Institute of Science. The
Belgian-Israeli Symposium
on Photochemical and
Photobiological Energy
Conversion featured 25 lec-
tures on solar energy re-
search and was sponsored
by the Belgian Prime
Minister's Office and the Is-
rael National Council for
Research and Development.
Among the subjects dis-
cussed were the uses of
plants and photosynthetic
bacteria to produce fuels,
including hydrogen and
glycerol, and some new
types of solar cells capable
' of generating as well as
storing electrical energy.
Aside from an exchange
of information between the
participants — half Belgian
and half Israeli — the meet-
ing served to encourage in-
formal contacts between the
scientists and may lead to
'cooperative Belgian-Israeli
solar research efforts.
The symposium included
field visits to solar installa-
tions in Israel's Negev des-
ert.

The world's largest limes-
tone quarry is located at
Rogers City, Mich., and the
world's largest cement
plant at Alpena.

Varied Jewish Life in Geneva

By TAMAR LEVY
(Copyright 1878, JTA, Inc.)

Geneva's small Jewish
community — numbering
only 4,000 — offers almost
as much variety within it-
self as this historic interna-
tional city does as a whole.
To examine it is to become
vividly aware of the
pluralism of Jewish life.
Geneva's Jews are di-
vided into four religious
communities, each with its
own synagogue, rabbi and
communal committee. The
largest is the Communaute
Israelite, headed by Rabbi
Alexander Safran. It oper-
ates the Jewish community
center on the Rue St. Leger
which houses social serv-
ices, a library, youth center,
Hebrew school and nursery
school.
The second largest is the
Sephardic community
which has its synagogue on
the Rue de Malagnou,
headed by Rabbi H. Hadzis.
The Malagnou Synagogue
is one of the most elaborate
in Europe. Its huge assem-
bly hall is the scene of
Geneva Jewry's biggest so-
cial events. It was there that
Israeli Premier Menahem
Begin delivered a fund-
raising speech last De-
cember.

"Carmel" and publish a
weekly review. Geneva
also has a long roster of

Jewish organizations.
These include the Ben-
Gurion University
Friendship Association;
Bnei Akiva; Bnai Brith;
Keren Kayemet LeIsrael;
Hebrew University
Friendship Association;
Keren Hayesod; Esther's
Daughters; WIZO;
Friends of Kiryat Jearim;
the Zionist Society; He-
brew Circles; Jewish
Women's Club; and the
Sephardi Women's Club.
There are also, in Geneva,
the offices of the Woild
the
Jewish Congress,
American Joint Distribu-
tion Committee, ORT and
the ORT school. The Jewish
Agency office, opened in
1922, closed down last
month for economy reasons
and its personnel returned
to Israel.
Economic difficulties af-
fect Jewish and general ac-
tivities. The rising value of
the Swiss franc against the
U.S. dollar created a panic
in the international and
private organizations with
headquarters here and in
Jewish organizations as

In an attempt to stem

intermarriage, the com-
munity recently opened a
social club in the
synagogue, called "Mac-
cabi." It has a dis-
cotheque where mem-
bers meet weekly and or-
u social activities
ganizes
such as bridge games and
lessons, gymnastics, a
yoga class, karate, judo
and tennis, lectures, con-
certs and art exhibits.
The third is the Liberal
community, founded in
1970, which currently has
400 members. It was the
first Liberal Jewish com-
munity in Switzerland. An-
other has since been formed
in Zurich. The Geneva Lib-
eral group have their own
religious services, con-
ducted by Rabbi Francois
Garai, a Sunday school for
Hebrew and religious
studies and many social ac-
tivities, including camps for
the youth.
The smallest community
is the Orthodox (Machzikey
Hadat). It was established
20 years ago by Hungarian
Jews for whom the existing
Geneva communities were
not sufficiently observant.
Headed by Rabbi Abraham
Schlesinger, the community
consists of 50 families who
maintain a Talmud Torah
and plan to open a
Yiddish-Hebrew day school
shortly.
Geneva had a community
of English-speaking Jews
comprised of people who
worked for international
organizations headquar-
tered here or employed by
American firms with
Geneva branches. But that
community closed down last
year after most foreigners
left and the remaining
members joined the other
communities.
Geneva Jews have one

kosher restaurant, the

well. What has been de-
scribed as the "good life on
the lake" has been
endangered. ORT is consid-
ering the transfer of its
Geneva office to London.
There are about 500 Is-
raelis living in Geneva.
Some work for interna-
tional organizations, others
for banks and there are stu-
dents.
