The rabbi described Can-
tor Adler as a man of piety,
charm and talent who never
forgot a name or face. "He
was a gentle soul who
returned to God, who loves
him," he said.
Born in Jerusalem,
Hyman Adler was a child
prodigy from a long line of
chazzanim. By the time he
was 10, he was performing
with the great cantors from
Europe and America.
At his father's urging,
Cantor Adler came when he
was 17 to the United States.
He worked in Maryland,
Ohio and New York, where
he met his wife, Ruth, with
whom he would have
celebrated his 57th anniver-
sary last Monday.
In 1948, Cantor Adler
began serving at B'nai
David, then located on
Elmhurst in Detroit. He
worked with three rabbis,
most recently Morton

service, Rabbi Yolkut re-

It was the summer of 1977,
and Cantor Adler was about
to go on vacation. That's
when Morton Yolkut came
on board at B'nai David. The
cantor quickly cancelled his
plans, in order to show the
new rabbi around town.
"Cantor Adler, I shall
never forget your concern; I
shall never forget your assis-
tance; I shall never forget
your special kindness at that
time," Rabbi Yolkut said.
Chazzan Adler was ac-
corded numerous honors in
his lifetime. He was national
honorary cantor for the Jew-
ish War Veterans, Israel
Bonds Man of the Year in
1970 and received the Shofar
Award. He also was honored
by the Boy Scouts of
America and served as ad-
visor to the B'nai David Boy
Scout troop and as a
chaplain at the State Correc-
tional Facility in Jackson.
Though he performed
before large crowds at the
local cantorial concerts,
Chazzan Adler was equally
at home with small groups
at nursing homes.
"If you called him, he
would come," Rabbi Yolkut
said. "He loved people. Peo-
ple loved him. Period. That's
all that has to be said."
An avid stamp and coin
collector, Cantor Adler en-
joyed traveling and fishing.
He would often take a com-
panion along with the lures
and the bait, then sing as the
