Young Distributor Is Atypical Hollywood Success Story

By HERBERT LUFT

(Copyright 1982, JTA, Inc.)

HOLLYWOOD — Tamar
E. Glaser, at 23, is one of the
youngest motion picture
distributors on the West
Coast.
A native of Beverly Hills
and great-granddaughter of
the legendery Max Factor,
the remarkable young
woman has more than 10
years experience in the in-
dustry, having completed
her first film, shot on loca-
tion in Century City, Los
Angeles, at the age of 12.
Now, with her theatrical
syndication and cable dis-
tribution company, Glaser
Productions, she has
emerged as a successful
Hollywood executive.

Deeply steeped in the tra-
dition of show business, she
became a student intern at
the William Morris agency
while still in the ninth
grade, followed by assugn-
ments as a "gofer", on the
film "Gable and Lombard"
and as an extra in the re-
make of "King Kong."
Being somewhat of a
pioneer in the cable in-
dustry, Ms. Glaser be-
came • programming di-
rector for Radio Airlift,
the student station for
Beverly Hills High
School. While only in the
11th grade, she was in
charge of all on-air pro-
gramming and hosted
her own show for the sta-
tion, which was broad-

Still a youngster, she be-
came a delegate to both the
Congressional Seminar in
Washington, D.C. and the
Youth and Government
Program in Sacramento,
Cal. Under the direction of
Dr. William Jones, founder
of the USA Film Festival,
she majored in film writing,
theory and criticism,
started to produce 16mm
films, and completed her
first screenplay. One.of the
highlights of her college
career was her participation

HAIFA — A 550-yard-
long promenade along the
Mediterranean is the
newest beauty spot in
Haifa.
The promenade leads to
the point where Mount
Carmel descends to the sea,
thus providing a physical
link between the city's two
main attractions.
The promenade fronts one
of the city's oldest and most
picturesque quarters — Bat
Galim, which means
"daughter of the sea." The
area leads down to the sea in
various irregularly formed
stone steps and features
palm-shaded gardens and
areas for fishing.

When a group of Israeli soldiers wrote Prime Minister Begin
recently in order to convey their heartfelt emotions about their
presence and actions in Lebanon, he responded to the effect that
their only concern was to obey orders. Is this blind obedience
what Mr. Begin demands from us as American Jews? Is this the
only way to express our solidarity with Israel?
Nahum Goldman, former President of the World Zionist
Organization and of the World Jewish Congress, offered the
following advice to supporters of Israel: "The real friends of Israel,
both Jews and non-Jews should understand that there is no
better way of helping Israel than by criticizing its policies in a
friendly way and endeavoring by argument and pressure to have
it change them." Accordingly, it is inappropriate to dismiss the
agruments of the peace forces in Israel and the American Jewish
community without due consideration of their contents.
Sentiments which preclude questioning certain of the
policies of the present government in Israel and the real tragedies
of the invasion of Lebanon only assist in perpetuating the belief
that American Jews are incapable of distinguishing between Is-
rael the country and particular government policies. Thus,
the Jewish community and its leaders and media have a respon-
sibility to question the political premises for the invasion of Leba-
non and its consequences, not out of a spirit of partisanship, but
out of a desire to find a way to peace and justice in the Middle East
that guarantees Israel's long-term survival and a solution to the
Palestinian quesiton.

Only by questioning the rightness or wrongness of the Israeli
government's premises and directions for its policy in Lebanon
can we share in the effort to protect the Israel we love.

The Haifa Develop-
ment Association is also
planning to link the
promenade with Mount
Carmel by cable car and
to construct a scenic
series of stairs from the
Carmelite monastery on
the promontory down to
the sea, leading past such
historical sights as a 17th
Century windmill and
Elijah's cave, for ages a
revered site for Jews,
Christians and Moslems.
The cable car will not be
the first in Haifa, often de-
scribed as Israel's most
"European" city. For many
years Mount Carmel and
the port area have been
linked by an underground
cable railway, the "Car-
melit," that whisks
passengers up and down in
minutes. The new cable car
will have the advantage of
taking in the magnificent
panoramas of the sea, the
city and the hills of Galilee
that make Haifa so unique.

New Synagogue

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The biggest synagogue in
Israel was to be dedicated in
Jerusalem at a festive
ceremony to be attended by
President Yitzhak Navon,
Premier Menahem Begin
and the chief rabbis.
Guest of honor — health
permitting — will be
British Jewish philan-
thropist Sir Isaac Wolfson
whose $8 million donation
covered about half of the
cost of the massive edifice.
The synagogue is the
brainchild of Maurice Jaffe,
director of Hechal Shlomo
and head of the Council of
Synagogues in Israel.

Ms. Glaser plans to travel

American audiences with
the Chinese movie industry.
