TEL AVIV (JTA)—It was
disclosed that 57 Israeli arm-
ed forces members are still
listed as missing in action,
10 months after the Yom Kip-
pur War.
Missing soldiers include 43
who say action on the Egyp-
tian front and one on the
Syrian front; nine members
of air crews of planes believ-
ed to have gone down at sea,
two naval commandos who
disappeared after a raid on
Port Said and two soldiers
believed to have been killed
by mines in the Bitter Lake.
Although a majority of the
missing men were on the
Egyptian front, Egypt has
prevented continuation of the
search for their bodies.
When hostilities ended last
October there were 406 Is-
raelis missing on the Egyp
tion front and 38 on the
Syrian front.

The number of . people over

man said,. 31 ..pci;:-•cent. -of
the total . •ioriuratiOrt: By
1973 the number had risen
to over 200,000, or 7.5 per
cent of the population. By
1980 the number of people
over 65 will reach an esti-
mated 300,000, or 9.5 per

The report of the Associa-
tion for the Planning and
Development of Services for
the Aged-describes the crisis
in old age care that faces
Israel because of this in-
crease and the steps taken
by the association to meet
the crisis.
The association was estab-
lished in 1969 by JDC/
Malben in cooperation with
the Israel government to ex-
pand services for the aged
throughout the country. The
budget for the association's
first five years was set at
IL 53,000,000 ($12,600,000),
half appropriated by JDC/
Malben and half by the Israel
government. The JDC re-
ceives funds for its programs
in Irsael and other overseas
countries mainly from the
United Jewish Appeal.
Three regional homes for
the aged are under construc-
tion by t h e association,
Goldman said. Each will be

UOJCA Seminar

to Review Education

I

NEW YORK—A review of
new institutions and tech-
niques of Jewish education
will be a highlight of the 76th
anniversary biennial 'conven-
tion of the Union of Orthodox
Jewish Congregations of
America to be held Nov. 27-
Dec. 1 in Boca Raton. Fla.
The convention, which will
bring together lay leaders,
educators, and Torah schol-
ars will determine education-
al priorities for the Orthodox
community. They will review
the critical role that the Or-
thodox synagogue must play
in support of the day school
and yeshiva movement. as
well as the activities of the
Union's international youth
movement, the National Con-
■ ference of Synagogue Youth.

modern aids and devices for
the comfort and treatment of
old people. The home in
Afula will celebrate its open-
ing in October. The other
two, one in Acre and one in
Ashkelon, will be completed
in 1975. Still more homes
are • in various stages of
planning, he added.
In addition, Goldman
said, nine community pro-
grams have been established
providing a variety of day
care services for about 3,500
old people living in their own
homes. Stressing the impor-
tance of the community pro-
grams in delaying applica-
tions for admissions into in-
stitutions as long as possible,
he said, "Services should be
made available that will en-
able and encourage the aged
to remain in their own homes
as long as they wish or as
long as they can. That is why
these community services
provide such equipment as
hot water boilers and stoves,
meals-on-wheels, medical
help, pedicure, hobby classes
and workshops, gymnastics
and individual counseling."
The program could not
have achieved what it has,
Goldman stated, if the asso 7
ciation had not insisted from
the very beginning on local
participation in every proj-
ect.
