CONGREGATION BETH ACHIM

and

war Sadat Chair in Popula-
tion, Development and Peace
at the Center.
lb become a reality, the
Sadat Chair needs an endow-
ment of $2 million. To date,
about $325,000 has been
raised. The Chair is intended
to attract world-class scholars
who will teach and develop
research programs to aid in
the quest for peace and
development in the Middle
East.
Dr. Edward Azar, director of
the Center for International
Development and Conflict
Management, said the Sadat
Chair will also study "how
Sadat's incredible move to
make peace happened."
Also aiding in the creation
of the Chair are Canadian
Charles Bronfman,chairman
of the Seagram Company and
head of the CRB Foundation,
the world's largest Jewish
foundation; former Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger;
former Maryland senator
Joseph Tydings; television
personality Barbara Walters,
and actor Gregory Peck.

American people. Wherever I
go, I hear lovely things about
my husband. This makes my
stay here very, very pleasant.
People here have never forgot-
ten what he has done. But I
also love my country so much,
I cannot tell you. I miss
everything in my country.
Because of that, I am back
and forth."
Mrs. Sadat's fondness for
things Egyptian was evident
as she gave some prefatory
remarks before a recent
speech at the University of
Maryland on the legacy of her
husband. Standing at the
podium in a green tailored
suit with black piping and a
gold necklace medallion bear-
ing a profile of her husband,
Mrs. Sadat spoke softly about
about a four-day boat trip she
had just taken down the Nile.
"It was very peaceful," she
told the small audience. "The
