Betty Starkman with a small bust of
Theodor Herzl that her great-grandfather
kept on his desk in Israel, as well as her
family's Kiddush cups that came from
Poland to pre-state Israel and then to
the U.S.

into Israel," Starkman says.
On Nov. 29, 1947, the day of the
United Nations partition vote on
Palestine, Starkman vividly recalls, "we
all sat with bated breath as the vote
came in for Israel statehood. My father
had made up a big sheet where he
could mark off who was for and
against partition. When the U.S. voted
[yes], a big cheer went up.
"The next day, sound trucks came
along Dexter Avenue and told every-
one to go to the football field at
Central High School to celebrate. We
played Hatikvah' and danced the
hora. There was laughter and tears. It
was joyous day."
— Don Cohen, special writer

reporter, [Editor] Philip Slomovitz got
me a press pass to help me get in," she
recalls.
But it didn't help. "The place was
mobbed. There were thousands of
people out on the street around the
building. It was very thrilling, though
we didn't get in."
The next year, the teletype machine
rang in the Jewish News offices.
"Whenever it rang no one else knew
what to do so they got me,"
Greenberg says. "I remember being
the first in the office to find out that
the anniversary of the establishment of
the Israel would be called Yom
HaAtzmaut and how it would be cele-
brated in Israel that year.
"It is a very important holiday," she
adds. "It will be a miracle if Israel will
have peace, but we must remember
that the State of Israel itself is a mira-
cle."
