Commitment

Continued from preceding page

I've known her I can't remember
not seeing a smile on her
face." Rabbi Charles
Rosenzveig, who directs De-
troit's Holocaust Memorial Cen-
ter, claims "Larry has two es-
sential characteristics for a
leader of any communal organ-
ization. He has a very deep-
rooted commitment to things he
believes in. And no matter how
busy he is, once he undertakes a
commitment, he always carries
it to fruition."
A more succinct reason for the
couple's multifaceted round of
activities is offered by Shelly
Tauber, past president of Jewish
Welfare Federation's Women's
Division.
"The Jackiers have beautiful
values," she says. "They share,
besides deep love for each other,
a very fundamental, abiding
commitment to the perpetuation
of Judaism."
That priority, plus genunine
respect for each other's indi-
vidual pursuits, explains the
Jackiers' acceptance of their fre-
quent separations and their
daily balancing acts between
family, professions and com-
munal activities.
In the last 11 years of their
20-year, marriage, they have
made a combined total of 40 vis-
its to Israel, as well as trips to

the Soviet Union and other loca-
tions. Larry journeyed twice to
Prague in 1984 and participated
in a 1982 factfinding mission to
Ethiopia with representatives of
other national Jewish oragniza-
tions.
It's a travel record neither
spouse would have predicted in
the early years of their mar-
riage, or during their school
years. While both were always
outstanding achievers —
scholastically and athletically —
Jewish communal participation
was not one of their aspirations.
Larry was the beneficiary of a
home where Jewish and
humanitarian causes had al-
ways been foremost in his par-
ents' efforts. This year, Edythe
and Joseph Jackier were the re-
cipients of the Jewish Welfare
Federation's Fred M. Butzel
Memorial Award, for their more
than 50 years of distinguished
service to the Jewish and gen-
eral communities. They were
the first husband and wife to be
jointly honored.
"As a youngster," remembers
Edythe Jackier, "Larry was in-
terested in everything around
him. He always had a fantastic
ability to concentrate, and to ac-
complish a great deal in a short
time."
