Jewish National Fund of Detroit Undert a kes 3-Year

Drive- for -$500,000 to Re-Build 2 Israeli Villages

The Jewish National Fund of
Detroit will undertake a $500,000
fund-raising campaign for the re-
development of two Israeli vil-
lages destroyed in that country's
War-of Liberation- in 1948.
A resolution to sponsor the
project was adopted at the an-
nual conference of the Jewish
National Fund (JNF) held Sun-
day at the Jewish Center.
The endeavor is to be Detroit

Israel's 12 - point. Development
Program, slated for completion
in 25 years at a cost of $250,-
The villages of Gadot and
Mishmar Hayarden are ex-
pected to be re-built through
the efforts of Detroit JNF by
the end of 1965. Both settle-
ments are
located on the
banks of the Jordan River at
the Israeli-Syrian border.
The Women's Auxiliary of
JNF has announced responsibil-
ity for the development of Gadot,
according to Mrs. Edward Wish-
netsky, Women's Auxiliary presi-
dent, and will seek to raise
$150,000 as its quota of the total
goal for that i surpose.
The project announced Sunday
marks the first time that Detroit
Jewry, through JNF, will be
solely identified with underwrit- -
ing such a program for a specific
area. •
It is to be Detroit's singu-
lar contribution to Israel's fu-
ture security, according to
Morris J. Brandwine, president
of the Jewish National Fund
of Detroit.
The purpose of the project,
he said, is to establish Gadot
and Mishmar Hayarden as thriv-
ing communities in agriculture
and commerce.
Funds raised by Detroit JNF
will be used to revitalize the
natural resources of those com-
munities to ensure their pro-
ductivity, Brandywine said.
"Funds will be used also to

of local government facilities,
commercial installations and
homes for the populace," he
added. "The rebirth requires a
total construction effort because
both villages were completely
razed by Arab forces during
the war."
Brandwine explained that
the establishment of such set-
tlements -is necessary for the
absorption of Israel's bur-
geoning population, due to
mass immigration from up-
rooted Jewish communities in
the world, and for the eco-
namic and defense security
of the young nation.

Guest speaker at Sunday's
JNF conference was Rabbi
Charles E. Shulman of New
York City, author, lecturer and
spiritual leader of Riverdale
Temple in New York. Presid-
ing was Nathaniel H. Goldstick,
former Corporation Counsel for
the City of Detroit. Co-chair-
man was Irving W. Schlussel,
who offered the resolution for
the project in Israel.
The morning conference also
heard presentations on four ma-
jor areas of JNF activity, fol-
lowing greetings from James I.
Ellman of the Jewish Com-
munity Council of Metropoli-
tan Detroit.
William Hordes spoke of
the Foundation for the Jew-
ish National Fund. Hordes is
Michigan region chairman of
the Foundation. He stressed
the importance of perpetuat-
ing the work of JNF for land
ownership by the people of
Israel to serve as a bastion
for peace. A bequest to the
JNF Foundation, he said, -
serves both to perpetuate the
efforts of JNF and the mem-
ory of the donor. Such a deed
is a means of ensuring im-
mortality, he said.
Hordes cited the above rea-
sons for regarding the Jewish
National Fund Foundation also
as a "beloved child" to be re,
membered in a. will. It was in
this spirit that he presented a
plaque of commendation to the
family of the late Aaron Rosen-
berg as a tribute to his memory
for his devotion to JNF.
I. M. Biderman, national, di-
rector of the JNF Youth and
Education Department, said
that the sanctity of the Sabbath
has been desecrated as well as
kashruth and that Jewish reli-
gion is no longer the unifying
force in Jewis hlife. Even Yid-
dish is no longer a common
tongue of understanding and
Hebrew yet aspires to be among
all Jews, he said.
• "The Jewish peoples of the
world are only remnants," he
said. "A great Jewish tribe
must result. To renew the to-
tality of Israel as The Jewish
People and the Diaspora as
an extention of it, we must
educate our youth that Israel
is the focal point, the central
force for unity of Jewry.
"Israel should not be con-
sidered the Jewish State for its
citizens alone, but the home of
all the Jews of the world. This
is our task in the classroom—
to imbue this spirit in our
Mrs. William Levin, Blue-
White Box co-chairman for the
Women's Auxiliary, spoke on
the symbols of the JNF. The
Blue - White Boxes, she said,
help to teach the young people

"to have an enduring interest
and deep attachment to Israel."
As for trees, the mark of JNF,
she said that afforestation re-
mains to be the solution to
eroded land in Israel, three-
fourths of which is parched
Harry Kaminer, chairman of
the Committee for Organiza-
tions, spoke in Yiddish on "Or-
ganizations for the Jewish Na-
tional Fund." •
The morning session was at-
tended by more than 400 JNF
delegates. They were joined in
the afternoon by some 500
others for the Michigan Jewish
Educators' Conference, spon-
sored by the Directors' Coun-
cil of Jewish Religious Schools
of Metropolitan Detroit and the
JNF Youth and Education Com-
