Community Cooperation Enlisted for Fete
Honoring Emma Schaver Slated Nov.7
The entire Detroit Jewish com-
munity is joining to pay tribute
to Emma Schaver, the guest of
honor at the Israel Miracle Year
Dinner, 6:30 p.m. Nov. 7, at Cobo
Hall. The highlight of the affair
will be presentation of the Eleanor
Roosevelt Humanities Award to
Mrs. Schaver by Golda Meir, "First
Lady of the Jewish World," who
is coming to Detroit especially to
honor Mrs. Schaver, her friend of
many years standing.
"The Eleanor Roosevelt Human-
ities Award perpetuates the mem-
ory of a distinguished human be-
ing, who gave of herself to so many
humanitarian causes and was es-
pecially close to Israel from its
rebirth as a nation in 1948," the
announcement of the award states:
"In our time, no woman in the
Western world, with the exception
of Eleanor Roosevelt, has reached
such a high position of public
esteem and leadership as Golda
Meir. She has been called a mod-
ern Deborah, and recognized as a
founding mother of Israel. No
woman has had such a great share
in shaping the life of the Jewish
people in our time. Farm worker,
author, diplomat, executive, gov-
ernment leader, school teacher and
crusader for peace and freedom,
Mrs. Meir has become one of Is-
rael's most eloquent and forceful
spokesmen, and a symbol of Is-
rael's moral stature in the interna-
A native of Russia, Golda
Meir was brought to the United
States by her parents at the age
of 8. She was educated in Mil-
waukee and taught school there
before emigrating to Palestine
with her husband in 1921. Start-
ing as a worker in a kibutz,
she rose rapidly in the ranks of
Histadrut, the trade union move-
ment of Palestine, and eventual-
ly assumed a position of top
leadership in the Jewish Agen-
cy, which served as the organ-
ized structure of the Jewish
community under the British
Mandate. She was also one of
the founders of the Manai Party.
When the heads of the Jewish
Agency were imprisoned, Mrs.
Meir took over as acting head
of the political department of
the Jewish Agency, serving in
that capacity during Israel's war
of Independence. Her two chil-
dren served in the Israel Armed
Forces. She was the only woman
among the 37 signers of Israel's
Declaration of Independence.
At time's she became involved
in cloak-and-dagger and danger-
gerous adventures. On one occa-
sion, masquerading as a veiled
Arab woman, she crossed the bor-
der to meet with King Abullah of
Jordan, in the hope that he might
be persuaded to refrain from par-
ticipating in the attack on Israel.
Unfortunately her mission failed.
She was Israel's first ambas-
sador to the Soviet Union and thou-
sands of Jews filled the streets
of Moscow to catch a glimpse of
her attending Rosh Hashana ser-
vices in the synagogue. She served
as minister of labor and in June
1956 assumed the high post of
foreign minister of the State of Is-
rael, serving for 10 years. A firm
believer in the decisive importance
of economic development, Mrs.
Meir was one of the founders in
1951 of the Israel Bond Campaign.
Mrs. Meir is now serving as
secretary-general of Mapai, Israel's
leading political party.
