Isralom Israel Homes and
Real Estate Corp., Ltd., an-
nounces the establishment of
offices for the Midwest at
10 N. Michigan Ave., Chi-
cago.
Benjamin I. Avraham of
the Isralom Israel head-
quarters has been named
Midwest representative.
Visiting with Zionist and
community leaders here to
outline the Isralom program,
Avraham explained, Tues-
day, that the growing in-
terest among American
Jews to establish their
"home away from home"
programs in Israel has in-
spired the formation of this
enterprise.
"It is already bringing im-
pressive results and many are
establishing homes in Israel,"
Avraham said. He indicated
an interest in the enterprise
in some Detroit quarters.
During 1972, its first full
year in operation, Isralom
helped more than 600 fam-
ilies from abroad acquire
residences in Israel, Avra-
ham reported. These pur-
chases are said to have total-
led more than $15,000,000. In
all, approximately 1,500
apartments were sold in
foreign currency throughout
Israel last year.
To meet this new trend
Isralom has directed its ef-
forts to two types of buyers.
The first group includes
many professionals and re-
tired couples who plan to
settle in Israel in the future.

NEW YORK (JTA)—Three
Jewish policemen have been
assigned to carry out the first
recruiting campaign in the
history of the New York City
police department to increase
the tiny proportion of Jews
in the force.
Among the 29,000 New
York's "finest," there are
currently only 806 Jewish
men and women, which adds
up to 2.7 per cent of the total.
The total number of Jews in
the city is around 2,000,000,
or about 23.2 per cent of the
total city population.
It is easy to see discrimina-
tion in those figures and, in
fact, Joel Frankel, president
of the Shomrim Society of
New York City, the socio-
religious organization of Jew-
ish police officers, did make
that charge in July.
Party in response to criti-
cism over the small number
of Jewish police officers and
partly in an effort to reach

young adults in all sections
of New York's fantastially
variegated population, Police
Commissioner Donald F.
Cawley introduced this sum-
mer a new approach to re-
cruitment methods.
College-trained Jewish po-
licemen were added to the
recruiting department,
headed by Captain Michael
J. McNulty.
The assignment for police
officers Lewis A. Berns.
Barry J. Lichtenstein and
George Drucker, is to try
to reach as many young Jews
as possible to inform them
of "the excellent career op-
portunities" in the police de-
partment.
They have visited or re-
ceived assurances of cooper-
ation from Jewish organiza-
tions.
Rabbi Alvin Kass, spiritual
director of the New York
Shomrim Society and Jewish
chaplain in the police de-
partment, has helped, as has

president of the National
