Laikin Communally Acclaimed at 80

Family, friends and co-
workers in a score of major
Jewish movements will join
in honoring Benjamin M.
Laikin, at a dinner at the
Labor Zionist Institute,
Sunday evening, in advance
of his 80th birthday which
he will reach on New Year's
Day.
A leader in Labor Zion-
ism, a scholar who has writ-
ten autobiographical works
in English and in Yiddish, a
linguist and a lover of Yid-
dish, Laikin gained national

recognition for the aid he
has given to cultural institu-
tions, to leading Jewish au-
thors and to Israeli causes.
As a former chairman of
the Jewish National Fund
and the former Zionist
Council, a leader in the Jew-
ish Community Council, a
volunteer in fund-raising as
well as an organizer of Zion-
ist groups, Laikin's leader-
ship made him an indispen-
sable participant in com-
munal tasks.
Born in Pobelov, a prov-
ince of Minsk, Russia, Mr.
Laikin came to Baltimore
at age 17. He settled in De-
troit in 1929 and was in the
wiping cloth business here
until 1960.
Since retiring, Mr. Laikin
has devoted time to writing
his memoirs, which were
published in Yiddish under
the title, "Memoirs of a
Practical Dreamer." His
book has since been pub-
lished in English.
Mr. Laikin has been asso-
ciated with Poale Zion
Branch 3 since coming to
Detroit. He is a member of
Cong. Shaarey Zedek.
A major interest of Mr.
Laikin's upon coming to
Detroit was the Farband
