Bernard Edelman, a prominent realtor in this city, has urged the planting of trees in Israel through the Jewish National Fund in memory of Ephraim Elrom, the Israeli Consul General who was murdered on May 22 in Istanbul by Turkish terrorists. In a paid advertisement in the latest issue of the Detroit Jewish News, Edelman expressed shock and “agonizing dispenser” of the kidnaping and murder of the Israeli official. “He gave his life,” Edelman stated in the advertisement. “I respectfully suggest that all of us respond by planting trees in Israel in his memory.”
