NEWS -

In the past Yisrael's hands be-
longed to Esau. Today they are
those of Yaakov. Daniel used to
earn a living robbing banks.
Now he is the proud father of
four. Avraham was once the
largest distributor of hashish in
northern Israel. Today he deals
only in Torah.
While
Baalei-Teshuva
are blossoming
Yeshivot
everywhere in Israel, Machane
Yisroel is a unique and very
different kind of venture within
the movement. It is a rehabilita-
tion program for ex-convicts
where classes in basic Jewish
beliefs are conducted and
Halacha is taught with special
emphasis placed on the mitzvot
(duties) between man and his
fellow man. The Yeshiva has
also initiated a number of
highly successful programs
which enable prison inmates to
visit and learn about the Holy
City while participating in
learning sessions at the Beit
Yisroel campus.
The head of the Yeshiva,
Rabbi • Aharon Feinhandler,
boasts of a success rate with the
ex-convicts exceeding 90 per-
cent. The warden of the prison
claims that "our rehabilitation
program is the best in the coun-
try. Once the former inmate
understands how unethical and
immoral his previous life was,
he usually doesn't return to
prison." And when asked why
his project has not received offi-
cial recognition he responds by
challenging government policy:
"The government realizes how
effective we are yet what they
don't understand is that the
clubs and recreation centers
they build in the development
towns invariably become drug-
dealing centers which in turn
keep the country's prisons well-
stocked."
Realizing that men cannot
live by religion alone, adminis-
trators have set aside afternoons
for teaching trades such as
metal-working and locksmithing
and the work they do learning
these profesions pays for their
room and board while studying
at the Yeshiva. Recent efforts to
combine work and study has
culminated in Kfar Gidon, an
agricultural settlement north of
Afula.
In spite of the fact that the
secretary of the regional council
of the Emek Valley is a member
of Kibbutz Mizra (one of the
largest producers of non-kosher
meat in Israel), Kfar Gidon was
recognized and invited to join
the council. Says Rabbi
Feinhandler, "during the meet-
ings with the kibbutzim we put
it to them plain and simple. We
said we want our students not
only to study about the 'Love of
Eretz Yisrael,' but to actually
till the soil and feel the beauty
of the land. I explained to them
how this was difficult to do from
the center of Jerusalem. We
dealt with them on a level they
could understand."
Machane Yisroel's religious
emphasis is Sephardic. As 90
percent of the students are Jews
from Arabic countries, every ef-
fort is made to cultivate

Sephardic customs and tradi-
tions, and as Rabbi Feinhandler
put it, "To make the students
feel that Torah is as Sephardic
as it is Ashkenazic." (The major-
ity of Torah commentary has
come from .Ashkenazi-Eastern
European origins). "The major-
ity of Sephardic Jews in Israel
come from religious homes," ex-
plains the ex-Chicago rabbi.
"They believe in Torah. They
know how beautiful the Shabbat
can be. They are believing
people who have difficulty
bringing Torah into their daily
lives. We help bring their hearts
and their minds together."

Rescue Ship
Data Sought

Los Angeles — The Simon
Wiesenthal Center is attempting
to identify persons who were
saved from the Holocaust
through the efforts of William
Perl, or who worked with Perl
organizing the illegal rescue
ship operation that became
known as Die Aktion.
Among the ships Perl guided
to safety were the Gepo, which
sailed in December 1938 from
Tulcea, Romania; the Katina,
which sailed in January 1939
from Balchik, Bulgaria; the As-
tir, which left from Varna, Bul-
garia in March-1939; the Leisel,
which departed Tulcea in May
1939; the Parita, which sailed
from Galatz, Romania in July
1939; the Noemi Julia, which
sailed in August 1939 from Con-
stanta, Romania; and the
Sakarya, which departed from
Sulina, Romania in February
1940. •
Anyone with information re-
garding these missions may con-
tact Rabbi Abraham Cooper at
the Simon Weisenthal Center,

Angeles, Calif. 90035.

Rabbi Warns
About Kashrut

New York — Rabbi Dr. H.
Zecharia Senter, of the Kaf-K
Kosher Supervision Service,
warned against relying on in-
gredients listings on product Ta-
bles in a lecture Nov. 10, "Kas-
hrut in Today's Marketplace" at
the Young Israel of West
Hempstead.
"Many of the ingredients in
today's foods are listed by their
technical names.
"Furthermore, some of the
common ingredient descriptions
found on product labels, such as
`emulsifier,' natural flavor' or
`artificial flavor' can legally be
used to describe a broad range
of ingredients, some of which
are kosher and some of which
are not. Without further infor-
mation on their source, not usu-
ally provided on the label, the
consumer cannot determine
whether the specific ones in any
given product are kosher or
not."
