Commentary on Israel Today- Young Israel Senior Citizens' Residence
(Continued from Page 2)
There are only 300 Israeli ad-
ministrators in the occupied Arab
areas, in, addition, of course, to
the army , that is seldom in evi-
dence. And this handful supervis-
es affairatthat benefit the Arabs.
An interesting factor: Arabs in
the new Israeli territories are per-
mitted to ‘:consider themselves Jor-
daniani.!. If they had government
jobs, as in the instance of the
Arab expert at the experimental
station here, they continue to draw
Jordanian pay. But they also draw
Israeli pay—again, without restric-
tions. So. ;the vanquished get dou-

Morris Schaver and his wife Em-
ma, the occasion also was high-
lighted by the inauguration of the
Shtetl Exhibition Hall.
Both the Shtetl Hall inauguration
and the presentation of the shtetl
carvings are the result of a deep
interest by Mrs. Schaver, which
was shared by 'her late husband,
in perpetuating interest in Old
World historical relics.
The Californian Berel Satt had
created the carvings and they were
acquared by the Schavers 12 years
ago. They first were displaed in
Stockholm in 1959, during the ses-
sions of the World Jewish Con-
gress, then held in the Swedish
capital. At that time, Detroit's
WJC delegates, this correspondent
and his wife, the Schavers, the
Morris Adlers and Rabbi Leon
Fram, and the Schavers' son It-
zhak, played an active part in the
display of the Satt shtetl carvings.
The Tel Aviv museum is the
proper place to house these carv-
ings, and the presence of Mrs.
Schaver at the presentation was
an appropriate continuation of ded-
ication to art in relation to Jewry

Arab terrorism did have an ef-

Israeli planes, the bombings, espe-
cially the scare headlines in news-
papers in many countries contrib-

to 408,000 tourists from the previ-

But it's picking up anew. De-
cember showed a 6 per cent in-
crease over the same month in
1968 and the hotels are nearly
fully booked for Passover and for
the months before and after. Like
the Arab boycott, the terror scare
is diminishing in scale.
