emember all those
long boring hours
you sat in Hebrew
school, listening to ancient
instructors droning on, trying
to teach you to read a lan-
guage you couldn't under-
stand? Well some of us actu-
ally endured long enough for
the ultimate revenge: becom-
ing an English teacher in Is-
rael!
Julie (Schubot) Hyman, a
former Southfielder, began
her teaching career in Israel
as an English instructor at a
Jerusalem yeshiva. She went
to Israel after obtaining her
arts degree from the Univer-
sity of Michigan in 1978. For
twelve years Julie had
attended Hebrew school at
Temple Beth El and was
active in their youth group,
Misty; also, Julie's grand-
mother, Pearl Nosenchuck,
had always been involved in
Zionist groups. All this
naturally answers the ques-
tion "What's a nice Jewish
girl like you, doing in a place
like this?"
"At first, it wasn't easy,"
she says. I'm the only girl in
my family and my parents
were apprehensive about my
being alone in a foreign coun-
try even though it was Israel.
Now that I'm married and
they've come to know my
husband Zvika and our one-
year-old daughter Veerit,
they're flying over to visit
two or three times a year.
Having seen the situation
firsthand, they're much more
relaxed since they know that
I'm perfectly safe here and
Zvika is taking good care of
me!"
Before marriage, Julie
taught at two public schools
in Jerusalem as an art
teacher. The job was often

frustrating as the students
had to bring their own art
supplies and would often
forget them. They were un-
able to leave their materials
overnight as there are no
lockers in Israeli schools, due
to the fear that bombs could
be hidden inside by terrorists.
"When I went to high school
in Southfield the authorities
were afraid of the kids hiding
drugs and knives in their
lockers and our art depart-
ment had a potter's wheel
and a kiln for ceramics, quite.
a difference!"
Judaism has always been
an important part of Julie's
life. Living in Israel has
helped both her and her fam-
ily to identify more strongly
with the religion.
"In America, it's not con-
sidered 'cool' to be proud of
your religion," she says. The
Jewish community has be-
come so assimilated that
many people of my genera-
tion have completely lost
touch with their roots. I don't
want this to happen with my
children. Israel has a very
healthy environment. The
kids here don't have to worry
about being molested while
they're playing outside, or
going to school and being
knifed because someone
wants their leather jacket;
also I can walk home in my
neighborhood after midnight
with no problem."
Julie is currently living in
a three bedroom apartment
in Maoz Aviv, a suburb of Tel
Aviv. Her husband works as
an internal auditor and their
daughter (who has the most
beautiful blue eyes I've ever
seen) is busy cutting teeth.
Julie is also involved with an
English speaking post-natal
support group who has
among it's members other
former Detroiters. "As well as
I am able to manage with the
Hebrew language, when it
comes to complaining about
the difficulties of child rais-
ing, it feels better doing it in
English."
