Shiffman, on 75th Birthday, Stresses Need for Vocational
Training, Praises ORT's Activities in Israel and in Italy


Detroit's distinguished philan-
thropist Abraham Shiffman, on the
eve of his 75th birthday, which he
will observe on Dec. 25, gave as his
major credo in many of the. tasks
he has undertaken, an ideal he de-
veloped, to wit: "Educate the hands
at the same time that you educate
the mind."
He repeated this principle that
motivates many of his efforts—
his devotion to ORT, his interest
in vocational training, the gift of
$500,000 he gave only two months
ago, while in Israel, for a high
school in Tirat Carmel near Haifa,
and the additional gift of $10,000
he gave at the same time to the
Hebrew University for the train-
ing of teachers, to assure proper
educators for schools like the one
he is financing in Tirat Carmel.
The latter gift will be implement-
ed by him with an additional sum.
Shiffman spoke with enthusi-
asm about the work of the ORT
schools he visited in Israel and
in Rome. He said he was deeply
moved by the activities of the
school in Nathanya, that he was
impressed by the many skills
taught in Rome. In Italy, he
said he had met young men who
were rescued from the danger
of delinquency, who were taught
to acquire a trade and thereup-
on immediately gave up the
peddling of mementos on
Rome's streets. He said he wit-
nessed the teaching of girls to
acquire knowledge as seam-
stresses. "The standards of our

youth have been raised in such
fashion," he said.
He described the ORT school's
functions in Nathanya, the many
mechanical • and other trades
taught in that vast setting, and he
said he was impressed not only by
the training provided there but
also by the skills with which
teachers and students created
their own tools, their own lathes
that are very expensive and most
"Any shop in Detroit woutld be
justly proud to have the grad-
uates of ORT schools work there,"


Shiffman said. He said that the
trades taught in Nathanya include
electronics and he took pride in
ORT activities which, he said,
moved him deeply and
strentghened his belief that "we
must educate the hands at the
same time that we educate the
Shiffman advocates that a vo-
cational program be introduced

in our high schools as a general
answer to the dropout problem.
He said that he was proud that
in the building he donated sev-
eral years ago located at 1501
East Ferry presently used in
the Mayor's Special Youth Em-
ployment Project. Under the
direction of Don Heelis, young
people are trained there for
job upgrading. Shiffman believes
this program contributes towards
vocational training in remark.
able fashion, assisting in the
elimination of delinquency and
in training creative citizenship.
He also commended the work
done by the Detroit Board of Ed-
ucation in the Wilbur Wright
School. "I consider it one of the
finest accomplishments in our com-
munity," he stated.
"The answer to the race prob-
lem also is the trade school,"
Shiffman said, pursuing the theme
that motivates many of his cur-
rent activities.
A native Detroiter, Shiffman
has, in recent years, emerged as
Detroit's chief benefactor of ma-
jor causes. In addition to his large
gifts made in Israel, he has been
among the largest donors to the
Jewish Community Center and his
chief benefactors include: $500,000
each to Brandeis University,
Wayne State University and Sinai
Hospital. He is one of the large
donors to, and an active worker
for the Allied Jewish Campaign.
