Lemays Come Through War 4 Days
After Arrival in Israel; Describe
Adjustment to Life on Kibutz Sarid

AS Joseph Lemay put it,
"We had a wonderful four
days and then the war broke
Lemay, a Grand Rapids
printer who heads a family
of 16, had just made aliya
with his wife and 10 of the
children Oct. 1. They were
reunited with four others and
a grandchild at Kibutz Sarid
—only to be separated days
later as the older boys and
girls went off to fight in the
Yom Kippur War-.
But the war could not
daunt the Lemays, believed
to be the largest American
family to make aliya.
They spent three weeks
sleeping in underground shel-
ters, not far from the Syrian
border. Their daughter
Marie and granddaughter
were evacuated, barely, from
Merom HaGolan, through an
area overrun by Syrians.
Four "Frog" missiles landed
near Sarid, but most of the
damage was done to a neigh-
borhood kibutz.
Nevertheless, Lemay was
able to write Detroit's Aliya
Center director Gideon Biran
this month: "We love Israel
and Kibutz Sarid. The kihut-
zniks here have been wonder-
ful to us, and we are making
more friends every day. He-
brew is still difficult but we
learn more each day."
So interested in their ab-
sorption were Jewish Agency
officials that they have made
a documentary on the Le-
Last month, a movie pro-
duction crew descended on
S'arid to make the firm, for
distribution in English-speak-
ing countries particularly the
U.S., during February, Aliya
For a week, the crew film-
ed the Lemays all over the
kibutz—eating, working, at
Hebrew lessons.

Lem a y, describing his
schedule to Biran, admitted
that it is "difficult" for him
and his wife Shirley to awake
at 5 p.m. and begin to study
Hebrew. After breakfast at
6:45, they go to Hebrew
class with a private tutor
until 8:30, then off to work.
Mrs. Lemay works in the
garden, and her husband in
a sandpaper factory on the
kibutz. Under a postwar aus-
terity program, they work
longer hours — the eight
hours, in addition to Hebrew
class, which is counted as
time worked.
"During the war, we work-
ed straight through Shabat
and Sukkot and Simhat
Torah. Seven days a week.
It wasn't bad, but it was dif-
ficult to get a decent night's
sleep in the shelters. Now
we work four hours, every
other Shabat," he wrote.
"What I see of Israel so
far is very beautiful . . . we
have a very nice apartment
with a view overlooking the
Jezreel Valley, which is
breathtaking. We are anxi-
ously awaiting our shipped
goods so that we can start
fixing our apartment. The
food is good, and there is
plenty of it.
There is quite a lot of en-
tertainment — both movies
and singers, shows and even
chamber music . . . More
than we ever had in the U.S.
The standard of living on
this kibutz is very high, bet-
ter than we had in the U.S."
