May 3 Celebration
Of Independence Day

647-8708

Members of Cong. B'nai
Moshe were sharing the glory
again last Shabbat with the
announcement that the Food
and Drug Administration had
approved the use of the drug
AZT in the treatment of
patients with AIDS (acquired
immune deficiency syn-
drome).
B'nai Moshe member Dr.
Jerome P. Horwitz, chairman
of the chemistry department
at the Michigan Cancer
Foundation, synthesized AZT
22 years ago in the hopes
that it would be useful in the
fight against cancer. The
drug was forgotten when that
hope did not materialize.
The drug was taken off the
shelf last year by Dr. Samuel
Broder at the National Insti-
tutes of Health in Maryland.
Coincidentally, Broder's par-
ents are members of B'nai
Moshe.
The two scientists have re-
ceived national media atten-
tion for their efforts with
AZT. Broder was featured in
a . front-page Wall Street
Journal article last year and
Horwitz was named one of
People magazine's "25 most
intriguing people of '86."
AZT is not a cure for AIDS,
but slows the AIDS virus, of-
fering hope to victims while
other research is being con-
ducted.
Dr. Horwitz and the Michi-

<

gan Cancer Foundation will
not receive any royalties from
AZT because they did not pa-
tent the drug 22 years ago.
But Horwitz has expressed
satisfaction that it is "offer-
ing hope to a lot of people."
Horwitz has been a
member of B'nai Moshe for
nearly 25 years, and has
served on the synagogue
board, as chairman of the
ushers' committee and in the
synagogue choir.
Local newspapers tried to
reach him Friday for com-
ment on the FDA announce-
ment, but were told that he
was out of town. Saturday
morning, however, he was in
his regular seat at the
synagogue, accepting con-
gratulations from the mem-
bers.

Samuel Havis
To Direct HBS

Samuel P. Havis was in-
stalled as president of the
Hebrew Benevolent Society
for 1987 at its recent general
board meeting.
An architect, Havis is affil-
iated with The American In-
stitute of Architects, Michi-
gan Society of Architects, Na-
tional Council of Architec-
tural Registration Boards,
