Bond Leaders Mark April 25th

A traumatic day on the
Jewish calendar, somberly
dispatched into recorded
history as a dramatic crav-
ing for peace, was marked
here with solemnity also as
a time for action.
Sunday, April 25, was oc-
casion for admonition to
Jewry that what has been
abandoned can be dupli-
cated as a measure of Is-
rael's strength by the de-
termined and dedicated will
of the Jewish people.
The history-making day
was occasion for reaffirma-
tion of this community's
interest in Israel and com-
mitment to efforts to assist
the Jewish state eco-
nomically at a gathering of
Israel Bond Organization
leaders at the home of Ruth
and Sam Rich, Sunday af-
ternoon. Hosting the
gathering were the son and
daughter-in-law of Mr. and
Mrs. Rich, Mr. and Mrs.
Ronald Rich.
An important message
to the gathering by Israel
Prime Minister Menahem
Begin, urging continued
support of the Israel
Bond efforts, was read to
the gathering by Ron
Rich.

The sacrifices made by Is-
rael in the withdrawal from
Sinai were enumerated by

the guest speaker, Nicholas
Lane, a member of the board
of governors of the National
Conference on Soviet
Jewry, who was a leader in
British Jewish ranks before
settling in Pittsburgh, Pa.,
four years ago. He stated
that the $20 billion cost of
erecting the settlements in
Sinai will now have to be
reconstructed for the
evacuated settlers, some of
them in Judea and Samaria.
He indicated that Israel
Bond investments will be
needed for that purpose and
therefore urged increased
support for investment ef-
forts through Israel Bonds.
D. Dan Kahn, who
presided, gave a thorough
analysis of achievements in
Israel with the aid of Israel
Bond funds and reported on
extensive responses to the
movement's appeals as an
indication that Metropoli-
tan Detroit Jewry is com-
mitted to unstinted support
for Israel.
William Cohen, the new
director of the Israel Bonds
Organization here, an-
nounced that a newly-
issued Israel Bond, the Var-
iable Rate Issue (VRI), is
available for purchase by
trustees for employee bene-
fit funds and union funds.
The new bond pays a
minimum of 71/2 per cent

interest plus halfthe excess,
if any, of the average prime
rate over 7 1/2 percent as de-
termined on April 1 and
Oct. 1 each year. The bond is
currently paying 12 per-
cent.
Initial subscription for
a VRI must be $25,000.
The bond matures in 12
Years. However, it can be
redeemed after three

years from the date of
purchase on 120-days
notice.
