AWARDED CERTIFICATE
BY GIA IN GRADING
& EVALUATION

Jackier explained. The city's
revitalization was begun
without Project Renewal
seven years ago by the city's
"Young Turk" leadership.
"They developed an urban
plan. The social planning is
all in place."
Jackier, who visited Yavne
in November, paints a bright
picture of the city. The cession
of some municipal property to
the Israel Defense Forces
resulted in the creation of a
residential neighborhood
populated by army officers
which "helped upgrade the
overall city." Yavne has three
major industrial employers
and a "very effective" ORT
vocational school.
The
Neot
Shazar
neighborhood has a "campus
plan [for community services]
similar to the Maple-Drake
Jewish Community Center,"
Jackier said. The plan calls
for a senior citizen center, a
tipat chalav (mother and
child) center and a kids club,
he explained. "All they need
is the money and the help."
Jackier estimated that, if
approved, Detroit's commit-
ment to Neot Shazar would
range between $2 million and
$3.5 million over a five-year
period. The precise figure will
depend on the scope of the
project, according to Martin
Kraar, Federation executive
vice president, who just
returned from a visit to
Israel, including Yavne. "The
scope will depend on the
board [of governors' deci-
sion]."
Last summer, Jackier told
The Jewish News that Detroit
had pledged to raise $1
million for the "Renewed Vi-
sion Campaign" to complete
some Project Renewal com-
mitments left unfinished by
other communities. What
steps has the community
taken to make good on that
pledge? "That issue has not
surfaced yet," Kraar said.
Detroit has not severed its
ties with Ramle. "It is evolv-
ing from a primarily financial
relationship to a people-to-
people relationship," Jackier
said. Several local groups
visited the city in the past few
months.
Recently, most of Detroit's
Project Renewal funds were
raised during these Israel
missions. Jackier said there
has been "no great push" for
Project Renewal by the Allied
Jewish Campaign. Recent
missions raised some
$200,000 for the new and as-
yet undesignated Project
Renewal fund.
An additional $500,000, the
unused remainder of funds
raised for Ramle, was
transferred to Federation's
$82 million endowment fund.

Revenues generated by that
half-million dollars will be us-
ed to maintain buildings
erected in Ramle by Detroit.
Jackier estimated the
revenues will be between
$35,000 and $50,000 annual-
ly, "an adequate sum to do the
job."
Jackier has recently receiv-
ed several phone calls from
Yavne's leadership. "They're
waiting," he said.
Yavne's ancient Jewish
leaders, working pragmatical-
ly in the shadows of the
destroyed Jerusalem, shifted
Judaism's emphasis from
priest to rabbi, from animal
sacrifice to prayer. They
created a portable religion
which allowed Judaism to
survive in the Diaspora.
Detroit may soon be in the
position of repaying Yavne for
its foresight in the form of a
Project Renewal partnership.

West Germany
Searches Soul

Bonn (JTA) — Spurred by a
spate of anti-Semitic in-
cidents and the recent revela-
tions of the alleged Nazi pasts
of some public figures, West
Germany struggled to deal
with the Nazi period.
The soul-searching also
was triggered by the initia-
tion of legal proceedings
against 4,000 suspected Nazi
war criminals whose dossiers
were obtained from the
recently opened United Na-
tions war crimes files in New
York. The files contain infor-
mation on about 40,000 war
crimes suspects of all na-
tionalities, and were compil-
ed by the Allied War Crimes
Commission and placed in
UN custody in 1947.
Legal authorities in West
Germany said that while
criminal proceedings against
Nazi suspects have been in-
itiated, it is doubtful that
more than a few will be
brought to trial because of
their advanced age or state of
health. The same obstacles
stand in the way of finding
witnesses to testify against
them.
Nevertheless, the fact that
Germans are being made to
face a past they have long
tried to bury could have a
salutary effect. Dieter
Schroeder, of the Munich-
based daily Sueddeutsche
Zeitung, wrote last week that
1988 has opened a new
"remembrance drama" in
this country. "The temptation
to suppress will always be
with us, but we should resist
it," Schroeder said.
