Education And Aliyah
On Shaliach's Agenda

DAVID HOLZEL

Staff Writer

S

haliach Yefet , Ozery
has three main items
on his agenda for his
two-year stay in Detroit: to
promote the Zionist idea, and
to promote formal Jewish
education and to promote in-
formal Jewish education.
At his first public meeting
since arriving in Detroit
earlier this month, Ozery told
members of the Labor Zionist
Alliance and Detroit Naamat
at an Oneg Shabbat Sept. 18
that the resources are
available to successfully pro-
mote Zionism and Jewish
identity in Detroit.
He added that transferring
the shaliach from the
auspices of the Jewish Com-
munity Center to the Jewish
Welfare Federation puts him
"in a good place to be to be in-
fluential without identifying
myself with any particular
organization. I feel I can be
utilized bettor" through the
Federation?'
His office will remain in the
Israel Aliyah Center at the
Jewish Center in West
Bloomfield.
In order to promote the
Zionist idea, the first item on
his agenda, Ozery said it was
necessary to promote
"understanding of Israel in
the community." The way to
do that, he said, is to "in-
crease the number of people
who have personal experience
of Israeli life."
There are currently 400
short- and long-term Israel
programs, for all ages, for
singles and families, he told
his audience.
He said he was very im-
pressed by the formal Jewish
education available in the
Detroit area, but that "it is
agreed by everyone that [the
community] can do much
more to introduce Israel, to
introduce Hebrew education"
to local Jews.
"There is an uneasy feeling
that maybe kids aren't so hap-
py that they have to go to
Hebrew school, that it's not so
relevent to them."
The solution, he said, is to
improve the schools' cur-
riculum, by utilizing the
resources available from the
American Zionist Youth
Foundation and the Hebrew
University, among others.
"We can bring in the best peo-
ple and this community, for-
tunately, can afford it."
Ozery cited the B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization as an ex-
ample of effective informal

education. He said he was ap-
proached by BBYO to plan an
event for 200 kids. He intends
to make the program more
than just a social event.
"Let's make sure we give
them the hot dogs and give
them something else too."
Visibly enthusiastic about
his new position, Ozery, who
speaks fluent English, prais-
ed the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion as "one of the first um-
brella organizations to put
[aliyah] on the agenda.
[Federation] has taken the
position that aliyah is
something that we need to
support in the community.
This is something that was
unheard of ten years ago."
Armed with this mandate,
Ozery said he intends to en-
courage younger Detroiters to
join the "ingathering in
Israel."
Born in Yemen, Ozery was
six-months old when Yemen's
Jews made aliyah in 1950.
Ozery told his audience that
he was almost left out of the
mass exodus.
The family had to walk for
two weeks from their village
to the British port of Aden.
"My uncle, who was then 18,
put me in a bag and carried
me. On one of their rest stops
he put me down and forgot me
there."
The family walked for two
hours before Ozery's mother
asked, "Where is he?" and
the uncle had to retrace his
steps to recover the infant.
The Ozerys' journey to the
reborn Jewish State began
with an encounter with a
shaliach-from Israel. During
his talk, Ozery implied that
he sees himself as following
in the footsteps of that conse-
quential emissary.
