In contrast to the evap-
oration of the track and field
athletes from Israel, Ameri-
can basketball players are
finding a haven of refuge in
Israel. Not only Jewish bas-
ketball players, but since
non-Jewish players (one to a
team) are permitted to per-
form with the National
League in the Holy Land,
-- we see a steady influx of our
boys settling in Israel.
As a matter of fact, I
checked out one of the
players and I was told by his
college coach here that
when he attended school he
was listed as a Catholic. Not
only is this boy now a citizen
of Israel, but he has already
completed his army service

presume, for the Israel Na-

who might be interested in

The general's thinking
was that if he and some of
his cohorts back home could
induce some seven or eight
quality athletes to settle in
Israel, the country would be
in a position to do much bet-
ter in the 1980 Olympics.
A member of the Olympic
Executive Board, Harold
Zimman of Lynn, Mass.,
tried to convince Doron to
desist. Zimman felt that the
experiment was doomed to
failure.

P. S. Nearly everyone can dial direct to most telephones in Canada,
the Caribbean, Alaska, Hawaii and parts of Mexico—just as you dial direct'
to cities inside the continental U.S.

Survey: Judais m Stronger
Among Youth in France

NEW YORK (ZINS) —
According to a poll pub-
lished by the JTA in Feb-
ruary 1977, 27 percent of
the Jews in France were
married to a spouse of a
different religion. The per-
centage for those over 50
was 34 percent; for those
under 35, 22 percent. This
would indicate a
strengthening of Judaism
among the young. It would
appear that marriages be-
fore World War II or in the
`50s were more frequently
mixed.
About one-half of French
Jews are middle level
executives, salaried em-
ployees or wage workers.
According to the poll, 57
percent of the Jewish com-
munity (taking into account
the retired and the unem-
ployed) have modest in-
comes.
The number of children in
Jewish day schools in
France is about 5,000. This
does not include children
who attend a twice a week
talmud Torah or a cheder.
In Paris and its suburbs
there are 5,000 such chil-
dren.
The Consistoire Cen-
tral Israelite de France is
the official representa-
tive of French Judaism. It
is responsible for the
training and appoint-
ment of rabbis, religious
instruction and the
supervision of kashrut.
In Paris there are 15,000
paying members of
synagogues. The figure
for France as a whole is
25,000 to 28,000.
The Fonds Social Juif Un-
ifie (FSJU) the United
Jewish Philanthropic Fund,
has been developing from a
body for the division and
distribution of funds to edu-

cational, cultural, philan-
thropic and religious in-
stitutions and groups into
the principal Jewish com-
munal structure in France,
an inclusive framework un-
iting religious and non-
religious Jews. In 1976 the
FSJU and the Jewish
Agency agreed to cooperate
in the field of Jewish educa-
tion, information about Is-
rael and aliya.
The political influence of
is smaller
French
than that of some other
Diaspora communities —
British Jewry, for examplt
and certainly of American
Jewry. The number of Jews
in the British Parliament is
significantly greater than
that of Jews in the French
National Assembly.

What we truly and ear-
nestly aspire to be, that in
some sense we are. The
mere aspiration, by chang-
ing the frame of the mind,
for the moment realizes it-
self.
