Outlining plans for the dinner„
Cohn stressed the significance of
the milestone in Israel's history
"We are fortunate in having as
our guest speaker for this first
anniversary celebration of the Six
Days in June a great fighter and
champion for Israel's independence.
"Menahem Begin, as head of
Irgun Zvai Leumi, played a key
role in helping the so-called illegal
immigrants to reach Palestine,
thus counteracting the repressive
immigration policy of the British
administration. He preached in-
dependence for Israel and fought
for it, by every possible means.
When the British pulled out in 1948
and the State of Israel was estab-
lished, all of the underground de-
fense groups were merged into the
Defense Forces of the new State.
Begin was a member- of the first
Knesset and has been reelected
ever since. A year ago, he became
a member of the coalition Cabinet
which has been in effect since the
- "During that crisis, American
Jewry responded magnificently in
an unprecedented wave of gifts and
Israel Bond purchases.
"We all have good reason to be
proud of Israel's achievements thus
far. We have all gained spiritual
regeneration from the unification
of the Holy City of Jerusalem. Will
the new Israel measure up to the
new opportunities that lie ahead?
Will we measure up to the chal-
lenge of a new decade of problems
and needs which require our
united action and our continued
partnership of faith and deeds?
Our answer on June 4 can help to
shape the course of a decade."
