Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D. Mass.), receiving an award at a Histadrut dinner here Saturday night, commended the labor organization for sustaining and nourishing the character of Israel and inspiring leaders in every land “by its proud example of progress, reform and social conscience,” He also warned the 800 persons attending the Brooklyn Histadrut Council affair that “We can leave no doubt in the mind of any Soviet leader, no doubt in the mind of any Arab leader, that our commitment is absolute to the survival and freedom and future of Israel and her people.” The dinner honored Meade H. Esposito, Brooklyn Democratic leader, who was described by the Council as “a strong supporter” of Israel. Proceeds from the affair will go to the Brooklyn Histadrut Medical Center in Ramla.
