point: they're not a new people,
but rather 'a contemporary thread

on his latest book, "Israelis and

identity. His two-day visit here
also included . a • lecture at Wayne
State University and a series of
workshops for representatives of
Jewish educational institutions.
The latter, called "Ari Adventure
in Jewish Education," 'was spon-
sored by the American Jewish
Committee, Jewish Community
Council and United Hebrew
Schools. At the conclusion of the
seminar, the organizers announced
plans to continue the cooperative
"adventure" with other joint sem-

The Six-Day War had a profound
effect on Them."
While : the feelings of similarity
may have decreased, "their inter-
dependence has grown and been
sharpened by the Six-Day War."
The memory Of the Holocanst
too, has heightened the young
Israeli's awareness of his links
with the Diaspora: • "Most- do see
themselves as _survivors. You can't
see the Jewish identity in our time
except in the shadow of the Holo-
caust."' it determines, said Dr.

Dr. - Herman pointed out • that
Jewish identity exists nowhere
in isolation. The American Jew's
identity is related to his Am-
ericanism as well as to his Jew-
ishness. "One of the most im-
portant-things to understand is
the large measure of overlap be-
tween being a Jew and being
Israeli," he said. "Being a Jew
in Israel is much more per t
vasive than being a Jew in
America."
Most respondents to his study

saw the overlap and compatibility
between Jew and Israeli, said Dr.
Herman. "But among the Ameri-
can students, the majority saw no
connection between feeling Jewish
and feeling American." The Ortho-
dox students, in Israel, he added,
saw almost a complete overlap
between Jewishness and Israeli-
ness. He concluded that a weak-
