Novick
described
Slomovitz as a "reporter,
editor, publisher, political
analyst and community
leader, and journalist par
excellence." He added that
the Slomovitzes would "al-
ways stand up and be
counted for Zionism and
would maintain the vital
link of Zionist commitment
in Detroit."
Novick asserted that
Slomovitz represented the
spirit of Brandeis "by per-
sonal example."
Slomovitz has held var-
ious positions in the ZOA.
He currently serves as an
honorary vice president of
the ZQA.
"Phil •
Slomovitz
epitomizes the ideals of
Brandeis who was commit-
ted to Zionism, Israel,
America and the rights and
dignity of men and women
of good will throughout the
world," said Mr. Novick.
Past recipients of the
Brandeis Award include
Abba Eban, George Meany,
William Randolph Hearst,
Jr, Bayard Rustin,
Elizabeth Taylor and New
York State Attorney Gen-
eral Robert Abrams, among
other distinguished person-
ages.
In responding to the
Brandeis Award, Slomovitz
said that his Zionist credo
was that "for the sake of
Zion, never be silent," as
well as, "have no fear." He
called on those present "to
work for justice for . our
people."
"Make certain," he told
the large audience of ZOA
delegates and , friends
gathered for the luncheon
honoring him that "no de-
structive elements remain
at our back." He called for
unity and action for Israel.
Also noting Slomovitz'
dedication to the Jewish
community and to Zionism
was Max Fisher. He called
for unity in the American
Jewish community and said
that American Jews would
again be called on to stand
by Israel and help her in
these difficult days.

"Similarly, we see in Phil
