Peres-- Pre - 4tints lsrael Tribute to Hamburgers;
$1,500,000 in Bonds Bought at Reform Event

More than $1,350,000 in Israel
Bond purchases was announced at
the third annual Bond dinner spon-
sored by the Metropolitan Detroit
Federation of Reform Synagogues
at the Sheraton-Cadillac Hotel
Wednesday evening. There were
some 450 in attendance.
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Ham-
burger, communal and philanthro-
pic leaders who are especially
active on behalf of Israel and its
economic development, were pre-
sented with. the State of Israel
Prime Minister's Medal by Shimon
Peres, who represented Prime Min-
ister Golda Meir.
The Prime Minister's Medal is
the higheid:award "for service in
-the cause of Israel's development."
The $1,300,000 total included
a $200,000 Bond purchased - by
United Jewish Charities and
announced by Irwin Green, presi-
dent. This is not the first time
that UJC has bought bonds- but
it was believed to be the largest
purchase.

Peres, Israel minister of trans-
portation and communications, in
his remarks compared the present
era in Israel with the times of the
Maccabees. Yet he saw three
major differences:
First, "We belong to an age
when physical strength is not
the whole story. If a nation is
in possession of advanced sci-
ence and technology, she can
face anything. There is no limit
to a nation's strength if she can
educate her children and teach
them the right values."
Second, "Many Jewish people
are coining home (to Israel). Last
month, 2,000 came to Israel from
the Soviet Union." He said the
coming of the Russian Jews is no
less important than the Six-Day
War.
Third, "There are 2,600,000 Jews
and 1,300,000 Arabs living to-
gether in Israel in prosperity and
safety."
Peres added, "There's a feeling
there is no future for Israel with-
out the participation of the Dia-
spora. Yet there is no future for
the Jewish people without a strong
and peaceful Israel
The dinner crowd largely ignored
60 anti-Israel pickets who marched
for 90 minutes in front of the
hotel. There was no violence.
The demonstrators, who yelled
"Free Palestine t Zionists out of
Palestine, "represented the Organ-
ization of Arab Students, Black
Workers Congress and the Youth
Against War and Fascism.
Mr. and Mrs Hamburger are top
leaders in Israel Bonds and the
Allied Jewish Cpxopaign. The De-
troit Institute of Arts, the Chil-
dren's Hospital of Michigan and
Sinai Hospital have been major
beneficiaries. Mr. and Mrs. Ham-
burger are members of Temple
Emanu-El and Cong. Shaarey
Zedek. Harry Modell, general
chairman, delivered the welcom-
ing remarks. Peres was introduced
by Rabbi Milton Rosenbaum of
Temple Emanu-EL
Leonard N. Simons, who was the
recipient of the Prime Minister's

Medal in 1969, gave the tribute to
Mr. and Mrs. Hamburger. Rabbi
Leon Fram, of Temple Israel, who
was the recipient of the medal
last year, pronounced the invoca-
tion, and Cantor Harold Oribach
of Temple Israel and Morton
Wolin, Emanu-El president, parti-
cipated in the Hanuka candle light-
ing. Other program participants
included Sam Frankel, chairman
of the Allied Jewish Campaign,
who represented the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation; Albert M. Col-
man, vice chairman; Archie
Katcher, president of the Reform
Synagogue Federation; and Rabbi
Morton M. Kanter of Temple Beth
EL
