Israel Encourages
Volunteers to Remain

TEL AVIV—Israel is encourag-
ing young Jews, age 20 to 30, to
spend six months to a year as volun-
teers here. Col. Amihai Tsur, head
of the Volunteer Authority appoint-
ed by the government, said it is
hoped that the wartime influx of
volunteers will be transformed in-
to a sustained and organized peace-
time movement.
Even those who decide not to
settle will be considered links be-
tween the Jews of Israel and com-
munities abroad.
Some 700 of the 3.500 volunteers
who came for three or four months
changed their status to temporary
residents, which entitled them to
housing, loans and other privileges
accruing to immigrants.
Among these 700, 400 enrolled
in universities, 60 or 70 joined
kibutzim and the remainder found
jobs in the cities.

Detroiter Leon Waldman, who
graduated f r o m Mumford High
School and the University of Michi-
gan, is among 31 students who were
admitted to the school of Judaica
of the Jewish Theological Seminary
of America this month.

man of Prairie Ave., Waldman is
the second Detroit student enrolled
in the rabbinical department. An-
other, already advanced in his
preparation for the rabbinate, is
Jeffrey II. Tigay. whose parents are
Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Tigay of

Waldman. whose interest lies in
the field of Jewish education, has
already had extensive experience
working with young people. For the

tion of assistant principal and youth

LISTENING — ANYTHING BETTER?

Should we stay in — should we get out,
The UN is full of nothing but doubt,
But in desperation War to avoid,
Just be patient — don't get annoyed.
