Economic conference in NY

Israeli crisis may force
change from philanthropy
to investment for U.S.
Jewry.

New York (JTA) — Israel's
deepening economic crisis and how
best to help solve it will be the major
topic at a special conference to be held
in New York next week with promi-
nent Israeli and American Jewish
leaders.
The conference, sponsored by the
Israel Diaspora Institute, a private
think-tank based at Tel Aviv Univer-
sity, will focus on the impact of the

ard Squadron, former president of the
American Jewish Congress and leader
of the newly-formed business Group
for Middle East Peace and Develop-
ment, which seeks to promote eco-
nomic development in the West Bank .
The Israeli Cabinet agreed
unanimously Sunday, after a stormy
session, to go ahead with preparations
for a second economic package deal.
The first, which includes a wage-price
freeze, is due to expire this month. Fi-
nance Minister Yitzhak Modai came
under fire from most of his fellow

cuss whether these relations are in the
process of changing from philanthropy
to greater business investment in Is-
rael on the part of American Jews.
The conference next Thursday
will be attended by Gad Yaacobi, Is-
rael's Minister of Economic Planning;
General (Res.) Meir Amite, former chief

Bonn (JTA) — Green Party offi-

fore in its short history has the Green
Party had such favorable attention fo-
cused by the media on its view that a
Palestinian state should be created on
the West Bank, and what it terms "Is-
rael crimes" in Lebanon should be de-
nounced by the West German govern-
ment.
The German media coverage of
the delegation concentrated heavily
on the differences of opinion between
Israel and the Greens on the Palesti-

or strongly downplayed other dif-
