A TIME FOR CELEBRATION AND REDEDICATION

THE ISRAEL 22nd ANNIVERSARY INAUGURAL DINNER
Thursday, May 28, 1970, 7 P.M.—Grand Ballroom, Detroit Hilton Hotel

SALUTE ISRAEL-WELCOME EDWARD G. ROBINSON+HONOR NATHAN FISHMAN

EDWARD G. ROBINSON

As we celebrate the twenty-second anni-
versary of Israel's independence, we experi-
ence a sense of joy, admiration and gratitude
for the splendid achievements, the indomita-
ble courage and the spiritual strength of the
people of Israel in the face of many problems
and crises. Our joy is tempered, however, by
the realization that the prolonged struggle for
a lasting peace is draining the meager eco-
nomic resources of Israel — resources that
would otherwise be utilized in the vital proj-
ects necessary for the building of the country
and for providing the homes and jobs for the
new immigrants.
Looking back over the past two decades

NATHAN FISHMAN

PRIME MINISTER'S MEDAL

and more, we can see and appreciate what our
role of economic partnership through Israel
Bonds has meant for Israel's inner strength.
Following the historic victory in the Six-Day
War of June, 1967, Israel's leaders declared
that without the reservoir of economic support
by American Jewry not only in that critical
period but during the many preceding years,
Israel might not h'ave survived. As we all know,
the situation today is no less critical than in
1967. More than ever, we are determined to
stand by Israel as her most dependable ally
on the economic front.
It is in this mood of solemn determination
that we dedicate our celebration of Israel's
twenty-second anniversary to strengthening

our unity with the people of Israel through
Israel Bonds.
On the occasion of our celebration on
Thursday, May 28th, we will be proud to wel-
come Edward G. Robinson, the dean of motion
picture stars, champion of human rights and
friend of Israel. At the launching of the 1970
Israel Bond campaign in Florida, Mr. Robin-
son dramatically expressed the feeling of
American Jewry when he said, "If Israel falls,
we all fall with her."
Mr. Robinson will be joining us in paying
tribute to Nathan Fishman, who is celebrating
his 75th birthday this year. Our community is
deeply indebted to Mr. Fishman for a lifetime
of humanitarian effort and devoted involve-

ment in Jewish affairs and the cause of Israel.
A highlight of the occasion will be the presen-
tation to Mr. Fishman of the State of Israel
Prime Minister's Medal for his many years of
distinguished leadership in behalf of the estab-
lishment and upbuilding of the State of Israel.
We look forward to the May 28th dinner
celebration of Israel's twenty-second anniver-
sary as a timely and significant opportunity
for a most inspiring demonstration of our sol-
idarity with Israel. As we have done in the
past, we in Detroit shall rise to the occasion,
matching our faith in Israel with the kind of
moral and economic support to assure that
Israel shall live and prosper in peace and
freedom.
