JNF Issues Tree
Certificates in
Honor of Fathers

The Jewish National Fund
will again issue tree certificates
in honor of father on Father's
Day, to be observed this year
on Sunday, June 19.
Certificates for trees planted
in the Freedom Forest in Is-
rael, at $2 each, can now be
ordered from the Jewish Na-
tional Fund office, UN 4-2767,
or through JNF tree chairmen
of affiliated organizations.
In an appeal to organizations
and individuals in the com-
munity, Prof. Samuel M. Levin,
JNF president, stated: "The
Jewish National Fund recom-
mends one of the most dignified
forms of honoring father on
his day—the planting of trees
in Israel in his name. Let trees
in Israel honor, or memorialize
your father. Let trees link your
father's name with the living,
productive soil of Israel."
Prof. Levin concluded his
appeal by pointing out that "the
tree certificate will provide an
inner satisfaction to both the
recipient and the sender. For,
this planting of trees also helps
in the afforestation of the land
which is so vitally important
to the reclamation of Israel's
The JNF office, 18414 Wyo-
ming, will be open Sunday,
June 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.,

The merger of Ceresnie
Brothers Furs, 19386 Livernois,
and Furs by Offen, 13326 Dex-
ter, has been announced by the
principals of the two firms,
Harry and Sol Ceresnie and
Sam Offen.
In a statement, the three fur-
riers said that the new firm,
to be known as Ceresnie
Brothers and Offen Furs, will
remain at the Livernois address.
Further expansion is contem-
pkted next month, when a new
store is opened at 536 N. Wood-
ward in Birmingham. Offen and
Sol Ceresnie will operate the
Livernois store, while Harry
Ceresnie manages the Birming-
ham shop.
Offen, who is continuing op-
erations at his Dexter store
until July 1, when the merger
will take effect, is currently
conducting a removal sale, with
intentions to liquidate all pres-
ent stock.
Included in the sale are mink
coats, jackets and stoles, other
fur pieces and fur-trimmed cash-
mere sweaters. The store is open
daily to 6 p.m. and until 9 p.m.,
Thursdays to accommodate late
The merger will bring the
three furriers together for a
second time. Offen worked for
the Ceresnie Brothers prior to
opening his own shop.
The Ceresnie Brothers have
been in the fur business here
for 14 years, having come here
from Toronto, where they or-
ganized a thriving business.
Offen, an escapee from Nazism,
came to this country in 1951,
and worked for the Ceresnies
in their Dexter store.
Before coming here, he was
a furrier in Poland before the
war, and afterward worked in
fur salons in Paris and London.
Offen has had his own store for
seven years on Dexter.
The merger, according to the
three furriers, will provide a
larger, more luxurious selection
of fur pieces of all descriptions
to their customers.
