Between You
. . . and Me'

Editor-in-Chief
Emeritus, JTA'

(Copyright 1981, JTA, Inc.)
AN IDEAL EDITOR: Congratulations to my dear

friend and colleague Philip Slomovitz, editor of The Jewish
News in Detroit, on the occasion of the decision of Bar-Ilan
University to confer upon him an honorary doctorate in
recognition for his record of service to the Jewish people
and the Jewish heritage.
Phil, as he is affectionately called by his many friends,
illy deserves this honor. He is the most recognized editor
n the field of English-Jewish weekly publications in this
country. He enjoys the admiration of his own community
and high respect of national Jewish organizations. He is
venerated by leaders of the American Zionist movement to
which he is very dedicated, and he is regarded with high
esteem by the Israel government.
Recognition of the American Jewish community was
given to him by selecting him as the first recipient of the
Smolar Award for Excellence in North American Jewish
Journalism which was established in 1972 by the Council of
Jewish Federations. Phil was also the recipient last month
of the Golda Meir Award presented by the American
Jewish Press Association.
I always admired Phil for his many qualities in the
field of journalism which brought fame to him and his
newspaper. His qualities, as I see them, are:
• He is erudite in Jewish knowledge.
• He is deeply devoted to all Jewish causes and
encourages all creative forces in American Jewry.
His newspaper provides excellent coverage of all
local communal events. He features with excellent judg-
ment national and international news reported by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency. He concentrates on covering
local organizational news from mere publicity into news of
a national character, thus putting his community on the
Jewish map nationally and even internationally.
• His editorials are written against a background of
solid knowledge of reported and "inside" news. They are
analytical, informative, far from pontificating; they stimu-
late thinking. He never seeks to make an impression that
he speaks on behalf of the Jewish people. Without saying
so, he makes it clear that the opinions expressed in the
editorials are personal. His own feature, "Purely Commen-
tary," as well as the features he carefully selects for inter-
preting the news contain significant observations.
• He takes a personal, active interest in various pro-
grams of his own community and of national organizations,
and enjoys the confidence of national Jewish leaders and of
leaders in Israel. He is, therefore, well informed on what is
going on "behind the scenes" in Jewish life.
• He pays special attention to Jewish cultural de-
velopments; his paper carries more reviews on books of
Jewish content and interest than any other English-Jewish
newspaper. He is a lover of Hebrew but also attentive to
problems and achievements in the field of Yiddish lan-
guage and literature.
• In his own community he is recognized not merely as
a most responsible editor who helps to build and develop the
community, but also as a person who is part-and-parcel of
the leadership of the community. He and his wife Anna are
known as generous givers to various Jewish causes in
which they are actively interested, including the commu-
nity campaign for local needs and the United Jewish Ap-
peal, the Jewish National Fund, Hadassah, and others.
AN IDEAL COMMUNITY: More and more could be
said about Phil. He is a great asset to the Detroit Jewish
community which lilas always distinguished itself on the
American Jewish scene.
The Detroit community has enriched American Jewry
not only with an exceptionally good newspaper but also
with outstanding national Jewish leaders. It produced a
Max Fisher who is today the "leader Number One" in
American Jewish life. It has given Jewry and Israel a
Philip Stollman, the modest and great Orthodox philan-
thropist who, in a quiet way, gives probably three times as
much of his income for charity than the 10 percent — the
"Maaser" — prescribed by the Bible, and who is the dynamo
of the Bar-Ilan University, sparing no efforts in time and in
funds to make the university what it is today and even
bigger. Detroit is also the home of Paul Zuckerman, who is
so busy with the United Jewish Appeal.
Its community-active U.S. Senator Carl Levin, plays
now a very important role in Washington. Detroit has pro-
duced such distinguished Jewish social workers as Morris
D. Waldman, Dr. John Slawson, Isidore Sobeloff, William
Avrunin. I am proud to be considered an "honorary
member" of the Detroit community.
AN EDITOR AT 70: Speaking of honored Jewish
editors, the 70th birthday of Shimon Weber, editor of the
Jewish Daily Forward, the only Yiddish daily newspaper in
the United States — well known all over the world and
playing an important role in American Jewish life — was
celebrated in New York this week.
