A Message From The Chairmen
Super Sunday is indeed a super day! Officially it is the kick-off
for the 1983 Tampa Jewish Federation-United Jewish Appeal
Campaign. But actually, it is much more.
Super Sunday is an intensive outreach effort to the Jewish
community of Tampa. For, on February 13 from 10 a.m. 6 p.m.,
more than 100 volunteers will be calling more than 2,000 Jews
asking for their financial commitment to the annual campaign.
And beyond asking for a contribution, there is a connection.
The phone call represents our strong feeling about our fellow
Jews today and the future for all of us!
This year our goal is $75,000. Reaching that goal will be an
exciting and exhilarating process. The sense of commitment and
the sense of belonging goes way beyond that process.
We urge you to participate, not just for the Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish Appeal, but for yourself for your
connection with this your Jewish community.

FasceU Wants to Repeal
Withholding on Dividends
Congressman Dante FasceU
(D., Fla.) will co-sponsor legisla-
tion to repeal the withholding of
taxes on dividend and interest
income when the Congress
reconvenes later this month.
Unless this legislation is
enacted, taxes on such income
will be withheld beginning on
July 1, as a result of a provision
added to a tax bill by the U.S.
Senate last year. The House of
Representatives never had a real
opportunity to study or fully
consider the measure.
FasceU noted that the provi-
sion was intended to catch
taxpayers who try to cheat the
federal government by not re-
porting income from interest and
dividends. However, he pointed
out that the vast majority of
taxpayers are honest and should
not be penalized for the sake of a
"Instead of instituting a
complicated procedure which will
not only deprive many citizens of
income they can use immediately,
but which will also add consider-
ably more paperwork for banks
and investment companies, we
should improve reporting re-
quirements to ensure that would-
be cheaters are discouraged,"
FasceU said.

LONDON (JTA Three Arabs identified as mem-
bers of a PLO splinter group went on trial here last week
for the attempted murder of Shlomo Argov, the Israeli
Ambassador to Britain, who was shot and severely
wounded last June 3 outside a London hotel.
The defendants, Hussein Ahmad Ghassan Said and
Marwa Al Banna, both Jordanians and Novoff Nagib
Meflehel Rosan, an Iraqi, pleaded not guilty to the
charges of shooting Argov and his police bodyguard. Ac-
cording to a prosecutor, Argov was shot in the head by
Said who was wounded by police when he attempted to

Palestine Liberation Movement, a little-known breakaway
faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization. Accord-
ing to Scotland Yard, they had a "hit list" of prominent
Israelis targeted for assassination. Argov suffered brain
damage and remains hospitalized.
Anne Thai, executive director of Tampa Jewiah Social Serv-
ice presented a workhsop on "Working with Families" for the
staff of the Hillsborough County School Social Work Depart,

Meet Nancy and Elliot Silverston who moved here just seven
weeks ago from Raleigh, North Carolina. The Silverstons are
renting a house in North Pointe until they decide exactly where
they want to reside. Nancy and Elliot both hail from Queens,
New York, but have been moving around a bit since their mar-
riage. First they lived in Tucson, Arizona, for six years while
Elliot did his Graduate work in Civil Engineering at the Univer-
sity of Arizona. Then they resided in Raleigh for three years,
where Elliot was a Professor of Engineering at North Carolina
State University. Deciding he no longer wanted to teach, the
Silverstons moved to Tampa for Elliot to become the Project
Engineer with the Southwest Florida Water Management Dis-
trict. Our new friends have two children four year old Holly,
who attends the north branch of the JCC, and one year old Joel,
Nancy enjoys reading and sightseeing and the beaches and
Elliot loves golf and racketball. While in Raleigh, he was very
active in B'nai B'rith also. Our new family is very eager to meet
people and become active, so be sure to give them a warm smile
and hello if you run into the Silverstons.

A growing
It would be nice to know whether it is the
United States or Israel that is telling the
truth about confrontations between Israeli
forces and U.S. Marines in Lebanon.
Of course, the State Department in
Washington denies the charge made by one
Israeli General that confrontations of this
sort have been taking place.
We can only judge by the general climate
of opinion as being shaped these days by
the Reagan Administration. More and
more, the President is determined to have
his way with his own "peace initiative." If
he does, this means that Israel will be
pushed back into her pre-1967 borders.
One other Israeli accusation is that the
U.S. is behind the growing Lebanese resis-
tance to come to terms with Israel in a new
accord. Knowing President Reagan's stub-
bornness as we do in other areas of his Ad-
ministration's business, we are hard-
pressed not to give credence to this ac-
cusation, as well.
In all, it is most likely true that there
have been confrontations between Israeli
fighting forces and U.S. Marines. Apart
from being profoundly sad, it only goes to
show just how far the Reagan Administra-
tion has come in its willingness to undercut
Israel and how far apart it has grown
from the Congress and the broad pro-Israel
sentiment that still characterizes most of
America's public opinion.
PERHAPS it was in anticipa-
ion of this week's 50th anniver-
sary of the accession to power of
\dolf Hitler in Germany. In any
case, Simone Veil, the former
president of the European Parlia-
ment, said that she has "had
enough" of the Holocaust es-
pecially the trials and attempted
trials of Nazi war criminals.
Veil's comment was inspired
some ten days ago by the formal
charging of Maurice Papon with
crimes against humanity during
World War II, when he served in
the Vichy government and al-
legedly collaborated with the
Germans in the deportation of
over 1,000 Jews from Bordeaux
to concentration camps in East-
ern Europe and eventual exter-
VEIL'S apparently new-found
feelings about passionate Jewish
attitudes toward the Holocaust
and obsessive Jewish determina-
tion to keep the Holocaust alive
are rather surprising. Veil, her-
self, is Jewish. Veil, herself, is a
survivor of the Auschwitz con-
centration camp, where she lost
virtually all of her family.
It is not that she wishes to for-
get, she explains, as that, from
the beginning, Veil has opposed
the French Parliament's lifting of
the statute of limitations for war
crimes and crimes against
humanity, a legal rationale she
appears to be using for her belief
that such criminals experience
sufficient punishment from pub-
lic condemnation of their acts
once they are found out.
My initial reaction to Veil's of-
ficial announcement that she has
"had enough" was frank an-
noyance. There. I thought, goes
another super-civilized Jew who
believes that everyone else is
super-civilized too. Let contume-
ly punish the Nazi murderers
as if contumely alone can punish
the act of murder at all. As if
those incapable of remorse can
suddenly feel the withering
paralysis of shame. Nonsense.
BUT THE fact is. if for differ-
ent reasons. I have myself spoken
out against the Jewish obsession
with the Holocaust. It is not the
former Nazi butchers who are
still around that I pity for our re-'
lentless pressure to uncover their
whereabouts and try them.
It is we, ourselves, whom I
pity. To begin with, the obsession
with the Holocaust is by now
counterproductive. In our effort
to teach it to others, we have
come to the point of public rela-
tions super-saturation.
Indeed, if the revisionists of
Nazi history are making any
gains at all these days with their
theory that the Holocaust never
occurred, it has our holocaustic
obsession to thank for this, no
matter what the Jewish com-
munity relations agencies may
say to the contrary. The more we
push the Holocaust, the more re-
sistant to it the public becomes.
LETS BE crude about it:
Take, for example, the incessant
scheduling on television of some
new grand-scale production cen-
tered on the theme. Herman
Wouke "The Wings of War" is
the latest of these clinkers
scheduled to begin this weekend.
It ought to be a tine qua non that
if these productions were "good
for the Jews," if we wanted to
stage them there ourselves as
worthy object lessons in history
and as a warning against bigotry,
all televisions channels would in-
stantly be closed to us.
Preciaely because they are no
such thing, precisely because
they are maudlin soap opera
statements that place the Holo-
caust into instant lack of cre-
dibility, or because they show the
Holocaust as but a moment of
exaggerated unpleasantness in
the sad saga of World War II,
while almost always somehow
managing to star questionable
personalities in the cause of Jew-
ishness (Vanessa Redgrave is
only one example of this), ought

THE BRITISH critic. Brian

the Argentinian writer a half-
dozen years or so ago, Jorge Luis

Reasonable Objective
The negotiations that have
I started between Israel and Leb-
anon do not represent just one
Lore political stage among
many. They represent a cross-
| roads.
Despite initial doubts and
[suspicions and despite the mis-
takes which will undoubtedly be
made, there can be no doubt that
these negotiations may represent
a new phase in relations between
Israel and its neighbor to the
North. Given this basic fact, it is
imperative that everything pos-
sible be done to prevent the
stormy public confrontations
endemic to Israel's political life
from dictating the character of
the vital Israel-Lebanon negotia-
Every international
negotiation is, by its very nature,
a process of progress and regres-
sion, of opening stances and lines
of retreat, of wide-ranging de-
mands and realistic com-
promises. Even in the first meet-
ings between Israel and Lebanon,
one saw how very complex it was
going to be, particularly in view
of the difficulties that the Leb-
anese face; the almost unbear-
able pressures of the Arab world
and the additional factor of U.S.
participation in the negotiations.
The Israeli delegation is going
to have to navigate between
these varied factors; to neutralize
pressures and to demonstrate
firmness and flexibility at the
same time; to fight for every
single point on the agenda and to
make the minimal number of con-
cessions and to try to get the
maximum concessions from the
Lebanese. At times, the dele-
gation will be forced to demand
far more than what seems
reasonable in order to make sure
of getting the minimum that is
acceptable. Delays, stalemates
and even the disruption of the
negotiations will have to be taken
as a matter of course without
losing sight of the main objec-
These objectives are the re-
moval of all foreign forces from
Lebanon; the guarantee of se-
curity on Israel's northern bor-
der; and the normalization of re-
lations between the two coun-
tries These objectives, I believe,
are acceptable to all Israelis, no
matter what their political per-

Dinner on Feb. 19.
suasion, with the possible excep-
tion of certain fringe elements.
These objectives are not unrealis-
tic, and there is, in fact, a good
possibility of realizing all of
them. There is also good reason
to try to do so.
The kibitzing and the conten-
tion of some political circles in
this country to the effect that Is-
rael cannot possibly achieve
these objectives and that it is
useless to try can only be harm-
ful. This sort of contention, in
different guises, is voiced often
enough by certain circles in the
Lebanese and even the American
governments. One should not
lend credence to what are usually
baseless opinions by adding the
opinions of Israeli politicians.
One should not foster the
impression that a good part of
the nation does not want or be-
lieve in the possibility of achiev-
ing these objectives. One should
refrain from strengthening the
hand of those who want Israel to
be satisfied with less than what
we really want in our hearts:
more secure borders and a better
chance for peace for us and for
our neighbors.
When it still seemed possible
to get a real peace treaty with the
Lebanese, there were those in Is-
rael and abroad who immediately
responded by contending that
there could be no question of a
peace treaty, because no peace
treaty could be achieved by force
of arms. In the meantime, the
matter of a peace treaty has been
dropped, and Israel has decided
to try to achieve a state of nor-
malization with Lebanon.
The absurdity of the claims,
however, cannot be dismissed.
No international treaty that I
know of has been obtained by
persuasion alone, without the
added factor of armed might be-
hind one of the signatories. How
else have treaties and agreements
been made but by the application
of economic, political and mili-
tary pressures?
One may call these pressures
whatever one wishes pressure,
force, coercion but one cannot
ignore their importance in inter-
national negotiations.
The Israeli military presence
on Lebanese soil can certainly be
termed such a pressure. This is
true, understood and acceptable
in international circles. Israel has
the right to try to get the maxi-
mum advantage from this pres-
sure in order to further its legiti-
mate aims. Only those who do
not share these aims could de-
mand otherwise.
Many among us have sons at
the front, in Lebanon. We would
all prefer to see them on the bor-
ders of Israel. But if there is a
real possibility of increasing the
chances for peace and security,
for them and for ourselves, then
shouldn't we all try to keep that
in mind when we think of them
there in the snows of Lebanon?
The citizens of Israel are not
nearly so interested in who nego-
tiates with Lebanon as they are
in what will be accomplished in
these negotiations.
Good luck to Menachem Begin,
Ariel Sharon and Yitzhak
Shamir: with their success, I too,
as an Israeli citizen, will have
succeeded. Even if I do not
belong to their political party.
I will do or say nothing that
would harm their chances of
achieving Israel's objectives. On
the contrary, I will look for every
way possible to support and to
aid them. And the best assistance
they can get is the force of the
entire nation behind them. If
there is something to be said or
commented on, it should be said,
but not in a manner liable to
enable foreign elements, interest-
ed in questioning and curbing Is-
rael's objectives, to claim that
even part of the people of Israel is
ready to accept less than their

Music Festival
Committees Hard At Work
To plan a music festival is, in
itself, an "awesome" job. To plan
a music festival hosting Robert
Merrill is a "more awesome" job.
However, when the co-chairmen
of the festival are Arline Verkauf
and Howard Sinsley, and you
have the musical talents of
Cantor William Hauben, the job
becomes a bit easier.
Arline and Howard report that
all of the committees for the 14th
Annual Jewish Music Festival
March 20 at Rodeph Sholom
Synagogue have been hard at
work for the past two months and
the Festival is well on its way.
Helping them coordinate all of
the committees is Roberta
Publicity is being handled by
Sandy Turkel and Doris Morris.
Frank Cohen and his committee,
plus the Sisterhood Ad Book
Committee are in charge of
advertising, while Karem Linsky
is heading the Professional Page.
Cantor Hauben, who has been
the overseer of the Jewish Music
Festival since its inauguration, is
so proud of the format of this
year's festival, he truly glows
with pride. "We have come so far
in Tampa. And truly there is so
much quality music in the city
today that we can select from."
Many local artists have been
part of the Jewish Music
Festival program over the years
and they are frequently called
back to accompany the guest
artists. This year it is the Jack
Golly Orchestra who will appear
with Robert Merrill.
Patrons and Sponsors tickets
are in the able hands of David
Linsky, Gary Zamore, Lou
Morris and Sammy Bobo.

Season poster which inaugurates
the 11-week celebration of Jewish
music, sponsored by JWB's Jew-
ish Music Council. Jewish Music
Season lasts from Jan. 29 to
April 18.
According to Leonard Kaplan,
chairman of the JWB Jewish
Music Council, "We are holding
Jewish Music Season as a way of
highlighting the richness and
diversity of Jewish music and the
important role it plays in Jewish
life from the haunting melodies of
cantorial music to the spirited
tunes of Israeli folk musk."
In Tampa, the Jewish Music
Season will be recognized by the
Jewish Community Center's
sponsorship of GALGALIM on
Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the JCC
Auditorium. GALGALIM it a
musical panorama of Jewish ex-
periences from many lands and
times. This show uses in-
strumental and vocal reflection of
the cultural backgrounds of three
generations ranging from the
Jewish presence in North Amer-
ica and Eastern Europe to Israel.

Community Center office. Ad-
vance purchase is recommended.

Turkel, along with Cantor
Hauben, will be coordinating the

Greg Waksman will be in charge
of the program booklet and Ben
Lynn has assumed all treasurer
duties for the festival.
We urge everyone to get in
touch with the synagogoe office,
837-1911, to arrange for tickets
early. This will prove to be a most
entertaining evening, as Mr.
Merrill has arranged a most
diversified program.

Judaism is more than a religion. It is a 4 thousand year old culture. It
has a secular dimension, a secular history, secular roots. Einstein

most interesting Jews of the last 100 years never joined a

paid no attention to the Torah lifestyle. They found Reform as
meaningless as they found Orthodoxy. But they found a new positive

history there has been a non-established pragmatic humanistic
tradition living alongside the official one. Most Jews, without

Sharansky and Mother Exchange Censored Letters
NEW YORK The National
Conference on Soviet Jewry has
learned that Mrs. Ida Milgrom
was asked by Chistopol prison
manager Romanov and special
KGB officer Vladimir Galkin to
urge her son, Poc Anatoly
Sharansky, via letter, to cease
the hunger strike which he began
nearly four months ago. Mrs.
Milgrom has maintained a vigil
at the prison since Jan. 4. On
Jan. 14 authorities in Romanov's
office promised that if the letter
was written, Mrs. Milgrom would
receive a response from her son.
They also indicated that once
Sharansky stops his protest, con-
tact between him and his family
would resume.
Mrs. Milgrom first drafted a
letter detailing the worldwide
activity on behalf of her son, who
was sentenced in 1978 to 13 years
in prison, but the authorities re-
fused to pass it on. She then
wrote a note stressing her con-
cern for her son's health and
stated that she hoped contact
would resume.
Two hours later, the authori-
ties handed Mrs. Milgrom a re-
turn message from her son. Since
six of the 19 lines in the letter
were censored, she refused to ac-
cept it and was about to leave.
Romanov and Galkin tried to
convince her to read it and, des-
perate to ascertain that her son
was alive and capable of writing,
she finally agreed.
In the letter, Sharansky main-
tained that he undertook the
hunger strike to protest how
much his mother and wife,
Avital, were suffering from his
isolation and the lenghty break-
off of contact (ed- note:
Sharansky was last visited by
family in January 1982). He
stated that if contact is resumed,
he would stop his hunger strike.
Details on his deteriorating
health and a request for imme-
diate hospitalization were also
contained in the note.
Romanov and Galkin re-
quested that Mrs. Milgrom write
a confirmation of receipt of that
letter for them to give to her son.
Since the letter was censored,
Mrs. Milgorm refused. However,
two hours later, she agreed to
write a note to her son saying

Britain's Row With
Saudi Arabia Unfolds
While the British Foreign
Office is attempting to play
down Britain's latest row
with Saudi Arabia, leading
London newspapers are
just as intent on playing it
Editorials in The Times,
Financial Times and Guardian
unanimously blame Britain for
the row following Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher's refusal to
receive PLO representative
Farouk Kaddoumi as part of an
Arab League delegation. The
Saudis have retaliated by cancel-
ling a visit by British Foreign
Secretary Francis Pym.
"What is required is not soft-
ness on principle but greater
clarity, consistency and serious-
ness in applying our principles to
the Palestinian issue," says The
The Financial Times, alleging
confusion in Britain's attitude to
the PLO, says that "quite apart
from the possible damage to
trade relations, it is regrettable
that a cooling in relations (with
Saudi Arabia) should take place
just as Britain and the more
moderate members of the Arab
work) appeared to be moving
closer towards a common ap-
proach to a Middle East peace
that the Foreign Office and Dow-
ning Street "are even now cons-
tructing the form of words which
will allow Mr. Kaddowmi or one
of his colleagues both to be
received and not deflect Britain
from giving its full support to the
Palestinian people, whether or
not represented by the PLO, in
what may be their last chance of
securing a home..."
But Mrs. Thatcher's refusal to
meet a PLO representative won
warm praise from the Anglo-Jew-
ish community's representative
body. Arye Handler, chairman of
the Board of Deputies of British
Jews, urged the Prime Minister
to remain firm in her resolve "and
resist odious Arab threats."
But this may not prevent the
anti-British mood from spreading
to other parts of the Arab world.
The strength of Saudi feeling
was evident in an emotional letter
to The Times by Prince Bandar
Ben Abdullah, the Saudi Assis-
tant Deputy Minister of the
Interior, advising fellow Arabs
"to emulate the Saudi way,
namely, hit the Westerners where
it hurts, in their pockets, for they
have no hearts."
AMONG THE epithets which
the Prince levelled at Britain
were that it was "foolhardy in
humiliating the Arabs" and that
"the average full-blooded Arab"
was "nauseated by British hypo-
crisy." He called Britain merely
"an appendage" of the United
States and "almost irrelevant" in
the Middle East.

that she hoped to renew contact

from her.
Mrs. Milgrom then traveled to
Kazan on Jan. 17 and met with
the director of the Health De-
partment of the Interior Minis-
try. She reported on Sharansky's
critical health condition and de-
manded immediate hospitaliza-
tion. The director claimed he had
no new information on
Sharansky'8 condition and that
he is continuing his hunger
strike. He asserted that only
when the hunger strike is stopped
will Sharansky be hospitalized.
Mrs. Milgrom returned to
Moscow to continue her struggle
to free her son.

These books Marcus' remarka-
ble answer to his own assertion
that historians, by and large,
have treated American Jewish
women as non-persons. His
opinion is important since he is
an eminent historian, having
written many book son Jewish
history and having had two
volumes of essays published in
his honor. He is a professor at
Hebrew Union College and the
director of the American Jewish
Marcus was undoubtedly in-
fluenced in writing these books
by the feminist movement which
succeeded in raising the con-
sciousness of many men and
women. Indeed, of the three
movements of the 1960's civil
rights. anti-Vietnam and
women's liberation it is un-
doubtedly the women's move-
ment which will have the most
lasting significance. These two
volumes provide ample basis for
that forecast.
THE FIRST book is a chrono-
logical narrative of American
Jewish history, featuring the
roles and contributions of Ameri-
can Jewish women or "Jew-
esses," as Marcus insists on call-
ing them. Similarly outdated
usages are his references to
"clubwomen" and to "girls"
when he writes about grown
In traditional fashion, Marcus
begins his history with the 23
Jews who landed in New Amster-
dam in 1654, but he gives them
short shrift and quickly moves on
to the American Revolution. He
then gives a fine picture of the
19th Century which, for Ameri-
can Jewish women, according to
Marcus, was a period of content-
ment and fulfillment with

primary emphasis on home and
The first two decades of the
20th Century saw Jewish women
emerging, first into factories and
later into community and social
work. The next 40 years were an
era of "enlargement and expan-
sion," followed finally by the
"women's revolt" from 1963 to
the present.
ALONG THE way, Marcus of-
fers fascinating vignettes and
short biographies. He gives good
accounts of the founding of
Hadassah and the National
Council of Jewish Women. Many
little known facts are recorded.
For example, did you know that
Wyatt Earp's wife was a Jew who
saw to it that the Western gun-
fighter and sheriff was buried in a
Jewish cemetery?
Or, that in addition to Polly
Adler of "A House is Not a
Home" fame, was another Jewish
madam (unnamed by Marcus)
who ran for a seat in the Nevada
State Legislature?Orthat Florida
elected a Jewish Senator in 1845
named David Levi Yulee? More
important, of course, is the atten-
tion he gives to Golds Meir. Hen-
rietta Szokl, Hannah Solomon
and other Jewish women leaders.
The companion volume, as its
name implies, is a collection of
documents pertaining to Ameri-
can Jewish women. These are raw
data for the historian, but they
make good reading for everyone
interested in Jewish affairs or the
women's movement. The docu-
ments include letters, speeches,
poems, memoirs and diaries.
THERE ARE epitaphs and
obituaries, newspaper and
journal articles, as well as or-
ganizational constitutions and
minutes. Both volumes contain
numerous illustrations, and each
is meticulously indexed. They are
useful reference works for
scholars or for others who want
to And out about a particular
Jewish woman.
The first book is worth reading
as a relatively brief American
Jewish history from an unusual
viewpoint, and the second is
wort h looking into from time to
time to remind all of us, men and
women, of our rich heritage in the
writings, the deeds and the work
of our women predecessors.

Recent regulations proposed by the U.S.
Department of Labor regarding the number
of hours and the time of day that 14 and 15-year
olds would be allowed to work "could have a
negative impact on family life and young teen-
agers' education, and is a retreat from the goals of
economic and social justice that we support," the
American Jewish Committee has declared.
In a recent letter to William M. Otter, adminis-
trator of the Department of Labor's Wage and
Hour Division, Frank Goldsmith, chair of the
human relations agency's National Education
Committee, and Howard L. Greenberger. chair of
its Employment Opportunities Committee, noted
that though the AJC recognized the need for up-
dating the permissible occupations and providing
more flexibility for teen-agers, it was "disturbed
that a rule as important as the protection of
young teen-agers from exploitation does not re-
quire a more complete analysis and public debate
before substantive revisions are proposed."

See The Light
"Looking at the Light," a
playful exhibition about mirrors
and images, shadows and light,
begins a six-week display at the
Museum of Science & Industry,
4801 E. Fowler, on Feb. 5 thru
April 3, 1983. Funded by a grant
from the National Science
Foundation, the exhibition in-
cludes some of the outstanding
science exhibits developed in re-
cent years by the Exploration,
San Franciso's innovative and
internationally known museum of
"Looking at the Light" ia a
mind-testing collection of seven-
teen exhibits designed to teach
museum visitors about the na-
ture of light and how we see it.
Try to touch a spring that ap-
pears to float in space, reflected
by a concave mirror; or cover a
wall with shadows from many
different light sources. Sit with a
partner on either side of a spe-
cially coated window and watch
your faces blend together as you
change the lighting; or duck into
a giant "kaleidoscope" a three-
sided mirrored enclosure and
see a crowd of yourself. The
magic of mirrors, shadows, and
light will have you asking
"How?" and "Why?", and these
exhibits will answer many of your
questions. These exhibits will de-
light and amuse as they instruct.
Circulated by the Association of
Science-Technology Centers,
Washington, D.C., "Looking at
the Light" was designed and
constructed by Exploratorium
staff. It will travel to twelve
cities during the course of its two-
year nationwide tour.
"Looking at the Light" will be
on display through April 3, 1983.
Museum hours are 10 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. Admission is $2 for
adults and $1 for children five to
15. For further information call

Israel. Where the warmth of belonging begins.
And you feel content in a way youVe never felt anywhere else.
Vacation in Israel this year. See the sights of your
ancient homeland from the balcony of your modern hotel.
Swim in its bright, blue seas.
Let its sunshine warm you. And its people. Israel.
Another country. Yet, somehow your own.
The Miracle On The Mediterranean:
Israel is much less expensive than many people ,h,k. For .nformaoon |(lwaisI p*^. ,, ^ traw| ^ Urae| ^J^J
