From the Prime Minister's Office Begin 's Secretary To Speak in Orlando Prime Minister Menachem Begin's personal secretary, Yona Klimovitzky, will speak in Orlando at Shabbat services Fri., Apr. 18, at Temple Israel and Sat., Apr. 19, at Congr. Ohev Shalom. Klimovitzky, as the personal private secretary to the prime Minister, is responsible for conducting the affairs of the Prime Minister's bureau, deals with the Premier's correspondence, appointments, schedules, official social events and political forums. Begin brought Klimovitzky with him to the Prime Minister's Office after she served him as private secretary during his period as leader of the opposition. Born in Rumania, she was three years old when her family settled in Israel. After high school she joined the Israel Defence Forces where she served for five years in the intelligence branch. She was then awarded a scholar- ship to Cambridge University, England, where she studied English literature. She speaks six languages. By virtue of her title and experience Klimovitzky is in a unique position to share personal and intimate insights with the life and work of Israel's Prime Minister at one of the most dramatic junctures of Israel's history. 11 More Soviet Jews Refugees to Seek Freedom in Orlando While the Jewish com- munity spends this week remembering their ancestors' escape from bondage in observing Passover, several thousand Soviet Jews await in Rome to be brought to a free land and I ] of them will make their home in Orlando.

They have "total freedom to choose," Sale said, and "they chose to escape from bondage and now they should also choose where to go." The task force has success- fully resettled 23 Soviet Jews, all of whom are now financially supporting themselves. Joe Greenspun, in charge of raising .funds for resettlement, estimates that about $7,000 will have to be raised through private solicitation. A government block grant will provide $963 for each person Orlando takes in. Greenspun is sure the money can he raised because, he said. "if there is any Jew in any place that needs help, we have to help him."
