SMALL BEQUESTS
BUILD A
STRONG ISRAEL

If the tradition of including the Jewish
National Fund in the Will of every Jew were
invariably followed, sufficient resources would
be accumulated to ensure the future of the
young Jewish State on a sound basis of land
development, social welfare, and justice.

A bequest to the Jewish National Fund
should be as traditional as having a Blue Box
in one's home.

You may want your bequest to be
dedicated to afforestation, to a village, a
Nachlah, to a children's play area, to perpetual
yahrzeit or katldish, or to some form of
permanent tribute in the names of persons
dear to you.

Consult the Foundation for Jewish
National Fund, 22100 Greenfield, 968-0820.
They will gladly co-operate with you in
working out plans to meet your special
requirements, in strict privacy.

Rafiah Area, 36 kilomet-
ers south of Gaza. This
area is of great political
and strategical impor-
tance. It lies on the coas-
tal highway. Through
many generations, ar-
mies of different nations
have waged wars on this
road. Heavy fighting was
going on here in the War
of 1948, in the Suez Cam-
paign in 1956 and in the
Six-Day War in 1967.
Recently great de-
velopment took place in
this area. Desert turned
into gardens. New Jewish
settlements rose over-
night. Soil is fertile. It is
hoped this area may be-
come a fruit field to grow
fruits for export to
Europe.
All kinds of fruits and
vegetables are groWn
here. The whole scenery
has changed from brown
to green. The success of
the new Jewish settle-
ments promises a great
future.
The first settlement —
Ladot — was established
five years ago. It has de-
veloped rapidly. There are
still some Arab laborers
working in the settlement,
but they will be replaced
soon by Jewish settlers.
A year ago the building
of a new city, Yamit was
started. There are al-
ready 200 families there..
Hundreds of new apart-
ments were built for new
settlers. New roads were
constructed. The settle-
ments in this area are:
Ladot, Netiv HaAssara
(in memory of 10 soldiers
who were killed here
when their 'helicopter
crashed( Ugda Haploda
(in memory of the victori-
ous tank brigade corn-
manded by General Israel
Tal during the Six-Day
War) Nir Avraham (in
memory of the late Labor
leader Abraham
Harsfeld) and Talme

Josef Weitz. In the near
future building of the new
settlement "Prier will
start.
The chief instructor of
agricultural work in the
area Josef Nachmios told
us: "We are now prepar-
ing the establishement of
two new kibutzim in this
area Sukot and Huliot.
We already have here
Ahusiat (a military set-
tlement of Nahal soldiers)
and other Nahal settle-
ments like Dikla, Mas-
sura, Nahal Morag,
Nahal Sinai, Nahal Katif,
Nahal Nzarim and
Tarssag. We also shall
build here a center called
Avshalom in memory of
the Nili-leader Avshalom
Feinberg.
By 1980, 15 settlements
will be in this area. They
will be the continuation of
the Eshkol-area and the
Jewish settlements in the
Western part of the
Negev. The colonization
department of the Jewish
Agency plans to build 15
more settlements in this
area. The settlers.work in
planting flowers and veg-
etables for export. They
use the most modern
machinery and intend to
plant subtropic trees and
raise chickens.
The colonization in the
Rafiah area and Eshkol
area is based on a yearly-
quota of 8,000 - 9,000 liters
of water for each family.
Each new settlement will
require one million liters
of water for one year.
The colonization de-
partment of the Sokhnut
insists, that the water
should be used only for in-
tensive growing, which
would promote the Israeli
export. It is already
known, that in order to
keep up the development
plan of the area, 6 million
liters water would have to
come 'from the central
water pipe line of the
