Detroit Jewry Mobilized
To Aid Israel; Dedicate
This Sabbath for Action
Ask Immediate Allied Jewish Campaign Payments; Israel
Bond Sales Must Reach $2,000,000 Here Within a Week
ZUCKERMAN HEADS ISRAEL EMERGENCY FUND
Fortifying this community's message to Israel that the
embattled Israelis will not be let down by Detroit Jewry in this
crisis and in the struggle for the state's survival, congregational
and community leaders mobilized all forces here to secure the
financial aid necessary to assure Israel's subsistance and to keep
its industries functioning.
Taking serious measures to guarantee that the Israelis will
not be handicapped for lack of food supplies, and that the vital
industrial plants should not be forced to halt their normal opera-
tions, a two-way program of action has been instituted : a strong
effort to secure large additional sums for the United Jewish
Appeal's Israel Emergency Fund through the Allied Jewish
Campaign, and increased activities for the sale of Israel Bonds
which provide for the Jewish State's activities outside military
The services in all synagogues this Saturday will be de-
voted to appeals for these two purposes and requests will be
made for immediate payments of pledges made to the Allied

Phillip Stollman, chairman of the annual Israel Bond dinner

through the Israel Emergency Fund set up nationally on Sunday
by the United Jewish Appeal.
"We are calling on all friends of Israel, Jew and non-Jew
alike, to step forward with a contribution to ease the hardship
that its people are now facing," Safran said. "The women, the
children, the old people, all of whom are suffering because of
the cut-off of government participation in welfare programs for
immigrants or because the breadwinner is now in the armed ser-
vices, need our help.
"Many of the people in Israel are those who all too recently
have known unspeakable horror and persecution, and are just
now beginning to make a place for themselves in a homeland.
We cannot let these people suffer more."
Safran said that every penny which is contributed to the
Israel Emergency Fund' would go immediately overseas. Funds

Israel's valorous army has routed enemies on several fronts . . . Egypt's military forces,
superior in number, supported by 900 tanks and an air force larger than Israel's have been
