Open All Day Sunday

Yitzchak Modai, center, is welcomed to the Israel Bonds conference
by Sam Rothberg, left, international chairman, and Detroiter David
Hermelin,, national campaign chairman.

Delegates to last week's Israel
Bonds conference at the Hyatt
Regency Hotel in Dearborn
came away from the gathering
with a recharged enthusiasm for
selling Bonds and a good feeling
about Detroit's Jewish commu-
nity.
Ruth Merns of Ft. Lee, N.J.,
said she learned new methods
for selling Israel Bonds and
found the plenary sessions "a
valuable tool for our own corn-
munities." A worker on behalf of
Bonds for the past 15 years,
Merns said she has "strong feel-
ings for Israel" and that Bonds
are the "link to their (Israel's)
survival."
She complimented her Detroit
hosts for the warm reception she
received.
Stuart Simms, owner of a
Cleveland scrap iron and steel
company and a member of his
community's New Leadership
Division, said providing such a
forum for the exchange of ideas
was helpful. He said he found a
sense of comradeship among the
delegates, and learned that each
of the cities faced difficulties in
their campaign. His wife, Debra,
a mother and law student at
Cleveland State University,
came as a "tag-along," but left
with a desire to get involved in
promoting Israel Bonds.
"I'm going to go home and
contact the women's division in
Cleveland and become involved.
I got more out of this than my
husband."
The Simmses said they were
impressed by Detroit. "I find De-
troit a city that Cleveland can
start to emulate a little," Simms
remarked.
Susan Weikers of Philadel-
phia, national vice chairman of
special projects, said that in
meeting with Bond volunteers
from throughout the country, all
have the "same concerns, same
aims and same goals." She said
she "got bit and got the bug"
when she was a single working
woman.. She saw the benefit of
Bonds to working women and to
Israel, and from there became
active in promoting the sale of
Bonds to other women in the
workforce.

Hannah Alper of Montreal, a
marketing representative for
her family's real estate de-
velopment firm, said she came
as a "fledgling" as far as her
Bond affiliation went, but left
with a little more knowledge.
"The conference gave me an
opportunity to meet other people
and to share in their experi-
ences. It taught me how to raise
Bonds and share in their (other
delegates') commitment."
She said her interest in Bonds
came out of a visit to Israel and
from her family's "'Zionistic"

background and affiliation with
Jewish causes.
"It's something I really be-
lieve in. The commitment was
always there, but I didr•t know
how to get involved."
Asked if she was afraid to
come to Detroit, she said she
had "no hesitation."
The four-day conference was
the occasion for more than 300
delegates to learn new sales
techniques and share experi-
ences and discuss their prob-
lems.
The highlight of the confer-
ence was an address by Israel's
Finance Minister Yitzhak
Modai, who told the delegates
that Israel is performing "self-
surgery" on its economy in order
to put its financial house in or-
der.
Modai recalled how Israel, "a
poor country, with no mineral
resources, vast number of people
and no oil," absorbed millions of
refugees in less than one gener-
ation.
In the process of taking in
these immigrants, Israel also
