of the Community Action for
Legal Services.
- According to Steven M.
Bernstein, attorney in charge
of the new office at 130 Clin-
ton St., the service is operat-
ing under a $300,000 grant
from the Office bf Economic
Opportunity and is especially
designed to assist Yiddish-
speaking clients.
Its staff includes 10 at-
torneys, half of whom are
Yiddish-speaking, and the
program will engage in out-
reach activities directed at
hasidic and elderly Jews who
may not have been served
by existing programs.
Under federal funding, the
CALS office is non-sectarian
and will also serve poor and
elderly from other minority
groups. In establishing the
new office, CALS worked
closely with the Advisory
Board for Legal Assistance
to the Jewish Poor, Bern-
stein said. Its primary geo-
graphical focus will be on
Williamsburg, Crown Heights
and Boro Park, areas of large
Jewish residents.

Ayalons to Be
in Flint Show

Mr. and Mrs. Kooistra
worked with the Dutch under-
ground from 1942 to 45 and
risked their own and their
young children's lives. The
h o use adjoined several
homes, but the presence of
the Jews was never known
to the neighbors.
Mrs. Kooistra would jour-
ney out on a bicycle to find
enough food to feed the 13
people dependent upon her,
even thOugh Holland was
plagued with severe short-
ages at that time. Mrs. Koois-
tra, who was pregnant with
her fourth child, had been
warned by her physician that
she needed complete bed
rest and relaxation during
this pregnancy. However, her

son was born healthy, despite
the pressures she experienc-
ed.
Upon leaving the Kooistra
home, several of their board-
ers emigrated to Israel. One
of them, Ellis, a girl of 10 at
the time of her hiding, saved
money for many years so
that in 1958 she was able to
send them plane tickets to
come to Israel and celebrate
Israel's 10th birthday with
her and her family. At that
time, Kooistra took many
slides which he used during
more than 500 lectures on Is-
rael which he has given in
Holland.
Ellis also told the Koois-
tras' story to the Israeli
government, which took a full
year to verify the details. In
1973, I s r a el invited the
Kooistras to come to Israel
and presented them with the
Yad Va'Shem Award. This
award is given by the state
of Israel to non-Jews who
saved Jewish lives during the
Holocaust: Their names are
inscribed in a special golden
book in Jerusalem, where the
award was presented.
Anneke, one of the Koois-
tra daughters, has since mar-
ried Donald Burke, a Jew,
and they now reside with
their children in Marysville.
She will interpret for her
parents, who do not speak
