TEL AVIV — Moshav Di
Zahav does not look like a
frontier settlement. Its 16
families run a hotel, a res-
taurant, a club for divers
and a club for excursions
into the desert.
Diving has become the
main source of income for
the village. Each season
more than 500 divers come
from all over the world. It is
an ideal place for diving
with a crystal-clear sea and
a marvellous panorama.

tlement has acquired a
yacht for tourists who come
from Egypt to Eilat. The
settlers from Di Zahav have
also proved that one can
grow fruits and vegetables
in the salty soil. There is no
winter here and there are
crops twice a year.
The Moshav is based on
the principle of a collec-
tive. The machines and
the installations are
common. The members of
the Moshav live in their
own houses. New mem-
bers get apartments of
three or four rooms ac-
cording to the size of the
family, and wages in
proportion to their work.
Member. men and women
earn equal wages. Women
work only four hours per
day, men eight. Education
for children is free.
On the sea shore 40
houses stand ready. Build-
ing progresses quickly, as
each day new settlers ar-
rive. Not all are accepted.
First one has to live in a
temporary apartment,
know the place and the
people. A new settler is ac-
cepted by decision of the
General Assembly of the
collective.
The settlement has no

debts. It has made great pro-
fits. These are not 'distrib-
uted but invested. The trou-
ble is the uncertainty of the
political future of the set-
tlement. If a peace with
Egypt is reached, the set-
tlement may return to
Egypt.
But the settlers of Di
Zahav do not waste time
on discussing_ their fu-
ture. They work, and
build a blossoming oasis
on the edge of the desert.
Bachelors cannot join the,
collective. There are some
young men who work in the
restaurant, in the divers'
club, but they are not mem-
bers of the Moshay. For
them the place is a paradise.
Many young girls and
women from all over the
world visit the place. The
bachelors live in trailers
with all facilities. They are
very diligent and do all
types of odd jobs.
Sometimes there are dif-
ferences of opinion. The
political situation of the
place and its unknown fu-
ture occupy the minds of the
settlers. But they do not
wish to think that Di Zahav
would return to the Egyp-
tians.
One of the interesting
personalities in the villages
is Dr. Victor Zadikov. He
was born in Tel Aviv, went
in 1967 to South Africa and
worked there as a surgeon.
Once he visited his son,
who served in the Army
in- Di Zahay. He "fell in
love" with the place and
decided to settle here. He
opened a clinic and gives
medical aid to all settlers

. - and Bedouins_of the - vic-
inity.
Even Bedouin

women, who are suspici-
ous of doctors, gladly go
to him.
The Bedouins of the area
are providing services for
the tourists. They arrange
folklore evenings, sporting
events and camel rides.

They opened coffee shops,
restaurants and souvenir
shops with special Bedouin
art and robes.
In Di Zahav, two worlds
and cultures meet and try
for a new phase of integra-
tion and cooperation.
