A tribute: the gift that brings joy
before it's ever received.

When you honor someone close to you with a JARC tribute - for a Bar Mitzvah,
birthday, anniversary, memorial, or special occasion — you'll be bringing them joy.
But before they ever open their tribute, your gift will be bringing joy to people
you've never met. People at the Jewish Association for Retarded Citizens.
You'll be helping them realize their dream of living a life of quality, pride, and
dignity. And helping , keep hope alive for the hundreds of others waiting for a home.
Send a JARC tribute today. Because only a very special gift brings joy before it's
ever received.

Most political pundits felt the
crisis would indeed be resolved
with Likud remaining in the
government and Shas prob-
ably returning to it.
Their optimism derived
from the fact that Likud, torn
by internal disputes between
its Herut and Liberal Party
wings, does not want to risk
new elections and the possibil-
ity that Peres would govern
with a narrow majority.
On the other hand, many
Likud people see the Shas
issue as a test of their party's
credibility as the patron of a
small but potentially vital
client. Having "lost" the NRP
to Labor and with the Agudat
Israel "sitting on the fence,"
Likud is anxious to preserve
its close links with an Or-
thodox faction, observers said.

creased economic aid from the
United States; the talks with
Lebanon on Israeli with-
drawal; and negotiations with
Histadrut for the elimination
or reduction of government
price subsidies to attack • the
mounting deficit.
These are cardinal matters
of state which must be ad-
dressed by both major parties
in unison, he said. Labor Party
Secretary General Uzi Baram
called the crisis "a storm in a
teacup." He said Likud was
making a great show of its un-
swerving support for Shas but
predicted that eventually the
dispute between Shas and the
NRP would be resolved.
Representatives of Labor
and Likud were working be-
hind the scenes Wednesday on
new compromise proposals.

Some 11,000 Israeli college students serve as volunteers for Project
Tutorial (PERACH).

Jerusalem — Perach means
flower in Hebrew but PERACH is
also an acronym for a project
celebrating its tenth year of ac-
tivity: Project Tutorial.
According to statistics compiled
by the Ministry of Culture and
Education, there are in Israel
today some 150,000 under-
privileged children in need of spe-
cial attention and help in their
schoolwork. "These children,"
says Giora Zur, co-ordinator of the
PERACH project at Tel Aviv Uni-
versity, "are far from being a
homogeneous group. The one
similarity which they share is
that they come from culturally
deprived homes and have difficul-
ties in school either because they
are unable to concentrate in class
or because they just can't cope
with the study program for lack of
parental aict."
The tutorial project, according
to Giora Zur, is very much like the
Big Brother Program in America.
It was initiated ten years ago at

the Weizmann Institute of Sci-
ence in Rehovot where Dr. Roni
Atar, then studying for his Ph.D.
degree, and his wife 'adopted' two
children who needed help with
their lessons. Realizing that there
were many more children in the
same situation in the Rehovot
area, Dr. Atar recruited friends at
the Weizmann Institute.
Within a short time, dozens of
children were enjoying the serv-
ices of 'private tutors' and their
schoolwork began to. improve.
Dr. Atar and his friends ap-
proached the Ministry of Educa-
tion with a tutoring program
which although based on volun-
tary manpower required some
moral and financial support. This
resulted in the establishment of
Project Tutorial.
Today, 11,000 students in Is-
rael's colleges and universities
are active in Project Tutorial.
Each school in which PERACH
operates is served by a co=
ordinator who acts as educational
