rescued last spring and the
hundreds of thousands of
Soviet Jews who have arriv-
ed in the last two years.
Everyone realizes that,
despite the economic drain
and personal hardships,
these people represent the
lifeblood of the Jewish state.
They are the future.
The Jewish Agency is
responsible for the first year
of immigrant care, from
housing to acculturation.
During that time, the
government is building
housing, much of which is in
the form of temporary
"caravans," in areas remov-
ed from mainstream
employment.
Officials acknowledge that
there are a host of problems
to be dealt with — economic,
social, psychological and
cultural — but maintain
that they are doing the best
they can.
They praise unsung heroes
like Tziki Ud, the director of
the Shalom Hotel, whose
professional skills and
human compassion are
tested each day in ways no
social worker is adequately
trained to deal with. Like
the first day of school, when
Ethiopian parents panicked
at the sight of large yellow
buses in the Shalom parking
lot, waiting to take their
children to school.
The only other time the
parents had seen such buses
was in Addis Ababa several
months before, when they
were used to transport
families to the airport. The
parents were now fearful
that their children were be-
ing sent away.

Enter Mr. Ud, who
restored calm by explaining
the situation to a group of
kessem, the Ethiopian Jews'
elders and priests, and asked
them to come outside and
bless the buses and children.
The day I visited the
Shalom, media attention
was on the Arab-Israeli
"corridor diplomacy" taking
place at the State Depart-
ment in Washington and
tension between Arabs and
Jews in the Silwan neigh-

borhood of east Jerusalem.
But having seen a glimpse of
the daily absorption process,
removed from the daily
headlines, I came to under-
stand that Israel's future is
dependent not only on its re-
lations with Arabs, but its
ability to weave unskilled,
naive, deeply religious Ethi-
opian Jews as well as highly
educated, industrious,
secular Soviet Jews into the
fabric of Israeli life.
The success or failure of
those endeavors will be the
legacy of a Jewish state
striving mightily to deal
with its enemies while em-
bracing its newly discovered
brethren. ❑
