The Absorption Ministry pro-
gram, coming on the heels of last
month's violent confrontation be-
tween thousands of Ethiopian im-
migrants and Jerusalem police,
will attempt to sensitize Israelis
to the needs of various immigrant
populations.
The first segment, slated to be-
gin in March, will take place in
communities with a sizable num-
ber of Ethiopians and will be or-
ganized with the United
Ethiopian Jewish Organization,
the immigrants umbrella group.
Later programs are expected to
be implemented in workplaces
and universities.
Harry Wall, director of the
ADL's Israel office, expressed hope
that by working together with the
immigrants, community leader-
ship and the media, "we can help
to address some of the concerns of
the immigrants to Israel and im-
prove general awareness of their
situation."

Archaeologists
Find A Secret

/-

Jerusalem (JTA) — A team of ar-
chaeologists appears to have
cracked the secret of perfume-
makers from the ancient Jewish
settlement of Ein Gedi, near the
Dead Sea.
Archaeologists digging in the
remains of the biblical village
found a huge watchtower, which
dates back to the fourth century,
with a hidden facility for making
the coveted balsam oil, used to
anoint kings and later manufac-
tured and sold by the village.
"It was considered one of the
best perfumes in antiquity, in the
early Roman period as well as in
the Byzantine period," Yair
Hirschfeld of the Hebrew Uni-
versity told Israel Radio. "The in-
stallation we found was actually
from the later period, so it was
probably used [to manufacture]
perfume, and not for anointing
kings."
The wealth of the village de-
pended on the superiority of the
balm, which was made from a
species of persimmon tree found
only along the shores of the Dead
Sea and in nearby Jericho. The
tree became extinct in the sixth
century.
Mr. Hirschfeld said the facility
included two pools, one outside the
tower and a smaller one inside.
The second pool was "protect-
ed by the tower itself," he said.
"Everything was under protec-
tion; it was a secret," he said,
adding, "We may assume that per-
fume at that period was made in
a special formula, something like
the Coca Cola formula. They
wanted very much to keep it as
a secret from the other producers
of balsam oil in Jericho and other
places around the Dead Sea."
The University of Hartford was
also involved in the discovery.
