Detroit Leaders Plan Events for Weizmann Jubilee Year
The Detroit Division of the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science
proudly joins with Jewish communities the world over to celebrate a joyful event in
Jewish history — the Jubilee Year in the life of this reknowned Institute of Science bear-
ing the name of its founder — Israel's statesman-scientist Chaim Weizmann.
This is an endeavor in which the Jewish community of Detroit can rejoice as an act
of renewal that carries forward the historic actions of its leaders who early-on shared
Doctor Weizmann's vision of a Jewish state in which Science would have a basic role in its
development and building.
Thanks to the generous support and early leadership provided by our own Marlene
and Paul Borman, Suzanne and Daniel Honigman, and Vivian and Louis Berry there

Professorial Chair in Applied Mathematics at the Weizmann Institute of
Science and honored the Borman's for their service to the Institute and the
stands today in Rehovot, Israel a campus that is a vibrant center of scientific learning,
research and development. The home of a faculty of world famous scientists, it has pro-
duced and reared generations of new scientists whose standards and achievements have
been of vital benefit to Israel's economy, to its defense and to the health and quality of
life for the men, women and children living within and beyond its boundaries.
Robert and Susan Sosnick assumed the leadership of the Detroit Division two years
ago and through their efforts the local Board of Directors has grown to fifty dedicated
men and women.
