Kiryat Malachi

Continued from preceding page

years ago, the Chatads have
their own neighborhood,
yeshivot, schools and factories
and, with two seats on the
council, they are a force to be
reckoned with. But, says Mr.
Vanunu, himself modern Or-
thodox, "There's a lot of
respect here for the religious
community and we all get on-
very well." Indeed one of the
town's model factories is run
by Meir Lerer, a member of
the Chabad community who
produces decorative iron bars
for windows and gardens. The
interesting feature of his fac-
tory, however, is that all his
workers are handicapped.
Though the task of managing
the factory entails more
responsibility for him, he
claims it also brings more
satisfaction.

In order to expand and
enlarge Kiryat Malachi's in-
dustrial base — which
already includes textile, phar-
maceutical and metallurgical
industries as well as Gottex,
the famous swimwear pro-
ducers — Mayor Vanunu is
now planning a major
economic forum uniting
Kiryat Malachi with
neighboring Kiryat Gat and
Ashkelon to examine how
best to attract investment to
the region. "My dream," he
says confidently, "is to make
Kiryat Malachi the center of
this region." With plans on
his drawing board for a lake,
park, museum and nature
center in Kiryat Malachi, his
dream may well become a
reality. 0

other nature is gen-
erous during Israel's
late winter and ear-
ly spring, when the country
turns into a botanist's
paradise of colorful flowers
that enliven the landscape
and excite the eye.
The region's combination of
intermittent rain and warm
sunshine and Israel's location
at the juncture of three con- .
tinents has resulted in the
proliferation of more wild-
flower species than in any
state of comparable size. The
winter rains swiftly trans-
form parched brown fields in-
to a lush green background
for the colorful anemones,
species of wildflowers that
bloom in Israel's brief spring.
Ehviromn.entally concerned
national organizations such
as the Jewish National Fund
(JNF), have taken it upon
themselves to nurture
ecosystems which create more
favorable conditions for these
wildflowers.
In springtime, according to
Rami Peled of JNF's Touring
Department, itineraries
geared towards viewing wild
flowers are by far the most
popular. The magnificent
Gilboa iris, for example, with
its thick erect stem and large
purple petals, lures tens of
thousands of nature lovers to
Mount Gilboa during the few
weeks in March that it
blossoms. lb facilitate access,
JNF has blazed new moun-
tain roads and constructed
picnic sites for the large
number of visitors.
Another popular and rare-
ly seen flower is the deep red

peony which blooms on
Mount Meron in the Upper
Galilee. But flower lovers
need not travel to the north in
order to feast their eyes on
Israel's rich array of wild-
flowers. Irises grow prolifical-
ly in the center of the country,
the blue-flowered Vartani iris
can be found in Jerusalem,
while rich dark brown irises
grow in the Negev.
Sightseers, however, need
not look far for Israel's most
common flower — the
anemone. By January the
greenness of the countryside
is set off gloriously by clusters
of blood red anemones, whose
shape and color resemble the
poppy which also grows in the
region. In the Galilee, mauve
and even white anemones can
also be found.
Among dozens of other
flowers that dot the coun-
tryside are purple lupins, blue
orchids, the purple and white
flower of the caper bush and
