TEL AVIV — Alice
Shalevi, a mother of six
children ages 14-28, was not
1 . satisfied with the religious
educational system in Is-
* rael. She is today the head of
a special school for religious

girls.
Prof. Shalevi was born in
Germany and edubated in
I - and. She came to Israel
F. , 949 as an educator.
When her daughter
finished primary school,
Prof. Shalevi looked for a
•- school for her that would
combine the conservative
religious education system
with secular studies. She
founded the Pelech school, a
religious professional
school for girls, headed by
▪ teachers Shalom and Pnina
Rosenblith. In this school
. religious and secular
' studies were taught, and
the school was therefore
. boycotted by the religious
establishment.

her home and family of
eight.
The Pelech Institute
teaches girls about history,
art, music and philosophy.
In three years they have to
finish a program called
"Eshet Hayil" (the ideal
woman) which comprises
studies of home and sur-
roundings, intimate rela-
tions and relations between
parents and children:
"One has to find a synth-
esis between what one
wishes and what one has,"
Prof. Shalevi explains. A
program called "The Society
in Israel" comprises sub-
jects which other schools
teach as "Citizenship." The
girls are active in social
work, clubs for youth and
tutoring in order to gain the
feeling that the individual
participates in social life
and is educated for democ-
•racy.
Pupils take active roles in
their school, making deci-
sions, participating in pKo-
grams and projects. The
students' "General Assem-
bly" meets once a month
and every pupil can propose
any matter.
The approach in the
school to the pupils is
personal. A few years ago
some pupils wished to
continue their studies at
the Technion in Haifa. As
the standards of Techn-
ion are high, the Pelech
Institute carried out a
special teaching program
for these pupils. All of the
girls passed Technion's
entrance exam.
Prof. Shalevi also re-
formed

religious and has a broad system for pupils of her
education. She is very school. She insists that all

attitude when they
heard, for example, that
one girl in the Pelech
school wrote her mat-
riculation essay on
"Christian symbols in the
works of Graham
Greene," Prof. Shalevi
remarked with a smile.
"But religious per-
sonalities with a modern
view like Prof. Urbach in
Jerusalem and others
started to send their
daughters to this special
school."
Shalom and Pnina
Rosenblith invested in their
school all their indemnity
money which they received
from Germany. They
worked voluntarily in a va-
cated building in the former
no-man's-land between Old
and New Jerusalem. After
the Six-Day War in 1967
they were given the build-
ing by the Ministry for Reli-
gious Affairs.
Six years ago the couple
decided to close the building
because of financial prob-
lems. They appealed to sev-
eral institutions to help
them. Prof. Shalevi de-
clared her readiness to take
over management of the
Pelech school. She ap-
pointed; a kibutz member,
David Fuhr, as chairman of
the institution, which was
reformed completely.
Pelech school adopted
new education plans and
programs. A new teaching
system was introduced. The
plans were approved by the
director general of the
Ministry for Education.

YAHUD — A four-year-
old Israeli boy was recently
able to obtain vital spe-
cialized medical care in
England through a joint ef-
fort of Israeli and London
branches of Bank Leumi
Le-Israel.
The boy, who was born
with a defective digestive
and intestinal tract, was the
recipient of a special ac-
count from Bank Leumi for
donations to finance the cost
of the trip and treatment in
England.
