.S. Loan
Office and later the Lewis Loan
Office which he operated for
41 years on Gratiot Avenue.
His loan office now is operated
by himself and his son, Morton
H., at 1241 Broadway.
Mr. and Mrs. Lewis reside
at 19501- Robson. Besides their
son they have a daughter, Mrs.
Robert G. (Bryna) Frank, and
five grandchildren.
Mrs. Lewis is the former Ida
F. Dan. They were married on
May 28, 1929.
Upon his arrival in the
United States, Mr. Lewis
brought to this country his
mother, a brother and two sis-
ters.
His interests have remained
varied and included every facet
of Jewish life. For 30 years a
member of Congregation
Shaarey Zedek, he also is af-
filiated with Congregation Aha-
vas Achim and serves as a mem-



I WHY WORRY !

Leave Everything to Us

ber of the latter's board of
directors.
Long active in Allied Jewish
Campaigns, his Zionist activi-
ties have placed him in posi-
tions of leadership in behalf
of Kfar Silver in Israel, the
annual Balfour concerts and
many other Israeli and Zionist
causes — Bar-Ilan University,
Weizmann Institute, Technion
and Hebrew University. He is
a life member of the Zionist
Organization of America.
In behalf of the Zionist
Organization, and the syna-
gogues with which he is af-
filiated, he has played a lead-
ing role in the Israel Bond
drives.
He is actively affiliated in
efforts to spur the work of
Hillel Day Schoo 1, Jewish
Theological Seminary, Yeshiva
University, Bnai Brith, Mesifta
Torah voda'ath, City of Hope
and the Chabad Gan Israel
movement.
Like her husband, Mrs. Lewis
is active in Allied Jewish Cam-
paign and Israel Bond work,
also is a life member of the
Zionist Organization and is de-
votedly working in Hadassah,
Jewish National Fund, Pioneer
Women, Home for A g e d,
Shaarey Zedek Sisterhood,
United Hebrew Schools and
Bar-Ilan, being a life member
of the latter.
The Lewis sisters who are
joining in the planting of the
JNF Forest in Israel are equally
devoted to Israel, are active in
Allied Jewish Campaigns, Israel
Bond drives, Kfar Silver, Ha-
dassah, Zionist Organization and
numerous local and national
movements which include: Hil-
lel Day School, Yeshivah Uni-
versity, Jewish National Fund,
Hias, Yeshivath Beth Yehudah,
ORT, 'B r a n d e i s University,
United Hebrew Schools
Pioneer Women, Bnai Brith,
American Jewish Congress, Eu-
ropean Jewish Women's Welfare
Organization, Ponivezher Yeshi-
va, Bar-Ilan University, City of
Hope, National Council of Jew-
ish Women.
The Lewis' children are shar-
ing with their parents and aunts
the task of forest-planting and
the other generous gifts for Is-
rael and for American Jewish
causes. Morton Lewis is active
in Bnai Brith and is affiliated
with a number of local move-
ments. The Robert -Franks are
active in the youth activities
of Shaarey Zedek and other
movements.
Miss Rose Lewis accompanied
her brother and sister-in-law to
Israel as a ZOD delegate to the
ZOA convention which opened
this week. It is expected that
they will participate in the
planting of the first trees in
the Lewis JNF Forest during
their stay in Israel.
Other Detroiters with them
as delegates to the ZOA con-
vention here are: Mr. and Mrs.
Louis Panush, and daughter,
Naomi Sharon; Dr. and Mrs.
Paul Pensler, and Mr. and Mrs.
Ezekiel Leikin and Mr. and Mrs.
Samuel Yura.
