directions in Jewish
education or programs to
address the needs of the
elderly, Conrad Giles has
provided leadership and
insight into the issues that
concern our Jewish
community.

For his involvement
and commitment to the
Jewish People, Dr. Giles
has been selected as this
year's recipient of the
coveted Butzel Award,
named for a man who
personified compassion
and service to the under-
privileged of Detroit.

The former president of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan
Detroit has filled many roles and responsibilities on the national
and state scene, as well as in his home community. He is a vice-
president of the Council of Jewish Federations and a vice chairman of
the United Jewish Appeal. His leadership of the Michigan Jewish
Conference has enabled that body to bring outstate Jewish communi-
ties together to explore and promote common interests.

As chairman of the Jewish Education Planning Committee,
Dr. Giles led in the development of a blueprint for delivering educa-
tion to the youth of our community. He also played key roles in the
development of the Task Force on Services to the Non-Institutional-
ized Elderly, the Jewish Population Study and the Task Force on
Services for Persons with Disabilities.

An ophthalmologist specializing in the treatment of children,
Dr. Giles was instrumental in the creation of the Michigan-Israel
Cornea Connection, a program in which Michigan donors supply
corneas for transplant in Israel.

Among his other affiliations are Jewish Family Service, Fresh Air
Society, United Jewish Foundation, Sinai Hospital and Detroit Men's
ORT. Dr. Giles co-chaired the Michigan Miracle Mission to Israel and has
worked actively on behalf of the Allied Jewish Campaign.
