TEL AVIV—Through the
introduction of modern equip-
ment and new teaching meth-
ods in Israeli schools, Shema,
a voluntary Israel parents
association supported by
Malben, the Joint Distribu-

education, Dr. Yehoshua
Mazur, chairman of the or-
ganization, declared in an

Foreign Words Used
in Hebrew Catalogued
JERUSALEM—After seven
months' work, during the
last academic year, the "De-
scriptive Study on Foreign
Words Used in Hebrew To-
day" has been completed
and published by the David
Yellin Hebrew Teachers Col-
lege, under the guidance of
Dr. Reuben Sivan, linguist
and Hebrew language teach-
er at the college.
The study was financed by
the ministry of education and
culture and is being dis-
tributed to all teachers col-
leges throughout Israel.
Words were selected from
everyday speech, radio, tele-
vision, the press and con-
temporary literature. The
words were then categorized,
analyzed and recorded to
show the presence of foreign
words in modern Hebrew.
