Streicher Poison Matter
Mailed to Canadians

TORONTO, (JTA) — Reproduc-
tions of a May 1934 issue of Julius
Streicher's notoriously anti-Semitic
"Der Steumer," published in Nazi
Germany and devoted exclusively
to the myth of Jewish ritual mur-
der, have been received through
the mail by a number of promin-
ent Canadians, including members
of Parliament and leaders of po-
litical life in Toronto. The repro-
ductions, which were sent from
return addresses in Birmingham,
Ala., contain the headline in Ger-
man across the front page, "The
Jews Are Our Misfortune," and
its contents are strewn with re-
productions of medieval woodcuts
depicting Jews committing various
diabolical and murderous acts.

At the Congregation Beth Abraham dinner where $66,000 in
Israel Bonds was subscribed are (from left) seated: Dr. Harry New-
man, president of the congregation, one of the honorees, and Con-
speaker; standing: William
gressman James Roosevelt, the guest
Genser, dinner committee chairman; Judge Nathan J. Kaufman,
toastmaster; Dr. Max Karl Newman, the other honoree, and Sam
Kaufer, dinner committee co-chairman.

there is any effort to stop it,
necessary steps will be taken.
"President Johnson told King
Hussein that we we have a com-
mitment to maintain the integrity
of Israel and that aggression will
be prevented if there is any way
to prevent it.
"I must warn the people to be
prepared for a series of incidents
of nuisance value but we won't be
intimidated by such incidents. We
made it clear to Hussein that as
far as the United States is con-
cerned, there shall not be any in-
terference with the flow of water
to the Negev, despite Hussein's
threat that the Arab nations in-
tend in every way short of war to
prevent Israel from getting the
water from the Sea of Galilee.
"All Americans should realize
the debt we owe to Israel. Any-
thing we do to help Israel, like
buying Israel Bonds, helps Amer-

Rabbi Israel I. Halpern paid tri-
bute to the honorees.
The Newmans were presented
with souvenir folios containing the
names of those who subscribed for
Israel Bonds in their honor.

Hamazon. William Genser was the
dinner committee chairman with
Sam Kaufer as co-chairman. Joey

dian, headed the program of en-
tertainment.

Monument Unveiled
in Philadelphia as
Tribute to 6 Million

PHILADELPHIA (JTA) — The
first monument in the United
States commemorating the 6 mil-
lion European Jewish men, wo-
men and children murdered by
the Nazis, an 18-foot bronze sculp-
ture, was unveiled and presented
to the city of Philadelphia Sunday.
The monument was presented by
the Association of Jewish New
Americans in a ceremony sponsor-
ed by the association and the
Federation of Jewish Agencies on
behalf of the Philadelphia Allied
Jewish Appeal. Mayor James H. J.
Tate accepted the monument on
behalf of the city.
Standing on a two-foot base of
black granite, the monument was
created by sculptor Nathan Rapo-
port, whose works include the
monument on the site of the for-
mer Warsaw Ghetto. The five-ton
monument portrays in symbolic
terms a dying mother, lying amid
flames; a writhing child upholding
the Torah; a patriarchal figure
with arms raised in benediction,
and several arms wielding daggers.
The entire cast is surmounted by
a blazing Menorah.

. . . How is
UNITED HEBREW SCHOOLS
different
from all the other Hebrew schools?

Because it is not just another Hebrew
school.

It has a unique function as the central
system for Jewish education in Metropolitan
Detroit.

A system of high-quality, modern educa-
tion, uniform throughout the community.

The program is designed for the Ameri-
can child of nursery school age, the young-
ster in elementary school, the teenager in
high school, the young adult in college. And
for the college graduate, too.

The program is double-track—for the
student of special ability, for the student of
slower ability.

Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah training
is provided at no extra cost.

Beginning in September, 1964, most
branches will be on a schedule of three days
a week, two hours a day.

United Hebrew Schools is the educa-
tional arm of the Jewish Welfare Federation
of Detroit, and as the community school
system, is committed to provide a Jewish
education for every child.

With Federation's financial support, no

child will be denied a Jewish education for

And there is a tutorial program to handle
special problems.

Teachers are professionally trained—in
general and Hebraic studies.

The program also is designed to meet
the five-year study requirement for Bar
Mitzvah.
