23061 COOLIDGE HWY. OAK PARK, AT 9 MI.',

Detroiter Phillip Stollman
was re-elected global chair-
man of the Bar-Ilan Univer-
sity Board of Trustees at its
annual meeting in Israel.
Other officers are Mati-
tyahu Adler, director-gener-
al of the university since
1965, vice president for ad-
ministrative and financial
matters; H.' Jerome Sissel-
man and Rabbi Seymour
M. Zambrowsky, vice chair-
men; Dr. Zeraeh Wahrhaf-
tig, chairman of the execu-
tive council; and Dr. Jo-
seph Burg, chairman of the
international board of over-
seers. Elected to the board
were Abraham Spiegel,
Rabbi Abraham Khazan
and Moshe Nissim, member
of Knesset.
While in Israel, Phillip
Stollman attended the uni-
versity's commencement
exercises at which Sir
Isaac Wolfson received an
honorary degree. Dr. Jo-
seph Lookstein, chancellor
of Bar-Ilan, made the pre-
sentation.
The commencement exer-
cises were addressed by
Rachel Twaig, a recent im-
migrant from Baghdad,
Iraq, who with many other
Jews was deprived of her
rights in her native country
following Israel's victory in
the Six-Day War.
She stated in part:
"Friends, I was not cho-
sen to represent you—I my-
self asked to speak for I

felt that I had to stand here
and describe a certain pic-
ture and I am grateful that
my request was answered.
In this picture, I see a cere-
mony similar to ours here
today, which was to have
taken place exactly 10
years ago in the Jewish
school, Shamash, in Bag-
hdad, where hundreds of
Jewish students studied and
which today is no longer a
Jewish school where the
voices of Jewish children
can be heard.
"It was customary for
the Jewish community to
congratulate the out-
standing students and to dis-
tribute prizes, and in 1967 I
was chosen to represent the
graduating class and to ad-
dress the audience—but I
was deprived of this honor.
The Six-Day War and Is-
rael's victory brought the
final destruction of the Jew-
ish community. The ceremo-
ny where I was supposed to
give the opening address
never took place ; my
friends and I, graduates of
the Jewish high school,
were not allowed to fulfill
the dreams of our parents
and our community—we
were deprived of our
rights—all the rights of citi-
zens, for one simple rea-
son—our being Jews.
"Four years ago I imm-
grated to Israel and was ac-
cepted at Bar-Ilan Univer-
sity and today I see myself

in a similar situation to
that of 10 years ago but
with a major difference—a
ceremony and honors but
who and what and where?!
I am not in Baghdad but I
am here in Ramat Gan in
the state of Israel in a Jew-
ish religiously-oriented uni-
versity.

"Bar-Ilan was not only a
place of study for me but it
was a warm home where
every lecturer and every
firend was my partner and
helped me learn the lan-
guage and overcome the in-
itial difficulties in order to
become one of the crowd.
Thank God they succeeded
and this is my success: I
overcame the language diffi-
culties and I stand before
you now—a graduate like
the rest of you.
"Allow me one other per-
sonal comment: the re-
quired basic Jewish courses
were for me a special privi-
lege and they contributed
greatly to strengthen my
Jewish consciousness. I
didn't know much when I
came here ; I had little
knowledge of Judaism.
"I learned here at Bar-
Ilan University what it is to
be a Jewess and to be
proud of our heritage and
the land of . our fathers."

No man can dwell to-
gether with a serpent in one
house.
