FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1988

munity support Israel by
visiting the state or by sen-
ding children for summer
trips. And those planning to
let young Rebecca or Avrum
stay for several weeks in the
Holy Land should be
prepared for costs that some
parents may feel are unholy.
The National Federation of
Temple Youth charges $3,250
for its summer program to
Israel; the Conservative
movement's Camp Ramah
costs $2,875; and Camp S'dei
Chemed in New York, which
offers a summer program to
Israel for Orthodox youth,
charges between $2,400 and
$2,600.
What makes the issue of
summer trips to Israel more
compelling for parents even
than their children's in-
evitable cry that, "But
everybody else gets to do it,"
is that such experiences
usually have a stong impact

on youths' feelings about
their Judaism.
Mark Goldman is one of
those who says his life was
changed by his visit this past
summer, with a NFTY group,
to Israel. He won a scholar-
ship from Temple Beth El for
the trip.
Goldman, 17, is en-
thusiastic when discussing
Israel. He speaks of a four-
hour-long talk about religion
with an Orthodox Jew;
visiting a kibbutz; forums on
the West Bank and Gaza; and
stopping at the Kotel just
before returning to the
United States.
He recalls visiting Yad
Vashem, Israel's memorial to
the victims of the Holocaust.
"I remember going into the
memorial for the children,"
he says, "and it took me five
or six minutes just to figure
out where I was. And then I
just broke down and cried."

Goldman is eager to return
to Israel. He'd like to take one
of the trips that focuses on the
country's politics. A strong
supporter of the Labor Party,
Goldman is closely following
Israel's upcoming elections
and laments the fact that
American Jews know so little
about Israeli politics.
Goldman says his trip to
Israel has reinforced his com-
mitment to and interest in
Jewish activities. "I feel like
I know a lot more about
Judaism and Israel," he says.
"And I know I have so much
more to give, and I'm going to
keep giving wherever I can."
HUC-JIR's Bubis notes the
conflict between the impor-
tance for Jewish teenagers of
traveling to Israel and the
high price tag that comes
with the trip.
In his speech "To Serve the
Jewish Family," delivered in
1980 in Detroit before the
