held at the session of the
General Council "closest"
to the date on which the
position became vacant.
That date was last Au-
gust when WZO Chair-
man.Pinhas Sapir died
suddenly.
Almogi, a 65-year-old
veteran Laborite who re-
signed from the cabinet
in 1974 to become mayor
of Haifa, was strongly
backed 'by the Labor
Party who selected him
to. oppose Dulzin, a
leader of Likud. He was
elected by a combination
of Labor, Mapam, Inde-
pendent Liberal and
General Zionist votes.
The Mizrachi religious
faction split.
Prior to the voting,
Premier Yitzhak Rabin
engaged in intensive
personal lobbying for
Almogi. His efforts
were credited with
bringing some Mizrachi
votes and other waver-
ers into the Almogi col-
umn. Dulzin's support-
ers had hoped to corral
some Labor Party dissi-
dents or at least more
blank ballots but their
efforts failed.
The four-day meeting

DETROIT: Northland. Eastland. Westland. Southland.
12541 Washington Blvd. and on Broadway at Gratiot •Ann Arbor • Flint • Toleck,

cember's international
conference on solidarity
with Zionism. Rabin,
Dulzin, and Jerusalem
Mayor Teddy Kollek ad-
dressed the opening ses-
sions, and the final ses-
sion was devoted to a
ceremonial celebration of
the 75th anniversary of
the Jewish National
Fund and was addressed
by Yaacov Tsur, chair-
man of the JNF Board.
Dulzin, in his speech,
demanded that every
family that calls itself
Zionist send at least one
member to Israel as a
settler and "he will bring
the others." Dulzin also
accused government eco-
nomic policies of discour-
aging aliya.
Dulzin took issue with
the Treasury for al-
legedly failing to under-
stand the interrelation
between aliya and Is-
rael's economic situation
and failure to consult
with the Zionist.move-
ment on the possible ef-

fects of economic issues
on immigration.
"Economic slowdown
and unemployment will
cause not only a drop in
aliya but also yer-
ida (emigration)," he
warned.
He said the entire ab-
sorption machinery
needed investigating and
proposed a united ab-
sorption authority incor-
porating the government,
the Jewish Agency and
voluntary organizations.
He said that aliya em-
issaries sent abroad
should no longer be se-
le'cted on a political basis
but open to general appli-
cants which would ena-
ble' every Jew to propose
himself as a candidate.
With respect to prepa-
rations for the next
World Zionist Congress
to be held in Jerusalem
at the -end of the year,
Dulzin said the affilia-
tion of international Jew-
ish organizations with
the WZO was a good

start but further changes
in the Zionist movement
were required.
"I call upon the polit-
ical parties to give up
willingly part of their
power to make the Zion-
ist movement not only a
movement of a million
registered members but
a movement of the ma-
jority of the Jewish peo-
ple," he said.
Rabin denied that the
government's budget
prevented aliya. "There
will not be a happier man
than Finance Minister
Yehoshua Rabinowitz to
present an additional -
budget for aliya — if
immigrants come," Ra-
bin declared.

Former Detroiter Is Head
of Special School in Haifa

HAIFA — The Golomb
School for the Minimally
Brain Damaged is located in
one of Haifa's half-residen-
tial, half-business - districts,
not too far from the port.
The grounds are inade-
quate, the building nothing
more than an old Arab
home converted into a series
of makeshift classrooms,
and the modern educational
equipment all but non-exis-
tent.
However,, all 23 students
appear unaware of their
misfortune and wander
happily about in a seem-
ingly haphazard fashion
which is, in reality, part of a
highly structured and crea-
tive learning problem. -
The school's principal,
Irwin Bloom, a 40-year-old
Detroit-born Los Angeles-
educated administrator,
has become something of a
legend.
Bloom first came to Israel
as a volunteer during the
Six-Day War. Given charge
of all volunteers in the
Southern Sinai, he was told
to move out all the equip-
ment the Egyptians had left
behind. Things went well
until six months later when
he woke up in Jerusalem's
Hadassah Hospital with
paratyphoid fever.
Bloom returned to Israel
in 1969 armed with a mas-
ters in education, a masters
of psychology and six differ-
ent credentials certifying
him to teach everything
from regular school and
Jewish history to children
who were partially sighted,
emotionally disturbed, af-
fected by cerebral palsy, or
neurologically handicapped.
In 1971 Bloom became
the principal of Golomb
School. The school began
in a Haifa apartment by
two teachers who agreed
to work with a group of
private students.
Bloom began to train the
teachers to deal with learing
disabilities. He made class-

"All That The Name Implies"

rooms where there were
none, personally painting
walls and gathering equip-
ment. He brought in volun-
teers to lower the teacher-
pupil ratio, an unheard of
thing, which caused "a large
ruckus" but which later
proved to be one of his most
successful projects.
Today there are 22 adults
working with 23 kids,
among -them -a series of
Musicians and artists who
donate several hours a week
to the school.
