JAY AND BLANCHE JOSEPH

During recent months, steer-
ing committees have been
formed and Diaspora communi-
ty representatives have found
themselves working side by side
with planners, Israeli mayors,
and Jewish Agency representa-
tives in the decision-making and
implementation of projects in the
different regions.
The Carmiel-Misgav region is
situated in the central Galilee.
Surrounded by hills and valleys,
it incorporates the undeveloped,
urban area of the Misgav Re-
gional Council (21 community
villages, six kibbutzim, a
moshav, a mobile home site and
a Bedouin town), and the bur-
geoning city of Carmiel (popula-
tion 34,000).
In order to develop the region's
infrastructure and make it eco-
nomically independent of the
nearby city of Haifa, plans in-
clude the establishment of new
industries, exporting goods from
new factories, developing tech-
nology and business incubators
(offices where "start-up" compa-
nies are encouraged to rent space
at low cost and are offered advice
and support) and improving
tourist sites and community and
health services.
Carmiel Mayor Adi Eldar
stressed that the partnership
also will include visits of Ameri-
can Jewish youth from Balti-
more/Pittsburgh communities to
the summer camp which is
planned for Carmiel. Here, Jew-
ish youngsters will participate
with their Israeli counterparts.
The Mtizpe Ramon-Ramat
Negev region, partnered with a
group of European Keren
Hayesod countries, is situated in
the heart of the Negev desert.
Ramat Negev is the largest re-
gional council from a territorial
point of view, but is sparsely pop-
ulated, with 75 percent of the
land designated for military
training. Ramat Negev compris-
es seven rural settlements, two
educational-scientific communi-
ties and two community villages.
Plans for the area include the
building of a spectacular $1 mil-
lion tourist spa complex featur-
ing swimming pools, Jacuzzi, a
health treatment center, saunas,
a restaurant and parking, and
the transformation of the old
"Spice Route" (the route the
Nabateans traveled, carrying
spices and perfumes from Ara-
bia to Gaza) into an "interna-
tional tourist road."
The Jewish Agency's country-
wide economic development
units are available to small busi-
nesses needing help and advice,
including small tourism-orient-
ed enterprises such as bed-and-
breakfast businesses and jeep
tours.
The Tzahar region in the
north was chosen by the Jewish
