Proceeds from the dinner go

E.B. Freedman, ad-

ministrative director, said the
schools survive, despite severe
financial problems, because of
"parent commitment,
dedicated staff, support from

children's desire for a Torah

ADL Mission Links
Israeli, U.S. Women

ROBIN FREEDMAN

Special to The Jewish News

A

group of non-Jewish
women got a little
closer to the Jewish
community in Israel.
Sponsored by the Anti-
Defamation League, a na-
tional mission consisting of
American women in leader-
ship positions, took a 10-day
trip to Israel this summer.
"The purpose was to sen-
sitize them to the issues con-
cerning women in the Middle
East and in Israel," said Lin-
da Soberman, one of the lay-
leaders chosen by the ADL to
lead the group. "We want to
make American women
aware that issues concerning
the Middle East are not black
and white."
The 10 women chosen to
take part in the mission were
targeted as potentially pro-
Israel, or at least sympathetic
to the needs of Israelis. The
group included four elected of-
ficials, a journalist, an an-
chorperson, the president of a
private college and women ex-
ecutives from around the
country.
"It was a tremendous lear-
ning experience," said Sober-
man, a national commis-
sioner of the Michigan ADL.
"There was this incredible
bonding that occurred bet-
ween everyone. Everyone ex-
changed stories about their
own ethnic make-up."
The goals of the trip were to
see the country of Israel, to
discuss the role of women
there, and to promote
dialogue that would hopeful-
ly establish communications
between the Jewish and non-
Jewish communities in the
United States.
The group met with Israel's
top women leaders — Knesset
members and members of the
women's lobby.
"Most of the problems for
women in Israel come out of
the basic conflict between
civil law and Halachic law,"
said Soberman. "Israeli civil
law is far ahead of the United
States in terms of how women
are treated. But Halachic law
is still light years behind."
Marjorie Claprood, state
representative from Boston,

said that experience in Israel
helped her to better under-
stand her primarily Jewish
constituency.
"The only hope I see to
solve the problems in the
Middle East is to stop the in-
herent mistrust based on race
and political affiliation," said
Claprood. "We need to do a lot
more listening and less talk-
ing."
The group was led by an
Israeli guide. They toured
Jerusalem, visited a kibbutz
in the Golan Heights and saw
Christian sites at Bethlehem,
Copernicum and in
Jerusalem.
The Israeli guide also show-
ed the women the other side
of the Israeli conflict when
they were introduced to
Palestinians in Gaza.
"I think I understand a lit-
tle more of why it's so difficult
to solve the conflicts," said
Karen Holmes, an anchorper-
son from Chicago. "Religion
plays such a large part in
political decisions."
Judy Markey, a columnist
for the Chicago Sun Times,
said she left Israel with im-
mense sadness and respect for
the land and the people.
"There are so many dif-
ferent points of view and so
much intractibility on all
sides," said Markey. "I left
feeling it would get worse
before it gets better.
