New Wave

Continued from Page 28

ty of skills have entered the
job market this year, Goode-
nough said. They include
physicians, laborers, carpen-
ters and machine operators.
JVS counselors try to help
them find a position related
to their training. Resumes are
circulated among potential
employers and staff members
will contact employers to ex-
plain the individual's back-
ground. They will even go
with a Russian to help fill out
applications, as a counselor
did with Boris Drigant.
In order for the Drigants
and other new arrivals to find
a job, they must first have
transportation. So, they turn
to the Hebrew Free Loan
Society. The Drigants were
able to purchase a 1979
automobile with money bor-
rowed from the agency.
The Russian loan program
provides funds of between
$1,000 and $2,000 to im-
migrants for personal needs
like purchasing a used car,
said Executive Director Ruth
Marcus.
"We have made eight to ten
loans in the last three months
to very recent Russian im-
migrants," Marcus said.
"They are now coming within
two weeks, and they don't
have jobs yet, so we defer the
first payment:'
The society requires two co-
signers for each loan, which
must be repaid within a year,
Marcus said.
"We talk with the co-
signers to make sure they are
willing to make the pay-
ments," Marcus explained.
"The co-signers are usually

Russians who have been here
for ten years. Other people did
it for the first group, and now
they are helping the new im-
migrants."
The cars purchased with
the loans can take new im-
migrants to more than Eng-
lish classes and job inter-
views. Like all new arrivals,
the Drigants were given a
three-year membership to the
Jewish Community Center,
where they can use the swim-
ming pool and other facilities.
Another program that ben-
efits the children of the
refugee families is scholar-
ships available from the
Fresh Air Society. Youngsters
from second through ninth
grade can spend part of their
summers at one of the Tama-
rack camps.

"Scholarships are available
for any Jewish family," said
Registrar Jeanette Tilchin.
"Families can pay zero or
whatever they can afford.
New immigrants are referred
to us by Resettlement Service.
The families come in and see
me, and I try to give them in-
formation about what to ex-
pect at camp."
Agency assistance was one
of the nicest parts of coming
to the Detroit area, said Boris
and Natalia Drigant. The
transition from one life to
another has been difficult,
and without help, it would
have been that much harder.
"It is so difficult to begin a
new life," Boris said. "There
are new rules, new traditions
to learn. We need help prac-
tically everyday." El

U.S. Jewish Official On
Private Trip To Jordan

New York — Malcolm
Hoenlein, executive director
of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, denied
reports that he delivered to
Jordanian officials "a pro-
posal" from Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir
during a visit to Amman, Jor,
dan.
Hoenlein said that he went
on a private visit to Amman
last week, at the invitation of
Roscoe Suddarth, the Ameri-
can ambassador to Jordan.
But he did acknowledge that
he met with the Prime
Minister prior to his Amman
visit and that during the 18
hours he spent in Amman, he
met with top Jordanian of-
ficials, including Minister of
the Royal Court Adnan Abu
Odeh.
The Israeli daily Maariv

reported that Hoenlein con-
veyed a verbal message to the
Jordanians and also told
them that American Jewry
will stand behind Jordan and
assist it in mustering
American support for its re-
quests if Amman softens its
stands on the peace process
and agrees to conduct direct
negotiations with Israel.'
"Because I went on a
private visit, I did not repre-
sent American Jewry," Hoen-
lein said of the newspaper
report. He also disputed the
report that he was accom-
panied to Amman by Max
Green, President Reagan's ad-
viser for Jewish affairs. He
said Green's visit was not con-
nected to his.
Hoenlein's visit was the
first of two missions to
Amman made by American
Jewish figures recently.
