Israel's consul general in
New York, Uri Ben-Ari,
said that although major
efforts - have been made
by the consulate in in-
formation there is still
much to be done. He said
the consulates lack the
funds and manpower
necessary for the task.
Addressing -a press con-
ference at the consulate,
Ben-Ari noted that the
main target is to reach
"the Jewish masses" in
the tri-state area of New
York, New Jersey and
Connecticut.
Noting that since the
successful rescue opera-
tion at Entebbe Airport
there has been a "honey-
moon" between the.
American media and the
cause of Israel, he,warned
nonetheless that in the
future Israel could face a
situation in which the
media will not be so
favorably responsive.
Ben-Ari pointed out that
for a long time the Israeli

stand on the Palestine
Liberation Organization
was not accepted by the
American media, until 're-
cently when the war in
Lebanon caused a change
in this attitude.

Yaakov Levy, informa-
tion officer at the consu-
late, said the consulate's
efforts in information
have been largly aimed
during . the last few
months at political and
economic groups; educa-
tional systems, including
universities, high schools
and parochial schools; the
general media, with em-
phasis on non-
metropolitan newspap-
ers; ethnic and religious
groups and the Jewish
community.

late, he added, also has
four different radio talk
shows which are broad-
cast weekly by 300 \radio
stations throughout the
country. In addition,
printed material and
posters on the achieve-
ments of Israel are distri-
buted, he said.

Levy said that at least
200 lectures a month are
arraiged by the consu-
late and more than 100
different films of Israel
are shown at least 500
times a month before var-
ious groups. The Consu-

U.S. Rabbinical Students

Schools
forerunner of an attempt

May the coming year be one filled
with health, happiness and
peace for all mankind

Jennie and Sol King

NEW YORK—A group
of 15 students from
American rabbinical
seminaries are in Sao
Paulo, Brazil, to upgrade
Jewish education in
Brazil's largest Jewish
city.
The Sao Paulo project is
part of the SEED prog-
ram launched by Torah
Umesorah—The Na-
tional Society for Hebrew
Day Schools, which is now
providing links with
communities in South
and Central America
along with the 165 com-
munities • in North
America where Torah
Umesorah has estab-
lished Hebrew day
schools.
Rabbi Joshua Fishman,
a Torah Umesorah staff
member and executive
secretary of the National
Conference of Yeshiva
Principals, said that the
SEED project is a

to establish in Sao Paulo a
rabbinical seminary and
a post graduate talmudi-
cal school known as a kol-
lel and devoted to tal-
mudic research.
Rabbi Fishman said in
his rurvey of Jewish edu-
cation in Sao Paulo that
primary school students
have no role models, no
older tutors and no
facilities in Brazil for con-
tinuing Jewish education
on college or post
graduate level.
Umesorah's
Torah
SEED project, which
reaches out every sum-
mer to communities in
North America which do
not have facilities for
higher Jewish schools,
has been involved this
year for the first time
with communities beyond
the U.S. such as Caracas,
Venezuela, and Panama
City and now Sao Paulo,
Brazil.
