Israel Colleges
Get Revson Grant

NEW YORK , — Two
grants totaling $1,500,000
to promote higher education
and scientific research in Is-
rael have been awarded to
the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem and the Weiz-
mann Institute of Science of
Rehovot by the Charles H.
Revson Foundation of New
Announcement of the
award, which will be shared
equally by the Israeli in-
stitutions, was made in a
joint statement issued by
Ambassador Avraham
Harman, president of the
Hebrew University, and
Prof. Michael Sela,
president of the Weizmann
Institute of Science.
Under terms of the
four-year grant, funds al-
located to the Hebrew
University will be used to
create 12 new Charles H.
Revson Fellowships for
postdoctoral lecturers
and to provide tenured
faculty appointments for
a small number of out-
standing academicians.
Funds designated for the
Weizmann Institute will be
used to establish seven new
career development chairs
to provide follow-through
support and research un-
derwriting for a cadre of
select young scientists at
the most formative and crit-
ical juncture in their
careers, upon completion of
their doctoral and postdoc-
toral studies.

East. -
He reports that the aver-
age income of an Ashkenazi
Jew is twice that of the av-
erage income of an Oriental
Jew. In the high schools, the
proportion between
Ashkenazim and Sephar-
dim is 3/1 in favor of the
In the universities there
are five times as many
Ashkenazim as Sephardim.
The percentage of Sephar-
dim in the political and
economic elite of the coun-
try is only four percent
while their number in the
general population has al-
ready risen to 55 percent.
The sociologist foresees
the growth of a mass move-
ment of the Oriental Jewish
community which will
exploit every conceivable
means (including demonst-
rations) to proclaim and de-
fend their interests.

Public Attitude
May Hurt Israel

lowing a U.S. tour, former
Israeli Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin expressed con-
cern over the preoccupation
of Americans with domestic
affairs and the lace of in-
terest and impatience with
Middle East affairs.
He said this change in at-
titude will hurt Israel's in-
