Over 160 students registered and are taking ad- vantage of the fantastic offer- lngs made to them. There are two sessions per evening with a choice of 13 courses for each session. Never before have High School Jewish Youth had such great educational opportunities, and all this under one roof. We have Rabbi Lewis teach- ing Science and Religion; Rabbi Pomerantz, The Song of Songs; Rabbi Singer, The Holocaust; Rabbi Starr, History of Jews from Middle Ages; Rabbi Hirsh, Job; Dr. Butwin, Modern Jew- ish Literature; Dr. Arthur La- awier, Talmud and Basic Jew- ish Concepts; Mrs. Pomerantz, Jewish Home & Life Style; Moshe Ari, Israel Today; Bonia Shur, Music; and courses on Hebrew taught by Ruth Tiran and Rachel Racovitsky. The variety can appeal to all inter- ests. An exciting experience took place on October 13, when two Russian youth (one man and one girl) came and talked with, not to, the students. Classes were cut short that night so that Seattle youth might hear how their counterpart in Russia feel about being Jewish and about their connection with Israel. Our United High School provid- ...... ed the perfect forum for this Soviet Freedom Bus. Our Director for the High' School is Mr. John L. May, a young doctorate student at the University. Although his picture appeared in the Transcript a few weeks ago, there was no explanation as to why. So now you know. Others, whose pic- tures did not appear, but who were instrumental in establish- ing the school were Mrs. Harold Rosenbaum of Beth Shalom, Mr. Al Behar of Ezra Bessaroth and Mr. Sol Birulin and Mr. Sheldon Steinberg of Bikur Chol- im, Mrs. Jerome Becker and Rabbi Singer and Rabbi Starr. The composition of the stu- dents represents all the facets of the Jewish community as do the teachers. It's a real joy to have them studying under one roof and sharing their various backgrounds. I'm sure for many it's the first time they've had contacts with students outside of their own congregations. No doubt, it is the first time they've studied under Rabbis from other than their own con- gregations. We're on our way. We will welcome new students for the next semester which will comm- ence in January. This semester we meet in Temple De Hirsch- Sinai. Plans are that next se- mester will be in the new Herzl- Ner Tamid. Parents: Urge your children to attend. They're missing a fine opportunity to enlarge their Jewish back- grounds. When opportunity knocks -- have them answer! Over 35, Alone? Mayor Uhlman Cites There's h Mossafer for Service Club for You Are you having more leisure time, but enjoying it less? If so, there may be an answer for those of you who are 35 years and over, either single, wid- owed, or divorced. A new Jewish Single Adult Group had their first organiza- tional meeting October 18th. The purpose of the group will be to promote a purely social, rec- reational, and entertainment- oriented program for people who are seeking the company of their peers. At the planning meeting it was decided that the group will have regular meetings one Sun- day a month. Among some of the plans would be gourmet suppers with special emphasis on ethnic specialties, with music and dancing, conversation, games and films. Being an adult without a marital partner can be a very lonely and sometimes devastit- ing experience. The need for this group is clearly evident by the numerous favorable respon- ses to the invitations to the first meeting. This group hopes to fill some of the empty hours and bring people together for their com- mon enjoyment. The next func- tion is planned for November 14th at 6:30 P.M. at Temple Beth Am.

(JTA) -- Israel's industry, particularly the export branch, is growing more rapidly than any other area of the economy, Moshe Zanbar, Governor-designate of the Bank of Israel, reported in an address to the Press Club. He said manufacturing output rose by 12 per cent in 1970 com- pared to an over-all increase of 8-9 per cent in the gross nation- al product. Great eating begins with a great restaurant.

Mayor Wes Uhlman: Pelly Asks Israel Aid In House Resolution Congressman Tom Pelly has co-sponsored a House Resolu- tion calling for the shipment of F-4 jet aircraft to Israel in or- der to maintain the arms bal- ance in the Middle East. In a speech in Washington, D.C., Pelly declared, "Continu- ing Soviet shipments of adv- anced weaponry and the pres- ence in Egypt of some 20,000 Soviet personnel including com- bat pilots underscore the imme- diate need for supplying Israel the means with which to deter Soviet and Arab miscalculation leading to renewed hostilities." The bill not only would seek the aircraft for Israel, it would ask for such supporting equip- ment and assistance as are es- sential to maintain Israel's de- terrent capability. "Serious negotiations leading to a durable peace settlement are highly unlikely as long as the Arab states hope eventually to defeat Israel militarily," Pel- ly said. A similar resolution is being circulated in the Senate.
