It started with the war in 1973. The Yom Kippur
War. The economy staggered.
The peace was welcome, but it meant giving up the
Sinai Oil wells, and building expensive new airfields
in the Negev to substitute for the ones in Sinai.
Neither the war nor the peace had disrupted crucial
social services. Subsidies kept the prices of basic
foods down, so that Israel's poor could eat decently.
Salary indexing kept wages tied to the cost of living.
The renewal of shim areas and the develpment of
opportunities for the poor had been maintained as
necessary though expensive. Nothing to be ashamed
of. But the wars, the peace, and the Jewish social
conscience finally produced a raging inflation.
With inflation now at 1,000 percent, nobody can
plan. Manufacturers and banks are helpless. The
entire economy stalls and stops. The crisis menaced
the nation and the solution is well known.
Cut the budget. End subsidies. Curtail social
services. Adopt policies which permit unemployment
to rise, decreasing demand, slowing inflation. But the
medicine is almost as great an affliction as the

Israel's existence and has
engaged in a relentless war
against neutral tankers carrying
Iranian oil to Western nations;
the Iraqis used poison gas

VIENNA (JTA| Vienna.
said Leon Zelman, executive
director of the city's Jewish Wel-
come Service and organizer of the
"Vanished World" sequence of
events here, "is a very geopolit-
ical place. It's the window" to the
West and to the East. "The
Jewish community represents
world Jewry at this frontier."
The community is a tempest-
tossed one. There are an esti-
mated 14,000 Jews in Austria,
mostly in Vienna, out of a popu-
lation of seven million Austrians;
no survey has yet been done. The
number of Jews registered with
the Jewish Gemeinde (official
community) was variously given
to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency as 6,500 to 8,500 and
several numbers in between.
The community is very mixed.
Only about 1,000 Jews remain of
the old Austrian-born genera-
tion; they are elderly and many
are poor. The rest Poles,
Czechs. Hungarians, Russians,
Iranians came or returned to
Austria en route to somewhere
else. (After the war, Austria was
the main transient point and first
refuge for East European Jews,
one million of whom passed
through the city, and remains so
to this day.)
Some Jews who passed
through Vienna, like Zelman, fell
in love with the city. A Mau-
thausen survivor at 17. Zelman
found in Vienna a "family" in the
circle of young Social Democrats
" who are now the leadership of the
country. Other Jews somehow
got stuck in limbo here
wishing but unable to go some-
where else. Many have adapted
and adjusted; others still see
Vienna as an "overnight hotel"
even though the nights have
stretched into years.
Soviet Jews In Vienna
Estimates of the number of
Soviet Jews in Vienna differ
ranging from 1,500 to 4,000
but there is agreement on one
thing: all of them came back to
Vienna from Israel. These include
many originally from the Cau-
casus, Georgia, Bucharia, and
"It is the Russians who are
providing the community with a
middle generation," said Dr.
Jonny Moser, a city councilman
and Holocaust researcher. "There
eventually would not be any Jews
left here if not for the Russians."
Most of the children in the
community there are at least
half a dozen Bar Mitzvahs every
week are Russians.
Karl Pfeifer, editor of
"Gemeinde," the community's
official publication, and a
member of its executive council,
told JTA the Russians "have no
deep Jewish roots and usually
they don't register with the
community." At first the
community ignored them, he
said, then many people began to
feel they should be integrated.
"Some are," he continued, "but
Shocking Development for Israel

deliberate reticence was evident when, contrary to
expectations, Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir avoided reference to the com-
munique in a speech winding up a Knesset foreign
policy debate.
Senior aides of Shamir said, however, that his lack
of public comment did not mean he decided to ignore
the communique. They said the Foreign Ministry is
studying its text and the contradictory mollifying
and hardline statements emanating from Cairo in
recent days to determine whether there has been a
basic shift in Egyptian policy.
The Israelis were most disturbed by the com-
munique's support lor the "inalienable rights of the
Palestinian people to self-determination in the form
they see it" and its reiteration of the Arab League
pronouncement, at its 1974 summit meeting in
Rabat, that the PLO is "the sole legitimate
representative of the Palestinian people."
Also severely troubling was the communique's
endorsement of United Nations Security Council
Resolution 242 as a "suitable basis" for peace set-
tlement. The resolution, promulated on November
22, 1967, five months after the Six-Day War, called
for among other things, "withdrawal of Israeli armed
forces from territories occupied in the recent con-
flict." While Israel accepted Resolution 242 in its
entirety the PLO rejected it and acknowledged
that it was the basis for the 1978 Camp David
agreements, Jerusalem has always insisted that the
Camp David formula is the only viable framework for
a Middle East peace settlement. That also ap-
parently is the American view.
The Mubarak-Hussein communique called for an
international peace conference under UN auspices
with the two superpowers, U.S. and USSR in at-
tendance along with the other permanent members of
the Security Council, and the PLO as an equal party
to the negotiations.
Israel has flatly rejected an international con-
ference on Middle East peace because it would inject
the Soviet Union directly into the process and
because Israel, under no circumstances, will deal
with the PLO which it regards as a terrorist organi-
The Reagan administration shares Israel's views.
It maintained that the best way to achieve peace in
the Middle East was through direct talks between
Israel and the Arabs the Camp David process
rather than the international conference called for by
Hussein and Mubarak.
"We don't believe that such an international
conference will lead to productive results," State
Department deputy spokesman Allen Romberg said.
He said the U.S. feels that the "most practical course
is direct negotiations between Israel and the Arab
parties concerned as envisioned by the Camp David
But the administration appears not to share Isra-
el s new doubts about Egyptian fealty toward Camp
David. Husseins bitter attack on the Camp David
accords in his speech to the Egyptian Parliament
drew neither support nor rebuttal from Mubarak.
I he Egyptian president, in his speech which followed
Hussein s made no mention whatever of that historic
According to the State Department view, the
omission meant that Egypt is "fully supportive of
the Lamp David process."
There were some mitigating remarks in Cairo by
Premier Kemal Hassan Ali to the effect that Egypt
continues to adhere to the Camp David agreement*,
as it interprets them. The Egyptian and Israeli in-
terpretations, always at variance, seem to have
moved further apart in recent months.
Hussein s hardline position could be embarrassing
for Premier Shimon Peres and the Labor Party
component of Israel's unity government which has
been urging the Jordanian ruler to negotiate with Is-
rael without preconditions.
Peres, in the course of a foreign policy speech to
the Knesset, promised that if Hussein agreed to talks
with Israel, any proposals put forward in such
negotiations "in conditions of equality and mutual
respect" would be considered "seriously" by Israel.
Peres added that Resolution 242 should be "a
basis for negotiations with Jordan "but not a
condition there should be no preconditions."
Peres referred to Hussein's speech before the
Palestine National Council (PNC)meeting in
^^an 1L Vo7 intere8tin8." noting that the PNC,

party, the Scarsdale ease centers
on the right of public officials to
refuse to erect such a display on
public land because it would
divide the community and
alienate residents.
The Scarsdale case stems from
a 1961 decision by the village's
board of trustees to deny a
request by the Scarsdale Creche
Committee, a private group, to
place a creche in Boniface Circle
for a two-week period during the
Christmas season. Such a request
had been granted to the Creche
Committee annually since 1957.
The attorneys for Scarsdale
want the Supreme Court to
reverse the U.S. Court of Appeals
for the Second Circuit which had
ruled, following the Pawtucket
decision, that the village was
obliged to permit a private group
to erect a creche on Boniface
Circle, a plot of public land in
Scarsdale's business district. The
appeals court ruling had over-
turned a previous decision by the
U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of New York
that the village could not grant
permission for such a display on
In their brief to the Supreme
Court, the lawyers for Scarsdale
contend that the case differs
significantly from the Pawtucket
controversy. They say that
unlike the Rhode Island case,
where the Supreme Court found
that a municipality, in its discre-

Gifted Program instituted at
Jewish High School
The Jewish High School of
South Florida has instituted a
Gifted Program which, it is
hoped, will prove to be an enrich-
ing experience for the very bright
students in the school.
Geared to the student's indi-
vidual interests, the program is
designed to allow for supervised
individual research, as well aa
exposure to unusual cultural and
educational experiences.
The program is being coordin-
ated by Dr. Irving Kay, Physics
Instructor at the School. It ia
being supervised by Mrs. Joan
Gale, College Guidance Coun-
selor of the School. Both were
associated with the Gifted
Program at South Broward High
School. A significant percentage
of students at the Jewish High
School qualify for nationally
recognized Gifted Program.

Guide to Chanukah,
Christmas Holidays
Each year on the occasion of
the celebration of Chanukah, The
Jewish Floridian publishes this
Guide for Jewish Parents
Regarding Christmas. This year,
the first candle will be lit on the
evening of Dec. 18, and the first
day of the eight-day celebration
is Dec. 19. With the unusual
proximity of Chanukah and
Christmas, the guide is of special
Q. Isn't Christmas a national
holiday which all Jews can ob-
serve in good conscience?
A. Banks and government
agencies do close, but above all
things, Christmas is a major
Christian holy day which
celebrates the birth of Jesus, the
Christian Messiah. To suggest to
our Christian friends that
Christmas is anything else would
be presumptuous. Christmas is
not in the same category as
Thanksgiving, Fourth of July.
Decoration Day, or any other
American holiday. Since we do
not regard Jesus as our savior,
we can not in good conscience
observe Christmas. To do so is to
violate our religious principles.
Q. How do Christian
clergymen and the responsible
Christian laity regard the
A. Responsible Christian
leaders bemoan the perversion of
the Christmas season and arc
trying to do something about it.
Christian clergymen and laymen
constantly speak out against the
commercialisation of the
Christmas celebration. It is a
religious holiday, and should be
regarded as such.
Q. Would it not be the better
part of discretion to "go along"
with our Christian neighbors,
even if it means observing
A. No matter involving
violations of strong religious
convictions can be regarded as
trivial or minor. The true spirit of
Americanism would never compel
anyone to act in conflict with his
freedom of conscience. Our early
American forebears came to these
shores precisely for the op-
portunity to worship God ac-
cording to the dictates of their
Q. What about the Christmas
A. The Christmas tree is
distinctively a Christmas
symbol. Since Christmas is for
Christians, the Christmas tree is
appropriate for Christians only.
The Christmas tree has no place
in the Jewish home, nor should
any Jewish child be compelled to
participate in observances in-
volving Christmas trees.
Q. Should Jewish children
participate in Christmas parties
in the public schools?
A. Parties designated as
Christmas parties or having the
appearance of Christmas parties,
have no place in the public
schools. Winter or year-end
parties of a general nature are
Q. Is it appropriate to give
gifts to Christian friends?
A. It is appropriate to give
Christmas gifts to our Christian
friends. However, it is not ap-
propriate to present Christmas
gifts to Jews.
Q. Should Jewish children
participate in Christmas plays in
public schools?
A. No. Christmas plays
generally portray religious
themes which have no place in a
public school. On the other hand,
some schools hold a so-called
"Winter Festival" in which an
attempt is made to avoid all
religious connotations. But it is
sometimes difficult to draw the
distinction. If the parents feel
that the performance is free of all
religious overtones, children may
certainly participate.
Q. Should Jewish children sing
Christmas carols?

A. No. Carols, being religious
hymns, do not belong in the
public school. Jewish children
should not be required to sing
hymns which embody a theology
they do not accept. Neutral songs
that have no religious references,
however, are acceptable.
Q. Do we harm our children by
directing them not to participate?
A. No. The classroom is one
among many places which reveal
the existence of differences. We
further our children's personal

growth and maturity by teaching
them that they can respect the
faith of their neighbor without
embracing that faith. We can
clearly mark these differences by
such simple statements as. "This
is what we do," and "This is what
we do not do."
Q. What about other Jewish
children who participate in
Christmas observances in the
public schools?
A. There are now, as there
always have been, parents who
do not accept the viewpoint of
responsible Jewish leadership.
They proceed on their own when
they permit their children to
participate in Christams ob-
servances. This confuses the
children of parents who do follow
the thoughtful recommendations
of Jewish leadership.
Jewish parents will help their
children most if they (1) accept
diversity in the ranks of Jewry as
a normal condition in the
American environment; (2) know
and understand the thinking of
responsible Jewish leadership
and recognize that most parents
are anxious to follow it; and (31
assure their children that despite
the participation of some Jewish
children, Jewish leaders have
taken a strong position for non-
participation in observances of a
holiday not their own, and that
this is also their position.
Q. Would not the entire
problem be solved in i
school by joint
Chanukah celebration?
A. No. It is a vk

otherwise. We do not i

Israel's economic crisis
raises concern
government's inability to in-
troduce the drastic spending cuts
necessary to alleviate the
economic crisis has raised
concern among policy-makers
over what might occur when the
three-month wage-price freeze
package expires in January.
The freeze, institutes last
month, was seen as a temporary
means of curbing inflation while
the government utilised the
"breathing spell" to hammer out
an economic policy of austerity
which virtually all economists
consider urgent.
But the measures taken to date
fall far short of the austerity
goals and were agreed to only
after bitter wrangling among the
various ministries over where the
ax would fall. The unity
government, indeed, authorized a
$1 billion slash in the State
budget when it took office last
September. But Finsnce
Minister Yitzhak Modai has
Israel's Unemployment Reaches
Record High of 100,000
Unemployment in Israel
has reached a record high of
nearly 100.000 jobless,
about six percent of the
work force, according to
figures released here. It is
the highest rise since the
economic slump of the mid-
1960s, just before the Six-
Day War.
Baruch Haklai. director
general of the Employment
Service, said the problem was
especially acute in the develop-
ment towns where the jobless
rate is triple the average for the
country as a whole.
Yisrael Kesser, secretary
general of Histadrut. blamed the
previous Likud-fed government
for neglecting development
towns in order to invest large
sums in settlements in the ad-
ministered territories. "The
government does not realise what
a time bomb we have in the
development towns." he said.
Prof. Ephraim Kleimann, a
Hebrew University economist,
ssid fighting inflation by
unemployment was "the easy
wsy out." He warned that large-
scale joblessness would en-
courage emigration which is
contrary to the very reason the
State of Israel was founded.
Kleimann said he was con-
cerned that the economic slow-
down will damage the industrial
sector of the economy rather than
reduce the large workforce in the
service area. He proposed
shrinking the civfl service while
easing the tax burden on em-
ployers so there will be no need to
Commenting on the unemploy-
ment figures in s radio interview.
Minister of Labor and Welfare
Moshe Kstzav said massive
unemployment was contrary to
the government's policy. His
ministry predicts that while the
jobless figure will rise gradually
in the immediate future, it will
taper off by the end of next year
when the economy, hopefully,
its growth.

argued strenuously since
then that an additional S500
million cut is necessary, st the
very least.
An ad hoc committee of four,
headed by Modai. recommended
an additional $395 million cut in
the national budget. Other
members of the committee are
Economic Minister Gad Yaacobi
and Minislers-Without-Portfolio
Eaer Weizmsn and Moshe Arens.
Buth they ran into trouble
when they brought their
proposals before their colleagues
at a five-hour special session of
the Cabinet. The outcome was
that the recommended cut was
whittled down to S365 million.
The stiffest opposition to the
proposed cuts come from the
ministries with the largest
budgets: Defense, headed by
Yitzhak Rabin: Housing, by
David Levy: and Education, by
Yitzhak Navon.
The failure to introduce the
drastic budget cuts most
economists consider necessary
has raised the spectre of higher
taxes. Treasury sources said that
unless the spending cuts are
forthcoming, taxes must rise in
the next fiscal year even though
the highest marginal tax now
stands at 65 percent.
Another obstacle to spending
cuts is Histadrut s *?rdt that
the Treasury honor exist sag wage
agreements and pay workers
their increases when due. Modai
offered the wage hikes in ex-
change for an agreement thus
reducing the burden on the
Treasury. But Histadrut
Secretary General Yisrael Kesser
flatly rejected the deal at a
lengthy meeting at Premier
Shimon Peres'residence.

Peres met last Thursday with
President Francois Mitterrand
for what was expected to be a
of Middle
issues and bilateral
relations. Mitterrand is the only
Western statesman to have met
in recent months with a wide
array of Arab leaders.
These included King Hassan of
Morocco, President Habib
Bourguiba of Tunisia, Col.
Muammar Qadaffi of Libya, King
Hussein of Jordan, Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak, and
President Hafez Assad of Syria.
Peres was said to be anxious to
hear Mitterrand's first-hand
impressions of the role at least
some of these leaders might play
in the Middle East peace process.
He was especially interested in
Mitterrand's assessment of
Assad's intentions which could
directly effect Israel's current
negotiations with Lebanon for
the withdrawal of Israeli forces
from south Lebanon and the
future security of Israel's nor-
thern borders. Peres is also aware

of Mitterrand's desire that
Prance play a key role in Mideast
BUT THE most interest
aroused here since Peres' arrival
centered on reports that he and
Fabius had discussed the pur-
chase by Israel of a nuclear power
station manufactured in Prance.
It was said to have been one of
the bilateral subjects that came
up during the 45-minute private
meeting the two premiers had.
Fabius confirmed to reporters
that the sale of a power station
had been discussed. He refused to
specify the type of generator, but
he did not rule out nuclear power.
French officials said the only
problem is that Israel is not a
signatory of the Vienna Con-
vention which provides for
regular inspection of nuclear
installations by the Vienna-based
Atomic Energy Commission. The
inspection is to ascertain whether
nuclear weapons are being
produced. The officials said Israel
might circumvent this obstacle
by agreeing to open its French-
made installation to inspection.
Peres hosted a reception at the
Israeli Embassy here and was
later a guest of honor at a dinner
given by the French Jewish
community. He returned to Israel
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations (UAHC) has
adopted a nationwide program to
stem the "epidemic" of suicide
among teen-agers who have
"fallen through the Jewish safety
net of family and synagogue."
The program, believed to be
the first attempt by any national
religious organization to deal
with suicide among young
people, was approached by the
UAHC's Board of Trustees after
hearing a report by UAHC presi-
dent Rabbi Alexander Schindler
confirming a high rate of suicide
among Jewish teenagers.
The Board, holding its semi-
annual meeting authorized the
establishment within the UAH-
C's 770 Reform congregations of
a new institute to be called "Yad
Tikvah" (Hand of Hope) which
will serve as a training, research
and educational center for
Reform Jewish activities to deal
with teen-age suicide.
Cites Troubling Statistics
Schindler's report noted that
suicide among adolescents has
reached "epidemic proportions."
Every day, 18 young Americans
kill themselves, a 300 percent in-
crease over the past 20 years.
Suicide now is the second leading
i cause of death among young
people, after accidents, many of
which are suspected suicides,
Schindler said.
He noted that the suicide rate
for young people was higher
among college students than
among those who do not attend
college. "Because the percentage
of Jewish youth attending college
exceeds that of the general
population, we must draw the
grim conclusion that the suicide
rate among Jewish youth is also
disproportionately high,"
Schindler said.
"These troubling statistics,"
he said, "are confirmed by
alarming reports of suicide
among Jewish youth which we
are receiving from rabbis,
educators, counsellors and youth
leaders across the country."
In response to Schindler's re-
port, the UAHC Trustees estab-
lished a task force on teen-age
suicide to train rabbis and
teachers in Reform congregations
"to recognize the warning signals
of this sickness," to develop
educational materials for a
suicide prevention program and
to devise "some means for crisis
intervention on a national
regional and perhaps even con
gregational level."

Mr. and Mrs. R were referred
to Jewish Family Service by the
school psychologist. Their middle
son, age 15, had failed three
classes last semester and began
to act during school hours.
Mr. and Mrs. R and family,
son, age, 15, daughter, age 13,
moved to Florida from Chicago
about two and a half years ago.
The parents are the natural birth
parents and have not experienced
any serious trouble with their
children until now. Mr. R is an
accountant, and Mrs. R works
part-time in a boutique. Recently
the parents have been experienc-
ing some difficulty in their mar-
riage. There has been a lot more
arguing and open fighting. Mrs.
R is angry at her husband for his
lack of involvement in the family.
She stated that he works all day
and comes home approximately 7
p.m. at night and sits in front of
the TV set. She feels more or less
responsible for the care of the
children and feels overwhelmed
by this. She also feels neglected
by her husband. Mr. R responded
by stating that he was working
for the family, to provide for the
family and he did not understand
why his wife was so angry. When
I spoke with the oldest son, he
complained about his parents
fighting and he said he hated
them for fighting. He felt
distressed over this and was un-
sure about what the fighting

The Nursery School of

Temple Beth Orr of Coral
Springs is celebrating the
Chanukah festival with a Chanu-
kah picnic and candle lighting
ceremonies by children of the
Temple's Religious School, at 7
a.m. Friday Dec. 21 at the Sun-
rise Service at Hilisboro Beach.
The early service is in celebration
of the winter solstice. The
evening service at 8 p.m. that
same night, will be a music Sab-
bath featuring Cantor Nancy
meant. He continued by stating
that some of his friends" parents
are separated and that he was
afraid that it would happen to his
parents. He also stated that he
saw his parents fighting, but that
he did not see them make up. As
our session ended, the 15 year old
asked me if I could help to keep
his parents together.
In the following sessions I con-
tinued to meet with the family.
One of the first goals we set up
during counseling was that Mr.
and Mrs. R spend more time to-
gether alone. The second goal
was to get Mr. R involved with
the caretaking of the children. As
these goals were put into prac-
tice, dialogue continued around
issues of expectations, disap-
pointments, self-image and
parent-child relationships. It ap-
peared to the caseworker after
the eight counseling sessions that
Mr. and Mrs. R were beginning
to feel more intimate with one
another. From the counseling
sessions with the whole family
the children were able to not only
see their parents confront con-
flicts but were also viewing the
peacemaking. This was reassur-
ing to both children and relieved
them of their fear about divorce.

Katherine Kahn's expensive il-
lustrations show the children's
determination to have a normal,
happy life and reveal their
father's struggle with depression.
The story sensitizes us to how
difficult holidays are for those
who have suffered a loss or who
are alone.
The Hanukkah of Great Uncle
Otto is another story of great
sensitivity and "hesed" whr#
young and old have a special rel-
ationship. Great-Uncle Otto is a
shadow of his former self. The
booming-voiced Otto of the repair
shop, the teller of tales and
source of wisdom is a shaky and
dependent old man in the home of
Joshua' parents, with whom he
lives. His growing infirmity
alarms young Joshua and he is
glad when the old man grows
brighter in planning a special
Hanukkah gift for the family, a
menorah like the one he had in
pre-Hitler Germany; a wondrous
menorah embellished with
flowers and wines. For a while the
work goes well and Otto's spirits
soar, until he realizes that he is
unable to recreate the menorah.
Joshua will not allow Great-
Uncle Otto to sink into lassitude
again. He makes a courageous
and risky choice to try and save
the situation. How he accom-
plishes this is the surprise ending
o'(a beautiful story, made even
more so by Donna Ruffs expres-
sive illustrations.

Methyl isocyanate, the gas
that leaked from a pesticide
plant in Bhopal, India, last
week two weeks ago killing
2,000 people and injuring
thousands more, is also
manufactured in Israel and
four other countries outside
the United States.
Officials for Union Carbide,
which operated the plant in
India, informed The Jerusalem
Post's Washington correspon-
dent from the global headquar-
ters in Connecticut that the
chemical was manufactured and
distributed by an Israeli firm,
though he did not know its name.
The chemical is used to make a
pesticide known as carbamates
and is also produced in Japan,
West Germany, Taiwan, and
South Korea.
THE POST'S Beersheba
correspondent reported that
scientists from the Makhteshim
Chemical works in Beersheba
have been summoned to the
Health Ministry in Jerudalem to
explain how the firm manufac-
tures carboryl, a pesticide also
produced at the Union Carbide
plant in India where the gas leak
Kreisky Will
Visit Israel
Chancellor Bruno Kreisky will
pay a private visit to Israel this
spring, it was reported here. In
an interview with the Austrian
daily, Arbeiterzeitung, Shulamit
Aloni, a Knesset member of the
Civil Rights Movement, and one
of the winners last week of the
Bruno Kreisky Peace Prize, con-
firmed that Kreisky has accepted
an invitation to come to Israel to
speak at the International Center
for Peace in the Middle East.
The center was founded in 1977
by the editors of New Outlook
magazine, an English-language
monthly close to Mapman.
The Israeli product is called
ravion, and Sheike Pikaraky,
deputy director of Makhteshim
Chemical, said the company does
not use methyl isocyanate to
make it.
Pikarsky told the Post, "We
have connection with Union Car-
bide and we don't have the same
component We have a
product similar to (Union Car-
bide's) savin, but it is made using
a different process."
Makhteshim's ravion is made
with phosgen and chlorine, and
has been manufactured in Ramat
Hovav, some 12 kilometers south
of Beersheba, for four years,
under strict safety rules. There
have been no malfunctions, and
the management is confident that
its safeguards are sufficient.
