SHAMIR, accompanied by
Israeli Defense Minister
Moshe Arens, was to have a
working luncheon with the
President at the White House
Tuesday. He was also to be a
guest that evening at a dinner
hosted by Vice President
George Bush. The two Israelis
were scheduled to meet with
Secretary of State George
Shultz and Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger. Donald
Rumsfeld, Reagan's special
envoy to the Middle East,
returned from his first visit to
that region to take part in the
meetings this week.
Herzog, who ended his 10-
day visit to the U.S. recently,
was not at the White House on
a State visit, since he came to
the U.S. principally to address
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions Generql Assembly in At-
lanta and the United Nations
General Assembly in New
York. He did not therefore re-
ceive the ceremonial honors
that were Riven Shamir when
he arrived at the White House
exactly one week later.
The Herzog visit, at a time
of increasing cooperation be-
tween Israel and the U.S. is
also in contrast to the similar
visit Herzog's predecessor,
President Yitzhak Navon,
made to Reagan last January.
At that time, relations between
Washington and Jerusalem
were at a low ebb. Some
Administration officials saw
the warm welcome accorded
Navon as a way to help those
in Israel who were building up
the then President as a
possible Labor opponent to
then Premier Menachem
Earlier, Herzog received an
honorary doctorate of humane
letters from Georgetown
University, the oldest Catholic
university in the U.S. In his
address there, he warned that
"democracy is on the wane"
throughout the world and
stressed the need for
preserving its values shared by
Israel and the U.S.

Arens: No Concessions
Falwell Questions Reagan Peace Initiative
lerry Falwell, leader of the
Vloral Majority, has predicted
here that the Reagan Admin-
istration would "moderate"
its call for a freeze of Israeli
settlements on the West Bank
and its support of Palestinian
self-rule in the territory, linked
to Jordan.
Those are key elements of
the peace plan announced by
President Reagan on
September 1, 1982. The Ad-
ministration has stated re-
peatedly since then that it
stands by the plan which was
totally rejected by Israel at the
time and failed to induce
either Palestinians or Jordan
to enter negotiations with
FALWELL, a strong
supporter of Reagan, told a
JERRY FALWELL: thunder in Jerusalem
press conference here that
while he is "the best President
in my lifetime," he disagreed
with his formula for a peaceful
settlement of the Palestinian
problem. "There is no way
that Israel can surrender so
much of its real estate (the
West Bank and Gaza) to
hostile forces and hope to re-
main free Anyone
intimately familiar (with Mid-
dle Eastern affairs) cannot
agree with that," Falwell
The Moral Majority, a coa-
lition of right-wing evangelical
Christians in the U.S., was
holding a convention here.
The 630 delegates were ad-
dressed by Defense Minister
Moshe Arens who stated flatly
that Israel would make no
concessions whatever on the
West Bank. He said the U.S.
should back Israel's position
on the territories.
"If the U.S. wants Israel to
be strong and I know that it
does it must understand
that Israel cannot be strong if
these areas (West Bank and
Gaza) are cut off from the
territory controlled bv the
State of Israel," Arens said.
HE SAID that those who
contend that Israeli conces-
sions would relieve it of some
of the burdens of defense
"simply do not know whom
we are dealing with here in the
Mideast" where "hostility is
endemic to the area."

Premier Yitzhak Shamir to
Washington for a meeting
with President Reagan Tues-
day, said, "(We) are going

Dora Roth Speaks
Eloquently For Jews, Israel
Assistant News Coordinator
It is of great importance to
Dora Roth to make people
aware that "every dollar that
goes to Israel is another smile
of a Jewish child." For Dora,
who is in South Florida for
several weeks as a Federation
United Jewish Appeal fund-
raiser, the smiles of Jewish
children translate into the sur-
vival of a people, her people.
As a victim of Nazi barbarism
during her teen years, she
knows firsthand the vital
necessity of building a strong
Jewish State.
Dora was born in Poland to
a very Zionistic family. Her
father, revealed to the Nazis as
a Jewish journalist, was shot

family in a ghetto until it was
destroyed in 1942. Dora, her
sister and mother were
separated from her brother
and sent to one of the worst
extermination camps, Stuthof.
"My mother died from
hunger," Dora relates. "She
gave her last crust of bread to
me. My sister died in the gas
chamber. At the age of 11, I
was left to struggle by myself.
I was a good-looking little girl.
Once I was standing in line,
waiting to enter the gas
chamber. The German guard
looked at me and said, 'This
rotten Jewish child what
beautiful eyes she has. She
doesn't need to die yet.' He
pulled me out of line.
"Since my character was to
fight, I did survive, but I don't
know how. I was hungry,
thirsty, beaten up a few times.
In 1945 the Germans knew
they were beaten but didn't
want to leave a camp filled
with Jews, so they did all they
could to make the end quicker.
If, a year before, we had been
receiving a water ration and
soup and a piece of bread once
a day, at the end they cut
everything. We got water once
a week, but there was snow we
could melt to drink.
"I had a dream in the
concentration camp. I dreamt
I would catch Hitler when the
war was over and put him in a
cage which was surrounded by
wonderful food bananas and
oranges and chocolate. He
would not be able to reach it. I
would take the cage all over
the world and change the
food, making it better and
better, and he would look at
this and slowly die from
"On the day of liberation,
most of the remaining women
prisoners were shot. I was shot
twice in the back. The Rus-
sians entered the camp, and I
was taken to an army hospital
where I was operated on. A
few days later I was moved to
a civilian hospital where I
spent the next seven months,
undergoing three more opera-
tions. I had also developed
lung disease from the hunger.
"The American Joint
Distribution Committee had
opened a hospital for sur-
vivors in Italy. I was brought
there and stayed for two and a
half years."
After Roth regained her
health, she studied to be a
registered nurse. She wanted
to live and work in Israel. She
made Aliyah to Israel in 1952,
married a gynecologist, and
had two children. After 26
years of marriage, her
husband died of leukemia.
After his death, she studied
public relations at the Univer-
sity of Haifa. For the past four
years she has been a liaison
between depressed Israeli
neighborhoods and American
communities. She has also
raised funds for the Associa-
tion of Soldiers' Welfare
which teaches illiterate soldiers
how to read and write.
Roth speaks eloquently of
the need for Project Renewal
to upgrade the distressed,
mostly Sephardic. neighbor-
hoods in Israel. "I don't know
if American Jews know how
important it is for Israel. The
people in the Project Renewal
towns have the highest birth
rate. There is little Aliyah to
Israel in the last few years

Florida ADL Blasts Bigotry
In Trial Of Attorney Heller
The Florida Regional Office
of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith this
week deplored what it calls
"prejudicial remarks based
upon religion" in the recent
trial of Miami Attorney Daniel
Neal Heller.
The ADL called the remarks
a "grievous injury to the crim-
inal justice system" and said
that the remarks "infected the
judicial process and contami-
nated the fair administration
of justice."
The ADL statement de-
clares, in full:
"The Florida Regional Of-
fice of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith ex-
presses its profound concern
over the grievous injury to the
criminal justice system which
resulted from several prejudi-
cial remarks based upon reli-
gion and race by some jurors
involved in the recent Federal
trial of Daniel Heller.
"We take no position re-
garding the ultimate Finding of
guilt or innocence of Daniel
Heller. However, it is clear
from disclosures on the record
of the trial that statements by
jurors infected the judicial
process and contaminated the
fair administration of justice.

treatment for all citizens alike,

Finds the expressions of
bigotry by certain members of

blow to the concept of equal

"Our system of justice is
predicated on the right of

corrupting effect of religious
and racial bigotry. This trial
by jury failed in its sacred
mandate to impartiality."

He said however that Israel

called American "even-

democracy and dictatorship."
Referring to the truck-bomb

theme, Arens noted that in the
past, the U.S. kept its co-
operation with Israel at a rel-

pursue an even-handed policy
in the region. It was "heart-

rages" were necessary to bring
home the true nature of the
West's adversaries in the Mid-
dle East, he said.
He urged Americans not to
take lightly the threats of
suicide attacks against U.S.,

Lebanon made over the week-
end by Hussein Mussawi,

Voices of Soviet Jewish Women'
A Mother Appeals For Her Daughter
The following is part of a
letter dated March 16, from
Mrs. Sheina Fridkina in Israel
in which she repeats the story
of her daughter Fanya Kroitor
and calls for help.
I'm writing to you with a
very heavy heart hoping that
after reading this letter you
will be able to help us.
On May 20, 1977, I arrived
in Israel. My elder daughter,
Fanya Kroitor, together with
her husband David and their
daughter Luba were to follow
shortly. When we filled out
our documents before leaving
the Soviet Union we empha-
sized that we were one family
and that the Kroitorswould be
submitting visa applications
too. As my son-in-law's father
was then hospitalized for a
heart attack, he could not
leave the USSR. Once we had
been granted visas, David was
drafted into the army for two
Just then, my granddaugh-
ter, who had turned three
years old, was found to have a
heart defect, and doctors re-
commended that she undergo
an operation. My daughter re-
fused this as no one from the
family was with her; we are al-
ready in Israel and her hus-
band was in the army and
not exposed to any secrets.
As soon as David was re-
leased from the army in 1979,
the family applied for exit
visas to Israel. After waiting a
long time for an answer, they
were refused. My daughter
was in a state of shock; she
was even admitted to the hos-
pital. She was then dismissed
from her job as a music teach-
er, and her husband was also
dismissed from his work. The
family was left in a critical
state and I helped as much as I

law and justice," Herzog said.
"Perhaps the outstanding
aspect of Jewish civilization is
its inherent justice and the fact
that the concept of justice
occupies paramount place in
its principles."
He said these principles are
being maintained by the few
democracies left in the world
while "they are daily trampled
in derision and disdain in the
United Nations." He added
that "It is precisely those who
have totally abandoned the
principles given by the Jewish
people to the world in their
national and international
practice who now would sit in
judgment on Israel."
Herzog pointed out that 17
percent of Israel's population
is made up of Arabs. "Giva
the problems which we hut
faced during the last 35,._
and the fact that a numberi
Arab countries continue
maintain a state of war
Israel, the condition of
Arab population, which it
loyal and integral pan oft
society, is perhaps the grei
tribute to our free
democratic society,"
Herzog added that "wei
boast the only free Arab |
in the Mideast," the
society in the Mideast wb
Arabs can appeal politic
decisions to the courts and1
am the only head of
the Mideast who feels se
enough to stroll freely throuj
our cities with a large An
population, and does so."

Never let it be said that the Jewish commu-
nity in Glasgow is a quiet one. There are nine
shuls, two Hebrew schools and five youth orga-
nizations. And if you think all this activity is
enough to make headlines, you're right.
Because Glasgow even has a weekly newspaper
which records and celebrates the vanous
marriages, births and bar mitzvahs!
Reading this good news is apt to bring more
than just a smile to one's lips. Quite
often it brings the taste of fine scotch
whisky to one's lips, too. In America,
such news is often greeted with J&.B
Rare Scotch. Its flavor, created by
skillful blending perfected over the
centuries, has made it this country's
most popular scotch. And, if we may
be permitted a bit of editorializing,
has amply justified its reputation as
the scotch that whispers.

Refusenik Granted Visa
Eitan Finkelstein and his
family have finally been
granted exit visas, 12 years
after applying for them, it was
reported here. They will be
leaving their home in Vilnius
for Israel this month.
Finkelstein, a physicist and
Jewish activist, applied to
emigrate with his family in
1971 and was repeatedly
denied permission to leave.
Since then, he has been
working on menial jobs after
having been dismissed from
his job as a physicist. During
the 12 years he also devoted
his spare time to Jewish
Because of his involvement
in the study of Jewish history
and culture and his contri-
bution to the samizdat journal
"Jews in the USSR," Finkel-
stein had been a target of KGB
harassment, it was reported.
Recently he was denounced in
the Soviet press in a column
entitled "Beware Zionism."
How Riverside made its name.
It takes years to build a name that is
8econd to none.
It takes nearly 70 years of experience
ana commitment to Jewish tradition.
r. It began with Riverside's founder,
paries Rosenthal. He believed that being a
Jewish funeral director was more than just a
J8ness. It was a very special calling that
^anded absolute integrity, genuine
^Passion, true charity and a dedication and
deep involvement in Jewish life.
Today, Charles Rosenthal's beliefs are
Riverside's policies. People like Carl Grossberg,
Alfred Golden, Leo Hack, Andrew Fier and a
new generation of Jewish management are
seeingtoit .
At Riverside, we've always tried hard
to be the best And to us that means no let-up of
effort No compromising of standards. And no
cutting of service.

That's how Riverside got its name.
That's how we intend to keep it

Israel Government Adopts
New Economic Measures
The series of economic
measures adopted by the
Government of Israel, in the
last few weeks, will improve
Israel's balance of payments
and reduce inflationary
pressures. This forecast was
released in New York, by the
spokesman for Israel's
Economic Mission in the
United States, Consul Uri
Oren. However, in the short
run the measures will bring
, about a temporary accelera-
tion in inflation.
The principal economic
measures are the devaluation
of the Israel Shekel vis a vis
the U.S. Dollar, a 50 percent
reduction in the level of the
Government's subsidization of
basic goods and services, and a
further drastic cut in the
Government budget,
amounting to the equivalent of
one billion dollars out of the
$21.5 billion for the year
ending March 31,1984.
These economic measures
are intended to improve

P Israeli press covers the
If Jewish community only

la"h Ehzur of the Hebrew
diversity Institute of Com-
lElizur recently completed a
fay or coverage of the U.S.
Jn scene by four leading
porew dailies and the Israeli
pome media. She said that
I a result of the superficial

Israel s balance of payments
by increasing its exports and
reducing its imports for
current consumption. The
October 1, 1983 23 percent
reduction in the value of the
Shekel has been continued by
a creeping devaluation
averaging some 0.3 to 0.5 per-
cent a day. The total devalua-
tion of the Shekel vis a vis the
Dollar has amounted to some
30 percent over the last month.
The 8-9 percent cut in the
Government's budget will not
only affect the welfare services
provided to the population,
but also the public's level of
income. In addition to the
special payments the
inhabitants of Israel will be
required to make for health
and educational services, their
real income will be reduced by
the devaluation of the Shekel
and the reduction of fringe
The cut in the public's
purchasing power will bring
about a reduction in the rate
of inflation. However, Mr.
Oren pointed out that in the
short run there will be a
temporary increase in the rate
of inflation because of the
sharp price increases caused by
the devaluation and the
reduction of subsidies.
The Consumer Price Index
for the month of October was
be released bv the Israel
Central Bureau of Statistics on was'anticipated that
the October increase in the
Index would be particularly
large, probably of two digits.
The Government foresees a
calendar year 1983 record high
increase in the Index, but anti-
cipates a reduction in the rate
of inflation beginning in 1984.
Parallel to this development,
the Government forecasts a
significant improvement in

Jewish Roots In China
Continued from Pag* 3
Dynasty (960-1126 C.E.). The
city is off the beaten path for
most American tourists. Ac-
cording to our local tour
guide, Liu Wenching, only
AJCongress and Jewish
Teachers Association groups
currently visit the synagogue
Standing in the hospital
courtyard, Liu said that the
Zhao emperor gave this land
to immigrant Jews for their
synagogue, iu return for their
gift of cotton fabric. He ex-
plained that the synagogue
was destroyed by the flooding
Yellow River in 1461 and
1642, and rebuilt after the
floods. By the time another
flood leveled the synagogue in
the 185U's. the Jewish commu-
nity was to small and poor to
reconstruct it.
When asked by this
correspondent why there was
no marker or memorial at the
site, Liu said no one had ever
made the request. Asked
through what channels such a
request could be made, Liu
said that it was a decision of
the municipality. In response
to several urgent pleas to
produce the mayor or his rep-
resentative within the 24 hours
the AJCongress group was in
Kaifeng, Liu arranged a
private meeting between JTA
and Jang.
Reacting positively to the
request, Jang said: For
Kaifeng Chinese, the site is a
common place and they know
it. For Westerners, it is not a
hard job to have something
placed there. As more and
more Jewish groups come to
Kaifeng, this will draw the at-
tention of people."
The municipality anticipates
building a new museum. Jang
added. He said there had al-
ready been discussion on
whether to house there or at
the synagogue site three steles
(stone tablets) which record
the history of the Kaifeng Jews
and their synagogue. The
steles, written in Chinese in
1489, 1512, and 1679, are
currently housed in the ware-
house of the old municipal
museum. A fourth stele,
written in 1663, is missing.
In 1912, Bishop William
Charles White, head of the
Canadian Church of England
in Human Province, acquired
the steles. (Pearl Buck's 1948
"Peony" gives a fictionalized
account of the event, as well as
a fictionalized history of the
demise of the Kaifeng lewish
community). White agreed to
stipulations by descendants of
the Jewish community that he
not remove the steles from the
province, and he placed them
on the grounds of Trinity
Cathedral in Kaifeng.
Today the 1489 and 1512
steles are bound back to back
and lie in a covered courtyard
of the museum warehouse.
The legend is visible only on
the former. According to Liu,
it describes the construction of
the first synagogue (using the
Chinese characters for the
word "mosque").
This stele says that the Jew-
ish community came from
Xiu, which Liu identified as
the general region of India,
Persia and Turkey. It
describes the emperor's ac-
ceptance of the Jews as
naturalized citizens, who can
abide by their own ancient
customs and reside in Kaifeng.
In 1163, Levi Wusida led the
community and Andula built
the first synagogue with
money donated by Kaifeng
clans, the stele says (according
to Liu's translation).
The second stele speaks of
the "scripture-worshipping
synagogue," Liu said. The
third mentions a "temple
history-telling inscription."
The 32 members of the
AJCongress tour had the op-
portunity to see these three
steles, which were formerly
not open to the public. By spe-
cial arrangements with the
municipal museum, Liu and
other local government guides
can now take AJCongress
groups to the warehouse. (The
taking of photographs was
strictly prohibited.)
Along with the torahs And
other relics now in the Royal
Museum in Toronto, the three
steles are the only public
physical evidence that a Jewish
community once flourished
here. Although descendants of
this community can still be
found here, they no longer
publicly admit more than their
relics themselves^?1

The Dutch Parliament has ap-
proved a government decision
to abrogate a 150 year-old law
which paid a subvention to
religious officials of all faiths
in Holland and facilitated
Jewish and other congrega-

The law, promulgated in the
Napoleonic era, was intended
to compensate religious bodies
for the expropriation of their
properties by the government.

children can lead to many

Because children come from

loyalty conflicts for children.
If step-parents can

improves. As in all successful
relationships, good honest
communication is a must.

Project Renewal
As Seen By Our
Man In Jerusalem
Zelig Chinitz
The efforts of the Project
Renewal campaign are pri-
marily a success story. One
million seven hundred and
fifty thousand Jews were
brought into Israel since 1948
through the efforts of Federa-
tion United Jewish Appeal
campaigns. Most were suc-
cessful at absorption into Is-
raeli society. However, some
300.000. who because of their
country of origin and
depressed socio-economic
background, did not manage
to integrate effectively into
the society. They created
pockets of social and economic
distress in certain develop-
ment towns and suburbs of
major cities in Israel.
Recognizing that this was
an intolerable situation with
about 10 percent of the Israeli
population afflicted with
social and economic problems,
the government of Israel in
conjunction with the Jewish
Agency representing world
Jewry launched Project
Renewal. It was designed to
complete the job undertaken
two decades ago when the
parents of these residents
came to Israel.
From the onset, Project Re-
newal was conceived as a
partnership with the govern-
ment of Israel concentrating
on housing solutions and the
Jewish Agency through local
Federation campaigns
focusing on the social and ed-
ucational programs designed
to improve the quality of life
in these neighborhoods.
In the final analysis, Isra-
el's greatest resource is
human resources (her people).
The land itself is not blessed
with minerals, oil, et-
c. but she hopes to de-
velop a viable economy
through the cultivation of
human talents which can add
to the gross national product
of the country by virtue of its
expertise and technical know-
Therefore Project Renewal
becomes essential to Israel's
capacity to survive economi-
cally and socially. From the
very beginning optimism to
the chance of success was
evident because of three
varied innovations.
First of all, the plan for the
neighborhoods was compre-
hensive. Improvements in the
social, physical and cultural
areas were to be accomplished
together in a parallel fashion.
Secondly, the residents of
the neighborhoods became
involved because local partici-
pation was stressed. Steering
committees of local residents
were formed.
Thirdly, there is a special
relationship of Israel to a
twinning community over-
seas. Renewal has been in
existence for four years but
did not take off until this last
element was incorporated.
In terms of strengthening
the ties of overseas Jewry
with Israel, Project Renewal
has, in a course of a few years,
involved community leaders
overseas with the children of
immigrants in the neighbor-
hoods who experience a
genuine sense of unity.
Through Project Renewal the
concept of "WE ARE ONE"
assumes a special dimension
that engages the minds and
hearts of the future genera-
tions of world Jewry and the
people in the neighborhoods.
Zelig Chinitz, the resident
representative of the United
Israel Appeal in Jerusalem, is
considered "our man in Jeru-
salem" our link with the
Jewish Agency.
H. irwin Levy, Project Renewal Chairman
"I am very excited about Project Renewal because of the direct relationship
with the people who will be receiving the benefits as well as an ability to see the
results of our efforts. With a goal of $250,000 per year over the next five years,
we can achieve great success in providing better physical structures and im-
proving the quality and quantity of social welfare programs in Giora and Gil
Amal. All of this can be accomplished only with the involvement of the people
who live in these neighborhoods. Their input, along with the funds raised by the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, means everything to the success of
Project Renewal
Peter Cummings, Project Renewal co-chairman
"The cornerstone of Project Renewal is the creation of a twin relationship
between the residents of Palm Beach County and the residents of the Gil Amal
and Giora neighborhoods in Hod Hasharon. The Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County s Project Renewal Committee and the residents of the neigh-
borhoods have worked together to set priorities. We have participated in the
implementation of social wetfareprograms for the residents and their children.
HtyflwfMll are the norm in Giora, Gil Amal and in most Project Renewal
neighborhoods. Because of the large number of youngsters involved, the
siiccess ofProject Renewal is as crucial to the future security of Israel as are
secure borders.
Myron J. Nickman, General Campaign Chairman
"The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County has undertaken the respon-
sibility of helping over 1.000 mostly Sephardic families in Hod Hasharon enter
the mainstream of Israeli life. To do this, we have pledged to raise $1 1 million
y.t TF22" P? action to our regular Federation-UJA campaign
efforts. All dollars for this separate Project Renewal campaign will go directlvto
give the residents of Giora and Gil Amal. Hod Hasharons impover^hadn2ttS-
borhoods, a new lease on life." *u
Michael c. Burrows, Special Gifts vice Chairman
"During my trip to Israel this summer to explore the in-depth issues underlying
the 1984 United Jewish Appeal campaign, I observed the sense of pride that the
residents of Hod Hasharon possessed and I really respected it. I saw that the
needs of these people are enormous. Among other things, the children must be
given an opportunity so that they will be able to take their proper place in the
mainstream of Israeli life." i-

living in a neighborhood
where housing is sub-standard, 45 percent of the children are psychologically
damaged, health care Is minimal, dental care Is nonexistent, families cannot earn
enough money to support themselves, and social welfare programs to help them are
Insufficient. These are the neighborhoods In which 300,000 Sephardlm In Israel live
with little hope, with a bleak future.
Project Renewal, a partnership with the people of these neighborhoods, the Israeli
government and communities In the Diaspora, was Initiated In 1977 by Prime Minister
Menachem Begin to begin an effort to improve the quality of life in Israel's depressed
areas. Project Renewal became their hope for a better tomorrow and is beginning to
make an Impact In these dilapidated and poverty stricken neighborhoods.
The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach county has adopted Hod Hasharon, northeast
of Tel Aviv, as Its Project Renewal twinned city, we have assumed responsibility for
upgrading the standard of living of 1,000 families In Hod Hasharons Impoverished
neighborhoods of Clora and Gil Amal.

Connecting With The People Of Israel
"We want to bring the mes-
sage of Project Renewal to our
local community and to get
people involved with the
people of Israel," stated Julie
Cummings, Project Renewal
Chairman for Women's
Division of the Jewish Feder-
ation of Palm Beach County
and the liaison for Project Re-
newal from the National
United Jewish Appeal Young
Women's Leadership Cabinet
to this community.
Julie, who sits on the
Project Renewal Committee of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, was in Hod
Hasharon. this community's
twinned neighborhood in Is-
rael, in March for Budget
Committee meetings with the
local council. She renewed
friendships that had devel-
oped during her previous two
This time she visited with a
woman who didn't speak En-
glish. "We didn't need a
translator because, as women,
we were able to communicate.
She is a working woman with
six children who live together
in a tiny house." But the
important thing, Julie relates,
is for this woman and others
like her to feel that fellow
Jews care about them and are
with them. "Project Renewal
helps them to feel better about
themselves. Women are learn-
ing to read and write and con-
tribute to society."
The people in Hod
Hasharon are very warm and
realize that someone cares
about them," Julie said. "I
admired a piece of art work on
the wall of one woman's
house. She immediately took
it down and gave it to me. The
next time I came to visit she
had made something for me."
While in Hod Hasharon,
Julie visited some of the
town's facilities including the
day care center. "It was an
eye opening experience for me.
I learned that people are the
same all over and want the
same things for their children
to be clothed, fed, and for
them to be happy."
"I really think that Project
Renewal is the future. We
actually get to know the
people and can be a part of
their lives. I can't see us drop-
ping our friendships after the
five years of Project Renewal
Julie and Peter Cummings in Hod Hasharon
are completed. The bond that
we have made, and will con-
tinue to make, will last a life-
Women's Division is plan-
ning to take an active role in
involving this community
with the people of Hod
Hasharon. "We encourage as
many people as can to visit
our twinned neighborhood in
Israel," said Julie. "We will
also have people from Gil
Amal and Giora, Hod
Hasharon's distressed
borhoods, come to our
munity so that people
have a chance to meet andt
with them and experi
their indomitable spirit."
Ketuba: Women's Division's
Covenant of Renewal
Marva Per r in, campaign
vice president for the Wo-
men's Division of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, has announced that
the Women's Division will be
presenting a lithograph of a
Ketuba from the original col-
lage by Israeli artist Pinchas
Shaar to women who make a
commitment of $2500 or more
to Project Renewal. This con-
tribution is in addition to the
regular Federation-UJA cam-
paign and goes directly to aid
the residents of Hod
Hasharon's two distressed
neighborhoods, Gil Amal and
The Ketuba was adopted in
1978 by national Women's
Division as its special ap-
proach to spread the message
of Renewal in communities
throughout the United States.
It represents a covenant of
Renewal between Women's
Division and the people of Is-
rael. "Although several wo-
men in our community have
received the Ketuba from na-
tional Women's Division in
the past few years in recogni-
tion of their commitment to
Project Renewal, this is the
first year that we, as a local
Women's Division, are part-
icipating in this exciting pro-
gram." stated Marva. -
The Ketuba, designed espe-
cially for national *vomen's
Division, is sized 23"xS2" and
is a lithograph in eight colors
containing much symbolism.
The three pomegranates loc-
ated at the top of the Ketuba
are a symbol of plenty, over-
flowing with knowledge.
Below the pomegranates are
two doves. In the Jewish trad-
ition, they symbolize love,
faith and allegiance. Under-
neath the dove, in an orna-
mental design on either side,
are two clusters of grapes
which remind us of Eretz
On each side of the Ketuba
is a Shield of David with a
Lion of Judah in the center.
They signify Jewish eternity
and renewal. Encircling the
Kutuba in the inner border are
ancient Hebraic signs of the
Zodiac. These are referred to
as "Mazalot," signs of good
luck or signs of destiny.
The name of the woman
who receives the Ketuba will
be inscribed in English and
Hebrew. Below her name is
the inscription "Through the
Women's Division of United
Jewish Appeal accept our
covenant of faithfulness with
the people of Israel. May all
Jews be blessed with the op-
portunity to live in freedom
with dignity, and realize the
dream of individual fulfill-
_ ment."
The Women's Division goal
for Project Renewal is to be-
come involved in services
mostly related to children and
families. These are in the areas
of day care, pre-kindergarten
classes, nutrition classes for
mothers, day camp, training
mothers to play and work with
their children, meals tor
students and senior citizens
and other social services.
The $2500 commitment to
Project Renewal is payable
over a five year period. Over
the years approximately one
thousand women have
ceived the Ketuba in recogn.
tion of their contribution.
Seventeen women from the
Palm Beaches are included in
these numbers. They are

Giving Women
Second Chance
At Learning
Project Renewal Coordinator
In Hod Hasharon
I "TEHILA" is a Hebrew
I acronym which translates
I into the most exciting edu-
cational program in the
| entire Project Renewal
array of excellent social
programs. TEHILA is the
Adult Education program
which is giving many of our
Giora and Gil Amal women
a second chance at learning.
The program is designed
to provide basic education-
al skills to those people who
have never before had the
chance or the time to learn.
Most of the women in the
course come from the
Arabic speaking countries;
they were born in places
like Morocco, Iraq, or
Algeria. They were from
families who had lived
many generations under
the most abysmal condi-
tions. In their past, it
wasn't considered impor-
tant to teach girls how to
read and write, and by the
time they settled into their
new homeland, Israel, they
were already on their way
toward raising large fami-
lies of their own.
The word, TEHILA,
means "fame" or
famous," and that's just
how these more than one
hundred area women feel
when they pick up their
school books and confront
the whole world of learning
N is available. Four
times a week, under special
frangements that free
them from their family
chores, they enter the halls
learning. The classes,
toth morning and after-
m to accommodate the
jwking woman as well as
m home-bound, offer
oarses in basic Hebrew
reacting and writing, in
Jewish history,
K^Phy, trithmetic, and
J English. In addition,
fwe are special education-
al trips and lectures, which
goje them, some for the
2 tune, to the wonderful
tod of Israel.

Dina came to Israel and to the Gil Amal neighborhood in Hod
Hasharon 35 years ago as a young (15-year-old) mother of a year
old baby. The family settled into a 21/2-room house and over the
years six more children were born and grew up in the same little
house. Dina never really had time to dwell on her own needs, her
frustrations, her personal growth. She was first and foremost wife
and mother and life was hard and time always short, one day, two
years ago, one of her grandchildren burst Into her little house ex-
citingly calling "Saba, Saba, look the teacher wrote Tov Ma od (very
good) on my paper, look and read it Saba." Dina had to tell her
granddaughter that she couldn't read. The child looked at her in
amazement. She couldn't believe couldn't grasp that her "saba"
couldn't read.
That's when Project Renewal began to take on a special
meaning for Dina. She had heard of the Tehila program the
adult basic education program sponsored by Project Renewal and
funded by people who called themselves 'Partners in Renewal" of
the Hod Hasharon neighborhoods of Gil Amal and Giora the
Jews of Palm Beach. These Jews really cared and wanted to help.
Dina is now in her second year of studies. She proudly showed
her copy book to Mrs. Monchick. Dina studies hard. She's learning
Hebrew, arithmetic, history and next year she'll begin a bit of
English. Dina is doing this for herself and for her little gran-
ddaughter who will never again ask "but Saba, why can't you
