When four Israeli 16 year
olds visited Detroit last
week, the American teena-
gers they met wanted to
know how they were alike,
not how they were different.
As "goodwill ambas-
sadors" of the Israeli gov-
ernment, Udi Wolpe of Re-
hovot, Hagit Toledano of
Migdal Ha'emek, Shiri
Gootman of Hadera and
Moshe Fishman of Ashdod
discovered that their
American counterparts
were very interested in Is-
rael but didn't know much
about it.
pre-
During
class
sentations arranged by the
Jewish Community Council
of Metropolitan Detroit at
University of Detroit High,
Southfield-Lathrup, Luthe-
ran High, Birmingham
Groves, Renaissance High,
Ferndale High, Henry Ford
High and United Hebrew
Schools, the four Israelis
dispelled misconceptions
and made friends.
Most of the questions they
encountered were about
everyday life rather than
the political climate. Stu-
dents wanted to know
"What do you do with your
free time? What are clo-
thing styles like?"
Initial mentions of Is-
rael's fast-food chain
"McDavid's" elicited chuck-
les. The Israelis hadn't yet
been introduced to
McDonald's.
Following their visit to
Luthern High School
Northwest, German/
English teacher Martha
Smyth wrote: "It was our
school's pleasure to host
Hagit and Udi from Israel. I
was anxious to meet and
have them talk to my Ger-
man classes because I knew
they would be 'living Israeli
culture.' It was an excellent
opportunity for our students
to be exposed, through these
two young people, to Israeli
life.
"Almost immediately
they established a wonder-
ful rapport with the stu-
dents. My class and I found
their descriptions of kibutz
life, the geography of Israel
and school life especially in-
teresting. We also enjoyed
hearing about Israeli tele-
vision, weather and mili-
tary service.

"Thank you for bringing
them to us."
At Ferndale and Univer-
sity of Detroit high schools,
students did ask some polit-
ical questions of Hagit and
Udi. "They asked about the
Palestinians, about our
government and about
Lebanon," said the Israelis.
"What we found
heartwarming was that
they did not doubt our an-
swers."
Says Shiri of the group's
preparedness to answer
questions, "The tense at-
mosphere in Israel forces us,
whether we want to or not,
to take an interest in every-
thing that happens in Israel
and abroad. We are aware of
the daily developments and
surprises."
Despite the tension of
which Shiri spoke, she also
expressed bewilderment at
the identification badge
which was made for her
when she visited Henry
Ford High. Such identifica-
tion is not necessary at her
school in Israel.
The Israeli students were
able to tell their audiences
at area high schools that,
aside from the two years of
military service which they
perform at the conclusion of
high school, young people in
Israel lead, by American
standards, a quite normal
life.
Chosen from thousands of
applicants, the Israeli stu-
dents are part of a delega-
tion traveling throughout
the United States.
Following teacher's
recommendations, each in-
terested Israeli student
undergoes a series of inter-
views before becoming a
part of the delegation.
In answer to the question
of whether they'd like to re-
turn to the U.S. to live, they
responded in unison, "It's a
nice place to visit."
