Calling
everywhere to unite "for the
preservation of the Jewish
people and the state of Is-
rael," industrialist-
philanthropist Max M.
Fisher accepted the Justice
Louis D. Brandeis Award of
the Zionist Organization of
America at its national
executive committee lunch-
eon Sunday at the Ramada
Hotel in Southfield.
Upon accepting the
award, Fisher issued a
warning to Jews to be vigil-
ant about prospects for
peace in the Middle East.
"We have to be on guard. We
can't take anything for
granted in the future," he
said. In his call for Jewish
unity he added that in order
to reach that goal "divisive-
ness in Israel must be re-
ctified and healed."
He lauded the work of the
ZOA and urged the enlist-
ing of youth to carry on the
programs established by the
organization.
Israel Consul General for
the Midwest Emanuel Zip-
pori, substituting for the
scheduled speaker, Israel
Ambassador to the U.S.
Meir Rosenne, spoke of the
current state of relations
between the U.S. and Israel,
saying that relations be-
tween the two countries
have improved in the past
year.
But despite the good rela-
tions enjoyed by the two
countries, he added that the
Middle East was still a
hotbed of turmoil. "The area
is still far from quiet," he
said, and listed the current
