Philip Chasin, director of the Greater New York Committee for State of Israel Bonds for more than two decades, was honored for “forty years of service to the Jewish community,” at an Israel Bond dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria which resulted in sales of more than $1,700,000 in Israel Bonds. An audience of 360 Jewish communal, civic, religious and political leaders attended the tribute to Chasin Monday night.

Speakers included Yosef Tekoah, Ambassador of Israel to the United Nations; Michael Arnon, president and chief executive officer of the Israel Bond Organization; Jack D. Weiler, secretary-treasurer of State of Israel Bonds and dinner chairman; Stephen Shalom, general chairman of the Israel Bond drive in New York and other notables. Chasin was honored for his “executive leadership and a career of inspiring devotion to Israel.”
