FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 1990

Visitors to the Beit Govrin National Park walk through mazes of caves.

Belt Govrin Park
Dedicated In Israel

Beit Shemesh — A Jewish
National Fund park was
dedicated at Beit Govrin,
Israel, by Ronnie Milo,
minister for environmental
protection; David Nahmias,
director of JNF's Land
Development Authority, and
Mordechai Ben-Porat,
director-general of the Na-
tional Parks Authority.
JNF development of the
park transformed the Beit
Govrin caves, located in the
Adullam region, into a tourist
attraction. The park encom-
passes 1,250 acres,
throughout which JNF has
prpeared scenic trails connec-
ting some 60 caves dating
back to the seventh and
eighth centuries C.E. The
caves are classified as "bell
caves" because of their wide-
bellied inner expanses and
small overhead apertures.
Convenient paths and stair-

ways have been built to allow
close examination of the
sculptured cavities, and
signposts erected to explain
how the caves were excavated
and the purposes they served.
Centuries-old inscriptions
carved into the walls have
been translated as well. For
the convenience of visitors, a
large reception area and
parking lot also have been
prepared at the entrance to
the site.

Hitorically, the Beit Govrin
caves were quarried by local
Jewish and Christian in-
habitants, primarily to ex-
tract building materials.
They were used also as burial
chambers, water cisterns and
workshops for the extraction
of olive oil. Clusters of caves
eventually were connected in-
to huge underground mazes,
dozens of yards underground.

Berkley NFTY Member
Helps Educate Russians

New York (JTA) — It may
be a lot of responsibility to
place on young shoulders,
but a group of American
teen-agers affiliated with
Reform Judaism seem to be
enjoying their role as good-
will ambassadors for the
United States and Israel to
Jews in the Soviet Union.
Born and raised in
America, and having just
spent a month's preparation
in Israel, the 28 high school
students active in the North
American Federation of
Temple Youth visited the
Soviet Union last summer.
Their assignment was to
answer questions about the
United States and Israel, in
order to help Soviet Jews

who are planning to
emigrate decide whether to
go to America or Israel.
"We tried to be ambas-
sadors for both countries,"
said 17-year-old Dina Peck of
Monroe, N.Y.
"We told them what we
knew about jobs, housing.
"We really had no idea
how isolated and uninform-
ed many of them are," said
Randy Horton, 17, who at-
tends high school in Berkley,
Mich.
"A common impression is
that Israel is a military
state, constantly at war,
while the United States is
paved with gold," he said.
"We tried to explain that
both pictures are distorted."
