We are proud to welcome Israel's dis-
tinguished Minister of Justice, Dr. Dov
Joseph, whom we salute as the heroic de-
fender of Jerusalem.
Born in Montreal, Dr. Joseph received
his legal training in Canada. As a mere youth
he joined the Jewish Legion in World War
II. He fell in love with Jerusalem, the city
he helped to free as he fought under Gen-
eral Allenby and settled in Palestine in 1921.
A prominent member of the legal pro-
fession, Dr. Joseph became legal advisor to
the Jewish Agency under the British Man-
date and, together with other top Zionist
leaders, he was interned by the British at
Latrun in 1946.
In 1947, Dov Joseph was appointed
by the Provisional Government as Military
Governor of Jerusalem. In lauding Dr.
Joseph's historic service to Israel in resisting
the Arab siege of Jerusalem during the War
of Liberation, David Ben-Gurion wrote:
"Dov Joseph secured his place in the con-

temporary history of our people in the days
of the siege of Jerusalem, when the capital
was cut off from the rest of the population,
shelled and starved. By his organizing skill,
his energy and his devotion he saved the
city from the danger of starvation and the
peril of destruction."
After the establishment of the State of
Israel, Dr. Joseph become its first Minister
of Development. He has served as Minister
of Commerce and Industry, Minister of
Transportation and Communications and
Minister of Supply and Rationing, and is a
leading authority on Israel's program of
economic development aided by Israel
He gave inspiration to our commun-
ity in 1955 and he comes to us on Thursday,
Nov. 7th, to inspire us again in our efforts
on behalf of Israel Bonds, as our distin-
guished guest at our Historic Tribute Dinner,
in the Fountain Room of the Masonic
Temple. Shalom and Welcome to you, Dov
