Abe Kasle, local and nation-
ally prominent Jewish leader
whose activities in behalf of the
United Jewish Appeal, Jewish
education and numerous causes
in behalf of Israel have placed
him in front ranks of leader-
ship, will be honored at a testi-
monial dinner at the Shaarey
Zedek on June 12, under the
sponsorship of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund.
The occasion will be the com-
pletion of the Abe Kasle Forest
in Israel.
Admission to the dinner, ac-
cording to Morris Brandwine,
president of the Detroit JNF
Council, will be by the planting
of 25 trees per couple.
The foundation for the
Kasle Forest in Israel was
created by Kasle himself, with
his $5,000 gift for that pur-
pose to the JNF, on the oc-
casion of his 65th birthday. It
was part of a $65,000 fund
that was distributed by him
among a number of Jewish
and civic causes.
Mr. and Mrs. Kasle were in
Israel in 1961 to plant the first
trees in their forest. Upon their
return from Israel, Kasle, de-
scribing his experiences, paid
this tribute to the JNF:
"When I was a young boy, and
that over 60 years ago. I re-
member that there were blue-
white boxes hanging on the wall
in our home. One of these boxes
was marked JNF—Jewish Na-
tional Fund — in Hebrew, of
course. As I was growing up in
Europe I noticed many of the
same boxes in other homes, and
I asked my parents what these
boxes were for, especially the
JNF box which made a great
impression on me.
"In 1952, Mrs. Kasle and I
visited Israel and saw many
wonderous things, but there was
not enough time to see the work
of every agency. But in Octo-
ber, 1960 when Mrs. Kasle and
I made another trip to Israel,
we made it. our business to take
a closer look at some of the
agencies and see what they were
doing with the funds that were
coming into Israel. We spent

ed

that Mrs. Kasle and I had for
having lived to the day that we Detroit Chapter of the American
could actually plant our own Jewish Committee. The elec-
tion will take place at a dinner
Kasle Family i'orest. I urge fam-
ilies or groups to work towards
•the goal where they, too, can
derive satisfaction in their life-
time to plant a forest so that
the land can be reclaimed and
conserved for the productive use
of those who have followed our
forefathers."
Reservations for the dinner in
Kasle's honor, by means of
planting 25 trees per couple,
may be made at the office of the
JNF, 18414 Wyoming.

ABE KASLE

several days at the Jewish Na-
tional Fund to see what actually
had been .done, what they are
doing now, and what their plans
were for the future. I am happy
and proud to say that our strong
faith in building a land for the
Jewish people was not in vain.
I measured the progress from
1952 to 1960. The accomplish-
ments that I saw in Israel, es-
pecially along the highways
where you can see the reclama-
tion of land, the removing of
rocks and the other barriers,
made the land fit for planting.
The trees that had not been
planted in 1952, but only after-
ward are now flourishing and
make the roads, the fields, and
the mountains beautiful beyond
description.
