Bar-Ilan Leader Asks
Detroit Jews For Support

SUSAN GRANT

ar-Ilan University's
new national exec-
utive vice president,
Yehudah Halevy, stopped in
Detroit this week to spread
the word about the Israeli
school.
Halevy, who rose to the
rank of brigadier general
after 27 years in the Israeli
army and spent the last six
years as the worldwide
Israel Bond Organization
president, was appointed to
his new position last month.
He will be responsible for
the university's activities in
the United States.
Halevy recognizes many
Detroit residents are strong
supporters of the university.
While only a handful of area
residents are graduates of
Bar-Ilan, the 35-year-old
university has received fi-
nancial support from Jewish
leaders here.
"In Israel a lot of people
respect the leadership of
Detroit," Halevy said. "The
Detroit campaign has given
life to Bar-Ilan. Detroit and

Bar-Han go together."
Yet, Halevy would like to
show more Detroit Jews
what Bar-Ilan, with its
12,000 students, has to offer.
He wants to convince sup-
porters that contributing
money to the university is
good for them.
He points to the research
work Bar-Han has done in
the medical field. A drug de-
veloped by Bar-Ilan staff to
treat Acquired Immune
Deficiency Syndrome is be-
ing used in several coun-
tries. The university also
has developed an experi-
mental device that can de-
tect cancer earlier than
thought possible.
As part of his job, Halevy
is working with American
businesses interested in
marketing Bar-Ilan's pro-
ducts.
Halevy also stressed the
university's role in resettl-
ing the 10,000 Soviet Jews
who arrive each month in
Israel.
"They are desperately
hungry for something Jew-
ish. I do believe we have a
major challenge to help
these people." ❑

No Aliyah Is Planned
For Cultural Center

ALAN HITSKY

Associate Editor

O

fficials of the Zionist
Organization of
America - Detroit
District are emphatic:
The Zionist Cultural
Center on Ten Mile, west of
Southfield Road, is not for
sale.
Rumors about the building
have been spreading in re-
cent months after the
Sephardic Community of
Greater Detroit made an un-
solicited offer to purchase
the facility. "We've been
meeting there for 15 years,"
said Sephardi board member
David Chicorel, "and we're
interested in finding a place
of our own."
The Sephardic Community
rents the cultural center for
its annual high holiday ser-
vices and rents a room at
Yeshiva Beth Yehudah for
Sunday morning services.
ZOD officials were em-
phatic that they have no
plans to sell the building,
which they purchased in
1965. A former church, the

property originally contain-
ed a house, which was sold
and torn down to make way
for an office building.
Ezekiel Leikin, ZOD exec-
utive director, said the
building is maintained
through income from rentals
of its hall. Jewish organiza-
tions which rent the facility
on a regular basis include
the B'nai B'rith Women's
Council, Radomer Aid Socie-
ty, the Mezeritcher organ-
ization, and Einstein, Bloch
and Louis-Marshall B'nai
B'rith groups.
The hall accommodates
150 persons and has a public
address system and a stage.
The building is operated
by a separate corporation,
whose officers are ZOD
members Judge Ira Kauf-
man, Dr. Alex Friedlaender,
Richard Bloom, Sidney
Silverman and David Dann.
Leikin said the ZOD has
been making voluntary con-
tributions to the corporation
in recent months to "take
care of different things"
after an income-producing
rental of the parking lot ex-
pired. El
