Passover Tourists to Israel
Met by Rare Heat Wave

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
An unusual heat wave
swept through the country
on the eve and during the
first day of Passover.
The accompanying sand
storms and near zero visibil-
ity marred the holiday fes-
tivities of picnickers and
forced the suspension of in-
land air traffic. The airports
at Eilat an- d Tel Aviv were
closed down for several
hours and pilots encoun-
tered difficulties landing
and taking off at Ben-Gur-
ion Airport.

In Jerusalem, thousands
of Christian pilgrims
streamed into the city to
mark the Easter ceremo-
nies.
Israeli troops and pol-
icemen guarded the Chris-
tian procession from roofs
and doorways of the Old
City, but no incidents were
reported.
Meanwhile, the Haifa
port played host to a flotilla
of luxury cruise ships over
the week-end including the
65,000 gross ton, 960-foot
Cunard ship Queen Eliza-
beth 2 which landed 1,200
tourists last Friday. Special
security measures were
taken to protect the giant
British vessel, the last of the
"superliners" still in active
service.

`Aguna Status
Dropped for 1,000

HAIFA (JTA) — Months
of labor by a special Beit
Din (religious court) to
make positive identification
of Israel's Yom Kippur War'
dead has resulted in reliev-
ing almost 1,000 war wid-
ows of the status of aguna,
thereby permitting them to
re-marry if they wish.
Aguna is the halakhic ,
term for a woman whose
husband is missing but is
not known with absolute
certainty to be dead.
There is no longer a single
case of aguna, according to
Deputy Chief Chaplain of
the Army Col. Gad Navon.
Navon was a member of the
special court as was the
Chief Chaplain of Israel's
armed forces, Gen. Morde-
chai Prion and Sephardic
Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.
