A U.S. Presidential poll in Israel

BY ELANA EIZAK KUPERSTEIN
Special to The Jewish News

When Israelis were asked
whether they prefer Reagan or
Mondale, their choice was much
less ambiguous than the result of
their own election. In a survey
conducted for the daily Haaretz,
33.7 percent of the Israelis felt
that Reagan would be a better
president as far as Israel's inter-
ests are concerned, while only
27.2 percent chose Mondale.

Everybody, especially Likud
leaders, were waiting for
Menachem Begin to appear on TV
or radio on behalf of Likud. He
never did. His only official
endorsement was a donation of IS
25,000 in cash ($75) to the Likud
campaign. Photographers wait-
ing for him to appear at his voting
station, a school in Tel Aviv, were
also disappointed. Begin, who has
been away from the public for 10
months did not vote.
Begin's son, Dr. Binyamin Be-
gin, postponed his.sabbatical
leave until after the election. The
geologist and his family will be
spending the year in Boulder, at
the University of Colorado's
school of geology.

While election results showed
that Israel lacks a strong political
leader, Belz Chassidim and their
supporters abroad invested $12
million in a more spiritual kind of
leader — the Messiah. They re-
cently laid the cornerstone for the
largest synagogue in the world,
which the Messiah is expected to
visit on his way to the rebuilt
temple.
Five thousand Belz Chassidim
from abroad joined the corner-
laying ceremony in Jerusalem
which was led by the Belzer rebbe.
Even Reagan and Mondale sent
their greetings.

Another corner-laying cere-
mony, involving a $3 million in-
vestment, took place on the slopes
of Mt. Carmel in Haifa. An insti-
tute for research and publication

An Israel MK is in
the midst of a
national
housecleaning.

Rabbi Avraham Hecht of Brook-
lyn, president of the Rabbinical
Alliance of America, was the
guest of honor at the ceremony,
promising the support of his con-
, gregation to the new center.

A modern day hero was recently
honored with a birthday party
given by the President of Israel.
Unfortunately, the guest of honor
could not attend. Prisoner of Zion
Yosef Begun, who is imprisoned
in a Soviet labor camp for "anti-
Soviet activity," didn't even know
about his party.
President Herzog told the 100
guests that Begun's activities
were cultural and not political,
since his only crime was teaching
Hebrew and Jewish culture. The
"birthday party" was held at the
President's residence in
Jerusalem.

Israel and Jordan are finally
talking — not about peace, but
about mosquitoes. Low-level Is-
raeli and Jordanian officials are
discussing the mosquitos which

plague the port cities of Eilat and
Aqaba and other issues shared icy
the neighboring cities 'such as
water supply problems.
Although the talks have been
going on for a few months, no join'.
plan of action was decided on as of
yet. But just as in "real" peace
negotiations, even talking is a
sign of hope.

And more hope for Eilat is pre-
sented by the new rail line which
will link it to Tel Aviv and the rest
of the country. The project will
cost about $250 million and is ex-
pected to improve trade through.
the Eilat port and to help develop
the entire southern Arava region

Sarah Doron, the Israeli MK, is-
in the midst of major house clean-
ing — for the whole country. She
heads a special government task
force in charge of a 100-th4
nationwide clean-up project, in 1
cooperation with the police, loca;. -
governments, volunteer organ-
izations, and the army. Army )
bases, weapons, and even soldiers
will also undergo a careful over-
haul.

While today, Jewish wome
like Doron, hold political office,
during the Mishnaic period it wa.
quite uncommon for a woman to
be a scholar as was the case of
Bruria, wife of Rabbi Meir. Her
unusual life story is going to be
performed by a Jerusalem Drama
Workshop group at the Edin-
burgh Festival of Theatre and
Music.
Members of the group, all of ,1
whom are English speaking in:
migrants, perform both in
English and Hebrew and say they
feel honored to have been invited
to the prestigious Edinburgh fes-
tival.
