Ho Delinquency In Beersheba
BY DAVID SCHWARTZ
(Copyright, 1955, Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Inc.)
Jews, it seems, have a pretty good record as far
as juvenile delinquency is concerned. According to
of Justice Hill of the New York Court of
domestic relations, Catholics in New York accounted
for 50 percent of the juvenile delinquency, Protes
tants. 45 percent and Jews 5 percent. While Jews
constitute 30 percent of the population of New York
City, they account for only five percent of the
delinquency.
Why is the Jewish record better? Authorities say
that the reason for the good Jewish condition is
tuc uuotuu ui alcoholism and the
lower desertion and divorce rates
in Jewish families. The child de
linquent is largely the product of
a disturbed home.
There are those who say that
the reason for the large juvenile
delinquency is that children
aren't whipped any more. We
should apply the old strap as in
times of yore.
But if all these authorities are
right, then it would be wrong to
whip the children. We should
whip the parents. However, may
be we shouldn’t whip the parents
either. Maybe the parents too
can’t be entirely blamed. Maybe
they are the products of a dis
turbed situation.

The other day I was reading a
story in an Israel paper about the
model city plan which is being
followed in expanding Beersheba,
"the gateway of the Negev."
The city is being laid out in
sections which are to be, as it
were, independent cities. The idea
behind it is to preserve the feel
ing of the small town as the city
grows. It has been found that as
soon as a town gets above the
5,000 population mark, the com
munity feeling is lost. So in Beer
sheba, it is hoped to preserve the
small town feeling even as the
town strides toward metropolitan
size. This is to be done by a pro
cess of “fragmentizing.” Each sec
tion will have its own business
areas, theatres, parks and so on.
Further, there will be a larger
park surrounding a general indus
trial section.
I was thinking of this "Beer
sheba plan" in connection with
juvenile delinquency. Isn't the
"disturbed atmosphere" which is
breeding juvenile delinquents and
parental ‘delinquents not really
traceable to some extent to tAe
loss of that neighborly atmos
phere which the growth of the
present helter-skelter city brings

about? Beersheba ought to have
little juvenile delinquency.
When the Jews took over Beer
sheba some seven years ago, it
had a population of several hun
dred. Today it has a population of
20,000. Beersheba is one of the
oldest of towns. Abraham dug a
number of wells there, say the
Bible and the legends of the Tal
mud go farther * and say that
Abraham erected a hotel in Beer
sheba—or maybe it was only a
motel—with entrances on all
sides, so that no wayfarers would
miss it.
The town still has some of its
antiquity. If Abraham were alive
today, he would be surprised by
the automobiles speeding by, but
wouldn't be by the camels still to
be seen occasionally coming up
the road. The Bedouins come to
town on Thursdays, market day
in Beersheba. It is a busy day in
the Beersheba markets then. And
what do you think they buy most
of, t next to bread itself? You
would never guess. Perfumes!
Give a Sheik a loaf of bread
and pour the perfume heavy on
him—and he feels like a real
Sheik.
I wonder if this love of per
fumes on the pari of the Bedouin
hasn't something to do with the
general lack of water and sani
tary facilities in that part of the
world. And in this connection, it
is interesting to note that Beer
sheba is becoming a center of
toilet supplies. The sands of the
Negev have been found ideal for
all kinds of ceramics and many
activities centering about the ex
ploitations of sand for these pur
poses are developing. Lately, the
Negev is beginning to get water—
thanks to new irrigation projects.
It may be that the Bedouin,
with plenty of water and sanitary
supplies, will be tempted less by
perfumes. In the days of good
Queen Bess of Shakespeare’s
times bathing was uncommon
even among the aristocracy and
perfumes were widely used tc
serve purpose which water should
serve.
