New Israeli Farm Animal Is Half-Goat, Half-Ibex

Most of the yaezim (plural
of yaez) on Kibutz Lahav
look like goats, with long .

coat of the ibex, with the go-
at's floppy ears.
"We see it as a new
meat source," says Dr.
Dan Ratner, director of
the Animal Research In-
stitute here on Kibutz
Lahav in the Negev Des-
ert. "The yaez tastes
neither like the goat nor
the ibex, both of which
have strong, distinctive
flavors. It is a neutral,
low fat, delicate meat that
is highly versatile. In
some ways it might be
compared with veal."
Until now, the herd has
been too small to exploit
commercially, numbering
230 head, with about 200
kids on the way. Eventu-
ally, Ratner expects to ex-
port yaez meat to Europe
and the United States.
The Israeli project is not
the first attempt to cross the
ibex with the goat. There
were experiments in Swit-
zerland at the turn of the
century, but those animals
have since died out. An-
other experiment was con-
ducted in the Soviet Union
about 30 years ago. Its find-
ings were never published.
Dr. Ratner received his
first three yaezim in 1972
from the experimental zoo
in Tel Aviv. The zoo wanted
to find out if there was a
commercial future in breed-
ing them as farm animals.
Now, 11 years later, with
the help of hundreds of
thousands of dollars in in-
ternational research
grants, funds from the
kibutz itself and Israel
Ministry of Agriculture
loans, the yaez project is fi-
nally ready to go commer-
cial.

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Florence Dolowitz, a foun-
der and past president of
Women's American ORT,
died of a heart attack
Saturday at her home in
Brooklyn. She was 94 years
old.
Mrs. Dolowitz came to the
United States from
Lithuania at the age of nine.
She settled with relatives in
Shenandoah, Pa., moving to
New York City to attend
school. She graduated from
Hunter College in 1910. She
later taught mathematics
in the city schools.
While working with the
Davison Society, a group
dedicated to helping work-
ing people prepare for col-
lege entrance examina-
tions, Mrs. Dolowitz met
members of the World ORT
Union, which provided
equipment and training to
help less developed areas of
Europe.
Convinced that women
should play a role in the
organization, she called a
meeting in 1927 that led to

the establishment of
Women's American
ORT, an auxiliary to the
international.
Mrs. Dolowitz served as
president of the auxiliary
from 1932 to 1937. She con-
tinued to serve on the
executive committee and as
honorary president until
her death. She also helped
to establish a physics lab-
oratory, named after her
late husband. Alexander, in
Ramat Gan, Israel.
