El Al Exec Predicts Tourist Boom in Israel NEW YORK, (JTA) Mordechai iBen-Ari, presklent of El Al, Israel Airlines, reported here that tourism and air traffic to Israel had .recovered almost completely since the Yom Kippur War and predicted that Israel is "on the verge of a great tourism boom." He forecast a 15-30 per cent hicrease in Israel's tourist traffic in 1974, Ben-Ari said the "tremendous upsurge of tourism" would come from the U,S. and Canada as well ss Europe. He said that "tourists have become interested in Israel again on the assumption that a recurrence of hostilities Is very unlikely" especially after the disengagement accord with Egypt. He reported that air traffic and tourism began to recover u
soon as the Yom Klppor War ended and at a faster pace than after the 1967 Six-Day War. According to Ben-Ari, the two major sources of the anticipated tourist boom are "groups and individuals of Jewish organizations who come to Israel to demonstrate their solidarity" and CJirisUan pilgrims who "have an attachment to the Holy Land" and "believe in Israel" and Its liberal policy with regard to the holy places of all faiths Ben-Ari said the increase from the second group has so far exceeded expectations.

UhWORTHY ACTION Ljist Monday, a vote taken by the Federatioa'* B«reau of Educatioa Commitlaa on the community school buUding was defeated by a six to live vote. i saicrstaBd Mr lour ItafeMs voted agaiast Ui* iiiU. Atthwqth I am aMswyiiMd. I aa very dlaappvlaled. II laddrai nf la Ihiak It It caster (or Jews la share racilltlei with St. Lake's eharch thaa with each other! I feel we Jews have many more areas td agreenent than disagreement, and worUng together it to our best advantage. That's wtiy I am so saddened when our Rabbis can't seem to do this. In this particular area, instead of teachers of Jewish ethics and principles, they appear more like competitive buainess men. Somehow, they seem to feel threatened. I don't think our children would ' be contaminated, even if they happen to learn a little t)it about Orthodox Reform or Conservative Jewry, or vice versa, if that is what is feared. I Uke to think our Rabbit are as sensitive to the members of their congregations as to their ability to support and maintain all our worthy institutions and coMcs, and to try not to burden them unless there is atwohiteiy no other way. Although I have high regard for our Rabbis and like each of them personally, I feel this action was unworthy of them. DsrsihyC.BIehas THE OTHER SIDE I write to take issue with the reporting in Uie Jewish Press (2-15-74) of the meeting of the ' Bureau of Jewish Education at which the proposal for a "joint-use community educational facility" on the site of the new Jewish Community Center was rejected. It te correctly reported that tbeproposal was lost by one vole. What was not reported that there were several abstentions, that one member left before the vote and that the proposal of the Feasibility Sub Committee reached us on the Shabbat and was therefore not seen by many of us until Monday, the morning of the meeting. The repoK of the Subcommittee is quoted at length, as it properly riiould be. But since the report of the tone and results and the interpretation of those results are a direct quotation (ron the Chairman, Stephen Reikes, it would seem manifestly unjust to the committee, to the community, to the synagogue educators and to the rabbit that no other sfMiasman or point of view sgalnst the proposal was consulted or f quoted in the news report. I speak snly for nyteU. Tbottgh, following the in accordance with flw request ol the Chairman, Mr. ^ikes, the proposal was to the Board of ofTMiple Israel fai
llic^c^clitt^r fair representation of arguments for both for and against adoption. Upon hearing that report Temple Israel Board of Trustees upheM the psaMon of its representativea against the proposal. In my view it is not tnte that "there was general agreement about the economic advantages of the proposal." Discussion did take place questioning the present apparent advantage and highly debatable and questionable long-range economic gain. It is not true that "the proposal was rejected for philosophical reason." And, as is implied, it is not true that the rabbis rejected the proposal solely for reasons of philosophical difference. Nat one ward «( differeacc a( philatafhy was ever debated by the rabMs ellber privately or publically. Sack was canpleiely betide the paiat of the merit af the prapasal. We rabbis tMow «toar» wc stand philosohbically and yet we have always worked together in harmony serving our respective congregations but never losing sight of our duties to support the larger Jewish Community. The Community should know that st no time in the formulation of the proposal were any of the following officially consulted on the merits or desireability of the porposal: The Federation Board; The Jewish Center Board; The Board of any Congregation; The Director of Education of any Congregation; The Omaha Rabbinical Council. Relying solely on conjecture and, reportedly, the statements of Federation Board officers speaking personally but not officially, the proposal assumed a) land on the Jewish Community Onter site, b) fW.OOO.OO in community funds, c) that each congregation would approve and financially support the plan, and d> that the plan was sond reiigiaM None of tha above assumptions was ever officially consklered or approved by those in the respective areas of responsibility or competency. The plan was rejected, as I see it, as edacatiMully aat«md and practically «awarkable. For these nujor reasons each rabbi and each synagogue Director of Education — none consulted previously — rejected the plan. RabMMaeyH.Br«te Temple Israel MORZ DI8CU8SI0N I was struck by two articles that appeared akle by side on Page J or the February isth
not enough to cite the aeocurrent eventa and the real one's case. Beth El now proposes to construct its own school facility on s site which initially would be only a few blocks from the site of the proposed joint-use facility but many miles from the present synagogue. To be sure, Beth El proposes someday also to coaabruet s new synogogue; when that will be, however, I assume to be a matter of some substantial uncertainty at thii point in time. So, in the indefinite interim, expediency will continue to overrule philosophy. I have no quarrel with phiksoptiy. However, in any ditcussion in which parties of differing opinions are willing to litten to one another, at distinguished from talking at one another, philoaophy is not an abaohite answer to any questkm; it is but one element of the ditcussion, along with oilier things such ss goals, priorities, resources, cspsbilities, time frames and people. I woukl suggest, therefore, that the Board of Directors of the Omaha Jewish Federation and the individual
itaua of the Jewish Press. In one article former Omahan Philip Kluttnick urged critical examination of the structure of the American Jewish community with Uie hope that ingenuity and skill will "dimith, if not curtail, wasteful dtiplication wtiere it exists." Immediately below the Klutznick article was a second article which reported the decision of the Omaha Bureau of Jewish Education to reject a proposal for a community educational facility (not school) designed for joint use by the several synogogue sdiools and intended, among other Uiingt, to "avoid duplicatioa" of facilitiet. It seems to me, «rith due respect to tiie Bureau and its members, that the doseness of the vote on the jointHise facility, the significance of the issue to the Omaha Jewish community, the long-term implications for the community of any decision in this area, and the challenge of Mr. Klutznlck's comments dictate that additional consideration of the joint-use facility proposal should not be foreclosed.

Jewish Community Center It's hard to believe that the Jewish Community ' Center consists of a gym, a room, and two offices in the basement of Beth El Jacob Synagogue. It's hard to believe because the scope of the JCC program Is so broad that the influence is felt throughout the community. What is the Jewish Community Center? Is it Jewish fathers leaching their sons sportsmanship and friendship at the sacrifice of their Sunday naps? b it a bus load with members from 22 to 70 trading Jokes and corned beef sandwiches on the way to Omaha to see the Inball Dancers? b it profit and education for all involved in the Art Auction?

Bureau of Jewish Education From the three and four year okb in the preschool to the five and six year okb in the Oneg Ivri Oub to the elementary, high school, and adult cUsses, you can emerse yourself in Hebrew and Bible, in Israeli singing and dancing, in social studies and philosophy, and Jewish art and Yiddish and literature Talmud. The Ibt of cbsses is k>ng and varied; and though a major amount of the activity goes on at the school itself, much also goes on outside the buikling. The staff, made up of trained, entliusbstic people representing the whole Jewish community, go into the community to lecture at various schools and institutions. They arrange community functions such as the Hamikkah Festival of LighU and Israel Independence Day. They lead dancing or singing or discussitn groups at any of the synagogues or religious schools or organizations. They aid those desiring to go
to Israel to work or study by providing information and practical help. Six days a week they teach in and out of the classroom; at the flick of a "keepa" they're ready to load all of the teenagers on to a bus and take
them off on a retreat. Now that's dedication! The more you achieve, the more your horizons expand. The Bureau u no exception. They visualize an outreach program with staff available to bring education to those
who don't attend the school. They'd like to organize "learning at lunch", weekend programs, and family retreaU. They'd like to be part of Ladies Day Out and summer camping; and the way they are going, why not?
The Bureau provides cbsses for all age and interest groups.
