Haifa University Enrolls More Support
Under Louis Golden's Leadership Here

Scores of new supporters
of Haifa University were
enrolled here through the
efforts of the Detroit Chap-
ter of American Friends of
Haifa University, at the
fourth annual Golf Day of
the chapter which was fol-
lowed by the annual par-
ticipants' dinner, Tuesday
evening, at Shenandoah
Golf and Country Club.
Louis H. -Golden, Detroit
chapter organizer and its
chairman, outlined the pro-
gress achieved at the uni-
versity, in his call for in-
creased support of the uni-
versity.
A report on his recent
visit to the university and
his Israel tour was given
by Maurice Chandler.
Supplementing these ad-
dresses, Sister Carol Ritt-
ner, who has enrolled as a

Haifa University supporter
upon the founding of the De-
troit chapter, spoke on the
school's progress as she ob-
served it on her recent visit
which included a tour of Is-
rael occupied areas in
Lebanon.
Golden and his associates
took occasion to indicate
that of the 7,000 students at
Haifa University 600 are
Arabs, thus emphasizing Is-
raeli aims to strive for good
relations with all non-Jews
and with neighbors.
Sister Carol called the
educational opportunities
provided for Arabs on an
equal basis with Jews proof
of the democratic spirit of
Israel.
Golden's pioneering ef-
forts were acclaimed in
messages university
supporters received from

Israel. The manner in
which the Detroit leader
in behalf of Haifa Univer-
sity assumed his role as
delineated by Haifa Uni-
versity administrators as
follows:
Golden's roots to Haifa
University go back to his
grandparents, who settled
in Afula, near Haifa, in
1935 (and are buried in that
vicinity). His grandfather
and father purchased land
in Balfouria, under the
Jewish Colonial Trust, in
1919 — and were both
lifelong Zionists.
In coming to Israel, vist-
ing his family's memorial
sites and now working
closely with Haifa Univer-
sity, he fulfilled a promise to
his family to return to Zion
and .not to forget his heri-
tage.

WILLIAM BRODHEAD

Shaarey Zedek, and will
discuss his recent trip to the
Soviet Union and the plight
of Soviet Jews.
Brodhead and his party
met with 40 refusniks on
visits to Moscow and Lenin-
grad and were harassed by
the Soviet secret police dur-
ing their trip. They sent
photographs back to the
U.S. via diplomatic pouch so
that they would not be con-
fiscated by the KGB upon
departure.
Among the persons
Brodhead met with were
the mother and brother ANATOLY SHCHARANSKY
of Anatoly Shcharansky.
Shcharansky, a leading tented to prison on
member of the human trumped-up charges of
rights and Soviet Jewry anti-Soviet actions and
movements, was sen- spying for the U.S. He has
not been permitted to re-
ceive letters or visits from
his family since January.
In failing health,
Shcharansky is now jailed
in the notorious Chistopol
Prison. To dramatize his
plight he is now on a hunger
strike which began on Yom
Kippur.

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
Jewish population of some
100,000 will dominate the
West Bank in three years if
the present birth rate con-
tinues, according to a study
nearing completion by Dr.
Meron Benvenisti, former
deputy mayor of Jerusalem.
Bevenisti found that con-
trary to popular belief, the
natural rate of increase
among Palestinian Arabs in
the territory is lower than
the birth rate of Jews inside
Israel proper. The study was
financed by grants from
City University of New
York's Institute for Middle
East Peace and Develop-
ment.

After a spirit of discern-
ment, the next rarest things
in the world are diamonds
and pearls.

Temple Israel InauguMtes
Caring Community' Project

One of seven families who
founded Temple Kol Ami in
1966, Golden is also active
in many community proj-
ects and has served as a
treasurer of the Oakland
County Democratic Party.
In 1980, Golden re-
ceived the annual Mt.
Carmel Award of Merit
from the university "for
his unstinting efforts on
behalf of the University
of Haifa."
Last May, Golden inau-
gurated the Louis H. Golden
Cafeteria at the university.

Dr. Richard Traitel, clini-
cal psychologist, has been
appointed chairman of a
new committee of Temple
Israel called the "Caring
Community."
The aim of the committee
is to respond positively to
the needs of its membership
by involving congregants
who will support and care
for one another.
A pilot project, which
commenced just prior to the
High Holy Days, has been
providing bus transporta-
tion to and from temple

religious services. The pro-
gram will continue
throughout the year on the
first and third Fridays of
each month.
In announcing the proj-
ect, Shirley Fink, temple
president, advised that the
Caring Community Com-
mittee is also planning
other senior citizen activi-
ties, has started a "helpful
hints" directory of commu-
nity services and will soon
begin exploring the special
needs of single parent
families.

WINTERIZE

BONN (JTA) — Justice
Minister Juergen Schmude
of the Social Democratic
Party has drafted legisla-
tion to tighten laws against
neo-Nazi activities in West
Germany.
The proposed legislation,
which has been discussed in
a Bundestag subcommit-
tee, calls for empowering
state prosecutors to bring to
trial any person who denies
publicly that the Holocaust
occurred or that the Nazis
committed genocide. It
would also ban the import
and distribution of Nazi
emblems and other prop-
aganda material in the
country.
The legislation does not
include a ban on the distri-
bution and sale of Nazi
books and records which
originated in Nazi Ger-
many, such as Hitler's
"Mein Kampf." A proposed
ban on such material was
dropped following protests
by scientists and aca-
demicians that it would
curb research.
