MISS SYLVIA PERGAMENT

Children sleep, for protection, in bomb shelters et Maoz Haim
settlement on the Jordanian border. Examining the cribs are (from
left) Mesdames Morris J. Brandwine, Maxwell Lapides and Celia W.
Baruch who were the Detroit members of the women's mission to
Israel sponsored by the United Jewish Appeal.

Mr. and Mrs. Richard Pergament
of Goldwin Dr. Southfield, an-
nounce the engagement of their
daughter Sylvia to Lawrence Alan
Schlussel, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ber-
nard Schlussel of Addison Rd.,
Southfield.
Mr. Schlussel, a University of
Michigan graduate, attends the
Wayne State University School of
Law, where he is affiliated with
Tau Epsilon Rho legal fraternity.
An Oct. 11 marriage is scheduled.

Registering an 80 per cent in-
crease in their contributions to the
United Jewish Appeal, members of
a special UJA mission to Israel are
now assuming increased leadership
roles in communities throughout
the land.
Detroit members of the mission,
Mesdames Morris J. Brandwine,
Maxwell Lapides and Celia W. Ba-
ruch, are submitting reports on
their experiences. In a message to
Mrs. Max Stollman, chairman of
the 1969 Allied Jewish Campaign-
Israel Emergency Fund Women's
Division, Mrs. Brandwine stated:
"Our thoughts reflect exciting,
tiring, exhilarating, cold, inspiring,
wet, marvelous days.
"Malben at Rishon LeZion im-
pressed me because of my interest
in geriatrics . . . Certainly the
buildings are not as beautiful as
ours, but the aura of purpose, the
gift of worth that each one gets,
this is beautiful. The absorption
center in Ashdod, (one of 11) the
lovely rooms occupied by new-
comers while they learn the lan-
guage and are prepared for their
new life . . . certainly a far cry
from the Mabarot.
"In Beit Shean they have air raid
shelters for infants-75 cribs in
bunk bed style in which children
under three spend each night and
part of many days. They were
empty when we were there but
somehow I saw our grandchildren's
faces looking out at me and out of
gratitude that ours were sleeping
safely in their beds, I increased my
pledge again.
"At Lod airport when we greeted
102 newcomers. Bright young peo-
ple, with their lovely children from
eastern Europe and the Iron Cur-
tain countries who immediately
received Israeli passports! Instant

citizenship! The law of the return
. . . I am always warmed by the
thought that Jews have newcomers
—not refugees . . . and if we keep
our share of the bargain, there will
never again be a Jewish refugee "

Michael C. Hechtman has an-
nounced his candidacy for the posi-
tion of associate municipal judge in
the primary to be held Monday in
Oak Park.
As an Oakland assistant prosecu-
tor, Hechtman was called upon to
handle not only criminal problems,
but also the difficult matters con-
cerning juveniles and drug abuse.
It is Hechtman's feeling that only
a well defined and effective proba-
tion department working with the
department of public safety and
local educators has a chance, as a
group, to halt the presently spread-
ing problem of drug abuse.
Hechtman, a father of three and
a resident of Oak Park since 1956,
has been an attorney for Chrysler
Corp. and criminal defense counsel.
Hechtman is an Oak Park High
School graduate who received his
juris doctor from the Detroit Col-
lege of Law and has been admitted
to practice before all the local,
state and federal courts. He is an
active member of the American
Arbitration Association.

Jean Ellmann, as Octogenarian,
Retains Labor of Love: Poetry

For many hundreds of Detroit-
ers who have enjoyed the poems—
and the hospitality — of Jean Ell-
mann, Lincoln's Birthday also was
an occasion to honor her on her
birthday.
Jean—Mrs. James I.—was 80 on
Wednesday, and her husband, a
niece from New York, Isabelle,
and her husband, Dr. Jacob Krell,
were among those who helped
celebrate so important a natal
day in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.,
where the Ellmanns have their
winter residence.
Mrs. Ellmann has written hun-

MRS. JAMES I. ELLMANN

Mrs. Ellmann served on the
boards of Hadassah, Jewish Com-
munity Center and other organiza-
tions and served on important com-
mittees for Temple Beth El and
its Sisterhood and the Council of
Jewish Women.
While observing the octogenar-
ian's important birthday, the Ell-
manns are adding to the festivities
by preparing to celebrate their
55th wedding anniversary Feb. 22.
A native of Kiev, Russia, Mrs.
Ellmann was brought to this coun-
try as an infant. She lived in New
York and in Omaha and met her
husband in New York. They lived
in Highland Park for 50 years, be-
fore establishing residence in De-
troit and sharing it with their win-
ter vacations in Florida.
The Ellmanns have three sons,
IrWin, Richard and William, the
latter being the elder Ellmann's
law partner, and eight grandchil-
dren. Mrs. Ellmann has a sister,
Mrs. Muriel Braun of Detroit, and
two brothers, Burt Barsook of
Albuquerque, N.M., and Henry
Barsook of Los Angeles.
Mrs. Ellmann explains her latest
hobby as follows:
"Like Japanese prints that are
so simple with just a few outlines
that yet never fail to give an im-
pact, their HAIKU of 17 syllables
try to do the same with poetry.
They are fun to do and lots more
exciting than crossword puzzles!
Thus I add yet another designation
to my already lengthy list of
commitments."
Here are some samples of her
HAIKU poetry:
In my garden
