Hebrew as a Lifesaving Language:

Few Immo-

Israeli Absorption Officials Insist


JERUSALEM (JTA)—Israeli of- for the operations of the Keren
Hayesod, the WZO's fund-raising
arm outside of North America.

ficials responsible for immigrant
absorption explained some of their
problems and replied to criticism .
at a session of the Zionist General
Council here.
Hillel Ashkenazi, director gen-
eral of the absorption ministry,
said that more than $3,500,000 had
been loaned to new immigrants
out of a special fund last year.
He admitted 400 newcomers had
received loans to buy cars, but
said they represented only a tiny
fraction of the 42.000 immigrants

who arrived.
The absorption ministry has

come under criticism for loaning
money to immigrants from afflu-
ent countries allegedly to purchase
cars or luxury flats.

Uzi Narkiss, head of the Jew-
ish Agency's immigration de-
partment heatedly denied that
the agency's emissaries abroad
gave prospective immigrants
false information about condi-
tions in Israel.

Ashkenazi said one of the most
difficult problems in absorbing
newcomers was employment. He
said the ministry operated a re-
training program for hundreds of
immigrants each year and that a
survey showed that 70 per cent
were satisfied with their b at
the end of a year's stay in Israel.
Mrs. Faye Schenk, of New York,
president of Hadassah, U.S., and
Mrs. Sidney Shipton, of Briton,
complained that persons over 30
were appearing in their countries
as youth representatives.
Na-rkiss reported that in certain
countries such as Chile. the Jewish
Agency's investment to encourage
immigration was failing because
of inactivity by the local com-

The General Council approved
a $35,000.000 budget for the

World Zionist Organization for
fiscal 1971.72 and a S25,000,000
budget for the operation of the

WZO's land reclamation agency,
the Jewish Natonal Fund. A

In a resolution on Jews in - the .
diaspora the council appealed to
the free world to join in denounc-
ing the "shameful oppression of
the Jews in the Soviet Union" and
pledged to continue to fight for
their right to emigrate to Israel.
The council also expressed "an-
guished concern" for the fate of
Jews "degraded and persecuted"
in the Arab countries, particularly
In other final resolutions the
Zionist Council expressed its soli-
darity with Israel, hailed the unity
of Jerusalem and expressed con-
cern over the large-scale Soviet
penetration of the Middle East.
Moshe Rivlin, executive director
of the reconstituted Jewish Agen-
cy, was elected by the council as
an associate member of the Zionist
executive. Rivlin, 46, served as
Israel's consul general in New
York from 1952 - 58.
