Mrs. Harris Heads Federation Women's Division

Mrs. Merle Harris has
been elected president of the
women's division of the Jew-
ish Welfare Federation, an
organization of nearly 10,000
Detroit-area women who con-
tribute to the Allied Jewish
Campaign-Israel Emergency
Fund.
Mrs. Harris has been an
active leader in the women's
division for more than a
decade. She has been divi-
sion campaign chairman for
the past two years and coor-
dinated the emergency cam-
paign which followed the
Yom Kippur War last fall.

She was one of 24 women
chosen nationally to join a
special United Jewish Appeal
mission immediately after
the cease-fire agreement
with Egypt.
One of the two -women's
division representatives on
the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion's board of governors,
she is also a member of Fed-
eration's executive commit-
tee.
In 1967, Mrs. Harris re-
ceived the Sylvia Simon
Greenberg award, a Federa-
tion honor given annually to

Orthodox Rabbis Offer to Arbitrate
in Teachers' Dispute With UHS

With the controversy be-
tween Hebrew teachers and
the United Hebrew Schools
now a well-publicized issue,
new efforts are being made
to bring both sides together
so as to avoid continuing pub-
lic debate.
In a letter to Rabbi Charles
Rosenzveig of the Associa-
tion - of Hebrew Teachers,
Rabbi Leizer Levin offered
the services of the Council of
Orthodox Rabbis to create a
Beth Din to arbitrate the
teachers' conflict with the
UHS.

UHS Voting
Rule Defined

According to a ruling ap-
proved by the United Hebrew
Schools board of directors,
the spouse of a contributor
to the Allied Jewish Cam-
paign was eligible to sign
petitions of candidates for
board positions in the UHS
election June 19. The peti-
tion signer must be a paid-up
member of the UHS.
However, a voter in the
election need be only a mem-
ber of the UHS; a contribu-
tion to the campaign is not
required. Contrary to what
was reported in last week's
Jewish News, the spouse of
a UHS member cannot vote
in the member's stead. -
A candidate for office must
be both an AJC contributor
and a member of the UHS,
according to t h e United
Hebrew Schools bylaws.
The Concerned Parents of
the UHS is asking all parents
of students to pay the $10
UHS membership fee so
they may cast votes at the
UHS annual meeting, 8 p.m.
June 19 at the UHS building
in Southfield. Dinner, which
is optional, will be served at
6:30 p.m.

Rabbi Levin, president of
the council, said "this solu-
tion would be in the spirit
of our historic tradition that
an internal communal con-
flict would be decided by a
rabbinical court."
Not all the teachers were
in agreement with the leader-
ship of the Association of
Hebrew Teachers. A letter
signed by five teachers and
sent _ to . The Jewish.. News
Monday stated:
"We, United H e b r e w
School teachers, are shocked
and appalled that aid to
Israel is threatened because
of a labor dispute. The free
world condemns Arab terror-
ists who use Israelis as hos-
tages, yet in this case all of
Israel is being used as a hos-
tage for the settlement of
seven teachers' labor dispute.
This is a despicable act. The
heads of the Hebrew Teach-
ers' union have acted without
our knowledge and we ve-
hemently protest against this
irresponsible action."
Rabbi Rosenzveig said the
inclusion of Israel in the
press conference remarks of
AFL - CIO Detroit Council
President Tom Turner on
May 21 was made over
Rosenzveig's objection. He
said he regretted that Israel
had been injected into the
controversy.

Birthdays

By Dr. SAMUEL J. FOX

6.90

ZIZANIE

(Copyright 1974, JT4, Inc.)

In the Bible birthday cele-
brations are mentioned only
as non-Jewish observances.
The birthday of the Pharaoh
of Egypt seems to have been
mentioned as celebrated
(Genesis 40:20). Generally,
there are no specific prohi-
bitions against celebrating
birthdays. What the Bible
seems to emphasize is not
the anniversary of one's
birth, but rather the mile-
stone of one's accomplish-
ment. Thus Sarah's age is
mentioned with emphasis, as
is that of Moses, etc.

Turner had said that if the
UHS and Jewish Welfare
federation leadership do not
resolve the conflict with the
teachers' union, the AFL-
CIO will "ask its friends in
the community to withhold
funds from Israel Bonds,
Histadrut and ()tier causes."

a woman with outstanding
leadership qualities and com-
mitment to the community.
Mrs. Harris is a past vice-
president of Hadassah and
served as financial secretary
to that organization.
Also elected as officers of
Federation's women's divi-
sion at the annual meeting
held at Temple Beth El were
Mesdames N. Brewster
Broder, Hugh W. Greenberg,
Nathan S. Peterman and
Norman H. Rosenfeld, vice-
presidents; Mrs. Irving W.
Goldman, recording secre-
tary; and Mrs. Samuel Fran-
kel, corresponding secretary.
Mrs. Max Stollman. and
Mrs. Harris were re-elected
to represent the division on
Federation's board of gov-
ernors.
