The Underground Museum in the Russian Compound in Jerusalem is where we learn about the giants that helped to create the State and paid a heavy price.

Yerucham 'Gerry" Katz was born in Kfar Etzion in 1947, lost his father in the War of Independence and returned home to rebuild his kibbutz after the liberation of Yehuda and Shomron in 1967.  This former refugee shares his thoughts with Eve on the Jewish presence in the Land of Israel as we approach 64 years since the evacuationand battle that saved his life and a Jewish Jerusalem, but left widows and orphans for whom nothing was ever the same again.

Sulam, the special education center in Israel, was established for children who need intervention but require a religious Jewish atmosphere.   Aviva Spetter is in charge of the autistic and delayed development educational track.  She explains the different frameworks, the goals and successes of Sulam, the mainstreaming, the programs that work in conjunction with government ministries and the unbelievable devotion of the staff to the kids and their parents.  Their co-conference this week with other organizations who work in the same sphere drew 2000 people.  The need is vast, the professionalism on a  very high level, and one cannot help but be impressed with their accomplishments.  www.sulamisrael.org  Hot line (anonymous) Hebrew, English, Yiddish 1599 5005 0440.
