Unanimity in Support of Israel
Called for at JNF Trib ute Dinner

By HEIDI PRESS
Appealing for Jewish
unanimity in support of on-
going negotiations for peace
in the Middle East, Phillip
Klutznick, head of the
World Jewish Congress,
said that all Jewish efforts
"must go to securing the
first Jewish state in 2,000
years."
Speaking Wednesday
night at a Jewish National
Fund tribute dinner in
honor of Edythe and Joseph
Jackier at Cong. Shaarey
Zedek, Klutznick said that
the JNF was the "peaceful
pursuit of the Jewish
people" of "land holy to us
today. But the land is no
good unless people fructify
it.
"Land and people without
security is an impossible
equation," he said. "We
want to fulfill the ambition
of the JNF — to acquire the
land peacefully.

"Unless we join hands
in a mature way that by
now we should have
learned from periods
we've passed . . . those
dreams cannot become
realities.
"To do less is not be
Jewish, to do less is not to
follow the example of what
we're doing here tonight."
He said "we have the re-
sponsibility to become in-
formed. We must under-
stand the period through
which we're passing. What
we want this time is peace,
not just the end of war.
"Peace is a condition of
man where he's relieved of
the burdens of armed
engagement . . . where he
can relieve the wars of de-
privation."
He added that "we are
committed to Israel and
peace — peace by negoti-
ation. One problem that
obsesses Jews all over
the world is the safety,
security and future of Is-
rael. Until that is solved
constructively . . . all
else will be in second
place."
Klutznick called parti-
sanship unwise and
obstructive to progress and
advised caution before re-
sorting to haste in judging
developing what is often
considered a crisis.
Klutznick added that the
Middle East situation is "a
unique problem of modern
times. Israel Egypt and the
U.S are trying to solve the
problems of people not sit-
ting with them.
"It is a bad time for Jews
to get involved in the argu-
ment publicly. It can only be
decided by open and direct
negotiations by Egypt, Is-
rael and the U.S. Our goal is
to encourage the negotia-
tions."
Alluding to a recent
speech in Detroit by
anti-Israel journalist, I. F.
Stone, Klutznick said
that "sometimes we need
the stimulus of that kind
of question — as long as it
doesn't come too fre-
quently."

Jewish concern which
Klutznick touched upon
were the "noshrim" —
Soviet Jews who opt to go to
other countries rather than
Israel after their release
from the Soviet Union, and
Jewish education.
noshrim,
the
On
Klutznick said, "Unless we
solve that problem intelli=
gently, history will never
forgive us. He said the drop-
outs should have a greater
understanding so that they
will make "an intelligent
decision" to go to Israel.
Regarding Jewish educa-
tion, Klutznick said it was
"a plight gnawing at the vi-
tals of Jewish life." He said
the costs of Jewish day
schools were "driving com-
munity after another mad,"
but "it is a cost we must
face."
Referring to the plight
of Iranian Jews, the
world Jewish leader
stated, "If I could find an
answer for the Iranian
Jews, I would not only be
crowned king of the
Jews, but king of the
world."
The dinner also was the
occasion to recognize the es-
tablishment of the Edythe
and Joseph H. Jackier Ob-
servation Terrace in the
American Bicentennial
Forest in Israel.
Addressing the more than
400 dinner guests, Carmi
Slomovitz, president of the
Greater Detroit Jewish Na-
tional Fund Council, said "it
is our duty to assure the
success and completion" of
efforts on behalf of the JNF.
Greetings from the
Jewish Welfare Federation
were read by George (Mike)
Zeltzer. Dr. Samuel I. Co-
hen, executive vice
president of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund of America,
brought greetings on behalf
of Moshe Rivlin, world
chairman of the Keren
Kayemet Leisrael.
Zeltzer recalled the
influence of the Jewish
National Fund in his
childhood, the place of
honor that was given the
Blue and White Box, his
participation in Tag and
Flower Days of the JNF.
Rabbi Irwin Groner,
spiritual leader of Cong.
Shaarey Zedek, recited the
invocation. Grandchildren
of the honorees, Lisa,
Ariana and Seth Jackier,
recited Hamotzi, and Can-
tor Sidney Rube, the Birkat
Hamazon.
Dr. Marty Jackier, son of
the honorees, paid a per-
sonal tribute to his parents
on behalf of himself and his
brothers. State Sen. Doug
Ross presented the couple
with a tribute proclamation
from the Michigan legisla-
ture.
Charles Milan, who with
his wife, Florence, accepted
the 1978 JNF tribute, pre-
sented the Jackiers with a
plaque.
Mrs. Jackier gave an
emotional response on be-
half of herself and her hus-
band in appreciation for the
honors bestowed on them.
