Archbishop Sheil
'Man of the Year

CHICAGO, (JTA) β€” The
board of governors of the Chi-
cago committee for Israel
Bonds, unanimously voted the
Most Rev. Bernard J. Sheil,
Roman Catholic Archbishop of
Chicago, as the "Man of the
Year" to be honored by the
Jewish community for his
leadership in humanitarian
causes and his ardent support
of the State of Israel.
This will be the first time
that a non-Jew and a high-
ranking Church leader will be
honored as "The Man of the
Year" by the Jews of Chicago.
Archbishop Sheil will be the
guest of honor at the "Man of
the Year" dinner which will
be held in Chicago on Nov. 7,
when more than 2,000 leaders
of the Jewish community and
outstanding civic and national
figures will join in paying trib-
ute to the church leader who
is revered by all faiths for his
outstanding achievements in
religious and communal affairs.
A long-time supporter of the
establishment of the State of
Israel, Archbishop Sheil has
closely identified himself with
the campaign for Israel bonds.

Israel bonds, but last winter
he took the initiative in invit-
ing Jewish and non-Jewish
leaders to a meeting at his
