On Tour

mission. "I felt a need and
desire to go to Israel because
of my level of commitment at
home with the Young Adult
Division." Leader is a
member of the YAD board.
"It was a perfect blend of
history, religion, social
interaction and playing, "
Frankel added.
Despite the energy
exhibited by the group, many
were not adverse to paying
attention • to the guide,
according to Richard Broder,
26. "Everybody liked being
bossed around. Everybody on
our bus listened and
participated," the
management company vice
president recalled.
Broder had been to Israel
previously, but made some
new discoveries on this trip.
The best part of the tour, he
said, was "watching people
getting turned on to Israel."
Perlman offered that most
people come to Israel with
pre-conceived notions, that
the landscape is filled with
ruins. "People are not
prepared for haw modern and
green it is." He said he
thought "we would be
overwhelmed with Judaism
and religion" but was
surprised "how the country
can touch you. It makes you
proud to be a Jew."
None of the four had any
real complaints. They all
criticized the food, but the
real disappointment came in
what they were unable to see
or do confined to such a tight
schedule. Because of time
constraints, most of the group
did not really have an
opportunity to get to know
any Israelis. For Leader, he
had hoped to see institutions
dealing with high technology
as well as .agricultural
advances. But, he said, he is
not dismayed. "It makes me
look forward to the next
time."
Leader's sentiments were
echoed by Broder, Frankel
and Perlman. Asked if they
would return to Israel, all
answered "of course" and
"definitely?' Despite not being
able to meet their Israeli
counterparts, the group still
found the trip valuable on
other scores. "It's good for
meeting other Jews," Leader
offered.
Looking at their single
counterparts, the Detroiters
found many differences
between the two groups.
Israelis grow up faster, the
military is a significant part
of their lives, they don't have
much spare time and they
like disco music, much to the
distaste of the Americans.
Compared with Americans,
according to Broder, the
Israelis "work hard and play

hard:' Most of the Americans
found the Israelis to be
hospitable.
Other members of the
Detroit mission were Richard
Blumenstein Ronald Fry,
Rebecca Goldbaum, Lawrence
Handler, Cheryl Iwrey, Louise
Lessing, Franci Podolsky,

Deborah Schwartz and Sylvia
Sherman. Cost of the trip was
paid by the participants.
Would any of the group
encourage other singles to
visit Israel? You bet. Or, as
Steve Perlman put it, "It's the
obligation of every Jew to
visit Israel. It's difficult to
express what the trip is like.
You've got to go to believe it.
It's something you'll
remember the rest of your
life." ❑
