Keren Yeladenu

I happened to visit a neighbor-
hood in Jerusalem adjoining the
border with Jordan. The new immi-
grants from oriental countries who
live in this neighborhood are mostly
poor and unemployed, living in dif-
ficult conditions.
How surprised I was when I saw
in one of the courtyards Mrs. Malka
Frankel and Rabbi Eliyahu Toran,
both of them Jerusalemites, with
a western cultural education—deep
in conversation with one of the
It was explained to me that the
two were trying to persuade a fam-
ily not to hand over their children
to the un-Jewish education of the
Christiau mission. They offered to
plat_ the children in the "Tikva-
tenu" youth center which had been
set up . in this neighborhood.
As soon as I saw this, I became
curious to see the youth center. I
arrived at an attractive and spacious
house from which could be heard
the noise of hundreds of children.
I went into the house and was sur-
prised to hear that the house be-
longed to Keren Yeladenu, whose
aim was to absorb children from
poverty-stricken neighborhoods,
chiefly dedicating its energies to
saving children from un-Jewish
education but gradually widening
the scope of its activities.
Keren Yeladenu has set up 29
youth centers throughout the
breadth of the country in which
7.000 children every day spend the
In these centers the children are
engaged in various interesting
things: song and dance, handwork
and crafts, and backward children
are helped in the preparation of
their school homework.
Those responsible for these insti-
tutions. do not rest content with the
educational care of the children
but look after the parents whose
economic situation is difficult in
order to prevent the mission ex-
ploiting their distress.

winter session here, Ben-Gurion
placed Israel's contemporary
position—internally and extern-
ally — into the perspective of
present-day world events. He
told parliament that, while
Israel was "small and poor,
with little population and bur-
dened with difficult tasks, it is
a fact that representatives from
Africa and Asia, official and
unofficial, come here to study.
Israel's instructors, experts and
technicians are invited to help
in their development."
Expressing the opinion that
"a balanced examination" of
the competition between the
"two blocs" in the "cold war"
indicated that fears of a third
world war were exaggerated,
the Prime Minister said each
of the world's two great
powers was "well aware" that
either could wipe the . other
off the face of the earth.
Asserting it was hard to
imagine that their leaders would
"delibertly bring about the de-
struction of their peoples and
countries," Ben-Gurion asserted
that the real meaning of the
phase, "the cold war," was the
struggle for the support of the
new nations of Asia and Africa,
as well as Latin Am e r lc a,
"which, together, comprise al-
most half of the human race."
Discussing Israel's security
situation, Mr. Ben-Gurion re-
called an address to Israel,s
army commanders in which he
had said that Israel's forces
could never be equal in num-
bers to that of the actual and
potential enemies of Israel, and
that only through qualitative,
moral and intellectual superior-
ity could Israel survive.
There is much to be done
in the field of education, the
Premier said, adding that "if,
Heaven forbid, we do not
manage to pass on to the
younger generation the su-
perior moral and intellectual
qualities of those who cre-
ated the State and the Israel
forces, from the War of In-
dependence to the Sinai cam-
paign, there is a danger that
the coming generation may
t r oust o r m Israel into a
Leviathan state."

Czechs Pledge Data on Eichmann;
Israel Faces Dearth of Translators

Foreign Ministry of Czechoslo-
vakia today notified the Israel
legation at Prague that it would
supply to Israel material per-
taining to the activities of Adolf
Eichmann, No. 1 Nazi mass-
murderer of Jews, during the
Nazi regime in Czechoslovakia.
Political circles here expressed
the hope that other countries

in the Soviet bloc would now
follow suit, before Eichmann is
placed on trial here.
Meanwhile, authorities here
are facing a surprising technical
problem. Despite the strong im-
pression made by the mass Ger-
man-Jewish immigration of pre-
war years on Israel's cultural,
economic and social life, a mass
shortage of German Hebrew
translators was revealed.
