THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

The Land of Israel Is Always Full of Surprises

By CARL ALPERT

HAIFA — The land of a
thousand and one surprises,
where the unexpected al-
ways happens, and nothing
can be taken for granted:
Another handful of tes-
timonies to the unique side
of life in Israel . . .
When Trees Mourned
— On the stormy day that

Yigal Allon was buried, two
tall cypress trees which he
had planted some years ago
in Jerusalem were uprooted
by the winds and fell to
earth.
What's Sauce for the
Goose — The first group of
Chinese tourists from
Taipei to enter Israel from
Egypt had one request to
make of their travel agent:
they wanted to be guaran-
- teed Chinese food for the
entire trip. And the first or-
ganized group of traditional
Jews to visit Egypt from Is-
rael had one request to
make of their travel agent:
they wanted to be guaran-
teed kosher food for the
entire trip. The latter was
achieved by bringing along
their own pots and pans.

The Law is the Law —
Tel Aviv Mayor Shlomo
Lahat took part in the pub-
lic festivities marking the
opening of a new snack bar
at a municipal swimming
pool, and then later signed
an order to close the place
down because it lacked an
operating license.
There's One Born
Every Minute — Complete
text of an ad in the Hebrew
Press not long ago: "Hurry!
Last chance to send 10 Is-
rael Pounds — P.O. Box
9118, Tel Aviv."
Did Hillel and Rabbi
Akiba Speak Mamalos-
hen? — An exhibition of
Yiddish books held here not
long ago was billed as "the
first Yiddish Book Fair in
2,000 Years.

Parents for Torah for All Children

MICHIGAN CHAPTER

Parents for Torah for All Children — is a group of concerned
PTACH
members of the Greater Detroit Jewish Community dedicated to the task of
providing a comprehensive program for Jewish children with learning dis-
abilities.
L.D. — Learning Disability - is the general term used to describe a variety of
learning and perceptual problems in otherwise intelligent, normal children
which may hinder or prevent perception, understanding, or expression in
learning.

It is estimated that MORE THAN ONE OUT OF EVERY EIGHT CHILDREN
struggle with a learning problem.

PTACH, Michigan Chapter, has already had notable success here in our
own community:
The establishment of the only full time, secular and Hebrew L.D. pro-
-
gram in our community;
The engagement of two highly qualified teachers, certified in the L.F.
specialty;
Trained staff to test and evaluate each child and develop a curriculum
tailored to his needs;
An active Professional Advisory Board, comprised of members in the
fields of Medicine, Psychology, Education, Social Work, and Psychiatry
which has assumed the leadership role in providing staffing, supervi-
sion, and consultation to our program.

The public is invited to join us for a

They Won't Forget —
The central theme of the
Jewish Diaspora Museum
in Tel Aviv is Zachor — Re-
member. A recent visitor
not only took the lesson to
heart; he also took the
Yahrzeit (Memorial)
candlestick from the Yom
Kippur Room. The niche
now remains empty as a
reminder to the museum
guards: Remember — keep
an eye on everyone!
All a Matter of Taste —
When the 6,000 sailors of
the U.S. aircraft carrier -
Kennedy were due to hit
Haifa, the city's prostitutes
and dope peddlers, among
others, prepared for a rush-
ing business. They were bit-
terly disappointed. The fleet
came to Haifa after four
days in Alexandria where
the men had a surfeit of
both. Instead, they jammed
the cultural facilities and
some of them stood for hours
in the Haifa Museum to
watch an art film on the
painter Eduard Munk.
Instruments as Well as
Performers — The village
of Kfar Daniel produces
high quality pianos, most of
which are exported. Biggest
customer is Germany.

Waste and Extrava-
gance — A reader wrote to
Haaretz bemoaning the fact
that at a time when the cost
of bread, butter, milk, eggs
and other staples is rising
steeply from week to week it
was most unfitting to pro-
duce the mammoth cake in
honor of Isaac Stern's birth-
day, as pictured in the
paper. Reply: The cake was
a big piece of tin painted to
look like cream
A matter of Timing —
David Kramer complained
in his letter to the editor
that television's weekly
sports review should be re-
moved from Thursday eve-

Jewish Senator
Sworn in Early

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Warren Rudman, one of two
Jewish Republican Sena-
tors elected in November,
was sworn in last week as
New Hampshire's junior
U.S. Senator after Sen.
John Durkin, a Democrat,
resigned early.
Rudman's early induction
into the Senate will prob-
ably put him 10 or 12 places
higher on the Senate senior-
ity list. He defeated Durkin
with 52 percent of the vote
in November.
Rudman refused cam-
paign contributions from
out-of-state political action
committees to stress his
commitment to give New
Hampshire "a Senator we
can call our own," according
to "First Monday," the Re-
publican National Commit-
tee's publication.
The other new Jewish
Senator elected in Novem-
ber is Arlen Specter of
Pennsylvania. There are
four incumbent Jewish
Senators, one Republican
and three Democrats. Spec-
ter is the first Jewish Sena-
tor to be elected from
Pennsylvania.

ning to any other night in
the week. That's the time
when all good Jewish
housewives are engaged in
preparing their Shabat me-
al-s, and every time there's
something especially excit-
ing on the screen his wife
runs the blender or the
mixer, not only jamming
the announcer's voice, but
also fouling up the picture.
Post Graduate Study —
A senior police officer, with
many years of experience,
attended a cinema per-
formance in Tel Aviv of a
Hollywood crime thriller,
and was seen makir
entries in his notebook. II.
explained that Israel's crim-
inals frequently got ideas
from these films, and it was
his task to be one step ahead
of them.
Public Health Officials
Opens His Mouth — Dr.
M. Kalman, of the Ministry
of Health, reveals that Is-
rael has only 2,400 dentists,
more than half of whom
work only part time. A third
of them are women. There
are vacancies for 5,000 more
he said, between gritted
teeth.
Haifa May Go Under-
ground — Lack of cemetery
space has compelled some
officials here to study the
possibility of burying the
dead in underground
catacombs,, such as those
built by Jews at Beth
Shearim in talmudic times
