"I'm Not A Wig!"

Whether fOr fashion or a hair
loss need, many women need
more volume to their hair. The
new Raydiance hair piece is
now the answer. Its patented
design adds hair just where it's
needed -- for added volume,
length or color highlights. The
innovative hand crocheted
invisible nylon net allows a
woman's own hair to be blen-
ded into the Raydiance hair

piece for a natural and attrac-
tive appearance. This design
also makes Raydiance secure
and comfortable for active
sports. And since it's designed
to be blended with a woman's
own haft Raydiance can also
be styled with heat rollers and
curling irons. After this season,
you'll agree that Raydiance is
the most exciting innovation in
women's Hair Fashions in years

Tourism

Continued from preceding page

was the language you heard
in the streets," rather than
the English prevalent during
peak tourism months.
Rabbi Lane Steinger of
Temple Emanu-El is also or-
ganizing a group visit to Is-
rael in November. "We have
had some difficulty" in at-
tracting people to the trip, he
admitted. "It will not be a
large group, but we'll have
enough to go."
Rabbi Steinger cited factors
other than terrorism — in-
cluding the expense of foreign
travel and the competition
among available tours — as
contributing to the weak re-
sponse to the temple's trip.
Calling his 37th visit to Is-
rael "wonderful," Rabbi
Spectre said he refuses to
wait for the world to quiet -
down before he will travel to
the Jewish' state. "There's
never been a time that some-
thing hasn't come up. If we
wait for a time when there
isn't something going on,
we'll never go."
While prospects for tourism
to Israel — the country's
biggest foreign currency
earner — appear to be im-
proving, efforts are now
underway, with the support
of Detroit Jews, to expand
the tourism infrastructure.
Israel Bonds, for example,
is working as a "clearin-
ghouse of information" for
groups interested in visiting
Israel, according to Hershell
Wais, Bonds' Michigan direc-
tor. "We're trying to stimu-
late congregations to take
trips to Israel."
"Bonds has extended its
network to include tourism
on its agenda,' explained De-
troiter David Hermelin, in-
ternational Israel Bond
chairman. Bonds sends out
one-half million pieces of
mail annually, he said. A
piece on tourism goes out
with every one.
Hermelin is also the
chairman of the working
group on tourism for Opera-
tion Independence, a project
organized by Jewish
businessmen like Hermelin,
Max Fisher, Charles
Bronfman and Morton Man-
del. The aim of Operation In-
dependence is the strengthen-
ing of Israel's economy.
Operation Independence
sponsored a tour of 210 rab-
bis in February, with the
hope that they would be con-
vinced of the safety of travel
in Israel. "Over 118 have re-
turned with groups or are
booked to return," Hermelin
said.
With Israel's 40th anniver-
sary approaching, Jewish
organizations are being
encouraged to hold their con-
ferences there. The Cantors
Assembly, scheduled to meet
in Israel next year, could
bring over 1,000 cantors to
the Jewish state, Hermelin
predicted.
Efforts are being made to
change tourists' perceptions
of Israel. Israel must not only

'

be a "spiritual experience,"
he argued, but a "tourist des-
tination spot" as well, where
travelers come for sun and
fun.
Operation Independence is
also encouraging Christian
tourism as well as business
visits to Israel.
On the grass roots level,
Operation Independence
plans to establish "tourist
councils" in conjunction with
local federations, Hermelin
added.
By placing travel to Israel
high on American Jews' per-
sonal and communal agendas,
tourism will hopefully in-
crease, pumping much needed
foreign currency directly into
Israel's hard-pressed
economy.
"Tourism is a resiliant in-
dustry," said the Jewish
Community Council's Allan
Gale. "It has tremendous
growth potential. But
America is the key."
There is still another rea-
son to visit Israel: "The ex-
perience," said Rabbi Spectre,
"cannot be matched." ❑

Extradition
Not Requested

New York (JTA) — West
Germany refused to ask for
the extradition of a wartime
killer of a four-year-old
Jewish child despite an
American request that it do
so, an official of the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council
disclosed.
Kalman 'Sultanik, chair-
man of the Memorial Coun-
cil's committee on anti-
Semitism, released the Jus-
tice Department documents.
The documents — which it
had obtained under the Free-
dom of Information Act —
reveal that in 1982 the Jus-
tice Department had asked
the West German govern-
ment to extradite and prose-
cute Bohdan Koziy, who had
been stripped of American
citizenship which he had ob-
tained after concealing his
war-time criminal activities.
Koziy had taken part in
various anti-Jewish actions
during the war as a member
of the Ukrainian police,
which operated under Ger-
man direction.

China Visit

Jerusalem (JTA) — Prof.
Yosef Singer, chairman of Is-
rael Air Industries and
president of the Haifa Techn-
ion, is visiting the people's
Republic of China, Haaretz
reported Tuesday. Singer,
who is considered a senior
scientist in the field of
aeronautics, is in China on
what was described as a "pro-
fessional" visit.
