children in Israel, the Chai
Chapter of the Association
of Parents of American Is-
raelis (APAI) was estab-
lished.
Founded in 1977, the
chapter serves as a sup-
port group for parents
whose children have cho-
sen to make aliya. Loc-
ally, APAI is an affiliate
of the Israel Aliya Center,
whose shaliakh (emis-
sary) acts as a liaison be-
tween potential olim
(persons who go to Israel)
and Israel, giving assis-
tance to facilitate the
move overseas.
The group has about
4,000 members nationally,

according to Harmon Bayer,
president of the Chai Chap-
ter. The national organiza-
tion prints a newspaper,
"The Bridge," containing
articles about APAI projects
and chapter news.
The Detroit group meets
several times a year to hear
speakers on Israel and to
share their joys and prob-
lems. Currently, the group
is preparing a pamphlet on
inexpensive hotels and res-
taurants they recommend
to parents who are visiting
their children in Israel.
Bayer said the local chap-
ter is working to establish a
Detroit hometown club in
Israel. He said similar clubs
have proven helpful in eas-
ing absorption problems
faced by new ohm.
One such problem, he
said, is getting mortgage
money to buy .an apart-
ment in Israel. He. said
APAI is working to
encourage the Israeli
government and the Al-
lied Jewish Campaign
here to make available
mortgage money for olim.
Among its projects, APAI
encourgages the purchase of
Israeli products "to aid and
support the Israeli
economy," Bayer said.
Members of the APAI can
make use of a "human mail
chain." Members traveling
to Israel will carry letters
from the U.S. to be mailed
there, and in turn, bring
back letters to be mailed in
the U.S. froth children in Is-
rael.
Asked what the general
mood of the parents is re-
garding having children in
Israel, Mrs. Lefton re-
sponded that emotions were
mixed.
"We felt - if our child
could make a contribu-
tion, it is all right." She
added that some parents
felt anger, that Israel was
keeping their children
from them.
The children of Detroiters
are settled all throughout
Israel. The Bayers' son is in
Raanana, while Dr. and
Mrs. Lefton's daughter,
. son-in-law and grandchild
are in Kiryat Shmona. Ac-
cording to Esther Tal, ad-
ministrative assistant at
the Israel Aliya Center
office in West Bloomfield,
morq than 1,000 Detroiters
have made aliya.
In 1983, 35 Detroiters, in-
cluding a family with six
children, will leave the De-
troit area for a new life in
Israel. -
