ceded the public reception, told
of dramatic plans for a series
of statewide dinners in support
of the Kennedy Memorial For-
eSt. He outlined an ambitious
program for the memorial proj-
ect, told of plans to present re-
productions of 50 pylons, in be- •
half of 50 states that are to par-
ticipate in the establishment of
the memorial, to President John-
son and Jacqueline Kennedy, and
urged that the Detroit JNF have
its dinner simultaneous with the
other states in January.
Another national project re-
vealed by Bressler to the Detroit
audiences is the Covenant Imami
—a covenant with my people—
through which are to be encour-
aged bequests to the JNF. As part

of this program, he said, a JNF
council will be organized for the
advancement of education. He
spoke of the need to increase cul-
tural activities in this country and
declared that JNF, under the new
covenant proposal, aims to fill a
void in providing the necessary
educational media for youth.
Bressler said that a minimum of
5,500,000 are expected to be
planted in the Kennedy Memorial
Forest. He expressed confidence
that governors of all states will
join in assuring the success of the
memorial by acting as honorary
chairmen of each state's efforts.
In his address at the recep-
tion, Bressler deplored the lack
of inspired leadership in this
country, the failure to secure a
willing following for major Jew-
ish tasks and the lack of strong
reserve in manpower for Jew-
ish activities.
He was critical of the attitude
of the State Department toward
Israel and expressed disappoint-
ment that there was no assurance
from the White House to Israel's
Prime Minister Levi Eshkol of
proper protection from the Arabs
militarily.
His emphasis on the need for
increased educational efforts was
based on his criticism of existing
cultural programs. He said the pres-
ent educational system is not suf-
ficiently successful to cope with
the great needs.
He made a strong appeal for
the Jewish all-day school pro-
grams and prescribed the Day
School as a remedy to existing
'shortcomings.
"The day school," he said, "is
the fortress of Jewish hopes for a
better future."

JNF Blue-White Boxes Likened by
Eshkol to Mezuzah on Door Posts

Levi Eshkol, Prime Minister of
Israel, made the following state-
ment in the presence of the top
leadership of the entire Zionist
movement in the United States,
assembled at a special meeting of
the American Zionist Council in
New York on June 5:
"I am an old enthusiastic ad-
herent cif the J e w is h National
Fund. Well do I remember the
days when through the JNF, we in
old Palestine, added dunam to
dunam, acre to acre, thus acquir-
ing stretches of land on which we
built our colonies and which, in
turn, became the foundation of
the State of Israel. Now that the
State is here, the task of the
Jewish National Fund is not fin-
ished by far. Only 40 per cent of
our territory is settled. We must
still reclaim and drain and re-
forest the land. It is true, we no
longer have to purchase dunams
of land as we used to do in the
old days when others settled and
controlled our country, but we
still have to "buy" the land from
the desert and the neglect and ruin
of ages. This is the holy task of
the Jewish National Fund — to
reclaim and reforest and to con-
serve the soil of Israel.
"Today, the energies and the
resources of the Jewish National
Fund are directed toward the re-
clamation and the resettlement of
the Galil, where a most important
agricultural undertaking is going
forward in what is a critically stra-
tegic area. At the same time, the
Negev is begining to feel the touch
of the plough after millenia of
desolation. The Government of
Israel, burdened as it is with so
many onerous porblems, of which
security is one, looks to the Jewish
National Fund to accompilsh this
vital task of soil reclamation and
aforestation.
"It has often been noted that
the Jewish National 7und, through
its activities in the Diaspora and

its achievements in the State of
Israel, is forging a link between
Israel and the Jews of the world.
This is the full truth. I would
say, the JNF Blue-White Box is
like the mezuzah on the Jewish
doorpost, the symbol and the mark
of Jewish identity."

Mrs. Benjamin E. Jaffe was elect-
ed president of the Jewish Family
and Children's Service at its June
meeting. Dr. Jack

homes and furnished 12,369 days'
care in foster homes for an aver-
age of 35 children monthly.

who have been house-parents in
this home for the past nine years
and who are retiring.
During 1963 the agency had 18
children in group facilities in ad-
dition to seven emotionally dis-
turbed girls who were living in
Sheruth House, the agency's
group treatment facility. Some of
these youngsters were in place-
ment in Bellefaire in Cleveland,

emotionally disturbed Jewish chil-
dren.
Homemaker service was pro-
vided to 35 families during the
year, including 18 aged individ-
uals.

includes referrals to nursing
homes and hospitals, and help in
finding living facilities for aged
individuals who cannot care for
themselves. In 1963 the agency
completed service on 114 cases of
aged.
