Single Immigrants
Get Special Aid

The Jewish Agency will
soon open special hostels for
young, single immigrants in
order to encourage the im-
migration of people without
families. According to the
agency's immigration and
absorption departnient,
housing for singles is still
one of the major problems
facing newcomers.
The new hostels will per-
mit single immigrants full
resident privileges for up to
five years during which pe-
riod presumably they will
marry and be entitled to
government subsidized long-
term loans for the purchase
of apartments.

Ontario Rejects
Nursing Home Fee
for Kosher Meals

Ontario Health Ministry
has denied a request by a
Toronto nursing home for
permission to raise its fees
to offset rising costs of
kosher food service. Health
Ministry officials told the
Lincoln Place Nursing
Home it could not add an ex-
tra daily charge against the
home's Jewish residents.

However, Allan Grossman,
a Jewish Cabinet minister,
who intervened on behalf of
the. Jewish community, said
it was agreed that the Jew-
ish community should un-
dertake responsibility for
the problem.
