Prof. Lewin recommends
avoiding sleeping pills as
much as possible. While they
extend the amount of quiet or
"passive" sleep, they reduce
the amount of "active", or
deep sleep and are likely to
leave the person sluggish

when he wakes us.

"A similar feeling occurs
from oversleeping", says the
Bar-Ilan professor. Just like
overeating, it creates an
imbalance between what the
body needs and what it gets.

Finally, Prof. LeWin
recommends against waking
up in the middle of a dream
(if you can help it), since
dreams occur during "active"
sleep, thus leaving the sleeper
with a bad feeling and much
difficulty in falling asleep
again. Sweet

Migdal Oz, a New Settlement

ByMOSHE RON

.

The Jewish News
Special Israel Correspondent

_TEL AVIV—In a quiet
rustic area, far from
dynamic Israel, among 800
meter-high mountains, a
new - Jewish settlement,
Migdal Oz (Strong
Fortress), has been
established.
The settlement was
founded by young people of
the religious Bnei Akiva
movement. There was no
'advance publicity when
they began the settlement;
they simply set up camp
and the building began.
The new kibutz will be an
important security link in
the Etzion block in Judea,
not far from Hebron. It
was here that Jewish
settlements were occupied
and destroyed by the
Jordanian Arab Legion in
the 1948 Israel War of
Independence.
Since the Six Day War of
June 1967, five Jewish
settlements have been
established in the area,
started mostly by children
of the original settlers.
The new settlements
today, however, are still

located near densely
populated Arab areas, and
it is believed that if what
happened in 1948 is to be
avoided, more Jewish
settlements must be
established in the
40-kilometer strip between
Jerusalem and Hebron.
The settlers have to face
a great many difficulties,
however. The earth is hard
and stony, but the settlers
will get fields nearby for
agricultural use. They
intend to establish a
chicken farm and light
industry on the kibutz. In
the meantime, they already
have electricity and a
security' fence.
The young settlers of
Migdal Oz are confident of
their future and look to
success. They have Already
succeeded in fostering good
relations with their Arab
neighbors.
The inhabitants of the
nearby Arab village of Bet
Fajr wished the new
Jewish settlement success.
The country is large, the
Arabs told them, and there
is room for all who wish to
work and build. The Arabs

stressed the importance of
friendly relations.
The inhabitants of Bet
Fajr recalled the
destruction of the Jewish
settlements in the Etzion
block in 1948: They blamed
the British Mandatory
authorities for the tragedy,
whom they claim incited
the Arabs against the Jews.
The settlers of Migdal Oz
say they are not entirely
confident in the assurance
and wishes of their Arab
neighbors, and they are
aware of the wid
campaign against
establishment of Jewis
settlements in the Etzion
area.
They also accept the fact
that it may take years until
their Arab neighbors will
learn to accept the
existence of a neighboring
Jewish settlement.
The Jewish settlers
believe, however, that with
.attempts at good will,
understanding and mutual
tolerance, the mountainous
area between Jerusalem
and Hebron can be
resettler, renewed and
developed by Jewish youth.
