THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Revival of Traditional Pilgrimages
To Israel Urged by Rabbis; Action
Begun to Renew ` ► liya La-Regel'

Metropolitan Detroit's
Rabbinical Council has
joined a nationwide cam-
paign to encourage in-
creased tourism to Israel
and strengthened pilgri-
mages to the Jewish state.
Rabbi Moses Lehrman,
. ; president of the Rabbinical
Council of Metropolitan
Detroit, speaking in behalf
of his associates who repre-
sent Conservative, Orthodox
and Reform congregations,
declared this week that
there is an urgent need to
emphasize the kinship with
the Israelis and to bring pe

sonal messages of cheer to
them in the hours of stress.
"This is the time to revive
the ancient tradition of pil-
grimages to Israel so that
our fellow Jews there
should have the assurance
that they are not forgotten,"
Rabbi Lehrman said. "Our
congregations are united in
the spirit of cooperation in
the tasks of organizing pil-
grimages and of providing
encouragement in the links
•between the Jewries of the
Diaspora and Israel."
Rabbi Lehrman pointed
to the urgency of personal
contacts with fellow Jews
who are under duress and
need their kinsmen to up-
hold their hands in time of
struggle for security and
economic solvency. "But it is
more than that," he said.
"What is needed is the spir-
itual strength that one gath
ers by visiting and living in
the ancient homeland. We
need that inspiration as
much as the people of Israel
need our handshake of peo-
plehood."
The Detroit rabbis' pro-
clamation urging increased
tourism to Israel and
strengthened links with the
Israelis is part ofthe na-
tional movement for an
"Aliya Le-Regel," the task
•for revival and strengthen-
ing the pilgrimages that fol-
low old traditions pre-
scribed in prayers and
practices of old.
Rabbi Lehrman stated
that congregations have un-
dertaken to appoint special
committees to cooperate
with the State of Israel
Tourist Bureau and with the
Israel El Al Airlines in the
sponsorship of planned
group tours.
Benjamin Hershkovitz,
local manager of the El Al

Israel Airlines, welcoming
Rabbi Lehrman's announce-
ment, said that the commit-
tees chosen locally for the
advancement of tourism
will be forming a nation-
wide network of volunteers

to enhance the tourist trade
to Israel and to assure re-
tention of one of the major
Israel industries — that of
tourism.

Israel Zuriel, the Israeli
commissioner for tourism in
North America, stated this
week that plans have been
formulated for fullest coop-
eration with all the volun-
teer committees and to
provide them with means of
organizing and encouraging
the pilgrimages, in order to
make "Aliya La-Regel" a
traditional fulfillment.

I-n harmony with this
theme, the committee rec-
ommends that bicentennial
programs deal with what
the . Jew has done for Amer-
ica, and conversely, what
America has done for Jews.
Community groups are
urged to submit their pro-
gram plans to the Jewish
Community Council office,
163 Madison, Detroit, 48226.
Council will include bicen-
tennial programs on its
community calendar, and
will attempt to act as a
clearinghouse for bicenten-
nial observations in the JeW7'

ish community.
