at acquainting Jewish scien-
tists in the former Soviet
Union with science and
technological education in
Israel opened here under the
joint auspices of Russia and
The gathering at Dom
Droozbah (Friendship
House), attended by more
than 250 Russian Jews, was
seen by some as a potential
recruiting ground for
Israel's scientific estab-
This was initially denied,
although Daniel Sperber, an
Israeli delegate, never-
theless observed that many
of those attending have al-
ready contemplated emigra-

Isn't there one more worth carrying on?

Friday night. The end of the week. The beginning
of Shabbat. A time to relax, reflect and renew. And as much a part of
this tradition as the candles and the challah was knowing the weekly
Jewish News had also arrived.
It brought news about the community, the nation
and the world. Today, that tradition hasn't changed. In fact, it's gotten
better. Each week award-winning journalists combine the warmth of
community with world issues using candor and compassion to
strengthen Jewish identity and...tradition.
Keep the tradition alive. Give a Jewish News
subscription to a friend, a relative, as a special gift. If you don't
subscribe, (and you find yourself always reading someone else's copy)
maybe it's time to start your own tradition. The Jewish News. It's a
tradition worth keeping.
