ation emphasized that all the
summer programs work to
maintain a delicate balance be-
tween fun and education. "We
don't want to overwhelm the
kids, but we don't want them to
miss the tremendous oppor-
tunities here to learn. We want
them to go home feeling satis-
fied in both areas."
Leaving Herzliya, the jour-
nalists headed for the Sea of
Galilee, watching the land turn
green as they drove north. In
Tiberias, we toured the ruins of
a Roman era synagogue, whose
mosaic floor is mysteriously
decorated with Jewish symbols
and signs of the zodiac. The
group ate lunch at the Meuchas
Youth Hostel with American
participants in Sherut La'am,
the Israeli equivalent of the
Peace Corps. College students
and graduates volunteer for
one-to-two years to work in
their professions in Israeli de-
velopment towns.
Richard Bloom, 23, of West
Ora+, N.J., has been teaching
English classes in Yokneam for
six months, after completing a
three-month Hebrew ulpan re-
fresher course. Yokneam, at the
opposite end of the Carmel
mountains from Haifa, is a town
of 6,200. It is the site where
Elijah slew the prophets of Baal.
"My living room overlooks the
entire Jezreel Valley," said
Richard, "and Yokneam is a
place where everybody is invited
into everybody else's house."
Richard had visited Israel
seven years ago as part of a
United Synagogue' Youth sum-
mer mission. "I always intended
to come back, but not as a
tourist." His work schedule, es-
tablished by the school princi-
pal, has him assisting a full-
time teacher in two classes. He
also teaches English .to adults
two nights per week and works
on his own with a retarded
child. His schedule allows him
plenty of time to visit Haifa in
the afternoons. He occasionally
re-arranges his work load to
visit other parts of Israel.
. Mixing into the community
has been easy, Richard found.
"In many ways, I'm treated like
an honored guest." Although
many of Yokneam's citizens

have asked him to make aliyah
and stay with them, he intends
to return to the U.S. for law
school in the fall.
Sherut La'am has a strong
interest in aliyah, Richard said,
"and it is an ideal way to con-
sider it. You don't have to find
an apartment and you don't
have to find a job. You see a
more representative Israel than
you might find in just visiting."
Leslie Horowitz of New York
teaches creative dance and
English at an elementary school
in Bet Shean. As the Project
Renewal town for the Los
Angeles Jewish community, the
Sherut La'am workers in Bet
Shean have received some perks
above their standard Sherut
La'am stipend. Leslie and two
co-workers share an apartment,
with a television and washing
machine provided by L.A.
Unlike Richard, Leslie's back-
ground in Hebrew was limited
and she finds that she must
carefully plan, her vocabulary
before each lesson. Her students
are mainly Moroccan Jews who
are third-generation Israelis.
The Sherut La'am workers, she
said, are well-accepted in the
community. "We are constantly
being invited to someone's home
for dinner, or for Shabbat, or
asked to come along on trips."
Leslie- sympathizes with the
Bet Shean teenagers, who have
little to do in the small de-
velopment town. "The boys and
girls get dressed up in their best
and simply walk up and • down
the streets." She saw the Project
Renewal effort making a posit-
ive change in the people's lives.
Close contact with Israelis is
the object of a summer program
at Ayelet Hashahar, the guest
house at Kibbutz Gadot perched
in the Galilee. overlooking
Lebanon and Kiryat Shemona.
For several years the kibbutz
has had an exchange program
with American towns, hosting
Jewish teens from 'the U.S. and
sending some of its youth to
America. This summer, the kib-
butz is matched with
Marblehead, Mass.
"It is important for Jewish
youth from the United States to
come to Israel for a few weeks,"
said Yechezekel Peleg, a
