Michigan's Maccabians

Continued from preceding page

York for seven years but is a
product of the Detroit school
system (Cass Tech and Mum-
ford) and the University of
Michigan.
If Linden does, in fact, go
to Israel in July for his third
Maccabiah Games, he plans
to take his wife Fran and
daughter Molly, 2. Most of
those selected say their
families will go along — al-
though arrangements for
them must be made sepa-
rately by the individuals.
The U.S. Committee Sports
For Israel (USCSFI) foots
most of the bills for the
athletes, although there are
some requirements for
athletes to help out depend-
ing on the sport or category.
On May 16, the USCSFI
and newly formed Detroit
Maccabi Club held a recep-
tion for the Michigan Mac-
cabiah representatives. Al-
though the affair was partly
to raise money, it was as
much to educate those who
came, including the athletes,
as to the purpose of the Mac-
cabi movement, according to
Max Sheldon.
"Now is the time that our
American Jewish youth
should be involved in the
Maccabi movement," Sheldon
says. "It will ultimately
mean the making of a new,
young American Jew."
Education, indeed, is vital
in the perpetuating the
games, Sheldon insists.
Many of the younger athletes
had never heard of the Mac-
cabiah Games, or at least
had heard very little about
them.
"Apparently the Mac-
cabiah Games aren't that
well known in the Middle
West," says Tanya Israel,
mother of Maccabiah
athletes Daniel and Laurie.
"My conjecture is that it's
been primarily an Eastern
Seaboard thing. I noticed
when I visited my folks in
Florida that there were a lot
of money-raising things
down there."
Laurie Israel, 21, is a
junior at Brown University
where she has been compet-
ing as a diver for three
years. She was a diver at
Pioneer High School in Ann
Arbor and finished sixth in
the state her senior year.
During her high school days
she was a member of the
famed Kimball Divers team,
coached by U-M diving coach
Dick Kimball.
Laurie's
17-year-old
brother Daniel is an all-state
swimmer at Pioneer who
competes mainly in the 200

and 500-yard freestyle
events.
"I heard about the Games
from my sister," Daniel ex-
plains. "She heard about
them from her coach. We
sent away for an application.
We sent in times and they
ask you a series of questions.
On April 14 the selection
committee met and a couple
days later I got a call inform-
ing me I made the team."
Daniel expects to join his
sister next year at Brown, in
Providence, R.I.
"The main thing the Mac-
cabiah Games mean to me is
the opportunity to meet

selected say their

along — although
arrangements must
be made separately.

other Jewish athletes from
the U.S. and around the
world," Daniel says. "And it
lets me compete in an inter-
national meet."
Swimming has taught him
"discipline and hard work.
It's a sport where you have
to be at practice every day.
There's fun in competing and
learning not only how to
win, but how to lose and
handle losing. That's the
main thing it has taught
me."
Last year's Youth Games
gave Barak Barfi a chance to
excel in distance running
events, where he won a gold
and silver medal, according
to his mother Esther. "When
he heard about the games in
Israel he really wanted to
go," she says. "He likes the
whole Maccabi concept and
feels it's good to be with
Jewish people. Barak speaks
fluent Hebrew at home."
The family recently went
to Israel, where Barak had
his bar mitzvah. Mrs._ Barfi
says he is the sixth genera-
tion born in Israel. His
father is Dr. Raphael Barfi.
Barak is a seventh grader
at Country Day school. Not
only does he run cross coun-
try and track, but he also is
a ranked tennis player in
Michigan, and in track in
middle distance events "he
has finished in the top three
in everything he has run for
Country Day Junior High."
Joining David Olds in
middle distance running
events is another Michigan-
der, David Krafsure. He is a
