J. Timerman
in Grand Rapids

NEW YORK — Former
Argentine publisher Jacobo
Timerman, who, was held
without charge and tor-
tured by the Argentine
military junta for two years,
will speak in Grand Rapids
Oct. 11 as part of the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
Brith Lectureship in
Human Rights.
Timerman's Grand
Rapids appearance before
the Jewish cultural Council
is part af a series of 17
speaking engagements
throughout the U.S. and
Canada.

Nothing is more hateful
to a poor man than the
purse-proud arrogance of
the rich. But let the poor

man become rich and he
runs at once into the vice
against which he so feel-
ingly declaimed.

FORESTS

that bear your name

Long after you have gone, forests in Israel
renewing themselves in the cycle of sea-
sons, will keep your memory ever green.
When making your Will, provide that a
forest in Israel be planted in your name or
in that of someone dear to you, handing
down your last wish from generation to
generation.

A bequest to the J.N.F. is a bequest to the
entire Jewish people, linking the name
of the Testator with Israel in perpetuity.
