distinguished leadership and
achievement in the board's areas
of service.
The recipients of the awards,
chosen by a panel of notable
Americans headed by Justice

York State Court of Appeals,
were: Rabbi Max D. Davidson
of Perth Amboy, N.J.; Dr. Harry

Hebrew literature and philoso-

Charles Aaron, a former presi-

Israel.
Visitors who drew special
notice here last week included
Jacob Blaustein of Baltimore,
former president of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee, who
met with Ben-Gurion to discuss
with him his attitude toward
Aliyah and American Jewry. A
Blaustein-Ben-Gurion agreement
had been reached about ten
years ago to avoid conflict be-
tween the two Jewries regard-
ing the settlement of American
Jews in Israel. The current con-
ferences are believed to be re-
lated to Blaustein's concern
that the early agreement for
amity should not be invalidated.
Also in Israel during the past
three weeks was Albert Elazar,
superintendent of the United
Hebrew SchOols of Detroit, who
came to Israel to interview
prospective applicants for teach-
ing posts in the Midrasha and
the UHS Hebrew High School,
under the teachers exchange
program encouraged by both the
U.S. and Israel governments.

urged by Senator Kenneth B.
Keating, of New York, to take
more "vigorous initiative" to end
the Arab econo m i c warfare
against Israel and to bring about
a settlement of the Arab-Israel
conflict. The Senator spoke at
the '75th anniversary celebration
of Temple Israel here.
"It behooves the United S St • s
above all, as the leader o
he
free peoples of the wo , to
press more vigorously f f nego-
tiation and settlemen of the
problems of the Mid • East,"
he said. "In general t

no action taken to stop block-

all American citizens, to

Keating warned.

Gazit Thanks U.S. Jewry at Detroit's
Celebration of Isr ad.'s Statehood

By CHARLOTTE HYAMS
A "debt of honor" was paid
to the Jewish communities of
the United States by an Israeli
envoy at Detroit's 13th anni-
versary celebration of the State
of Israel Sunday evening in the
Mumford High School auditor-
ium.
Mordecai Gazit, Envoy Extra-
ordinary and Minister Plenipo-
tentiary at the Israel Embas
in Washington, D.C., told
audience that without
eir
help, and that of the
wish
communities through
the
free world, Israel's
o-fold
task, "rebuilding a
ple and
rebuilding a land," 'uld have
been "impossible." Thus, to-
night I pay a debt
honor on
behalf of the Stat
f Israel."
"Long after the d
atic per-
iod of our foundin,, 's over,
there will be spiritual
cul-
tural interaction betwee
United States and Israel," he
predicted.
"Our childhood in Israel is
over, and we are a strong,
resolute plant ... with strong
roots." But, he added, "we
have a long way to climb."
Gazit cited the progress in
Israel, including the settling
of 1,000,000 Jews in the past
13 years, the pioneering in in-
dustry and exploitation of nat-
ural resources.
Gazit was introduced by Mor-
ris Lieberman, chairman of the
Zionist Council of Detroit, who
suggested that President Ken-
nedy "implement the objective
of peace by bringing Israelis
and Arabs together" to discuss
the future of the Middle East.
The 14 members of the

Kinneret Company, a group of
Israeli singers and dancers, took
part in Joseph Edelman's "Bar-
Mitzvah of a Nation," narrated
by radio and television person-
ality Harry Goldstein. Neil Zech-
