The

B

community supports ORT,
Zionist Organization of
America and Hadassah voca-
tional schools in Israel. These
schools should provide train-
ing courses to help Jews ac-
quire the skills and
knowledge of up-to-date
building methods.
2) There should be a
vigorous campaign by the
Allied Jewish Campaign to
raise the needed funds by the
sale of Israel housing develop-
ment bonds.
3) Our American sup-
porters of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund should strongly
urge the fund to provide suf-
ficient land for housing and
the necessary network or
roads, electric and telephone
lines, water supply and
sewerage systems.
4) American
Jewish
builders are desperately need-
ed to build development pro-
jects, each of 1,000 to 2,000
housing units. With modern
design, proper equipment and
building on a large enough
scale, skilled Jewish labor can
be paid good wages and still
the cost of homes could be cut
in half or more.
5) These new homes, unlike
what is generally now
available in Israel, should
come complete with central
heat, lighting fixtures, kit-
chen cabinets, closets and
cooking
stoves
and
refrigerators. The cost will be
a great deal less if the builder
provides all that rather than
leaving it to the buyer.
6) The new community
development shouldinclude
affordable rental housing.
Are we going to help pro-
vide employment for Jews to
build homes for Jews? Are we
going to help a massive
number of Jewish refugees
start a new life in Israel? Or,
are we going to let this
historic opportunity to ensure
the future of our people and
our national homeland to
pass us by?

I would like to thank you,
not just for the beautiful ar-
ticle ("Lunch And Learn"
Dec. 8), but for your fine
coverage of much of the
Jewish, educational and
other events of importance of
which you make the com-
munity aware.
I feel compelled to give
public recognition to Young
Israel of Southfield and Rab-
bi Elimelech Goldberg. The
synagogue leadership always
has been supportive of shar-

ing the wealth of Rabbi
Goldberg's wisdom with the
rest of the Jewish communi-
ty. The class the rabbi leads
at the law offices of Schlussel,
Lifton, is sponsored, in part,
by his shul.

Host A Party
For Soviet Jews

The Sholem Aleichem In-
stitute recently hosted a din-
ner party and shower in
honor of a newly arrived
Soviet Jewish family, Max
and Era Galperin and their
daughter and son, Alla
Begun and Toly.
The Galperins were the
recipients of goods for the new
households. The program in-
cluded songs in Yiddish and
English. Alla Begun sang a
Russian lullabye and played
the piano. It was an unforget-
table evening.
We recommend this format
to all organizations that will
be adopting one of the
families arriving from the
Soviet Union.

NEWS I

Genetic Disease
Center Is Open

Jerusalem (JTA) — A mo-
lecular biology unit, the first
comprehensive center in
Israel for the diagnosis and
treatment of genetically-
related disorders, has open-
ed at Hadassah Hospital on
Mount Scopus.
The unit utilizes state-of-
the-art technology to isolate
DNA and match it to known
models of genetic disorders
for diagnosis. Genetic dis-
orders are responsible for a
range of problems, such as
schizophrenia, hemophilia,
cystic fibrosis, anemia and
birth defects, among many
others.

Shul Arsonist
Is Resentenced

New York (JTA) — Over a
year has passed since Louis
Franceschi set fire to
Brooklyn synagogue Sharai
Torah on the eve of Yom
Kippur, destroying six
Torahs and shocking the
New York Jewish communi-
ty. Franceschi will now go to
jail, but not for the original
charges.
The 1 7-year-old was
sentenced last week to one-
to-three years in jail for
violating probation condi-
tions.
