Former Detroiters Zelda
Bensman Hamburger and her
husband Rabbi Yosssi Ham-
burger of Jerusalem have re-
ceived interest-free loans from
the Associations of Parents of
American Israelis through
Americans and Canadians in Is-
rael, organizations that give
economic relief as well as sup-
port to olim. The couple immig-
rated to Israel seven years ago.
The couples' third child,
Menachem, eight months, has
rhabdomyosarcoma, a form of
cancer. The disease was spotted
quickly and the prognosis is
good. The medical bills, includ-
ing recent surgery performed at
Hadassah Hospital, were
covered by Israel's national
health insurance. But the couple
is responsible for care outside
In order to keep the baby free
of germs, taxis must be used to
transport the child to the hospi-
tal. Private nursing care is also
required, as is a larger home to
separate the older children from
the sick infant.
Because of the child's condi-
tion, Mrs. Hamburger had to
leave her job, leaving her hus-
band, a teacher, bringing in an
income of $400 a month.
Due to the recent death of
Mrs. Hamburger's mother, and
her unplanned return to Michi-
gan, the family is left in worse
financial condition. The boy re-
mains in Israel, where he re-
ceives chemotherapy and drug
treatments, which will continue
for the next 1'W2-2 years.
Despite these problems, the
couple intends to remain in Is-
rael. "I love Israel," Mrs. Ham-

The annual dinner of the De-
troit Friends for Bar-Han Uni-
versity will be held Sept. 10 at
Cong. Shaarey Zedek.
Donald Fox and Paul Zlotoff,
general chairmen, said the
dinner will mark Bar-Ilan's 30th
academic year. Guest speaker
will be Senator Joseph R. Biden,
Jr. (D-Del.), member of the Se-
nate Foreign Relations Commit-
tee and a strong supporter of the
State of Israel. Yossi Harel, a
Bar-Ilan alumnus doing ad-
vanced graduate work at the
University of Michigan, will ad-
dress the dinner about the im-
portance of the Hechtman
Heroes Road, Bar-Ilan's barrier-
free system for university stu-
dents who have become perma-
nently disabled as a result of
war-related injuries. Harel is a
former Bar-Han student and a
former paratroop officer.
The Hechtman Heroes Road is
the most recent project at Bar-
Ilan that has been sponiored by
Detroiters. The Bar-Han - De-
troit association began several
years before the actual founding
of the university, and has led to
the creation of a great number
of physical factilities, as well as
academic projects at the school.
