Arafat Claims Regular Contact
Between the PLO and Vatican

C. D

ROME (JTA) — The Vat-
ican is in regular contact
with the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization, accord-
ing to PLO chief Yasir
Arafat. "There is a constant
exchange of correspondence
between ourselves and re-
sponsible people at the Vat-
ican," Arafat said according
to an interview published
July 23 in the Milan daily, Il
Giorno.
He was referring to the
nt violence in the Mid-
-, East toward which the
attitude of the Holy See is
"without doubt a positive
one," Arafat said. He lauded

the Vatican because "it has criticized Israel for its

Lord said, "Let him give
charity, sharing his bread
with the poor, giving money

speak in puffed-up spirit.
Whoever has these qualities
will inherit the future life."

while the Senate will not

year, it expects Romania to

Principals at Jewish Schools
Subject of AAJE-WZO Study

By GUY BERNARD

(Copyright 1981, JTA, Inc.)

The typical head of a
Jewish school in the United
States or Canada is a 39-
year-old, American-born
married male with an
exemplary academic back-
ground, a mastery of writ-
ten and spoken Hebrew and
— given his age — a surpris-
ingly high accumulation of
experience in teaching,
supervision and adminis-
tration.
This composite profile
was drawn from a com-
prehensive, bi-national
study of 560 heads of Jewish
schools (principals, super-
visors and education direc-
tors) that was undertaken
as a joint project by the
American Association for
Jewish Education (AAJE)
and the department of edu-
cation and culture of the
World Zionist Organiza-
tion.
