Integration has helped. The
population has quadrupled.
Land has been rezoned to
allow the more affluent to
build homes in and around
already existing neighbor-
hoods. One neighborhood is
home to 600 army officers and
their families. Signs of con-
struction and reconstruction
are everywhere.
"What made our revolution
successful is that we had no
other choice," Brouss says.
"We had the highest motiva-
tion to do it."
Like Shitrit, Brouss is a
member of the Herut compo-
nent of Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir's Likud Bloc.
But, he says, "Yavneh is
above politics. We are one of

Construction is underway in the Neot Shazar neighborhood to bring
middle class Israelis to Yavneh.

squeezed into a few rooms on
two floors of an apartment
house. At rest time the
children lie on mats which
take up the entire floorspace.
There is little space to move.
The hot, humid air hangs
over the rooms.
Many of Neot Shazar's
dwellings were erected hasti-
ly during the mass immigra-
tion years of the 1950s. Apart-
ments are small with little
room for privacy. Outside of
Lydia Ayash's building stands
an empty, sun-baked lot with
a couple of benches. This is
the children's play area.
"If you go around city hall

you see parks, you see green.
Here, nothing," complains
Simcha Tsabari, a
neighborhood worker. "We
need to put in grass, benches
and trees."
Yavneh's Project Renewal
plans address these shortcom-
ings and the success of Project
Renewal in other places has
encouraged Tsabari and her
neighbors.
"I tell residents that there
is hope and that things are
starting to happen," she says.
"They're waiting like a
hungry person who waits for
bread to eat." ■

Netanya Offers Beauty,
Comfort For All Ages

Eth the Temple in ruins,
- , raison d'etre of Judaism
vanished. So Rabbi Yochanan
moved to Yavneh, established
a yeshivah and bet din (law
court) and changed the course
of Jewish history. Priests and
animal sacrifice were out;
rabbis, study and prayer were
in.
Before the Romans sup-
pressed the Bar Kochba revolt
in 135 C.E. and sent Jews
fleeing out of the country,
Rabbi Yochanan, his suc-
cessor Rabbi Gamliel and
their followers got down to
some serious Jewish business
in Yavneh. The Hebrew calen-
dar was fixed, the Torah was
canonized and translated in-
to Greek, and the rules gover-
ning the writing of the
Hebrew language were set.
The Yavneh of today has
done much to help itself out
of the doldrums, but residents
will quickly point to the
places renewal has not yet
reached. One of them is Neot
Shazar's day care center,

Jerusalem — The promise
of relaxation and comfort at a
moderate price lures tens of
thousands of Israelis and
Europeans each summer to
Netanya, a holiday resort on
the Mediterranean.
But Americans, for some
reason, persist in missing the
golden beaches and shady,
cliff-top promenades that lend
Netanya its character.
Lying on the Mediterra-
nean just a half-hour north of
Tel Aviv, Netanya is one of
Israel's larger cities, with a
population just under
100,000.
Yet the resort neither
bustles like Tel Aviv, nor
resembles the quiet dor-
mitory of towns of nearby
Kfar Sava and Petach Tikva.
Netanya instead offers
wholesome, unpretentious en-
joyment and facilities for all
ages.
For older visitors, or those
preferring a more sedate
vacation, Netanya presents a

the beach, with exotic flower-
ing bushes, comfortable ben-
ches and balmy breezes even
on the hottest days.
The town boasts a large
population of British and
American pensioners and
some of the country's most ac-
tive immigrant associations.

Sun and sea enthusiasts
prosper in Netanya, as break-
waters keep the rougher
waves away from the shore,
allowing swimmers to enjoy
large areas of calm sea and
clean, white-gold sands.
Surfers, meanwhile, can
still mount the waves beyond
the stone barriers.
The town's main square, full
of Mediterranean-style even-
ing strollers, is studded with
restaurants, ethnic eateries,
fish and seafood, Eastern
European cooking and fast
food ranging from ham-
burgers and pizzas, to felafel
and humus.
Netanya offers several
kosher restaurants.
