KAPPORAH/from page 6

habah min evarah — a mitz-
vah which is derived from a
sin — which is no mitzvah at
all.
I have seen the ceremony on
many occasions. The birds are
often kept in milk crates by
people who ordinarily do not
raise or care for them. They
are not slaughtered im-
mediately after the ceremony.
Last year during Yom Kip-
pur I was so upset by the sight
of these birds in plastic milk
crates without food or water
that I complained. These
birds were not going to be
sent to the slaughterhouse
until after Yom Kippur and
they were purchased before
yom tov. They were to spend
at least two or three days
without food or water. This is
not at all unusual .. .

Women In Golan
Erect Tent of Peace

Moshav Eli Al, Israel
(JTA) — Over the years,
thousands of Israeli soldiers
have pitched their tents on
the barren hills of the Golan
Heights, ready to deflect an
attack by Syria.
Now a group of Jewish
women from the area have
set up a "peace tent" to
demonstrate their desire for
peaceful relations with their
Arab neighbors.
Overlooking the Syrian
village of Ibanid, the tent
was the brainchild of the
Women's Forum, a non-
partisan group comprised of
local residents, both re-
ligious and secular.
Two weeks ago, 75 women
and their children gathered
at Moshav Eli Al, near the
Syrian border, to pitch the
tent. One of the participants,
megaphone in hand, ad-
dressed the crowd in Hebrew
and Arabic, as brightly
colored balloons and a flock
of doves were sent over the
border.
Since then, the women
have been posted at the tent
on a rotating basis.
The decision to erect the
tent, was "a spontaneous ac-
tion by the women of the
Golan," said Debbie Atoun,
who helped organize the
event. "We are trying to
show people everywhere
that the Golan is part of
Israel, and that our presence
is not an obstacle to peace."

Ms. Atoun called the tent
"an attempt to extend the
hand of friendship" toward
their counterparts on the
other side of the border.
"We are calling on womerr i
in Syria to make similar
efforts in an attempt to help_:
create an understanding
between both sides," she
said.

"We would like to meet
them and see if there is o
willingness for peace," she j
added. "We hope that they
saw the balloons we sent
over and heard our words of
friendship over the
megaphone."

But the doves, Ms. Atom?
noted wryly, "refused to fly_
over the border."
In addition to setting up
the tent, the women have
joined forces with other
Golan activists in an at-
tempt to press for continuing —
Israeli control of the region.
They have demonstrated in'.‘
front of the Prime Minister's
Office and appealed to
Knesset members through a ,)
letter-writing campaign.
"We are trying to do some-,,,
thing to save our homes and
to show Israelis what the
Golan means to them," said
Ms. Atoun.
So far, there has been no
reaction to the tent from the I.
Syrian women, said Ms.
Atouri, "but that won't stop
us from trying."
