Bar-Ilan University Dinner Draws
Record Attendance; Local Efforts
Praised by Drs. Adler, Lookstein

Detroit Friends of Bar-Ilan
University scored a marked suc-
cess in their efforts in behalf
of the university in Ramat Gan,
Israel, at the annual dinner
held at Cabo Hall Wednesday
night. With 825 people in at-
tendance, the affair was the
most enthusiastic in the rnJve-
ment's history.
Phillip S t ollm a n, national
chairman of the American board
of trustees of the university,
announced that a number of
Detroiters had given generous
contributions to dedicate rooms
in the Detroit dormitory at the
Ramat Gan university.
The guest speaker, Dr. Jos- .
eph H, Lookstein, president
of the board of governors of
the university, told the gath-
ering that the Hershman
Chair in History, established
by the Detroit Jewish commu-
nity in memory of Dr. A. M.
Hershman, already has been
dedicated.
In an address in which he
commended the efforts of the
Friends of- Bar-Ilan University
to advance Jewish educational
activities, Rabbi Morris Adler
commended the project for the
Hershman Chair. He presented
plaque.3 to Tom and Al Borman,
who financed the lecture hall
at Bar-Han, and to Abe Kasle,

who financed a room at the uni-
versity, and announced other
large gifts to the school by De-
troit families.
Reviewing the crises that
were faced by world Jewry
throuhgout the centuries, Dr.
Lookstein, in a stirring address,
showed how the etablishrnent
of synagogues and schools kept
up the morale of the people and
assured survival in 'defiance of
the most damaging threats from
hostile neigfibors.
He pointed out that Juda-
ism was kept alive by the de-
termined Will of the people
to hold on to its spiritual
heritage.
Pointing to two glorious phe-
nomena—the emergence of the
great American Jewish commu-
nity and the establishment of
Israel—and to two tragedies—
the death of six million Jews
at the hands of the Nazis and
the cutting off of four million
Jews by Iron Curtains — Dr.
Lookstein appealed for the
strengthening of Jewish cul-
tural values in order that -the
indomitable and indestructible
Jewish spirit should triumph
anew.
He pointed t o the program
of Bar-Ilan University as one
of the major means of mak-
ing sue, efforts possible.
Dr. Lookstein was introduced
by Mrs. Max Stollman, national
chairman of American Women
for Bar-Ilan, who reported on
the splendid response from the
wome.i in the community in the
f,ormation of the women's div .
sion.
Tom Borman, dinner ch
man, delivered the opening
marks - and introduced Phi
Stolman as toastmaster. P
Zuckerman, chairman of
1961 Allied Jewish Campai,,
greeted the assembly. The
vocation and benediction were
given by Rabbi Hayim Donin.
Cantor Jacob H. Sonenklar led
in thesinging of the national
nthems.

Former Senator Herbert H.
Lehman "lauded President-elect
Kennedy for "dramatic action"
in quickly tackling the problem
of housing; "the practical key
to meaningful integration at all
other levels."
He said that the President-
elect "has moved directly to the
core and heart of the civil
rights struggle today" by the
appointment of Robert L.
Weaver as Federal Housing
Administrator .
