"We have only a'hahdful of citizens of Arab extraction." But the Israel Foreign Ministry. In expressing its regret today over the announced move, disagreed. "It's reasonable to assume that Ecuador did yield to Arab pressure as there is nothing in the text of the Jerusalem bill that changes an existing situation or warrants such a move by Ecuador." a Ministry spokesman said. He said he hoped that Ecuador will change its mind even though Hervas officially presented the Ecuadoran decision to the Foreign Ministry today. The Ecuadoran envoy stressed Rabbi Israel Feldman .

While in Rhodesia for three years, Michal taught modern Hebrew, holidays, and helped the youngsters with their Hebrew exams. Many of these teenagers still keep in contact with Michal and her husband- and they have greeted many of them In Israel. Michal feels that her greatest life work was helping 30 underprivileged youngsters who were taken into her kibbutz for a four year period. "These youngsters were from all parts of Israel and helping them was a 24-hour job. They were very bitter about life and society and not ready to do any learning. Some were very violent We helped them to feel a part of the Kibbutz family," said Michal. Many of the teenagers finished high school and some have made homes at the Kibbutz. Families of the kibbutz adopted the children and have kept contact with them while they are in the army, she added. Now, many kibbutzim in Israel are helping underprivileged children, as some 4 to 5.000 teenagers are educated in kibbutzim throughout Israel. After completing this experience, Michal was then made director of the primary regional school which served 500 to 600 students from 30 to 35 moshavlm in Israel. " Michal's plans for the future are to live in a developing town and serving as a teacher there. These towns are critically short of teachers, she said. The Ben-Yitzhaks have begun to feel a part of the community because of the very warm reception they received, upon arriving in Milwaukee. They especially want to thank all those responsible for making them feel so at home. 1 . , ? I -A J Dorit, 10; Oshrat, 14 months, and home on Milwaukee's West Side. 1 1
