conjunction with the Israel

of the Jewish Welfare Federa-

recruitment. Some of the.
local Hebrew schools have ex-
pressed interest in co-
sponsoring the program, ac-

The program also is seen as
a boost for tourism. First,
Bar-Illan said, are the
students who come to Israel
to study. They all have
parents who will come at
least once during the year to
visit them. With each group

of students will come a group
of parents and the numbers of
persons visiting Israel will
grow geometrically.
Bar-Illan said there is a
benefit to the Jewish com-
munities whose. teenagers
enroll in the high-school-in-
Israel program."After a year
in Israel, the students will be
committed. The kids can be
active in the community in
the future. They will be an
asset to their community,"
she said.

Jewish Boy Scout Troop
Organized At Center


News Editor


n the hope that Jewish
Cub Scouts will have a
place in which to
graduate, a Farmington Hills
parent has spearheaded a
movement to create a Jewish
Boy Scout troop.
Sanford Newman, a Boy
Scouts of America commis-
sioner and father of a Boy
Scout, is heading up ar-
rangements to start a troop
for boys in grades five and up.
Plans are for the group to
meet monthly at the Maple/
Drake Jewish Community
Center. Because of its
geographical location in West
Bloomfield, the troop will ex-
ist under the auspices of the
Clinton Valley Boy Scouts
Council rather than under
the Detroit Council.
An organizational meeting
for the new troop will be at
7:30 p.m. June 2 at the
Maple/Drake Center, room
239. Parents who wish to
register their sons may do so
at the meeting. Those who are
unable to attend but wish to
enroll their children may call
Newman, 855-5331; or Jo
Greene, Jewish Center
scouting coordinator,
Newman said he recognized
a need for such a troop in
February when a Scout Shab-
bat was observed and 50
youth showed up, some from
other Scout troops. "There's
plenty of Jewish scouts out
there, in Farmington Hills,
West Bloomfield. There's
definitely a need," he said.
(Another Jewish Boy Scout

troop, No. 23, began in 1910
at the old Hannah Schloss
Building and was in existence
until 1987, when Scout-
master Nate Trager retired
the troop number due to lack
of participation. Trager had
been the scoutmaster for 58
Although no Scouts have
registered to date, Newman
said there is a possibility of
six to start a troop. The troop
will have a Conservative
Jewish orientation, and
Barry Levine, principal,
general studies, Akiva
Hebrew Day School, and
director of education and
youth at the Beth Abraham
Hillel Moses religious school,
will be the religious adviser.
One of the aims of the troop
is to emphasize Jewish life,
Newman said. "Each month
we will bring in a Jewish
theme, using the holidays."
Kashrut also will be a topic of
discussion. In addition, the
group will participate in
traditional Boy Scout ac-
tivities, such as camping. "We
want to give them a sense of
adventure," Newman explain-
ed. "We want to make the
kids feel part of the outdoors.
Ibo many kids have gotten
away from it."
No definitive plans have
been made yet for activities,
Newman said, because the
troop directors "want to see if
there's enough adult leader-
ship." So far, Kerry Greenhut
has taken up the mantle as
Scoutmaster. Newman will be
an adviser and resource per-
son. He said he hopes the
parents will become involved.
