Palestinian Heritage Foundation Celebrates 16th Anniversary


Adas, Jane, Washington Report on Middle East Affairs


On Sept. 13 the Palestinian Heritage Foundation held its 16th anniversary banquet in Teaneck, New Jersey. Some of the foundation's achievements of the past year include Palestinian costume shows, lectures, and exhibits in Montreal, Princeton, colleges in New Jersey, New York and Maryland, and in Canberra, Australia. It also contributed parts of its collection of traditional Palestinian clothing to the six-month exhibition on Arab Americans at the Museum of the City of New York, and has recently launched a Web site: .

She praised Maksoud as a champion of freedom and justice throughout the world.

His Eminence Metropolitan Philip Saliba, Primate of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of North America, said that, as one of the generation of Arabs that has seen defeat in every decade since the 1940s, he shares Maksoud's dream of a united Arab nation, established on democratic values, with no ruler and ruled, but a free people practicing their rights. …
