THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Blanchard, Theater Magnates
Add to the Honors for Ivan Bloch

Ivan Bloch, recipient of
the State of Israel Peace
Award as the year's Cong.
Shaarey Zedek Israel Bonds
honoree, was accorded un-
precedented recognition for
services that assumed a na-
tional scale.
At the annual event held
at the synagogue Nov. 17,
tributes arrived from theat-
rical magnates who
acclaimed Bloch for his in-
terest in sponsoring new
Broadway productions.
Government and state offi-
cials showed gratitude for
his social-political-ideologi-
cal identifications.
So extensive is the recog-
nition of Bloch's interest in
government and his role in
advocating progressive ac-
tions statewide and nation-
ally, that Governor James
Blanchard made a surprise
appearance at the Israel
Bond dinner in Bloch's
honor and delivered an ad-
dress indicating his friend-
ship.
Governor Blanchard
said his participation in
the event was both to em-
phasize his support for
Israel and the Jewish
state's aims to advance
peace, and to show his
high regard for the
event's honoree who
gives so much in support
of Israel and socially-
motivated causes.
The high regard for Bloch
became apparent when he
and Mrs. Bloch were wel-
comed upon their arrival in
the synagogue's social hall
by Attorney General and
Mrs. Frank Kelly, Secret-
ary of State and Mrs.
Richard Austin and scores
of state and local leaders
from both the Jewish and
non-Jewish communities.
The recognition of Bloch's
services became apparent
also in telegraphed mes-
sages from Congressional
leaders and a special mes-
sage from Michigan Con-
gressman Bob Carr which
was accompanied by a
$5,000 Israel Bond sub-
scription.
Yosef Tekoah, president
of Ben-Gurion University of
the Negev and former Israel
ambassador to the United
Nations, served the double
role as guest speaker and in
sharing with Rabbi Irwin
Groner the duties of pre-
senting the Peace Award to
Ivan Bloch.
Tekoah gave a scho-
larly resume of the Mid-
dle East situation, Is-
rael's continued adher-
ence to principles in-
volved in assuring sec-
urity for state and people.
He gave emphasis to the
importance of the Ameri-
can friendship and the
Jewish devotions even
under most difficult con-
ditions.

devotion,
"Jewish
brotherhood and her heart
are the vital factors in the
partnership with Israel,"
Tekoah declared in urging
uninterrupted Israel Bonds
support and other means of
aiding Israel.

Shown at the Shaarey Zedek Israel Bond dinner
are, from left, seated, Rabbi Irwin Groner, Linda and
Honoree Ivan Bloch, and Ambassador Yosef Tekoah.
Standing are D. Dan Kahn, Cantor Chaim Najman,
Irving Laker, William Davidson, David Hermelin and
David Holtzman.

On that score, the report
by the national chairman of
the Israel Bonds Organiza-
tion, David Hermelin of De-
troit, who also conducted
the enrollment of Bond pur-
chasers, was an important
element in the dinner prog-
ram. Hermelin took pride in
reporting that $5 million in
Bond purchases set a high
record for the dinner and for
pro-Israel activities.
Rabbi Irwin Groner's ad-
dress of tribute took into ac-
count the many services by
Ivan Bloch to the commun-
ity, to the synagogue, to
Jewish causes on all fronts.
Highlighting the event
was the response by
Bloch. It was an eloquent
personal account of
Jewish loyalties and in its
extensive form served as
a communal document in
which he spoke about the

teachings learned from
parents and grand-
parents, his personal de-
votions and the sincerity
with which his own fam-
ily pursues the ideals to
which he is dedicated. It
was an expression of les-
sons well learned and a
heritage shared by his
children.

Irving
Laker,
as
toastmaster, gave guidance
to a program, judged as a
highlight in activities here
in Israel's support.
Program participants in-
cluded Cantors Chaim
Najman and Sidney Rube;
Rabbi Lee Paskind; William
M. Davidson, who spoke
briefly welcoming the 340
guests; and D. Dan Kahn,
local Israel Bonds chair-
man, who also greeted the
guests.
