"Let us drink a toast to the time
when every village, settlement and
town in Israel will have a library
and a school and the means to
afford all its children the best of
educations from the cradle to the
college and postgraduate level,"
said Charles J. Bensley, speak-
ing at the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem, where he was honored
with the title of Honorary Fellow.
Bensley, of New 'York, is presi-
dent of the Israel Education Fund
of the United' Jewish - Appeal. He
was honored "in appreciation and
recognition of conspicuous services
and lifelong involvement in the
cause of higher education through-
out the world and in Israel" and
for "a career of distinguished serv-
ice in public education and an out-
standing contribution to the devel-
opment of the educational system
of Israel."
Avraham Harman, the univer-
sity's president, said that the uni-
versity sought to honor people who
are symbols of a wide range of
service to Israel, the Jewish people
and all mankind.
