For the Jews In Israel, it has bct-n a year of challenge and a year of crisis and, in this respect, a yimr like much the eight that have prr- cedcd it. And yet it was alao a year made quite distinctive by two new factors. Israel had come up against some of the very gravest emergencies of her lifo and had met them with considerable success -and, for the first time in a long while, attention was being given, albeit reluctantly, to the true character of Israel's neighbors and foes. Rosh Hashonah, 5716, had only just passed when the Czech-Egypt arms deal broke upon an astonished world. Perhaps; up until then, the total number of ncw&papor readers in the world who could clearly Identify Colonel Nasser had been relatively small. But from that om - nous moment on, Egypt became a far more familiar commodity to thousands of men. and women, and in Israel Itself it seemed a.s though war was only just around the corner. The rest of the year passed with security and defense taking the first place In people's minds. No one talked a lot about war, bul*ithe arma deal preoccupiod tho nation and tho melancholy and terrifying game of waiting for the West to decide whether or not it would help become almost a gruesome national pas¬ time. Thoro wore diversions. The coun¬ try's farmers did well, and would have done better had the nation's resources, strained to the utmost limits, been freed from the obliga¬ tions of defense. Industry stood up well. And now the oil wells ful¬ filled their early promise. The Gov¬ ernment stood firm, though the crisis occasioned by Foreign Minis¬ ter Sharett's resignation might welt have shaken the state serloualy. BG was back In harness and by and large people thought thia weis as It ahouid be. There was a aenae of unity and of an Increased Integration. If war would come. It would come to a na¬ tion united by a common bond and united to a far greater extent than anyone would have dared to pre¬ dict when the year began. Last year's Immigrants were turning in¬ to the Citizens of 5716. Problems wore plenty and not all were close to feotutlon, but somehow the pres¬ sure cooker waa performing mir¬ acles again now that the heat was GLASSES STAnT SUNDAY Mrs. Betty Shames, principal of Beth Jacob Sunday School, an¬ nounces that classes will open Sunday. Parents are urged to co¬ operate by bringing their children promptly at Ip a. m. •eiNDERELLA BAIX' TO AID BJ'S SUNDAY SCHOOL. Both Jacob Brotherhood and Sisterhood are combining their ef¬ forts and Inviting tbe community to their "Cinderella Ball," proceeds of which go to the support of the Sunday School. There will be danc¬ ing to Bob Marvin's orcheatra from 0 p. m. to 12:30, and a buffet .din-, ner starting at 10:30, with gifts and a surprise feature to be an¬ nounced later. Admission Is $200 In sales tax stamps, or $6 cash per couple. Immigration continued. The North African situation worsened and everyone shuddered for fear it was too late. Ma'aaborpt were sprln^ng up again and there was an atmosphere of emergency that seemed to belong to earlier times. The man In the street rolled up his sleeves, tightened hla belt ftnd pre¬ pared to sweat it out again. The best news was that slowly, grad¬ ually, unspectacularly, the ban against Immigration from the countries behind the Iron Curtain was being relaxed. Now and then, the curtain parted and Jews made their way to the Jewish State. A twin pastime, that of wondering If Soviet Russian Jewry would ever be allowed to como, became an antidote to waiting for Washington to make up its mind about jets. Tourists came and- went. So did Danny Kaye. So did the hope of an easier and more relaxed year ahead. Last month was hot, and there was a bus strike, and death on the borders continued its ram¬ page. Nasser nationalized the Canal Company and Israelis pon¬ dered the singular fact that larael so far had been the only victim of his highhandedness at Suez, If not of hia agitation in general. Rosh Hashonah, 6717, came and peace was as far away as ever, but the Israelis knew that each year of survival was a year of strength and almost everyone waa optimis¬ tic. If only war were not looming still. If only Israel were given time enough, and money, and. tranquil nights. But the man In the street somehow felt that perhaps next year, with God's help, things would be a little more simple. And Israi;), everyone knew, was butlt on' this kind of lllogic. SR.
