FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1988

The Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion Board of Governors has
approved a Project Renewal
partnership for Detroit with
the Neot Shttzar neighbor-
hood of Yavneh, Israel.
Through the Allied Jewish
Campaign, the community's
second Project Renewal
linkage will seek to raise
$2,250,000. The remainder of
previously raised Project
Renewal Gifts — a total of
$750,000 — has been ear-
marked for Yavneh. Lawrence
Jackier is Federation's Project
Renewal chairman.
Noet Shazar is expected to
grow by 900 new families in
the next few years, placing a
significant burden on Yavneh
to provide appropriate school-
ing and social programs.
With this Project Renewal
commitment, Detroit joins
eight other major com-
munities which have taken
on a second neighborhood.
The plan for Yavneh is a
comprehensive program of
capital and social projects.

These projects include ex-
pansion of the teaching
system and adaptation of
facilities and equipment for
this system; and raising the
level of all community
services.

Capital projects will include
a community center, day care
center, social club and a
sports hall. In addition, a
number of social projects are
contemplated.
Federation has completed
its $5.6 million commitment
to Ramla with the creation of
an endowment fund with
$500,000 in previously raised .
project Renewal gifts.
The interest earned will
provide close to $50,000 per
year to maintain this com-
munity's investment in
Ramla's social programs and
facilities.

On April 18, all Detroiters
in Israel are invited to an
open house by the mayor of
Ramla, to celebrate Israel's
40th anniversary.

OPPORTUNITY

New York — Owen Z.
Perlman of Detroit, United
Jewish Appeal recruitment
chairman for this region, is
rallying the community to
register for UJA's Sixth Na-
tional Young Leadership Con-
ference to be held March
13-15 in Washington, D.C.
"At our last conference two
years ago, Detroit sent over
100 young Jewish American
leaders to Washington for
three days of dynamic pro-
gramming and provocative
speakers," Perlman said. "In
1988 we hope to double those
numbers by having communi-
ty members call friends and
relatives to come out and
register."
This year's participants will
hear Israel's Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir and Minister
of Defense Yitzhak Rabin, as
well as Natan Scharansky,
the freed Soviet Jewish dissi-
dent, and leaders of the Ad-
ministration and the Con-
gress, including Senators Ed-
ward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.)
and Howard Metzenbaum (D-
Ohio). Participants will also
attend a gala celebration in
honor of Israel's 40th An-
niversary, which falls on
April 21st, with Dr. Ruth
Westheimer, Holocaust sur-
vivor and fighter for Israel's
independence, and performers

Theodore Bikel, Rita Moreno,
and Inga Swenson.

mation, call Ken Mintzer at

Anti-Zionist
Changes Tine

Geneva (JTA) — Is it
glasnost or perestroika? Can
a leopard change its spots?
Whatever, Samuil Zivs, for
years the most vociferous
anti-Zionist Jew in Soviet of-
ficialdom, is ardently cour-
ting Jews and has visibly
softened, if not gone soft, on
Israel.
Until it was dissolved
recently, Zivs headed the
Anti-Zionist Committee of
the Soviet Public, an official
organization that relentlessly
attacked Israel, Soviet Jews
seeking exit visas and those
active in their behalf.
Now Zivs is talking about
bringing prayer books and
kosher food to the USSR,
organizing an exhibit of
Judaica there and cultural ex-
changes with Jewish com-
munities in the West.
