His mother's "enduring commit-
ment to Hadassah as a life member
and her devotion to Israel are pro-
found, and she has served as an
inspiration to us on the importance
of giving back and community," said
Bloomberg, who was joined at the
dedication ceremony by his mother
and sister.
Bloomberg's gift will enable the
six-story facility to add three floors
for departments of pediatric hemato-
oncology and pediatric psychiatry, as
well as high-risk pregnancy and fetal
therapy units.

Private Shabbat
In Istanbul

Istanbul/JTA — Shabbat services
were held at private locations in
Istanbul.
The precautions were taken
because of the suicide bombings at
two Istanbul synagogues two weeks
ago.
Meanwhile, several thousand peo-
ple rallied in Istanbul to protest ter-
ror attacks, which included four
blasts that killed some 50 people.

Ethiopian Deal
Progresses

Jerusalem/JTA — The push to bring
to Israel some 20,000 Ethiopians
who claim Jewish ancestry is gaining
steam.
The Jewish Agency for Israel's
board of governors announced that
the agency would share the costs of
the operation.
I "We all better be prepared to put
this issue oh our budget radar
screen," board member Rabbi
Yechiel Eckstein said.
He told a Jewish Agency subcom-
mittee on immigration and absorp-
tion that the agency is cooperating
with the government to help bring
the Ethiopians to
Israel.
The deal will
cost the agency
tens of millions of
dollars per year.
The deal, in which
Israel will deter-
mine a certain
number of
Ethiopians eligible

for aliyah and the Jewish Agency and
the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee will take
over operation of the refugee camps
where they live in Ethiopia, is being
pushed by Jewish federations in
North America.

Jewish Agency
Passes Budget

Jerusalem/JTA — The Jewish
Agency for Israel passed its annual
budget, which reflects a 10 percent
cut from last year.
The roughly $300 million budget,
which does not include funds desig-
nated by North American federa-
tions for specific projects, was agreed
upon Nov. 20 by the group's board
of governors in Jerusalem.
The group cut the budget both to
streamline the agency and in antici-
pation of an expected drop in funds
from the North American Jewish
federation system, which is facing
difficulties in its own fund-raising
campaign.
Cuts were made in such areas as
personnel — with 50 employees and
25 overseas emissaries slated to be
fired — and financial support for
Israeli nonprofit groups.

Internet Database
For 'Gold Train'

New York/JTA — Holocaust sur-
vivors from Hungary can now surf
the Web to find property allegedly
stolen by the Nazis and later seized
by U.S. forces. The Web site,
www.hagens-berman.com/goldtrain
has pictures and descriptions of the
personal effects seized by U.S. forces
when they captured a Nazi train
laden with Holocaust booty stolen
from Jews.
The personal property from the
"Gold Train" was never returned to
the Jews, and a lawsuit that relies on
classified documents is under way to
recover the assets, which the lawsuit
claims were appropriated by mem-
bers of the U.S. Army.
A September 2002 court ruling
waived the United States' sovereign
immunity in the case, allowing the
lawsuit to go forward.
