Photo Reconstructs Gelfand's Sale of Bond to Coughlin

A 14-year-old photo re-
constructs an interesting
incident of an Israel Bond
sale that was made to
Father Charles E.
Coughlin, the radio priest
whose speeches aroused in-
ternational controversy.
The photo shows Jacob
(Jack) Gelfand, who died on
Jan 1, with Coughlin sign-
ing a check for a $500 Israel
Bond. Mrs. Gelfand (the
former Mildred Weine) re-
calls that her late husband
had been among the most
active workers for the
Zionist cause and for Israel
Bonds and had made many
supporters for the cause.
She said that he had the
special admiration of his

sons, David, now a practic-
ing radiologist and univer-
sity teacher in Winston
Salem, N.C., and Michael, a
nuclear medicine prac-
titioner and teacher in Cin-
cinnati.
When Mr. Gelfand told
his family about progress
he was making in his ef-
forts, David said to him,
"Maybe you can sell a
Bond to Father
Coughlin."
"Maybe I can," his father
responded.
David
knew
that
Coughlin was a regular cus-
tomer in his father's super-
market that was located not
far from the Shrine of the
Little Flower in Royal Oak.
A devout Polish Catholic
was his partner and the
partner was a friend of
Coughlin and a worshiper
in his church and Coughlin
came to see him regularly.
