Amitai was one of the first editors, directors and writers for the radio network of Israel's Defense Army. He was editor in one of Israel's most impor- tant dailies, "Davar," and in the illustrated magazine "Dvar Hashavua;" an author of many articles, theater plays, co- author of a book, and author of numerous radio scripts. His travels include partici- pating in a rescue mission in a terrifying earthquake seen on the Greek Islands to being one of the few people in the world to participate in a deep jungle expedition to the Amazon in Brazil. As native of Israel, he has thorough knowledge of that country's special economic and political problems-- much of which stem from the massive immigration into that country for over 25 years,- the country's struggle for eco- nomic independence and the constant buildup as a strong and proud nation. He speaks six languages and his extensive travels have given him the opportunity to study Jewish communal life in many different countries. Amitai was also at Camp David during the Carter-Sadat- Begin summit as part of the media corp writing a daily news analysis. Minimum gift to attend the brunch is $365. Brunch cost is $7.50.

HERITAGE photo by Badoma-Coeltaon-R0th Abe Schilowitz Keeps Kinneret in Campaign Orlando's "up-beat" Combined Jewish Appeal has ended its second week and Abe Schilowitz has seen to it that residents of Kin- neret I and 11 have done their part to help the campaign. Schilowitz has been soliciting money for LUA campaigns for three years because "it's for a good cause and rm helping my young people," he said and "furthermore how can you go to bed at night without doing your best for Israel." Schilowitz, who came to Orlando seven years ago from New York, said "1 liketo appeal for donations especially with the need of Israel being so great. Israel needs people from all parts of the world. It has to ransom people." The six-year resident of Kinneret I said his solicita- tions so far have been good but "a little better wouldn't hurt. rye already received a few thousand dollars." He said he'd "like to see that more contributions are made each year." A member of Congr. Ohev Shalom and the syna- gogue's Men's Club, Schilowitz said it "is good to be involved, and besides, someone has to do it." Jack Levine, who also came to Kinneret six years ago, feels Schilowitz's work is a "very good thing for the community. I am very glad to be a part of it and we do as much as we can to help him (Schilowitz)." Tightly gripping a pile of pledge cards, Schilowitz ABE SCHILOWITZ smiled and said, "1 hope to go over the goal and there should be peace in the world..."
