and buffing wheels.
"There's a different sound
with each mouthpiece. When
I'm working on a mouthpiece,
I'll usually work for a bit,
then try it to see how it feels,
sounds, whether it seems to
have any extraneous vibra-
tions — things like that —
till I get it right. It's just a
lot of experimentation."
Metal mouthpieces of the
type used on brass instru-
ments cannot be added. In
fact, nothing may be added to
a shofar, according to Jewish
law, although the instrument
may be decorated with scal-.
lops, designs, symbols, or
messages worked into its sur-
face.
Lindy's shofars, which now
number about half a dozen
("it takes about a week to
finish one"), are unadorned,
and he plans to keep most of
them that way. He does in-
tend to do a bit of carving on
some in the future, though,
he says, after he's conducted
more research on the nature
and history of the ways in
which they have been carved
in the past.
Lindy looks forward to con-
tinuing his newfound hobby,
and plans are even afoot to
market some of the shofars

he's already made. According
to Lindy, as far as he can
tell, there are no other shofar
craftsmen in the area.
Other plans include "adopt-
ing" one or more of the Afri-
can antelope at the Detroit
Zoo — a plan in which an
animal at the zoo may be
cared for through contribu-
tions from groups or indi-
viduals throughout the year
"I think that would be appro4\
priate," says the shofar
craftsman, an ardent animal
lover and self-described
"heavy environmentalist." •
Talking about what moti-
vates his work, Lindy says he
sees it as "very important
mitzvah, and I'm as in-
terested in doing my daily
and yearly mitzvah as any-
body else. I've never had any
formal art training, but I've
always been a little "crafty."
It's the old 'everybody does
their part' thing. I'm part of a
group. It needs to be done.
It's something I can do."
During High Holidays this
year, Lindy will be sounding
one of the shofars at that
previously-needy Troy con-
gregation.
Chances are, his father will
be proud. ❑

Jewish Agency Clashes
With Settlements

Jerusalem (JTA) — One of
the two heads of the Jewish
Agency Settlement Depart-
ment, Nissim Zvilli of the
Labor Alignment, announced
last week that the Agency
would soon publish a map of
Israel. It will clearly show the
"Green Line" that marks the
old border between Israel pro-
per and the Administered Thr-
ritories.
Speaking on the Voice of
Israel, Zvilli stressed that the
map would be printed with
Agency funds to correct a
situation of the past few
years in which the Green Line
"was erased from all maps
and geography books." Zvilli
said the new map should be
printed so that the generation
born after 1967 would be
aware of the "real situation."
Zvilli's statement immed-
iately triggered a sharp reac-
tion from the settlers. Otniel
Schneller, secretary of the
Jewish Settlements in the ter-
ritories, said that rather than
printing a map with green
lines, the Settlement Depart-
ment should start working on
"green pieces of land" in the
settlements.
The exchange between
Zvilli and Schneller was the
latest in a series between the
political right and the left
regarding the settlement
policy after the rotation of the
Israeli prime ministership
takes place next month.
Peres launched an attack

on the Likud's intentions to
speed up the settlement in
the territories after the rota-
tion. Peres spoke at the 15th
convention of the farmers
federation. He directly ap-
proached Matityahu Droble
of the Likud, the co-head of
the Settlement Department,
telling him that the align-
ment would not permit the
establishment of 20 new set-
tlements. Peres said first on
the agenda would be the
strengthening of existing set-
tlements, especially in the
Negev, Golan and Galilee.

ZOA To Fight
U.S. Support

Baltimore (JTA) — The
administration's recent deci-
sion to funnel American aid
to the West Bank through
Jordan shows that President
Reagan's 1982 peace plan for
the Middle East "is very
much alive," the outgoing
president of the Zionist
Organization of America
warned in a message to dele-
gates for the ZOA's 85th na-
tional convention.
Aleck Resnick said the
ZOA would campaign "vigor-
ously" against the "flawed
concepts" behind the Reagan
Plan, which he said "virtu-
ally assigns Judaea and
Samaria to Jordan."
