cipal, Rabbi Werner.
The students made beautiful pos-
ters in Hebrew throughout the
school. Some also helped with typ-
ing, filing and general office work.
School spirit was building!
The first day of school finally
came. All Akiva students and par-
ents were very surprised by the
beautiful decorations that were
made during the vacation period.
Akiva students are looking for-
ward to a very exciting and enjoy-
able year. We wish our new prin-
cipal and all the teachers the very
best of luck.

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — Prof. Ruth
Jaffe, an Israeli psychologist, has
published a report in which she
conclude's that, although Israeli
soldiers show pity and concern for
the Arab foe, they do not harbor
hatred or feeling of vengeance
against the enemy.
She further delcares that the re-
lationship between Israeli soldiers
is like that of brothers. They know

that in time of peril they will not
be abandoned by their comrades.
Not only will one help the other,
but one is even prepared to sac-
rifice his life for the other.
Prof. Jaffe writes that following
the Six-Day War, quite a few Is-
raeli soldiers spoke of a certain
"mystical feeling" which they ex-
perienced during combat, which
has nothing to do with traditional
religious behavior.
So far as their relationship to
senior officers and commanders is
concerned, they feel more like a
son feels to a father.
