Your special 25th anniversary

the early days.
You began then with high com-
petence and broad vision and the

justified your courage and self-
confidence — they have given to
Detroit and the Jewish world an
intelligent, understanding and sym-
pathetic voice for the public good.

It was a delight to learn that
this marks the 25th Anniversary
of The Jewish News. It is an occa-
sion of which all of Detroit Jewry
ought to feel rightly proud. I
have always considered the Jewish
News to be one of the best English-
Jewish newspapers published any-
where. For this level of achieve-
ment and for such high quality
you certainly deserve every com-
mendation.
It is not without reason that for
many years now we have been
making use of The Jewish News
for Jewish current events studies
from the Junior High level and up
in our Synagogue Hebrew School.
The Jewish News has done much
for the cohesiveness of the Jewish
community and for the promotion
of many important Jewish values.
In the continuing struggle for
Jewish survival and for self - res-
pect there is still much that the
Jewish News can do, and still
greater heights for it to strive for
In making its impact felt upon the

that spirit do we express the
