Lana Harkavi counts among her clients
Demi Moore, Cindy Crawford and Diana
Ross. None of them, however, comes for a
consultation on Saturday.
Mrs. Harkavi is the founder and president
of Il Makiage, a New York makeup business
established in 1972. She also is shomer Shab-
bat, which means even clients like Cindy Craw-
ford have to wait, no matter how desperate they
may be for advice on where to put that rosy-
pink blush.
A native of Tel Aviv, Mrs. Harkavi introduced
her first cosmetics line in the 1970s. She cre-
ated everything from new colors to new tex-
tures, as well as a pure henna now available in
13 different shades.
Today, she not only offers a complete make-
up line, but is the author of T11 Make You Beau-
tiful and the head of the Il Makiage beauty

school, which trains makeup and hair stylists
from around the world.
Mrs. Harkavi spent her early years touring
the world as a professional dancer. Then she
moved to the United States and, fascinated by
transformations that could be made with make-
up, she planned to become a special-effects
makeup artist for film. She quickly found work
at theaters throughout Europe, then returned
in 1970 to New York, where she founded Il
Makiage.

T

Study Finds Texts Filled
With Distortions About Jews

new study, conducted by the Washington-based American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise
(AICE), finds that high-school texts are "filled with egregious factual errors and specious
analyses regarding Middle Eastern and Jewish history."
"Rewriting History in Textbooks" examined 18 of the most widely used world and American
history texts. It shows that anti-Israel bias is usually a result of factual inaccuracy, oversimpli-
fication, omission and distortion. Common errors include getting dates of events wrong, blaming
Israel for wars that were a result of Arab provocation, perpetuating the myth of
Islamic tolerance of Jews, minimizing the Jewish aspect of the
Holocaust, and suggesting that Israel is the obsta-
cle to peace. One of the most flagrant examples oc-
curring in more than one book is the failure to
mention that Syria and Egypt launched a surprise
attack against Israel in 1973 on Yom Kippur, ac-
cording to AICE Executive Director Mitchell Bard.
"The best way to correct the bias in textbooks is for
parents to take an active role by examining the books
their children are being assigned," Dr. Bard said. "If
they know or suspect that Jewish history is being dis-
torted, they should protest to the school, school board
and publisher."
