Mediterranean-to-Dead Sea Canal Plans
Gain Support at Bond Fete for Dorfman

Plans for the develop-
ment of the energy-
providing Mediterranean-
to-Dead Sea Canal gained
encouragement from in
vestments in Israel Bonds,
announced at the dinner
honoring Henry Dorfman
on Sunday evening at Cong.
Shaarey Zedek.
A number of record-
breaking factors were in
evidence at this event. The
more than 600 in
attendance made it one of
the largest in numbers of
participants. The total of
more than $3 million in Is-
rael Bond subscriptions also
marked it as an event of im-
portance for the movement.
Supplementing the ad-
dress of the guest speaker,
former Israel Ambassador
to the U.S. Simha Dinitz,
were the encomia by the
Shaarey Zedek leadership,
the tribute dinner having
been sponsored by the
synagogue with which the
Dorfman family is affil-
iated.
David Hermelin, -na-
tional co-chairman of Is-
rael Bonds, having a
major role on the pro-
gram, announced that
more than 30 Detroiters
have been enrolled in the
group of 400 throughout
the land who have al-
ready purchased
$100,000 each towards
the planned canal proj-
ect.
Rabbi Irwin Groner, in
the address of tribute, paid
honor to Dorfman as a man
who rose above deep despair
to become an important per-
sonality in the Jewish
community and in industry
despite the sufferings
entailed during the
Holocaust.
He described the miseries
suffered by the victims of
Nazism and the agonies to
which Dorfman was sub-
jected, and he acclaimed the
courage with which
Dorfman overcame the
pains and made a dignified
and productive future for
himself in this country.
Harvey Weisberg,
president of Shaarey Zedek,
joined in honoring Dorfman
and his family.
Dorfman's address of
reply and acknowledge-
ment of the State of Israel
Bonds 30th Anniversary
Silver Medal was to de-
clare his faith in America.
Reaffirming his devotion
and his dedication to Is-
rael and Jewish causes,
he said he gloried in his
American life, based on
three principles: Hope,
Trust and Determination,
which enabled him to
achieve his goals in this
country.
The Dorfman's son, Joel,
gave' the invocation. Par-
ticipants in the program in-
cluded Cantor Chaim Naj-
man and Cantor . Sidney

Irving Laker presided at
the event and joined in
applauding the communal
contributions of the hon-
oree.
U.S. Senator Donald
Riegle added to the com-
mendations for Dorfman.
State Senator Doug Ross
presented Dorfman with a
citation from the Legisla-
ture. There was a message
of a special resolution hon-
oring him, introduced by
Detroit City Council
President Erma Henderson.
Dorfman also was pre-
sented with a U.S. flag
that was flown over the
Capitol in Washington,
received for him from
Congressman James
Blanchard.
In his principal address,
Dinitz spoke of the gloom

that presently affects Is-
rael's status. He analyzed
the latest Saudi "peace
plan," demolishing the idea
that it is either one of peace
or that it is a plan for action.
He traced its source to a
Russian proposal in 1967
and he reminded the audi-
ence that the U.S. then re-
jected it.
He emphasized there is
unity in Israel in opposition
to the efforts to undermine
Israel's existence and he de-
clared that by standing, by
acting together, Israel and
her friends will successfully
defy any attempt to harm
the state.

of the United Jewish
Charities, announced a
