Zionism's aim to protect the des-
tiny of the Jewish people, and the
historic significance of the Jeru-
salem Program which was adopted
by the last World Zionist Congress,
were given their interpretations in
the light of the new efforts to uni-
fy Jewish ranks at the inaugural
assembly of the Zionist Federation
of Detroit, held Sunday evening at
Cong. Shaarey Zedek.

Rabbi Israel Miller, president of
the American Zionist Federation,
together with local representatives,
outlined the aims for unity
throughout the newly federated
movement. In an inspired address,

Rabbi Miller pointed to the signifi-
cance of the slogan of the AZ Fed-
eration — haverim kol Israel—all
Jews are united in one brother-
hood. He told of having seen these
words as a street name in Jerusa-
lem on his recent visit there and
of his having been moved to pro-
pose use of the unifying term as
(weans of linking Jewish efforts in
defense of Israel and in support
of the great Jewish libertarian
movement.
