Detroit Jewry Among Leading Communities
Aiding Emergency Fund, Israel Bond Drive

Detroit Jewry is responding so generously to the appeal for the Israel
Emergency Fund and for the purchase of Israel Bonds that this community
once again is emerging among the leaders in the land.
Increased interest in the Israel Bond campaign, as was evidenced at
the dinner Monday at Cobo Hall which was attended by 1,500 people, and
the large sums invested, pointed to a record year for Israel Bonds and to
the enrollment of many hundreds of new participants in Bond drives.
Under the leadership of Paul Zuckerman, approximately 95 prominent
Detroiters, meeting at the Zuckerman home on June 8, set a precedent
for generosity by Detroit Jewry unparalleled in the history of philanthropic
activities.
Alter hearing a stirring address by Aryeh Louis Pincus, chairman of
the Jewish Agency for Israel. the group pledged the sum of $3,150,000 to
the newly-created Israel Emergency Fund. These gifts are additional to the
contributions the same men made to the Allied Jewish Campaign.
Irwin Cohn, chairman of the Allied Jewish Campaign cash collection
committee, reported simultaneously that the sum of $2,000,000 was collected
in advance and was remitted promptly to Israel. He reported that pledges
made to the Israel Emergency Fund as well as payments on previous pledges
are sent without delay to Israel to assist in upholding Israel's hands econo-
mically, to aid in harvesting neglected crops, to keep industries at work, to
help rebuild what has been destroyed in the war operations.
Supplementing his earlier address and acknowledging Detroit Jewry's
generosity, Pincus assured the gathering that Israel would be informed at
once about "the great response."

"Working together," Pincus said, "we will repair what has been damaged

JERUSALEM — The Israeli ship "Dolphine" passed the Gulf of Aqaba
today towards the port of Eilat under an Israeli flag, while life began returning to
normal throughout Israel. Military activity along all the battle lines came to a
halt although Israeli security forces continued with measures aimed at cleaning
up sniper activity and small pockets of resistance within the territory newly occu-
pied by Israel.
The nightly blackout was partially lifted in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa
but can be instantly restored by the use of central controls in any of the cities.
Street lights went on in all cities and neon signs in shops and cafes invited the
public to resume purchases of consumer goods and to patronize various places
of entertainment. For the first time since the start of the war, movie theaters open-
ed up and were immediately filled up with patrons.
The majority of the Israelis filling the streets in the cities are now khaki-
clad soldiers, many of them carrying newly-acquired souvenirs of last week's cam-
paigns in Sinai, Jordan or Syria. Mingling among the crowds are Israeli soldiers
wearing Jordanian officers' caps or Syrian Army jackets. In contrast to the gen-
eral feeling of joy and relief at the resounding victories over the Arab forces
were those Israeli families whose dear ones were lost in battle.
Life in the areas newly occupied by Israeli forces was also beginning to
