minimal fear of physical safe-
ty as a community, but a total
loss of direction for its own
spirituality as a Jewish com-
munity. That struck me as
the most interesting and pro-
bably the most poignant
paradox of all.
"The Jewish community of
Morocco, despite all of its fear
of physical depression has a
vitality of Jewish life that I
envy," he said. "It's
phenomenal. We spoke to
kids in schools, and they all
indicated that they were mov-.
ing out of the country. I ask-
ed them in Hebrew, in first
and second grades, and they
all said they were destined for
some other place."
Schlussel said the com-
parison proved to be "both
frightening and enlightening
at the same time."

Schussel was sent by the
UJA to evaluate the use of
Allied Jewish Campaign
funds as they are divided bet-
ween the United Israel Ap-
peal and the JDC overseas
component. "I was singular-
ly impresseed with the JDC
and how it parceled out its
resources and got an effective
return for the investment
that the American Jewish
community makes.
"I think that the people in
this country can feel comfor-
table knowing that the dollar
is being allocated to the JDC
as evident by my trip to
Morocco as well as Larry's.
We really should be proud of
what the JDC is doing.
They're keeping Jewish life
going, and that's one of the
most important factors of
all." ❑

Jerusalem — At the request
of several hospitals in Israel
(Alyn, Beit Levenstein and
Tel Hashomer), Boys Town
Jerusalem was asked to
charge its students with the
development of a measuring
chair for muscular dystrophy
Sufferers of muscular
atrophy are confined to
wheelchairs which must con-
form to the patient's physical
dimensions. Wheelchairs
must be changed periodically,
about every 10 months, as the
patient's body changes in
response to the progress of the
disease and treatment.
The correct dimensions of
the wheelchair are critical to
the patient's well-being.
Presently, attaining the
measurements is done by a
physiotherapist using a tape
measure and/or a ruler.
Since graduates of Boys
Town Jerusalem's College of
Applied Engineering must
present original projects, in
addition to passing their writ-
ten examinations, in order to
earn an Associate Engineer
degree from Israel's Ministry
of Education, two students
from the mechanical
engineering faculty under-
took this challenge.
The goal of the project was
to construct a prototype
wheelchair equipped with
measuring devices of various
kinds which could be adjusted
easily, providing accurate
The wheelchair designed
has 16 such measuring

devices giving information on
the width, length and breadth
of the seat and back, the
angle of the back, height of
the head rest and arm rests.
For the technician there is lit-
tle left to do but to fill in the
order form for the new
The two Boys Town -
students who developed the
measuring chair are Av-
shalom Radi and Uri Dehari.

East Berlin Gets
Its Own Rabbi

New York (jTA) — For the
first time in almost a quarter
century, the small Jewish
community in East Berlin
will have a rabbi of its own,
the result of a four-year effort
spearheaded by the American
Jewish Committee, it was an-
nounced last week.
Rabbi Isaac Neuman, a
65-year-old Auschwitz
survivor, from Champaign,
Illinois, will leave for East
Germany in early September
to assume his post and
prepare for the High Holy
Days. As his first rabbinical
action, he will attend the In-
ternational Ecumenical Con-
ference in East Berlin as the
official representative of the
less than 600 remaining East
German Jews.
The Reform rabbi, who is a
member of the U.S. Holocaust
Memorial Council, will
become the only permanent
American rabbi ministering
in all of the East Bloc nations.
