"Art Forms From Israel," an
exhibit of handcrafted objects
made in the Bezalel School of
Arts and Crafts in Jerusalem,
and in the cities and collective
settlements in Israel, including
Negev Desert materials, musical
forms and other Israeli artistic
creations, will be presented at the
Detroit Institute of Arts from
Dec. 1 through Dec. 18, it was
announced by Franklin Page,
curator of modern art at the
Institute, and I. Pokempner,
chairman of the culture commis-
sion of the Jewish Community
Council, which is co-sponsor-
ing the special exhibit.
A reception, to which the
community is invited, will mark
the formal opening of the ex-
hibit next Thursday, 7 p.m.
Characterized as a "window
opening on the magic of Israel
and its people," the exhibit
was produced by the Israel
Institute of Industrial Design
in consultation with the Ameri-
can Federation of Arts. Na-
tionally it is being sponsored
by the government of Israel in
co-operation with the American
Israel Cultural Foundation and
Crafts From Israel.
On . display are ceramics,
silver, brass and copper metal-
work, jewelry, textiles, wood
and basketry. Some of the raw
materials used by the crafts-
men, such as stones from the
Negev Desert set in jewelry
and olive wood fashioned into
wooden dolls, also are shown.
The show, open to the com-
munity without admission
charge, includes specialized sec-
tions on "Forms of Nature,"
"Forms of the Desert," "Life
on the Land," "Fornis of the
Word," "Forms of Faith," and
"Forms of Life." The artifacts
are displayed in settings of
photomurals, illustrating the

of the people as they create
their own synthesis of old and
new cultural forms in the
State of Israel.
The section devoted to Forms
of the Desert includes not only
portrayels of the Negev Desert
but the camel market Of Beer-
sheba, a Bedouin woman in her
colorful native garb, camel
saddlebags, gaily decorated with
yarn embroidery, a carved
wooden coffee grinder, Arab
drums and bells for sheep and
camel and earthenware pottery.
The exhibit section marked
"Continuities" relates the shape
of the basalt bowl made about
4,000 B.C.E., to ceramic s,
jewelry and textiles being made
today.
• A local committee, heade
by Mrs. Clarence Enggass,
ranged for the exhibit • to.

issued by him on his return to
the United States.
Having consummated three
new investments and discussed
several major projects in Israel
during the past two weeks as
PEC president, Meyerhoff said
that private initiative and pri-
vate capital have made signifi-
cant contributions toward Isra-
el's economic progress over the
years, and particularly so since
he visited the country last, one
year ago.
Meyerhoff commented that
Israel's liberalized "Law for the
Encouragement of Capital In-
vestment" which provide
substantial tax and oth
ene-
fits for foreign inv ors has
materially contrib d toward
attracting new v u-re capital
