the welfare of the Russian
transmigrants in its care,"
said Hassenfeld. "It will help
us achieve one of our primary
objectives: to give these Soviet
emigres the knowledge and
experience of their Judaism
that they were entirely lack-
ing while they were in the
Soviet Union.
"We are also emphasizing
the centrality of Israel and
providing the campers with an
Israeli camp experience," she
said.
The camp is currently
situated in a grassy corner of
a public park in Ladispoli, not
far from the beach.
Organizers, however, say a
new site may have to be found.
Last week, for example, local
police visited the camp and
warned that the erection of a
playhouse-type sukkah, made
out of cloth, violated park
regulations against erecting
structures there.
Led by the Israeli counselors
along with volunteers from
the Soviet transmigrants

.

themselves, the children begin
the day by raising the flag and
singing Hatikvah. Then they
participate in a wide range of
play, sports and arts and crafts
activities.
There is a daily Hebrew
class, as well as instruction on
Jewish and Israel-related
topics and trips to a nearby
lake for swimming. "Condi-
tions are too dangerous to
take them swimming in the
sea," said one counselor.
On Tuesdays, camp
counselors said, fewer
teenagers show up than other
days. Tuesday is what the
transmigrants have come to
call "slave market" day, when
local Italians come to a certain
spot and pick out young peo-
ple to work in their homes, or
in their fields or quarries.
Such work is illegal and pay
is minimal, but young people
jump at the opportunity to
supplement the six dollars a
day per person stipend given
out by the JDC. ❑

Special to The Jewish News

A

prominent executive
of the Jewish Federa-
tion Council of
Greater Los Angeles was kill-
ed around midnight Monday
by two holdup men as he was
withdrawing some cash from
an automatic teller machine
at a West Los Angeles
location.
Jerry Weber, 49, the foun-
ding executive director of the
federation's Council on
Jewish Life, died of multiple
gunshot wounds at the UCLA
hospital early Tuesday morn-
ing. His wife, Sally, who was
waiting in the couple's car
during the robbery, was not
injured.
Los Angeles homicide
detectives described the
suspects as two black males,
who fled in their car.
The Council on Jewish Life,
which Weber directed since
its inception in 1979, serves
as the federation's outreach
arm to both non-traditional
and established segments of
the Jewish 'community. The
council's six commissions
deal with Israeli immigrants,
intermarried couples and
Jews with disabilities, as well
as with synagogue relations,
the arts, and spiritual
concerns.
Rabbi Harold Schulweis of
Valley Beth Shalom, a Con-
