TEL AVIV — If Israel
aspires to replace Paris
as the fashion capital of
the world — and attract
more American buyers in
the process — it will have
to make changes and the
biggest change of all will
have to be jettisoning the
idea that things can't be
Changed.

were offered by Elmer
Winter, president of the
American Jewish Com-
mittee and chairman of
the Committee for the
Economic Growth of Is-
rael. Winter, who was on
a study mission in Tel
Aviv last month, ob-
served that if Israel can
build a "Kfir - — the
highly , sophisticated
supersonic fighter plane
— it can make shoes that
don't pinch and shirts
that fit. He made his re-
marks as the local fashion
industry was in the final
stages of preparation for
Israel Fashion Week to be
held in Jerusalem Aug.
23-26.
There are some 80 fash-
ion houses participating,
some of them already
working on models for the
spring and summer of
1977.
This reporter visited
two of the leading ones —
, Aled, which specializes in
knitwear, and Beged-Or, a
leather specialty house.
They are known through-
out> the world for high
quality and, anticipating
Winter's injunction, they
have kept pace with, the
times and with changing
tastes.
The Alec' label was de-
rived from the name of
Alfred Edelstein who op-
erated a successful knit-
wear factory, in Czechos-
lovakia before World War
IL A far-sighted entrep-
reneur, he sent his four
daughters, all trained at
the family factory, to
Palestine when war
clouds gathered over
Europe. With a few
machines they opened a
small shop.
Their father disap-
peared in the Holocaust.
But the sisters utilized
their skills and European
know-how to build an en-
viable reputation in the
Palestine of the Mandate
period. Their customers
included the elite of
British officialdom and
the wives of Arab
sheikhs. The kn. itting
shop developed into a
major factory, run now by
a third generation of the
family.
The going wasn't all
smooth. For a while the

Judaism Institute
Course Will Begin

The Institute for
Judaism, which conducts
classes for conversion to
Judaism, will begin its fall
semester • 7:30 p.m.
Thursday at Cong. Beth
Shalom.
This class, under the
auspices of the Conserva-
tive Rabbis of Metropoli-
tan Detroit, covers basic
material in the fields of
Jewish history, religious
observances, Jewish be-
liefs and other matters
basic to Jewish life.
Every student must
have a sponsoring rabbi.
The prospective or pre-
sent mate, if there is one,
must attend class to-
gether with the candidate
for conversion. The
course extends for 18
weeks.
For information, call
Rabbi Max Weine, 543-
2176.

enjoyed a vogue in the
American market. Apart.
from the undeniable high
quality of the goods,
there was a sentimental
attachment of American
Jews to any product corn-
ing from Israel, not-
withstanding their high
prices.
But sentiment began to
wane over the years, espe-
cially .as the American
market became flooded
with low-priced European
and Japanese knitwear.
Aled had to seek new
foreign outlets and found
them in South Africa, Au-
stralia and Europe.
Avner Zentner, grand-
son of Alfred Edelstein,
said that it was Aled's
quality and original de-
signs that captured the
eyes of buyers. Currently,
Aled sells a half million
dollars worth of its ap-
parel lines in the U.S. but
more than that in
Europe.
Beged-Or also has
European antecedents
although its name has
become synomous with
Migdal HaEmek, a town
in lower Galilee west of
Nazareth.
It was founded by Les-
lie Fulop, a Hungarian
Jew who came to Pales-
tine during the war
years. But his first shop
did not start production
until 1959 in Migdal
HaEmek, then a tiny new
immigrant village. Origi-
nally, Fulop employed six
workers. Today he
employs more than 1,000
and the success of his en-
terprise contributed
greatly to the growth of
the town which now has a
population of tens of
thousands. -
The township, in fact, is
centered on the fashion
industry. There is a
Helena Rubinstein plant
there, too. Beged-Or has a
$10 million annual turn-
over, and 90 percent of its
goods are for export. The
U.S. tops the list of buyers

for many leather is still
too exotic. So Beged-Or
will have wool, silk and
cotton on display during
Fashion Week. Israeli
fashions have become an
export item that counts,
according to the organiz-
ers of the show Senti-
ment plays a part, but
mainly it is, quality and
design, _hey say.
