Israeli Economy Causing a Political Storm

TEL AVIV (JTA) — An
agreement in principle has
been reached that will allow
Israeli museums to display
some of the priceless an-
tiquities belonging to the
remnants of the once
flourishing Jewish commu-
nity in Egypt, it was dis-
closed here by Philip
Klutznick, president of the
World Jewish Congress.
Klutznick, who arrived in
Israel last week after a visit
to Egypt, said he had raised
the matter with President
Anwar Sadat after viewing
some of the treasures which
he found in a sad state of
ieglect.

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A
major political crisis is
hanging fire pending Pre-
mier Menahem Begin's re-
covery from his latest ill-
ness. The looming crisis
stems from a growing lack
of confidence in the gov-
ernment's ability to manage
Israel's rapidly deteriorat-
ing economy.
Pressure is mounting
within the Liberal Party
wing of Likud for the resig-
nations of its four Cabinet
ministers — though not for
withdrawal from the coali-
tion — while the opposition
Labor Alignment is calling
for dissolution of the Knes-
set and new elections.
The Knesset Presidium
urged the Labor Party and
Sheli factions to hold off on
the no-confidence motions
they submitted Friday until
Begin has recovered and is
back at work. Meanwhile,
former Foreign Minister
Yigal Allon and Labor
Party Whip Moshe Shahal
have taken the initiative to
call for new elections. Labor
Party chairman Shimon
Peres said that while he was

not sure this is the right
moment to dissolve the
Knesset, he is convinced the
present government "has to
go."
The price of gasoline
soared by 40 percent last
week. At the current ex-
change rate this means
that a gallon of 94 octane
gasoline now costs the Is-
raeli motorist about
$2.60.
Economic circles said that
the gas price rise would in-
evitably mean a rise in
water and electric rates, al-
though for the moment the
government has -not im-
posed these increases. In-
evitably there will also be a
ripple effect of price rises
throughout the economy be-
cause fuel, whether for
production or for transport,
is a component in almost
every commodity and serv-
ice.

Energy Ministry sources
said the first rise would be
followed by a second wave of
price hikes before the end of
the year in order to keep ab-
reast of world price rises
and with the steady fall of
the pound which reached an
all-time low of IL 26 — $1
this week.
The gasoline rise was one
of two measures decided by
the Cabinet. The other was
a 60 percent rise in the cost
of imported frozen meat.
The Cabinet was torn
by the government's in-
tention to eliminate all
subsidies. Finance Minis-
ter Simha Ehrlich intro-
duced figures that
showed that without the

Flood Clean-Up

NEW YORK (JTA — A
rescue mission of Memphis
Jewish teenagers and
adults was organized on one
day's notice to travel 250
miles through the night to
Jackson, Miss., last April to
help in the massive clean-
up of the effects of the mas-
sive flood that struck the
community, according to
Robert A. Silver, assistant
executive director of the
Memphis Jewish Commu-
nity Center.

Writing in the "JIATB Cir-
cle," the bi-monthly publi-
cation of the National
Jewish Welfare Board,
Silver reported that, armed
with a truck loaded with
disinfectant, boots and a
variety of clean-up mate-
rials, the Memphis caravan
of volunteers drove to
Jackson. He noted that most
of the city's 220 Jewish
families live in northeast
Jackson, the section hardest
hit by the flood.
Silver said Jackson's lone
synagogue, Beth Israel,
perched on fairly high
ground, remained dry. It be-
came the headquarters of
the volunteer Mitzvah
Corps which had been or-
ganized by the Memphis
Jewish Federation, Jewish
community center and
Temple Israel brotherhood.

subsidy the price of
bread would rise by 160
percent — from IL 2.50
for a regular loaf to IL
6.50.
Similarly, removal of the
subsidy on cooking oil
would mean a 160 percent
price rise, and elimination
of the milk subsidy would
confront consumers with a
121 percent rise from IL
5.10 a liter to IL 11.30.
"What will a family with

The Treasury had also
prepared an elaborate sys-

additional child allowances
and welfare payments, to
ensure that the poorer sec-
tors would not be too hard
hit.
But Begin, and later the
Cabinet majority, too, felt
that despite the compensa-
tion arrangements the
measures would be too vio-
lent and too sudden for the
economy to bear.

In this 31st anniversary year of Israel's renewed independence, what
more appropriate way to mark Tisha B'Av than by affirming our solidarity
with the people of Israel by redeeming and developing the land of Israel.

Tisha B'Av is the occasion for Jews everywhere to recall the destruction
of the Holy Temple, that traumatic event which ushered in two millenia of
Jewish dispersion and statelessness: It is also a time to give thanks for
the miracle of Israel reborn in our lifetime and the restoration of Jewish
sovereignty in our historic homeland.

MORE GENEROUS THIS TISHA b'AV

Over the years it has become a proud tradition for synagogues through-
out the United States to conduct appeals or other fund raising functions
during their Tisha B'Av observances for the Jewish National Fund. This
year, more than ever, as Israel faces a critical moment of challenge and
opportunity, the members of all congregations will want to join JNF in
bringing new life and color to the remaining wastelands of the Jewish
State.

WE KNOW WE CAN COUNT ON THE LEADERSHIP IN ENLISTING
THEIR CONGREGATIONS' SUPPORT AND PARTICIPATION BY
CONDUCTING THE APPEAL IN THEIR SYNAGOGUE ON SHABBAT
CHAZON AND FOR BEFORE KINOTH ON WEDNESDAY EVENING,
AUGUST 1st, AND ON THURSDAY MORNING AUGUST 2nd.
