JNF Women's 'Operation Galilee'
Opens With $100,000 in Donations

Setting a new record for
contributions to their proj-
ects in land redemption and
afforestation, the Women of
the Jewish National Fund
Tuesday inaugurated the
"Operation Galilee" project
with a pledge of $250,000 to
be raised during the coming
three years.
At the annual donor tea
at Cong. Shaarey Zedek,
Tuesday, Reba Bloom,
president, and Shirley
Kraft, fund-raising chair-
- man, announced that more
than $100,000 was raised in
this year's activities
towards that pledge to the
U.S. and world Keren

bodies, thus assuring the
success of the new under-
taking far in advance of the
three-year elapse.

kowitz, national president
of the JNF of America, as
guest speaker, commended
the JNF Women of Detroit
for 49 years of devoted ef-
forts and for the current un-

Humphrey Parkway Named,
Created With Aid of JNF

"This isjust the type of
memorial dad would have
loved," said Minnesota
State Sen. Hubert Hum-
phrey III, eldest son of the
late Hubert Humphrey,
Democratic Senator from
Minnesota and one-time
Vice President, as he sur-
veyed the Humphrey Park-
way through the American
Bicentennial Forest in the
Jerusalem hills last Friday.
The younger Humphrey,
his wife, his two brothers
and their wives cut the rib-
bons opening the parkway
after an impressive dedica-
tion ceremony in which
Premier Menahem Begin
praised their late father "as
a great. Man and a good man
. . . , One of the righteous
Humphrey, in a warm
and folksy speech reminis-
cent of his father's style,
stressed that the parkway
and the entire Bicentennial
Park is developing as "a
people's park" — where
residents of Jerusalem and
Tel Aviv can come for rest
and recreation. For that
reason particularly, he said,
it was a fitting memorial for
Hubert Humphrey who had
"loved people."
Begin, in a short and
moving address, said
Hubert Humphrey
"loved liberty and justice
and labored for them all
his life. He wanted them
to triumph not only in his
great country but all over
the world. All his life he
was a friend of Israel ...
semper fidelis ... always
faithful .... He stood by
us through the most dif-
ficult times. He really
loved Israel. The Jewish
people never forget the
good bestowed by its
friends. For many, many
years he was the first, the
best and the most de-
voted friend of the
Jewish people and the
state of Israel." Begin
added this was not meant
to diminish from the
friendship of others.
The ceremony was held in
brilliant sunshine at a
scenic spot along the park-
way. After days of rain and
blustery winds, the Jewish
National Fund, creators of

the park, whose American
section developed the Hum-
phrey Parkway project, was
relieved at the change in
weather that came just in
time for the ceremony.
Apart from its function as
a scenic driveway through
the heart of the Bicenten-
nial Park, the Humphrey
Parkway will serve as an
important artery linking
half a dozen of the
moshavim in the Jerusalem
hills with the Tel Aviv area,
reducing by some 30
kilometers the existing,
winding roads.
As such, said JNF chair-
man Moshe Rivlin, in his
address, the parkway will
be a vital boon to the eco-
nomic development of these
