tional Council of Jewish Women
endorsed and supported the move.
Kosher corned beef sandwiches
were distributed to more than 1,000
policemen participating in the
march. A militant Jewish youth
group, "Jews for Urban Justice,"
learned that no provision had been
made for feeding the New York

came to serve as volunteer mar-
shals. The young people canvassed
kosher delicatessens which, upon

should do more to aid the war on
poverty and personally identify
themselves, acted independently.
They assembled early Wednesday

Justice recently generated a con-
troversy here by publicly urging
Jewish merchants, synagogues and
groups to make a greater response
to the needs of the poor.
The Jewish Labor Committee
withdrew its support from the mo-
bilization after Bayard Rustin step-

mobilization and chartered buses
to carry members from New York
to Washington to participate.

Lebanese Kidnap 5 Boys,
but Red Cross Interferes

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Lebanese po-
licemen kidnapped five Israeli high
school boys from Israel territory
June 12, but they were returned
safely the same afternoon following
representations by the International
Red Cross.
The five youngsters, all seventh
graders at Haifa high school, were
part of a group of 12 students
spending a two-week period of na-
tional service at Kibutz Misgav
Am, near the Lebanese border.
They were working in a field
when two Lebanese policemen
seized them at rifle point and
forced them to cross the border
into Lebanon. As soon as the inci-
dent was known, Israeli authorities
approached the International Red
Cross which promptly intervened.

Detroiters Aid Yemenite Settlement

Special to Jewish News
GIVAT YEARIM, Israel — There
are 550 residents in this Yemenite
settlement west of Jerusalem, in
what was previously known as the
Jerusalem Corridor. It started in
1950 with 350 adults and a few chil-
dren. Today there are 340 children
in the group of 550 and the settlers
—seven of whom are of army age
—are developing fruit orchards and
have begun to expand a prosperous
This site has a special interest for
Detroiters because of the projects
made possible by a generous gift
from Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Ko-
baker and Mr. Kobaker's sister,
Mrs. Joseph (Sally) Handleman.
The settlement's synagogue is
known as the Beth David Syna-
gogue and is in memory of David
Kobaker, who was a well known De-

troiter, the donor's brother, whose
will also provided for a JNF forest
in his memory in Israel.
Primary among the memorials
established by the Kobakers and
Mrs. Handleman are those in tri-
bute to their parents Jacob and
Etka and sister Jeanette.
The Jeanette Kobaker Kinder-
garten is the specific memorial to
the latter.
The Givat Yearim Moshav also
has a Samuel and Dora Kobaker
David Gabai, secretary of the

Moshav, speaks with deep appreci-
ation of the Kobaker-Handleman
gift. "Thanks to the Kobaker fam-
ily, we have been provided with
many facilities for which we are
grateful," he said. "Now we hope to
expand the synagogue and cultural
facilities which already have be-
come too small for our needs."

The entire Kobaker project was
developed under the supervision of
the Karen Kayemet Lelsrael (Jew-
ish National Fund), and under the
direction of Hanan Yarden, a pio-
neer Israeli JNF administrator.

You don't have to be
a vegetarian to enjoy
Heinz Vegetarian Beans!

And you don't have to be a non-veg-
etarian either! You can serve Heinz
Vegetarian Beans all by •themselves
as a side dish or even a main dish and
win an "A" in Meal Planning. Or
you can put a generous helping of
Heinz Vegetarian Beans on a plate

with their best-known "compan-
ions"—Kosher franks or other
Kosher delicatessen meats.That will
probably get you an "A plus". As we
said, to enjoy these tasty beans, you
don't have to be a vegetarian. You
just have to be hungry.
