By SYBIL KAUFMAN
Joe Zias grew up in Ypsi-
lanti, Pa town with a Jewish
population of some five fam-
ilies.
But while he was work-
ing his way through Wayne
State University, Zias be-
came interested in Israel's
one-year "Peace Corps" pro-
gram, Sherut La'Am.
So he dropped out of school
to work on Kibutz Kfar
Glickson, and when the Six-
Day War broke out, decided
to remain.
He spoke to Sherut La'Am

officials, and after the Six-
Day War, was offered a job
as a leader for volunteers
working on Mount Scopus.
In Jerusalem, Zias was
given supervision over 100
volunteers with two other
leaders. They were respon-
sible for the rehabilitation of
buildings, through cleanup,
then actual rebuilding.
One of his volunteers was
Sandi Chez of Chicago, who
had worked as a manuscript
editor for the American Med-
ical Association, but when
the Six-Day War broke out,
decided to go to Israel. She
f ound herself plastering
walls on Mount Scopus, un-
der the direction of Zias.
After eight months, they
returned to the U.S.—she to
Chicago to teach junior high
school English and he back
to Wayne State where he re-
ceived his BA degree in so-
ciology in 1969.
After their marriage, Zias'
wife began to teach mentally
retarded children. He had
picked up an interest in an-
thropology while in Israel,
so when he found no grad-
uate programs in this field
in Israel, he applied for
graduate school at Wayne
State. In 1971, Zias received
his MA in anthropology, and
in August they went on aliya.
Zias described Israel as "a
very positive experience for
us. I was here in periods of
crisis, the times you see peo-
ple at their best, and this
impression brought us back.
I was particularly impressed
with the kibutz and its peo-

abroad who are doing re-

The outbreak of the Yom
Kippur War caught Zias in
the U.S. attending a confer-
ence. He was not able to
catch a plane back until
after the fighting stopped.
But he spent the next few
weeks working as—what else
—a volunteer on a kibutz.

ple and we still maintain
close ties with them."
After five months in the
Beersheba absorption c e n -
ter, Zias found work, and
they moved to Jerusalem.
Mrs. Zias now teaches Eng-
lish at the American Ulpan
and is working on her MA in
American literature at the
Hebrew University.
He works as a curator for
the department of antiquities,
whose office is at the Rocke-
feller Museum, and he is re-
sponsible for the preserva-
tion of the collections there.
