York, including a number of
elderly Jews, are receiving
Jewish organizational - di-
rected care in their homes in
a project funded by the Di-
vision of Family and Adult
Services of the city's Human
Resources Administration
(HRA-FAS), the city's um-
brella agency for welfare
programs, according to
Menahem Shayovich,

president of the Metropoli-
tan New York Coordinating
Council on Jewish Poverty.
Shayovich described as
"medically frail" those el-
derly persons whose physi-
cal problems require some
kind of outside help so they
can maintain themselves in
their homes. Some are in
wheelchairs or unable to
leave their beds. Most are
shut-ins who cannot per-
form without help such out-
side tasks as shopping and
keeping appointments.
Many are handicapped and
have limited mobility, he
said.

JCCSC is a spin-off corpora-
tion, separately incorpo-
rated and tax-exempt, with
the Coordinating Council
acting as the parent agency.
Rabbi David Cohen and
Rabbi Shimon Zweig serve
the Coordinating Council
and the JCCSC as executive
director and associate direc-
tor, respectively.
Once they are inter-
viewed by a sponsoring
agency, the prospective
attendants are sent to the
HRA for "Rapid Assess-
ment," which is "basic test-
ing of their level of skill."
Cohen said that if they com-
plete those tests suc-
cessfully, they get a home
attendant certificate.
Eligibility of Medicaid re-
cipients for home attendant
is determined by the HRA
department of General So-
cial Services (GSS) and then
they are referred to FAS,
which assigns the patient to
the nearest home attendant
agency available.

JERUSALEM — Some
critics object to artificial
rainmaking in Israel, say-
ing it tampers with nature.
Prof. Avaham Gagin of He-
brew University, who
understands their point of
view, says that "to get back
to natural rainfall, we
would have to go back
thousands of years," before
such phenomena as defolia-
tion from overgrazing and
the felling of trees influ-
enced the annual rainfall.
Induced rainfall seems to
be reversing the depressing
situation of water supplies
in Israel, and for that mat-
ter, in countries which bor-
der Israel. When rainmak-
ing activities were started,
the attempts were a well-
kept secret, for no one knew
how the cloud seeding
would affect the weather of
the neighboring Arab
states.
But when the Univer-
sity of Chicagapublished
data from Arab countries
adjacent to Israel, a 20
percent increase in rain-
fall was seen in Jordan,
Lebanon and Syria.
Israel's rainmaking tech-
niques are benefiting coun-
tries outside the Middle
East. Recently a delegation
of leading meterologists and
water conservationists from
South Africa came to
Jerusalem to learn from the
experts. In addition, Israeli
meteorologists have been
dispatched to Peru where an
Israeli company, Agridev,
has been employed to de-
velop a vast arid area of that
Latin American country.

Influx of Cars

Israel is the only country
in the world where the
number of motor vehicles
has doubled in the last 10
years. Israel is second only
to Hong Kong in number of
vehicles per mile of road.

bility is less than an ant.
