goal.
Some 780 persons filled
the Morris Adler Hall of
Cong. Shaarey Zedek to
honor Slomovitz, editor and
publisher of The Jewish
News and a dean of Ameri-
can Jewish journalists.
Their presence at what was
described as the largest
Bar-Ilan dinner ever held
outside Israel contributed to
the goal of endowing a chair
to "combat the misinforma-
tion of which Israel is often
the target."
Rabbi
Emanuel
Rackman, president of
Bar-Ilan, led the tributes to
Slomovitz, his nearly 70
years in Jewish journalism

Phillip Stollman, left, and Dr. Leon Fill place the
hood of a Doctor of Humane Letters on Philip
Slomovitz at Tuesday's Bar-Han dinner. At right;

Laker looks on.

and his championing of
Jewish and humanitarian
causes.
Dr. Rackman equated
his university with
Slomovitz, saying its
purpose was to build
bridges: "between the
past of the Jewish people
and the future of the
Jewish people, between
generations of the Jewish
family."
Dr. Rackman listed the
numerous Bar-Ilan pro-
grams aiding senior citizens
and Israel's Sephardi com-
munity. He equated the
university's goals with
Slomovitz's "nearly 70
years of battles, of trying to
create understanding, of
educating."
Following the conferral of
the honorary doctorate in
an academic convocation
complete with caps and
gowns, Slomovitz thanked
the audience for helping to
initiate the chair in com-
munications. He said the
chair would "help the
battles of Jewish life, for
there is always a battle."
He said he has always
tried to warn-his fellow
Jews against two great sins:
the sin of silence and the sin
of panic. He said the chair in
communications at Bar-
Dan will help insure that
. "non-Jews will not misin-
".terpret us and that Jews
will know the facts."
In reference to the up-
coming vote in Congress
on the proposed sale of
AWACS radar planes to
Saudi . Arabia, Slomovitz
warned that many Jews
are frightened and will
panic-no matter which
way the AWACS issue is
resolved. "These are
conditions that demand
that we be awakened," he

said, "that not only our
generation responds."
The dinner opened with a
surprise tribute to Mr. and
Mrs. Max (Frieda)
Stollman, founders of Bar-
Ilan and members of its
global board of trustees. Dr.
and Mrs. Martin (Sharon)
Hart paid tribute to their
aunt and uncle, the
Stollmans, and presented
them with a sculpture on
behalf of the Bar-Ilan fam-
ily on the occasion of their
50th wedding anniversary.
Mrs. Stollman is
president of American
Women for Bar-Ilan and
Mrs. Hart, as president of
the Detroit women's chap-
ter, presented a report on
the Detroit chapter's ac-
complishments in the one
year of its existence. -
Some 350 Detroiters have
joined the Detroit women's
unit and $5,000 was raised
for the Bar-Ilan library.
Phillip Stollman,
chairman of the global
board and a founder of
Bar-Han, paid tribute to
Philip and Anna
Slomovitz by reminding
the audience that the De-
troit Jewish community
gives the most per capita
to Jewish causes of any
community in the U.S.
"and much of the credit is
due to the Slomovitzes.
This is - the finest tribute
that we can give to them."
Stollman also credited
the dinner's general chair-
men,. Irving Laker and
Myron Milgrom, for making
the program "the finest ever
held under the auspices of
Bar-Ilan."
Other participants in the
program included Rabbi
Irwin Groner and Cantor
Chaim Najman of Shaarey
Zedek.
