Juvenile Delinquency Decline Aided by Rabbis in Boro Park

BY BE EN GALLOB

(Copyright 1976, JTA, Inc.)'

A federally-funded pro-
ject to provide counseling
and treatment to problem
children of Hasidic. and ul-
tra-Orthodox families to
prevent them from becom-
ing juvenile delinquents has
been functioning since the
start of November in Brook-
lyn's. Boro Park section,
which has New York City's
heaviest concentration of
Orthodox Jews.

The project is part of a
program of service to the
Orthodox community car-
ried on by Jewish Parents
United, a member agency of
the Council of Jewish Or-
ganizations of Boro Park. It
operates on a one-year grant
of $250,000 from the federal
Safe Streets Act, funneled
to the JPU through New
York State and the Mayor's
Criminal Justice Coordinat-
ing Council, according to
Rabbi Burton Jaffa, JPU
director.

Reports Claim Rabin, Hussein
Have Been Meeting Secretly

CHICAGO — High Israeli
and well-placed United
States sources report that
Prime Minister Yitzhak .
Rabin met secretly with
King Hussein of Jordan dur-
ing the past three to six
months, according to New-
sweek magazine.
The sources add that this
was only the latest in a se-
ries of such talks and lower-
level Israeli-Jordanian con-
tacts have taken place be-
fore and since.

Newsweek reports that
while the atmosphere was
cordial at the meeting with
Rabin, Hussein took a tough
stand, refusing to accept the
return of the West Bank so
long as Israel insisted on
maintaining a defense line
along the Jordan River.
Hussein also demanded that
half of Jerusalem be re-
turned to his control.

The disclosure of the se-
cret talks between the Israe-
lis and the Jordanians
serves to undercut critics
who have charged that Jeru-
salem is not interested in
solving the Palestinian
problem through direct ne-
gotiations with Hussein. -

He said JPU has a staff of
four part-time psycholo-
gists, as well as full-time so-
cial workers and counselors,
all Orthodox Jews. He said
the current caseload of the
organization is 90 children,
with a ratio of about seven
boys to three girls.
Rabbi Jaffa said that
until the project was
started last Nov. 5, par-
ents of such children had
nowhere to go for help be-
cause they refused to go to
a non-Orthodox Jewish
facility. He added that the
JPU policy is to work with
children and thus obtain
the trust of the parents,
many of whom are initially
hostile either because they
fear the problems of their
children will become
known in the community,
or because they refuse to
believe there is anything
wrong with their children.

The children are usually
referred for treatment by
principals of yeshivot they
attend. In situations where
parents, on being called for
permission for JPU profes-
sionals to see their children,
refuse such permission, the
JPU turns to the rebbe of
the sect to which the par-
ents belong, who orders par-,
ental compliance. In the
Hasidic community, this is
sufficient, Rabbi Jaffa said.
Among Orthodox fainilies
the rabbi of the congrega-
tion to which the parents
belong is called in for assist-
ance.
The JPU has an advisory
board which includes Boro
Park's leading Hasidic and
Orthodox personalities, in-
cluding yeshiva heads,
Rabbi Jaffa said, stressing
that such community sup-
port is indispensable' to the
functioning of the project.

Italian Countess Promoting
Israeli Scientific Exchange



By MOSHE RON

Jewish News Special
Israel Correspondent

JERUSALEM — After
the Six-Day-War, Italian
Countess Antonia Cardeli
suddenly disappeared from
her palace in Rome. She ex-
changed her luxury apart-
ment for a small, modest
room in Kibutz Givat Bren-
ner near Rehovot, Israel.
"I felt that as an idealist,
I must voluntarily come to
live, and work in a 'kibutz,"
said the countess.
The countess held the
honorary title of 'chairman
for the Weizman Institute
in Italy. This title she ac-
cepted on the advice of the

former Israeli Ambassador
in Rome, Ehud Avriel. She
organized the visit of two
delegations of Italian scien-
tists-to Isi4 ael. Now she is or-
ganizing a third delegation
fora February visit.
"In Europe there is no
right attitude towards Is-
rael," she said. "People
think Israel is a country of
wars and kept up by a big
military force. The great
scientific activity and its
successes are hardly
known in Italy."
The countess maintains,
that even spending three
days in Israel is important
for scientists to see the posi-
- tive sides of Israel. The
guests get a feel of the coun-
try through personal con-
tacts. This is very important
for Israel , and the Jewish
people as anti-Semitism is
growing in Italy.
Last year the countess
organized a delegation of 30
Italian scientists who came
to Israel, including former
Italian Minister for Culture
Giovami Sfadalini. He dec-
lined an appeal of the Ital-
ian Minister of Foreign Af-
fairs not to participate.
The Ministry forbade him
to make speeches in Israel,
but Spedalini held press
conferences at the Rome
airport before departing
and after returning from
Israel. He called the ouster
of Israel from UNESCO as
the ouster of a most out-
standing cultural people.
The countess Cardeli
intends to stay in Israel
permanently. She said
that people in Israel show
more interest and dedicate
more time to establishing
human contacts.
"If I have not settled
permanently in Israel, it is
because I fulfill a more im-
portant mission for Israel
in Rome. Sooner or later
my last station will be in
Israel."

NEW YORK — Agudath
Israel of America has an-
nounced plans to step-up its
activities on behalf of 200
home-bound Jewish elderly
in Brooklyn using 250 youth
volunteers.
The Agudath Israel pro-
ject involves youngsters
from all day Jewish high
schools from the organiza-
tion's affiliated youth
groups, who spent their ex-
tra curricular hours helping
200 aged in Brooklyn corn-
munitieS with large num-
bers of Jewish elderly. In
addition to . the "meals on
wheels" program in which
kosher nutritious meals are
delivered daily, the youth
volunteers do such house-
hord chores as shopping,
light cleaning and perform
errands.
The project is part of
Agudath Israel's commis-
sion on senior citizens,
which operates five loca-
tions for the elderly in the
borough of Brooklyn alone,
serving 8,000 senior citizens,
more than 1,000 daily.
In addition to the kosher
hot nutritious meals, each
of these centers provides a
full list of information and
