Of great importance also in the
present campaign is the educa-
tional appeal. Had it not been for
the relief items in the campaign
budget, the work of the United
Hebrew Schools would rank first
among the causes pleading for De-'
troit Jewry's co-operation and fi-
nancial support. Education is the
major problem of our people. The
holy tradition of scholarship and
Torah, which has, throughout the
generations, defied whatever may
have threatened to undermine the
existence of the Jewish people,
has weakened to a point demand-
ing that Jewry awake to its re-
sponsibilities. In the Jewish

schools lies salvation for the
Jewish soul and in Jewish educa-
tion we have the most powerful
weapon for Jewish survival.
Without our Hebrew schools this
community would be a very poor
place to live in.
Thus we find unity of purpose in
the worthiest causes in Jewry re-
presented in one communal ap-
peal. And of unusual interest in
this united communal front is the
tradition established in the past
three years that he who does no
work for or contribute to the Al-
lied Jewish Campaign "does not
belong." That is the right
punishment. He who refuses to

share in the community's respon-
sibilities has no place in the life of
the community, whether it be so-
cial or economic or spiritual. We
are tempted to add — political.
But we have confidence that the
unity created in Detroit Jewry
will be further cemented by the
success of the present campaign.
An appeal as urgent as the pre-
sent cannot fail. And worthy Jews
will not write themselves out of
the community by their refusal to
contribute to the worthiest
Jewish causes and institutions.
We are confident that the benovo-
lence of Detroit Jewry will again
triumph in this campaign.

Jeremy Levin's Fame As Jewish Legacy

Jeremy Levin, CNN cable news
representative in Beirut, who es-
caped from the Islamic Jihad who
held him hostage since last
March, gained sensational fame
in last week's world news. The
story of his escape will be retold
many times..
He also possesses an important
legacy in the Metropolitan De-
troit Jewish community as the
grandson of Rabbi Judah L. Le-
vin.
Jeremy's grandsire was among
the most eminent in the rabbinic

Jeremy's uncle Isidore, who was
a captain in the U.S. Army during
World War I, was on the consult-
ing staff of Felix Frankfurter at
the Versailles Peace Conference
when the question of Palestine as
a pledged Jewish National Home
in British foreign policies was
under consideration. He had a
hand in the deliberations con-
ducted with King Feisal of Arabia
by Frankfurter and Chaim Weiz-
mann.
Another of Jeremy's uncles,
Prof. Samuel L. Levin, was head
of the department of Economics at
Wayne State University and an
author of many essays on econom-
ics and world affairs. Prof. Levin,
like many members of the Levin
family continuing to this day,
served as•president of the Jewish
Social Service Bureau and the
Jewish National Fund.

An interesting episode imbed-
ded in automobile history adds to
the fame of Rabbi Judah Levin. It
was in the earliest years of this
century that a chief official of the
Dodge Motor Co. asked him the

significance of the Magen David
and the Blue and White colors.
The eminent rabbi said they stood
for honesty, integrity, dedication
to public service and dignity.
"That's fine for us," said the
Dodge magnate. Thereafter, for
many years, the caps of the front
of all Dodge cars imitated the
Magen David and were in blue
and white.
Another important member of
the Levin family is the activist
Judy Cantor. On Wednesday
morning, she accepted several
gifts from Detroiters at the Dear-
born Hyatt Regency in behalf of
her cousin Jeremy Levin. Judy
has a major role currently as asso-
ciate archivist for Shaarey Zedek.
She is a leader in many local
Jewish community and civic
movements. Her husband, Ber-
nard Levin, has an important role
in the Detroit Chapter of the
American Society for Technion in
Israel.
Such are the legacies of an es-
capee from Islamic Jihad captiv-
ity who now adds global fame to a
family name.

pioneering personalities. When
Rabbi Abraham M. Hershman
came here to become the spiritual
leader of Cong. Shaarey Zedek in
the first decade of the 20th Cen-
tury, Rabbi Levin, already recog-
nized among the most revered
American rabbis, shared the pul-
pit with him as Yiddish ser-
monizer. He was generally re-
ferred to as Detroit's Chief Rabbi,
and the title was of course as
leader of the Conservative and
Orthodox elements.
Jeremy's father, Abraham Le-
vin, did a great deal of inventing
after retiring from Butzel, Butzel,
Levin and Winston, the firm that
was headed by Henry Butzel, Fred
M. Butzel, and his brother, Isidore
Levin. Abraham continues to take
pride in his work as an inventor.
Jeremy's mother was from a fam-
ily of noted university professors.
