The Detroit Soviet Jewry Committee

was the first of the argricul-
tural settlements estab-
lished by the turn-of-the-
century European Jewish
philanthropist Baron
Maurice (Moses) Hirsch.
Situated in Santa Fe
province, some 375 miles
from Buenos Aires, Moises-
ville is no longer the
entirely Jewish township it
was 20 or 30 years ago. But
there are still nearly 1,000
Jews (some 30 percent of the
present population). Most of
the Jewish families own
small cattle farms in the
area.
All the children attend
the Yahadut school and
many go on to the teachers'
seminar that functions in
the school building in the
afternoon. (The seminar,
founded in the 1950s by
local educator Yosef Drez-
nin, takes in students from
other Jewish communities,
too, who board in Moises-
ville during the school
term.)
The teachers, mostly
young women who live in
Moisesville and whose
husbands farm in the
area, are all fluent in He-
brew and some speak a
fine literary Yiddish, too.
Why do they choose to
stay in this small and re-
mote village? Says Chava
Gelbert-Rosenthal, long-
time teacher at the seminar
and mother of three, "There
is no better place to bring up
children." Her son and two
daughters love the outdoor
life. "Ariel is a gaucho in
spirit," Chava says of her
nine-year-old flaxen-haired
son Arye whose pride and
joy is his chestnut mare.
Many young people from
Moisesville moved to Israel
over the years, some of them
settling on kibutzim and
moshavim there. Many
others moved offto Cordoba,
Rosario or Buenos Aires, in
search of university educa-
tion and broader oppor-
tunities. Those who remain,
Chava stresses, do so "be-
cause we like the life."

If a single cell, under
appropriate conditions, be-
comes a man in the space of
a few years, there can surely
be no difficulty in under-
standing how, under appro-
priate conditions, a cell
may, in the course of untold
millions of years, give ori-
gin to the human race.
