as Zionist basis, the services
of Cantor Hyman Adler are
being included in the
chronicle of achievements
noted at the dinner honor-
ing him last night on the oc-
casion of his retirement
from Cong. Bnai David.
Visitors in Israel, when
viewing the early years of
statehood shown on the sc-
reen, have reported his hav-
ing been selected in the
pioneering role in Detroit
when he blew the Shofar at
the great assembly on the
Central High School
grounds on Linwood on May
5, 1948. It was part of his
continuing Zionist in-
volvements and services in
behalf of Israel.

Noteworthy recognition
is given Cantor Adler's de-
votion to efforts to
strengthen friendliest ties
with the non-Jewish com-
munities, especially in the
activities in behalf of the
Detroit Round Table of the
National Conference of
Christians and Jews.
Last night's dinner
marked Cantor Adler's re-
tirement after 38 years with
Bnai David. Synagogue
president Jerome Soble
sculpted a life-size bust of
the cantor.
Cantor Adler was born in
Jerusalem in 1911 to a fam-
ily of cantors. He came to
America at the insistence of
his father, and served as a
cantor in several


synagogues in the east as a
youngster. He came to Bnai
David after serving as can-
tor in an Orthodox syna-
gogue in Cleveland.
He has been active with
the Jewish War Veterans,
Mosaic Lodge, Hebrew Be-
nevolent Society, Jewish
Home for Aged, League of
Jewish Women's Organiza-
tions, Hannah Schloss Old
Timers and the Cultural
Group of the Jewish Com-
munity Center.
He was the recipient of
the 1967 Shofar Award of
the Jewish Boy Scouts
Committee of Metropolitan
Detroit. He has been cited
by the NCCJ and appeared
in a musical, liturgical pro-
gram at Duns Scotus
Catholic Seminary in

IJA Report
Examines UN
Racism Parley

LONDON — The second
World Conference on Ra-
cism, which marked the
closing of the United Na-
tions Decade Against Ra-
cism, was racked by dissen-
sion and the lack of a con-
sensus on Israel, according
to a study published by the
Institute of Jewish Affairs
(IJA) earlier this month.
The IJA study, authored
by Dr. Stephen J. Roth, of-
fers an in-depth look at the
UN Decade Against Ra-
cism, which began in 1973.
The report explains that Is-
rael and the United States
boycotted both of the world
conferences and that West-
ern delegates who did
attend made their opposi-
tion to the anti-Israel line
very clear.
The IJA is the research
arm of the World Jewish
