The conference, to be spon- sored by the Jewish Federa- tion of Greater Orlando for the community-at-large, will involve public services, community organizations such as schools and churches, government agen- cies, construction and archi- teural frms in an all-out drive to alter current energy waste patterns. Announced by Federation president, Marcia Kerstein, the proposed energy conference will be based on a conser- vation model designed by director of the Washington Action Office for the Council of Jewish Federations, Mark Talisman. Co-sponsored by the Federal Dept. of Energy, HUD and the CJF, the model was read into the congres- sional record by Sen. Howard Metzenbaum (D-Ohio) last December. Kerstein said that the con- ference's main tasks will be to sensitize the public to an urgent need for saving energy, provide the technical know- how, and establish a framework for obtaining federal funds available for this purpose. The steering committee, she said, should be represen- tative of the Greater Orlando community and will be com- prised of Jewish and non- Jewish members. "There is a great need to begin planning now," she said. "1 hope people with expertise or interest in saving energy on a commu- nity basis will call the Federa- tion (645-5933) and indicate their willingness to participate on the steering committee." resident, Mannle Lustgarden, tries to be patient as the construction Crew continues work on have new neighbors move ne.ct door, HERrrAGE photo by Brad Berrnan I TISHA B'AV, the fast of Av, commemorating Jeu> ish martyrdom since the destruction of the First Temple in 586 B.C., begins on the ninth Of Av, August 2.

Announced this week by Task Force chairperson, Myrna Newman, Sebrans' appointment will provide a professional liaison between Jewish Family Services and the many agencies and organizations involved in the resettlement of 12 Russian Jews scheduled to arrive about September 1. A native of Cleveland, Sebrans lives in Altamonte Springs since his retirement. During his career, he had served as executive director of the Jewish Community Council and JCC in Tampa, executive director of the Jewish Federation and JCC in Canton, Ohio, and Reading, Penn. He had also served as campaign associate of the FL Lauderdale Jewish Federa- tion. Sebrans, who said he "feels a high level of enthusiasm" ! LEONARD SEBRANS among community organiza- tions toward helping the Soviet Jews become a part of the Orlando community, will assume full-time duties with the Task Force about two weeks prior to the expected arrival of the first immigrants. As he becomes familiar with the project, Sebrans feels that one of the major priorities is collection and storage of furni; ture and household neces- sities.
