Cultural Gains Determine Israel's Strength,
Dinitz Tells Hebrew U. Dinner Citing Berry

Highest standards in
education, adherence to the
people's traditional cultural
aims and aspirations are
major in the task of over-
, coming dangers and obsta-
cles, Hebrew University
Vice President Simha
Dinitz, his country's former
ambassador to the United
c44- rtes, told a representative
.ience of nearly 500, at
uung. Shaarey Zedek, May
16. The occasion was the
presentation of the Hebrew
University's Scopus Award
to Louis Berry.
In the presentation to Be-
rry, Dinitz paid honor to the
Metropolitan Detroit leader
"in appreciation for his
many communal tasks and
his untiring labors in Is-
- rael'§ behalf."
The numerous causes to
which Berry has made not--
able contributions were
enumerated by Daniel Hon-
igman, dinner chairman,
who expressed the commu-
nity's gratitude for all the
honoree had done to ad-
vance the efforts of many
movements.
In an expression of
appreciation for the hon-
ors accorded him, Berry
gave emphasis to a
background of identifi-
cation which, he said,
was major in the aim of a
lifetime of sharing in the
most serious duties one
must meet in devotion to
his people and the com-
munity.

dinner and the tribute to
Berry, joined in extending
greetings to Berry and to
acclaim him for his services,
as did Rabbi Irwin Groner
in the benediction.
An impressive factor in
the tributes was the "Per-
sonal Reflection," a screen
portrayal of the life of Louis
Berry, narrated by W.B.
Doner, co-chairman of the
dinner committee, con-
tained scores of- pictorial ac-
counts of Berry's life and
social-communal services.
The dinner was an occa-
sion for reminiscing by two
eminent world Jewish lead-
ers. Max M. Fisher, who in-
troduced Dinitz, recalled
the tense years during the
services of the .:sraeli as
envoy to this country, when
he had to battle for Israel's
rights and plead for Ameri-
can aid. Fisher said that
Dinitz was courageous and
able in his tasks.
Dinitz responded by
recalling that during
those trying years after
the Yom Kippur War the
American Jewish com-
munity earned Israel's
gratitude for the assis-
tance given, and he said it
was under Fisher's lead-
ership that the coopera-
tion was attained.
Giving attention to
realities was urged by
Dinitz in his analyses of the
results of the peace agree-
ments between Israel and
Egypt. He foresaw difficul-
ties, nevertheless recog-
nized the immensity of the
achievements.
Dinitz pointed out that Is-
rael's triumphs in the
battles for survival have
been the results of inde-
structibility, of strength
which plays a part also even
in the peace negotiations.
He described Israel's
strength to resist threats of
destruction in the spiritual
and cultural values. Refer-
ring to the Arab call for a
million Arabs to march on
Jerusalem, he said that the
redemption and rebuilding
of Scopus as the Hebrew
University site is a measure
