The Chinese delegation saw so-
cial activities for the elderly and
judo lessons for children with
mental disabilities. The visits to
the programs for children with
special needs included a day-care
center for children with severe
physical and mental disabilities
and a school that mainstreams
autistic children. Watching the
children during a physical edu-
cation lesson, one of the delegates
exclaimed, "I can't figure out
which of the children are autis-
tic!" The principal was delighted.
With notebooks full of what
they had seen and learned, the
delegation returned to Shanghai
to analyze the programs in depth
and decide which are most suit-
able for them. In the second stage
of the joint program, JDC will
send experts from Israel to the
Hongkou district to help imple-
ment and adapt those models that
most answer the needs of the lo-
cal population. ❑

DAN GOLDBERG
SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

In the early stages of our move-
ment, there was a dream about a
university. It was a great dream.
Dreams are always more beauti-
ful than reality, and it was not dif-
ficult to dream of the most
magnificent 'Temple of Learning.'
I dreamed that dream."
So said Dr. Chaim Weizmann
as the foundation stone of the He-
brew University was laid on
rugged Mount Scopus in 1918.
Little did most of those present
realize that this stone was, si-
multaneously, a milestone in the
building of the state.
Seven years later, at the uni-
versity's inauguration, its dual ob-
jectives were outlined: "To serve
as Israel's leading academic in-
stitution ... pursuing basic and ap-
plied research at the highest level;
to serve the Jewish people by pre-
serving and expanding the Jew-
ish cultural, spiritual and
intellectual heritage." Signifi-
cantly, among the members of the
first board of governors were Al-
> bert Einstein and Sigmund Freud
— a measure of the academic
heights that the founders set out
to achieve.
In the light of the pariah sta-
tus of most Jewish students in
Eastern Europe at that time, the
establishment of the Hebrew Uni-
versity not only opened doors that
\
were previously closed to them,

but heralded the beginning of a
new epoch in the history of a peo-
ple. Equally, it spearheaded the
revival of the national language
