enjy Greenberg was
surprised that an Is-
raeli teenager could
know so much about
American culture.
"He's just like us. He knows
more American rock bands
than I do," Greenberg said.
The Israeli teenager is
Ronen Kadar. Greenberg
spent four weeks at Camp
Maas with the 15-year-old
Kadar and nine other Israeli
high school students. Some,
like Kadar, are from Ramla
and the rest are from Yavneh,
Detroit's Project Renewal
sister cities. Greenberg's
family hosted Kadar before
and after camp.
Project Renewal pairs
Diaspora communities with
economically depressed
Israeli neighborhoods.

play. I want baseball to
become more popular in
Israel," Kadar said.
Greenberg, a 14-year-old
from Farmington Hills, said
he learned a lot from Kadar.
"I speak a lot more Hebrew
after spending so much time
with Ronen," said Greenberg,
a student at Hillel Day
School.
The Israeli teens also took
a trip to Mackinac Island,
visited Camp Kennedy in
Shingleton, Mich., and par-
ticipated in a talent show dur-
ing the summer.
Kadar said the hardest
thing for him to adjust to in
the States was the rain and
cool temperatures at night.
The summer in Ramla is very
hot and dry.
Greenberg and Kadar plan
to keep in touch with each
other. They hope to meet in
Israel one day.

Through the partnership, and
with Diaspora dollars, the
Israelis are encouraged to im-
prove their communities.
"It was really fun," Kadar
said of his American ex-
perience. "You feel different.
You feel something special!'
This is the first time
children from Ramla have
, visited Detroit since the Pro-
ject Renewal partnership
began eight years ago. The
children were selected after a
series of interviews by the
Project Renewal committees
in Ramla and Yavneh. The
Fresh Air Society absorbed
the camp costs; the Project
Renewal operating budget
paid for air transportation.
Kadar's specialty at camp
was sports. He said he learn-
ed a lot about baseball, a
sport just recently introduced
in Israel.
"I learned a lot about the
rules, the names and how to

s far as journalist
Marcia Cohen is con-
cerned, the history of
the women's movement is the
only story of the 20th century.
In fact, Cohen found the
story so powerful that she
quit her job as a

reporter/editor at The New
York Daily News six years
ago to research and write its
history in "The Sisterhood:
The True Story of the Women
Who Changed The World!'
Cohen, of New York City,
wrapped up a month-long pro-
motional tour last week in
metropolitan Detroit, where
she also visited with her
sister, Ceci Orman of

Birmingham.
"It shocks me when I am
asked why I chose this topic,"
says Cohen, who landed her
first newspaper job during the
early days of the women's
movement in the mid-60s.
"Very few women had jobs
when I started working. This
is the biggest news story of
our time. I've written the
ultimate story."
