Noted Personalities Attest to the Magnetism of Israel

HERZLIA," Israel. — Noted
world personalities are among
Israel's most devoted friends
who are participating in major
industrial enterprises. The Rot-
schilds, the Bronfmans, the
Wolfsons, American, Swiss and
English notables are sharing in
the development of Israel's pro-
gressive undertakings.
Chief among them, although
always in the background, is a
modest Canadian — Bertram
Loeb. While Detroit investors
shared in the formation of the
eight S'upersol Supermarkets in
various parts of Israel, it was
primarily thanks to. Loeb's in-
genuity that the sensational
chain of food markets devel-
oped in Israel.
Loeb is an' interesting man.
He is an ordained rabbi, hav-
ing completed his studies at the
Jewish Theological Seminary in
New York. He is a graduate of
the Mikveh Israel agricultural
school in Israel and has several
other degrees.
Entering the food business in
Canada, Loeb succeeded in es-
tablishing scores of supermar-
kets, and the Israel supermar-
kets were patterned after his.
• *. •
Akin to Loeb is a dynamic
Detroiter — Joseph Holtzman.
Every spare moment of his re-
cent visit to Israel was devoted
to assisting in improving the
status of the Rock Products en-
terprise set by Detroiters of
which he is a part and which
now is linked into a joint effort
with Solel Boneh as the Israel
America Aggregates Ltd.

Holtzman, often joined by his
wife, Helen, visited all the Ag-
gregates installations, consulted
the engineers, encouraged them
in their work, advised where
and when necessary to assist in
improving a great stone crush-
ing undertaking that is now
bringing a handsome profit.
The Holtzmans were among
the most devoted members of
the latest UJA Mission—travel-
ling everywhere, joining with
their associates in studying con-
ditions and in discussing plans
for greater American Jewish
participation in activities in be-
half of Israel.
* * •
During their stay, with the
UJA Study Mission, at the Ac-
cadia Hotel, in Herzlia, the De-
troit members of the delegation
were pleased to have an oppor-
tunity to join the celebration
of Helen Holtzman's birthday.
There was a hearty L'Chayim
in which many friends from a
number of other cities partici-
pated.
• • •
A Detroit personality of emi-
nence in Israel is Max Lapides.
A former high ranking U. S.
army intelligence officer, Lapi-
des joined the staff of the Joint
Distribution Committee. He was
in charge of Opetation Magic
Carpet during which nearly all
of the Jews were removed from
Yemen and were settled in Is-
rael.
Lapides, who has become
known as one of the directorial
geniuses of rescue efforts,
works behind the scenes, and
unassumingly conducts activ-
ities for the emigration of Jews

from several ports, including
Aden.
* * *
Let credit go where credit is
due: in the ranks of the Israel
Bond Organization in Israel is
an American who has dedicated
himself to work for Israel. Al
Potashnick, a native Bostonian,
is tireless in his efforts as the
public relations director of the
Bond office. He knows every
nook and corner of Israel and
together with the eminent pho-
tographer, Efrem Ilani, has
been able to plan the most • ef-
fective research activities and
study missions among non-Jew-
ish bankers visiting Israel, Jew-
ish industrialists and others who
come to the Holy Land.

Potashnick is a dedicated
idealist. He is a strong adher-
ent to the principle that Israel
must' develop spiritually as well
as industtiously, and he labors
towards the advancement of
that idea. His wife, also a na-
tive Bostonian, and their three
daughters are a happy family in
Israel. They are among Amer-
ican Jewry's great gifts to Is-
rael.

Temple Israel Sisterhood Gives
Gentile Teachers Facts on Judaism

Members of the Sisterhood of
Temple Israel could look back
today on their 13th annual Insti-
tute on Judaism in the knowl-
edge that they had provided
nearly 500 student teachers
with positive information on
Jewish beliefs and practices.
Measured by the number of
children each future teacher
will instruct during the course
of an average teaching career,
thousands of non-Jewish chil-
dren will gain a better under-
standing of what Judaism
means. . Even more important,
however, is the fact that these
student teachers will be in a
better position to understand
the Jewish youngster they teach
in their classrooms.
The Institute was geared to
the theme of "Understanding
the Jewish Child," and was
planned under the direction of
Mrs. M. Robert Syme, chairman.
Student teachers and their
supervisors came from Mercy
College, Marygrove College, Uni-
versity of Detroit and Wayne
State University. There were
people from all religious back-
grounds, including many nuns
from the parochial colleges.
The group first viewed cere-
monial tables expressive of
each of the Jewish holidays. A
major source of interest was •a
display of books used in the
Temple Israel Religious and
Hebrew Schools.
Teachers were then hosted at
a luncheon tendered by the Sis-
terhood, after which they gath-
ered in five sessions devoted to
the over-all conference theme.
Dr. Leon Fram led a discus-
sion on "The Religious Heritage
of the Jewish Child;" Rabbi
Syme on "His Home;" Rabbi
Milton Rosenbaum on "His
Life's Pilgrimage — from the
Cradle to the Grave;" Rabbi
Ernst Conrad, Temple Beth
Jacob, Pontiac, on "His Holy
Days;" and Rabbi Sherwin Wine,
Temple Beth El, Windsor, on
"His Cultural Legacy."
At a general assembly, • at
which all of the teachers gath-
ered in the Sanctuary, they
were greeted by a welcome from
Mrs. George Victor, Sisterhood
president, and Mrs. Syme. A
question period then followed.
The appreciation of the teach-
ers and a plea for their under-
standing of all children of all
faiths was expressed by Dr.
Tibor Payzs, director of the
Center for Human Relations at
University of Detroit, and Sister
Mary Emil, president of Mary-
grove College.
Nearly 100 women from the
Temple Israel Sisterhood at-
tended eight weeks of special

briefing sessions to plan the
Institute.
Assisting Mrs. Syme in carry-
ing out the program were Mes-
dames Robert R. Lewiston, co-
chairman; Harold H. Gilbert,
ceremonial tables chairman; Sid-
ney Solomon, seminar chair-
man.; Ernest Golumbia, hostess
chairman; Albert Dicken, lun-
cheon chairman; Samuel Barr,
registration chairman; and the
Sisterhood Garden Club, chaired
by Mrs. Samuel Lappin.
