[] TRAVERS Conti.ued tram page 3 Like Ms. Balint, Mrs. Sternoff said the most important aspect of the Mary Travers program was the momentum it gave to the on-going struggle on behalf of Soviet Jews. She said it aroused "long overdue" com- munity support for programs she said for too long have been carried "almost unilaterally" by Judy Balint. Mary Travers was joined in the program JNF celebrates Tu B'Shvat, 'Green Sunday' Seattle area Jewish schools will be part of 3,000 Jewish schools nationwide who will participate in the Jewish National Fund's annual Tu Bishvat educational program. The "Jewish New Year of the Trees" will be celebrated on January 25, 1986. Dr. Charles Fine, JNF President for the Pacific Northwest Region, said that adults in the community also will have a chance to participate in the Mitzvah of planting trees in Israel on Tu Bishvat. A "Green Sunday" has been proclaimed throughout the United States on Sunday, January 26, he said. On this day, volunteers will call Jewish households in this and other communities to ask that a tree be planted for each member of the family. A variety of Hebrew and English reading materials on Tu Bishvat have been sent to all the religious schools, for various age groups, as well as a poster showing Jewish tribes embracing against the background of an Israeli landscape. Last year's Tu Bishvat school program raised $300,000 around the country, and in Israel hundreds of thousands of lsraelis of all ages turned out at JNF planting sites to plant trees with their hands.

Mrs. Jackson, wife of the late Senator Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash., for years was a strong supporter of her husband's political work on behalf of Soviet Jewry. She has continued that support since her husband's death with her active participa- tion in Congressional Wives for Soviet Jewry activities and, most recently, by sponsoring and participating in the Mary Travers Program. The program also featured the lighting of a menorah in commemoration of the final night of Hanukkah. Each candle was dedicated by the child who lit it to a specific refusenik family, and collectively to the two and a half million Jews living under op- pressed conditions in the Soviet Union. During the program, Mary Travers urged those attending to continue on in their struggle on behalf of Soviet Jews and to "never compromise." "We must remember that in the battle for human rights, there is no room for com- promise," she said. "We must remind ourselves that there is but a very fine line that divides compromise from ac- complice.
