They Made the Grade

Beth Aaron Synagogue has purchased $100,000 in Israel Bonds
to demonstrate its faith in Israel and its unity with the people of
Israel in the gravest crisis in the 19-year life of the Jewish nation.
The purchase was made from Beth Aaron's Building Fund, under
the 30-day redemption clause open to synagogues and to other non-
profit Jewish institutions and organizations. The purchase was
authorized by the board of trustees. Involved in the transaction are
