Negev Airfields Show Profits
and Problems in Construction

NEW YORK — A recent
article from the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency dealing
with Jewish emigration
from Cuba in the early
1960s stated that Premier
Fidel Castro broke diploma-
tic relations with Israel
after the Six-Day War in
1967. Actually, he broke re-
lations with Israel in Sep-
tember 1973 during a meet-
ing of non-aligned nations
in Algeria.

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
two American corporations
building the military air-
fields in the Negev will
share a substantial profit.
But they are also having
their share of trouble with
the huge project that will
replace the air bases in
Sinai which Israel will have
to give up in 1982.
The money picture is
bright. The Negev Airbase
Construction Co. (NAC) of
New York, which is build-
ing the airfield at Ouvda
and the Airbase Construc-
tion Co. (ABC), building the
Ramon airfield, will realize
earnings of $55 million,
about six percent on their
investment, according to
economic analysts here.
They will share the profits
on a 50-50 basis.

THE GREAT GANT SALE,

Labor Gains
in Union Vote

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
Labor Party scored a sub-
stantial gain in last week's
elections held by the Feder,
ation of Civil Servants
while Likud and its reli-
gious bloc coalition partners
suffered a loss. Labor gar-
nered 61.6. percent of the
trade union's vote, up from
52,2 percent in the last elec-
tions.
Likud dropped from 18.9
to 13.9 percent and the reli-
gious parties from 13.2 to
11.6 percent. The Indepen-
dent Liberal Party also fell
from 7.9 to 2.8 percent.
The 'Shai faction scored
almost two percent, a gain,.
but the Democratic Move-
ment received less than one
percent of the vote, beloW
the minimum required for
representation in the
union's bodies.
Only about 50 percent of
the members eligible to vote
cast ballots. •

Moreover, it is now be-
lieved that the project will
cost $90 million less than
the estimated $1.04 billion
budget approved by the U.S.
Congress. The balance will
be at Israel's disposal to
help pay for the re-
deployment of its forces
after they leave Sinai. That
operation alone is expected
to cost more than $3.5 bil-
lion.
Meanwhile, NAC has
encountered problems
with imported laborers,
mainly from Portugal,

who have been flown
back to their countries
and with its own field
managers, several of

whom have been dis-
missed, according to a
report in Maariv.
The top man, Warren
Patingale, will return to the
U.S. in a few days, Maariv
said, because he was found
unfit for the job. Ir-
regularities were repor-
tedly found in hiring labor
teams on the sites.
Waddie Davis, head of the
manpower department and
Howard Marsh, head of
planning and material in-
spection, were also fired,
Maariv said.

Lay Community to Assist
Vaad in•Kashrut Matters

Editor, The Jewish News:
The Merkaz is being reor-
ganized to assist the Vaad
Harabonim in its services to
the community in matters
of kashrut.
Due , to the increasing
complexity of food process-
ing and the continuous pro-
liferation of new products,
the task of kashrut supervi-
sion has become considera-
bly more sophisticated and
detailed. As a result, the
Merkaz has assisted the
Vaad in retaining the serv-
ices of Rabbi Beryl Broyde.
Rabbi Broyde has exten-
sive knowledge of the many
phases of kashrut supervi-
sion including chemical
additives, government
regulations, food plant
manufacturing techniques,
in addition to a rigorous

training in Halakha. He
supervises the products and
procedures being used by
our bakeries, caterers and
other food service estab.-:
lishments. His respor,
sibilities include keeping
abreast of the many new
consumer items that receive
Hechsharim as well as those
which have the Hechshar
changed or removed.
In order to serve the
kosher consumer's needs
and interests, the Merkaz
will assist the Vaad in its
expanded programs and
will publish a kashrut
newsletter to keep the
community properly in-
formed. -'

Bar Mitzva Not a Graduation

Editor, The Jewish News:
I was distressed to notice
in The Jewish News last
week the lack of names of
graduates in the various
synagogues and temple
high schools.
The largest and most
prestigious synagogue in
the Detroit area only
graduated 12 seniors. What
a disgrace! It seems that the
largest class was only 46 at
Temple Israel.
sending
are
We
Jewishly-ignorant young
people off to college. No
wonder a large percentage
of the membership in var-
ious cults is Jewish. These
young people are unaware
of who they are or where
they came from.
I believe the root of the
problem is that we are
Bar Mitzva orientated.
The official educational
school of our community

is geared to Bar Mitzva.
What is offered after the
age of 13? Why do parents
tell their children that if

Attack on WB
Mayors Scored

Editor, The Jewish News:
The Committee for a New
Jewish Agenda together
with others in the American
Jewish community views
with dismay the attempted
assassination of three West
Bank Palestinian mayors
reportedly at the hands of
extremist Jewish elements
among settlers in the West
Bank.
At a point in history when
there is an ever increasing
need for both Israelis and
Palestinians to recognize
each other's reality, this in-
cident serves only to
exacerbate the already exp-
losive situation. In our
judgment, this action will
only further isolate Israel
from the good will of the
worId.,community.

Dr. Edward Pintzuk

they will only be Bar
Mitzva they can discon-
tinue their Jewish educa-
tion the day after?
The first priority of the
Detroit Jewish community
should be offering programs
to our teenagers so they can
combat all the other forces
they will encounter on the
college campuses.
We must concentrate on
intrafaith work instead of
interfaith. We cannot allow
the Bar Mitzvarama party
to be the celebration of the
end of Jewish education.
