Jewish News, Hadassah President
Instrumental in Reuniting Kinsmen
As the result of an article that
appeared in The Jewish News
March 12, a Soviet Jewish emi-
grant to Israel and his American
cousin will be reunited. The
"matchmaker" was Mrs. Sidney
(Melba) Winer, president of the
Detroit Chapter of Hadassah.
When Mrs. Winer returned from
the Hadassah midwinter confer-
ence in Israel, she asked The
Jewish News to help her locate
the relative of a woman who had
just immigrated to Israel with her
husband and married daughter.
The husband, engineer Natan
Zirulnikov of Leningrad, was Is-
rael's 3,000,000th immigrant. The
daughter, Alexandra. who is preg-
nant, had to come to Israel with-
out her husband, who had not been
allowed to emigrate with them.
Some 10* years ago, Zirulnikov
had been sentenced to three years'
imprisonment for trying to estab-
lish pro-Israel groups. The term
was reduced to three months when
others intervened in his behalf
and he promised to discontinue
his efforts for Israel.
Mrs. Zirulnikov is the cousin of
a former Detroiter, whom she
knew as Lev Rubinchek when he
left Leningrad between 1925 and
'30 and returned for a visit in
1960. Unknown to her. Lev chang-
ed his name to Louis Rubin and
left Detroit to live in Cleveland.
Melba Winer knew only that
she was to try and find a De-
-roiter named Lev Rubinchek,
and on the basis of this informa-
tion a story appeared in The
On Tuesday, the Detroit office
of Hadassah received a phone call
from an Oak Park woman, Mrs.
Ethel Gaft, who excitedly an-
nounced that Rubin, or Rubin-
chek, was her distant cousin and
that contact had been made with
Mrs. Gaft had read The Jewish
News article and phoned her third
cousin, Mrs. Bernard Roberts of
Southfield, whose mother was the
sister of Louis Rubin's father.
Hit Sabbath Cable
Runs at Masada
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Knesset
member Shlomo Lorincz of Agu-
date Israel lodged a formal com-
plaint in the Knesset against op-
eration on the Sabbath of a cable
car from the Dead Sea to the
ancient Jewish fortress of Masada.
Demanding a debate on the is-
sue, he exclaimed, "The heroes of
Masada have fallen in vain!" Lor-
incz continued, "The defenders of
Masada died because they refused
to give up their rights to practice
their religion. What the Roman
legions failed to do 2,000 years
ago, has now been achieved by
In reply t-' his charges, Depu-
ty Prime Minister Yigal Allon
stated that the matter was en-
tirely out of the government's
control. The cableway, he said,
had been built and was being
run by a foreign investor's com-
pany under an irrevocable con-
tract with the National Parks
Authority, an independent body
under the law. The Parks Au-
thority, he continued, had leased
the site from the National Lands
Administration for 49 years, and
nothing could be legally done
before the year 2018.
Allon added that if the govern-
ment would interfere, it would be
guilty of breach of contract, and
therefore, he concluded, it would
be pointless to debate the motion
or refer it to a committee for

Some personal reflections
this Passover from one family
May we in all humility say this: The House of Streit has been
blessed with good fortune. Through the years, our ovens have been busy.
Trucks, trains and boats have carried our products to every corner of the
world, wherever there are Jews. Many are the "daily" Kosher products
that bear our name.
But they are all secondary to the true purpose of our continued
existence . . . the observant and traditional baking of Passover matzos.
It is this continuity of obligation that has been handed down through our
generations, father to son, father to son. And this is what we learned
from our father, Aron Streit, of blessed memory . . . the mandate of
Kashruth, the unbowing fidelity to correctness, the traditional family
formula responsible for the traditional taste and quality of Streit's matzos.
This precious heritage from our father we are proud to pass on
to our children, even unto the youngest grandson who, on this coming
Passover, will ask the centuries-old question, "Ma nish-tanaw
How happily, proudly and thankfully will we answer him!
