was one of the recommenda-
tions of Federation's Commis-
sion on Identity and
Affiliation.
The U of M Theater Project
was approved for $16,800.
Hill Street Players will pre-
sent two major theatrical pro-
ductions each academic year.
One will be a play of Jewish
content, while the other will
treat an important social,
ethical or religious issue. Part
of the project is "TalkTo Us,"
an interactive theater pro-
gram in which a small group
acts out a scene involving
anissue affecting the lives of
students. At a critical point in
the drama, the group freezes
in action while a facilitator
engages the audience in a

discussion of what they have
seen.

Another new project given
high priority by the Jewish
Welfare Federation's Commis-
sion on Identity and Affilia-
tion is the Detroit High
School in Israel program,
which will enable 15 local
10th and 11th grade Jewish
students to spend one
semester in Israel. The
students will take part in a
program taught in English
and accredited by Michigan
high schools. First year fun-
ding of $20,000 was approved.
Suggested for February-
June 1989, the first year's
program will take place in
Jerusalem at the Israel
Goldstein Youth Village.

E. Germans Seek Jewish
Favor, Court Palestinians

Bonn (JTA) — East Ger-
many appears to be courting
Jews and Palestinians at the
same time. It is seeking the
good will of Jews on the sup-
position that this will help
foster better trade relations
with the United States.
At the same time, it con-
tinues to provide military
assistance and training for
the Palestine Liberation
Organization, and shows no
signs of reducing its support
of the PLO, according to West
German diplomats and
observers in Bonn.
PLO chief Yassir Arafat
visited East Berlin last week
and met for an hour with
Communist Party boss Erich
Honecker. The PLO chairman
came to East Berlin to attend
an international conference
on disarmament, sponsored
by the East German
government.
Far from scaling down its
military support, East Ger-
many is allowing more "PLO
fighters" to train at military
facilities in the Tueringen
district, according to
diplomats who asked to re-
main anonymous. Some of the
facilities are close to the site
of the Buchenwald concentra-
tion camp.
According to the diplomats,
Arafat discussed military
cooperation between the PLO
and East Germany with
several prominent Germans
in East Berlin.
The training program for
PLO personnel includes
courses at the prestigious
East German war college for
high-ranking officers.
Meanwhile, Honecker and
other East German politi-
cians have had talks with
Jewish leaders recently about

paying out some $40 million
to Jewish survivors of the
Holocaust. Unlike West Ger-
many, the Communist regime
in East Germany has refused
even to consider restitution
until recently.
Honecker and others in-
dicated they expected in
return that Jewish organiza-
tions in the United States
would lobby on behalf of East
Germany's trade interests. In
particular, the East Germans
covet most-favored-nation
trade status in the United
States.
A high-ranking Jewish
delegation is expectd to meet
with Honecker in East Berlin
next month.

Police Pursue
Killing Of
Moshav Farmer

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israeli
police, investiging the murder
of Eliahu Cohen, a farmer
from Moshav Shekef, showed
that he was stabbed seven
times in his back and then
struck with a steel pipe. His
mutilated body was found in
the moshav's vineyards.
Following the killing last
week, an overnight curfew
was clamped on eight Arab
villages in the Lachish region
of Israel while police searched
for the murderer of Cohen, 33.
Cohen went to work un-
armed. Authorities said rela-
tions between Shekef and the
Arab villagers had been good
until the Palestinian uprising
began in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip more than six
months ago. Since then,
moshav property has been fre-
quently damaged by the
villagers.
