York and Hank Havassy); "The Contribution of Adult Education in the Family in the Community" (Rina Cohen); "Basic Education for Immigrant Adults Hagoshrim Project" (Yaffa Schuster); and "Returning from the Dark" (Graciella Spector). These six papers make up Part III, Educational Institutions and Cultural Creativity within the Community: "The Community School--Education via Partnerships" (Yardena Harpaz); "The Popular University--The Classic Model vs. the Community Model" (Paul Kirmayer); "'Tehila' in the Community" (Ora Grabelsky); "Nine Principles in Creating a Community Play" (Yossi Alfi); "The Community Is on Both Sides of the Lens" (Ze' ev Zahavi); and "Regional Radio" (Yossi Alfi).
