The 60th anniversary of
Histadrut and the 75th of
the Labor Zionist Alliance
will be observed 2 p.m.
July 12 at Temple Emanu-
El, at a joint anniversary
celebration.
The program will feature
as guest speaker the na-
tionally known educator
and Zionist, Prof. Benjamin
Halpern.
Dr. Halpern, who served
as managing editor of the
Jewish Frontier magazine
and associate director of the
departments of culture,
education and publications
of the Jewish Agency, be-
came a research associate in
Middle Eastern studies at
Harvard University in
1956.
He began his associa-
tion with Brandeis Uni-
versity in 1962 and was
subsequently appointed
professor of Near East-
ern studies there. He be-
came a member of the
Jewish Agency Execu-
tive in 1968.
Halpern's numerous arti-
cles, many of which were
published in Jewish Fron-

tier and Midstream maga-
zines deal chiefly with prob-
lems of Zionism, Israel
society and the role of the
Jews in United States
society.
His book, The Idea of the
Jewish State," published in
1969, traces the develop-
ment of Zionism both as an
ideology and a movement.
Morris Lieberman,
longtime chairman of His-
tadrut in Detroit, traced the
history of the organization.
According to Lieber-
man, the founders of the
Histadrut became the
leaders of Israel: David
Ben-Gurion, Moshe
Sharett, Golda Meir;
Zalman Shazar, Bebe
Idelson and Levi Eshkol.
The Histadrut anniver-
sary recalls the "struggle of
the Jewish worker in Pales-
tine for his rightful place
and share in the new Jewish
community . . . It was a long
struggle for the principle
that the Jewish people must'
be the ones to rebuild the
land."
Today, Histadrut is a

Israel's Inspiration for Youth
Described by Ex-Shaliakh

Reuven Leibovich, Is-
rael's cultural-aliya emis-
sary to Detroit, retired this
week after three years of
service and returned on
Thursday with his family to
Beersheva.
Returning with him are
his wife, Ronit, who taught
Hebrew at Temple
Emanu-El during their re-
sidence here, and their two
children.
Leibovich came here as
shaliakh to the Hebrew de-
partment of the Jewish
Community Center. He con-
tinued as the traditional as-
signee from Israel to Jewish
Center cultural activities,
representing the World
Zionist Organization and
for the past two years also as
the director of the aliya cen-
ter in Detroit.
During his stay here he
interviewed many hun-
dreds of applicants for
aliya, and in the three-
year period more than
300 left on aliya to the
Jewish state.
Of the considerable per-
centage of youth who went
on aliya, Leibovich ex-
plained, most were inspired
by earlier visits in Israel.
Such experience more than
any other were the inspira-
tions for their settlement,"
he said.
During his tenure here,
Leibovich organized and
attended many seminars at
Wayne State University,
the University of Michigan
and Michigan State Uni-
versity. He expressed con-
cern that in each instance,
of the three major univer-

trade union federation,
which has to its credit a
network of progressive edu-
cational institutions de-
voted to teaching the basic
tenets of Jewish cultural
heritage. Histadrut also
sponsors seminars, lectures,
extension courses and cul-
tural and recreational pro-
grams throughout Israel.
In Detroit, first with the
Palestine Workers' Fund
and the Gewerkshaften
Campaign, many Histadrut
functions have been sup-
ported, among them social
services, education institu-
tions, health services, rec-
reation and cultural centers
and residences for the el-
derly.
"Our greatest strength
has been the many
chaverim and chaverot of
our Labor Zionist move-
ment who have given of
themselves unstintingly
to the cause of Histadrut.
The numerous friends of
the Histadrut in America

can proudly look back
upon over 60 years of
cooperation with it in all
its undertakings and take
great satisfaction in their
ever-increasing share in
its achievements."
Cantor Louis Klein of
Cong. Bnai Moshe, will pre-
sent a musical program con-
sisting of Hebrew and Yid-
dish songs.
Refreshments will be
served, and the community
is invited.

sities in Michigan, the
youth response was mini-
mal.
Impressed by the general
Jewish community atti-
tudes in Metropolitan De-
troit, Leibovich's comment
that at most gatherings of
major importance
attendance was primarily
by the elder citizens, that
the youth were often few in
view. He said that the major
aims of a shaliakh from Is-
rael is to encourage youth
participation, and he ex-
pressed the hope that there
will be changes in that di-
rection.
Leibovich, `- no will as-
sume his forrAer post as
director of the Jewish
Center in Beersheva, was
six months old when he
was brought to Israel by
