Over the past eight years
the town has undergone a
total renaissance as
thousands of housing units
have been renovated and
community facilities built.
At the first of `the three
centers — built over two
years at a cost of $500,000 to
provide facilities for 300
persons — Russell and the
Amigour officials visited
with Kiryat Yam's
youngsters. A group of
teenagers sang and danced
in the main hall, while
younger children partici-

play activities in other
rooms.

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
leader of the Conservative
Judaism movement be-
lieves because American
Jews live in an open, demo-
cratic society, many of them
are not persuaded of the
worthwhileness of their
Jewishness, primarily be-
cause the religious dimen-
sion is missing from their
lives.
In an address to the na-
tional board of directors of
the United Synagogue of
America, Rabbi Benjamin
Kreitman, executive vice
president of the United
Synagogue, asserted: The
choice is no longer to be a
Jew or to embrace another
faith, or to join another
community.
"The choice today is be-
tween being a Jew or merg-
ing with the great mass of
indifferent Americans, in-
different to religion and in-
different to ethnic identity
or commitment."

Peace Obligation

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
The newspaper Haaretz re-
cently reviewed the seven
agreements with Egypt
which are part of the
Israeli-Egyptian peace
treaty.
It said Egypt has been
very careful to comply with
the agreements on air
transportation, communi-
cations, tourism, continen-
tal communications, and oil
supply. It has not complied
in the areas of trade and cul-
tural relations.
Haaretz said these latter
areas are the ones which
show how warm and
friendly relations are be-
tween two countries. It said
Egypt `has been holding
back in these two areas.
