BONDING WITH ISRAEL from page 21

invites the communit y to attend the

challenge. We thought Oslo would
bring a new era, but it did not. We
have a special responsibility to re-
educate ourselves and the next gener-
ation to understand our issues."
The risks for peace that Israel has
taken have been unprecedented, he
said. "We brought an organization
dedicated to our destruction from
thousands of miles away and armed
them in an effort to bring peace," he
said, characterizing Israeli actions
taken under the Oslo Accords.
Calling the American and Israeli
wars against terrorism "very similar,"
he said they were "not a fight over a
limited piece of territory, but against
groups who want to dismantle our
way of life."
"We must relearn the justice of our
positions. We will win the military
struggle, and we must also win the
ideological struggle I faced at the
U.N. and that we all face today.

Israel Bonds sold
$1.38 billion in
bonds last year.

Among the many heartfelt tributes
to the Rosenthals and voices for
Israel Bonds were Jewish Federation
of Metropolitan Detroit President
Lawrence Jackier and former presi-
dent Penny Blumenstein, Metro
Detroit Israel Bond Campaign co-
chairs Doreen Hermelin and
Lawrence Wolfe, Rabbis Irwin
Groner and Joseph Krakoff and din-
ner chair Hilary Isakow. But the
Rosenthal's daughters, Rachel and
Jennifer, made a special tribute.
"As young children, we knew we
were doing our tzedakah by allowing
our parents to do their tzedakah,"
Rachel said. "My Israel is hiking in
the Golan, tanning on the Tel Aviv
beaches and welcoming the Sabbath
at the Kotel [Western Wall]," she
said, her voice breaking with emo-
tion.
"For us, Israel is more than the
Jewish homeland; it is home and I
thank [my parents] for that."
Jennifer explained that her parents
had met on a blind date at a Three
Dog Night rock concert. She sang
them a tribute to the tune of "Joy to
the World." Earlier everyone had
joined in singing "Happy Birthday" in
celebration of Marta's birthday.
