view of the beginnings of
Judaism, with an elective
course in "Jewish Communi-
ties of the Past.".
To illustrate the life of
ancient nomadic Jews, Hen-
rietta Nack showed how to
make pottery; Jane Cossman
and Alice Hart taught how to
bake pita and churn butter
in a chamois skin bag; Caro-
line Panzer and Mrs. Robert

and weaving; and Ed Sha-
piro directed a group in
making a large tent. Musical
instruments, patterned after
those of the biblical period,
also were made.
As a culminating activity,
the classes gathered in the
tent and conducted a worship
service which stressed the
closeness of the nomads to
nature and God.
Teachers of the multi-age
groups are Lois Stanley, Tom
Shriver and Gordon Parnes.

Volunteer in Israel Describes
Mood of Israelis as 'Tense'

David Gotlib, 23-year-old
son of Mr. and Mrs. Benzion
Gotlib and a volunteer work-
er on Kibutz Ein Gedi, de-
scribed in a letter home the
mood of Israel is following
the war.
"The psychological effect
it has on everyone, the ten-
sion, the pressure it puts
verybody through is inde-
scribable," he said. One

cially and morally, but it's
not enough. Sacrifice means
more than giving part of
what you've got left over
after all other expenses. It
means giving something up,
a vacation, a new car, a
night out on the town.

"There also is a need to
educate the American pub-
lic . . . organize a teach-in,
approach some of your
Christian friends about ad-
dressing a church group,"
Gotlib wrote.

"I want to tell you not to
worry, but to upset you so
that you in turn will upset
your friends out of their
possible complacency. The
war is not over." -
