Flint Group Reports on UJA `Operation.braa

Sevin Flint' residents have re-
turned from the United Jewish
Appeal's one-week fact-finding trip
to Israel.
Dr. Ira Marder, Murray Moss.
Dr. Leon Rosky, Rabbi Gerald
Schuster, Dr. Allan Silverton, Dr.
Jack Stanzler and Hy Bergman,
joined by H. B. Shaine of Grand
Rapids, were briefed by Israeli
leaders, visited areas and installa-
tions"not normally open to tourists
and surveyed social and welfare
installations.
In six days, they covered the
country from the Galilee and the
Golan Heights to the Sinai Penin-
sula. They visited troops in the
field, greeted immigrants on arri-
val and saw how they are absorbed
into the fabric of Israeli life; they
observed educational facilities and
the aged in JDC-Malben homes;
and met young people who have
spent every night for more than
three years in border Kibutz
shelters.
Meeting with Mayor Asher Nizri
of Kiryat Shmoneh, a settlement
town for new immigrants, the mis-
sion members learned of the town's
depressed economic status and the
high population turnover. Mayor
Nizri stated that more immigrants
are needed to settle the town, and
once there is an increase in popu-
lation, industry would be devel-
oped. The people of Kiryat Shmoneh
come from 40 different countries,
but are united in the Hebrew
language. as Jews and as Israelis.
Two students from the town's
comprehensive high school told
the group about the financial
limitation on higher education
there. After 10th grade, most
teen-agers must drop out and
find Jobs. Few reach university
level, they said, adding that the
town urgently needs more schol-
krddps.
The Flint leaders also visited
Beit She'an Valley settlements
along the Jordanian front, and the
kibutzim of Kier Ruppin, Tirat
Zvi and Gelber, also on Israel's
border. There, they were shown
the shelters where youngsters have
been sleeping for the last three
years. They learned that even dur-
ing this cease fire period, more
