8-Story Hotel
in Jerusalem

make an all-out effort to pre-
vent the construction of an
eight-story hotel in the Oma-

The group, calling itself the
Council for a Beautiful Is-
rael, claimed that a meeting
of the district planning com-
mittee which approved the
hotel was illegal because the
public was not represented
as required by law.
The proposed 350 - r o o m
hotel is to be built by El Al,
Israel's airline. Parents of
children attending a school
on the park grounds have
protested the planning com-
mittee's recommendation to
raze the school to make
room for the hotel. The con-
servationists are planning an
appeal to the National Plan-
ning and Building Council.
They say the hotel would ruin
the park and spoil the view
of the Old City skyline.

They See Up There!

Strange things have been
taking place!
High up in the astro-labs,
they have been making stud-
ies of the urban spread in
California and finding out
what crops are best suitable
for different localities in the
state. We understand, by re-
quest, they have made sim-
ilar studies of portions of Is-
rael's soil.
It would seem these stud-
ies could be better made in
the localities involved, but
apparently, way up in outer
space, thousands and thou-
sands of miles away, they
can see better what is taking
place here than we can on
There is an old Jewish
story. A hackman is driv-
ing the rabbi to a nearby
Polish village. On the way,
they pass a Polish noble-
man's estate and the hack-
man sees a bale of hay which
he could use. So he stops and
runs to the hay and is about
to move it when the rabbi
calls out, "They see! They
see!" Quickly the hackman
drops the hay and returns to
his wagon. He drives on but
looking back, he sees no one.

"Why," he asks the rabbi,
"did you say they see.? There
is no one there."
"Up there, they see," the
rabbi said, pointing to the
Seems like the rabbi was
right. They see up there what
we don't see so easily below.
Seeing has many peculiar-
ities. The Baal Shem Tov
pointed out that while we
can't see ourselves very well,
if we look at our neighbors,
they may serve as mirrors in
which we can see ourselves.
In their good and bad qual-
ities, we can study our good
and bad and the lesson that
he drew was that we should
use this "mirror" to develop
our good traits.
Apparently the move in
outer space is paying off.

There is generally some ben-

When the Israelites took
that little trip out of Mitzra-

probably many of them said,
"Why didn't Moses take us

With Heartfelt Gratitude ..

We express our appreciation to the hundreds of supporters of
Bar-Ilan University for their cooperation in making Detroit a leading
community of action in behalf of higher traditional education in Israel.

Our thanks go forth to our many friends, to Dr. Leon Fill and his
committee, for the successful 18th anniversary Dinner, on Sept. 20.

We take this opportunity to recall the pioneering efforts of those
families in whose homes our initial organizational meetings were held 18
years ago:

Daniel Temchin Family
Abraham Nusbaum Family
Irving W. Schlussel Family
Isaac and Minna Rosenthal Family

The families of these pioneers are always with us, and at this time
of sacred remembrance we are especially appreciative of their dedication
to our great tasks for Jewish learning.

Our blessings go forth to the pioniers and to all friends and associ-
ates for a Very Happy Year.
