A Sabra Scout
Returns To Israel


Special to The Jewish News


Is Your Doctor a Sinai Doctor?

Not all Sinai doctors are Jewish. But
they've all got seychel, and they know
how to treat you like a mensch.

It's not easy to join the Sinai Medical
Staff. Applicants have to complete an
accredited residency program in a med-
ical specialty. They're expected to be cer-
tified by the national examining board in
that specialty. Their credentials are scru-
tinized by other physicians in their own
and related fields before they are rec-
ommended for appointment by the Board.
of Trustees.

More than 300 members of Sinai's
Medical Staff are on the faculty of the
medical schools at Wayne State Univer-
sity or the University of Michigan or the
dental school at the University of Detroit.
We at Sinai get a lot of naches from
our medical staff. If your doctor is not a
member of the Sinai Hospital medical
staff, ask yourself one question—and ask
your doctor, too: WHY NOT?
If you don't have a doctor, or are look-
ing for a specialist, call our Physician
Referral Service. We'll be happy to make
a shidduch.

ehovot — Anat Banin,
a 20-year-old Sabra
who spent most of her
life in the United States, is
hoping to convince many
other children of yordim that
they should follow her back to
More specifically, she hopes
they will join her at this coun-
try's youngest kibbutz, Har
Amasah, an isolated Negev
settlement now populated by
three score graduates of the
Israeli Scouts.
Anat was also a member of
the Israel Scouts but, unlike
the other people at Har
Amasah, she belonged to
their U.S. affiliate, the Sabra
Scouts. That organization
was set up several years ago
by former Israeli Scouts who
were studying in the States
and wanted to help the
children of yordim retain
their links to Israel.
Anat's troop was in the San
Francisco Bay area, and had
some 100 members. There are
troops in several other urban
areas, with the largest,
logically enough, in the
places where most ex-Israelis
are located, namely Los
Angeles and New York. In all,
the Sabra Scouts have a total
membership of some 1,500
boys and girls.
Meetings of their troops are
held in Hebrew and give
Sabras "in exile" an oppor-
tunity to keep up with Israeli
songs, books, sports and fads.
As is the case with the scouts
in this country, members are
recruited in the 4th grade and
can continue in the move-
ment through the end of high
school. Afterwards, Ameri-
can-Israeli Scouts either come
back to this country, take up
leadership positions or leave
the movement. Most, to be
sure, don't immediately board
a plane bound for Tel Aviv,
but some 100 graduates of the
Sabra Scouts have already
returned, most of them to join
army units like their counter-
parts here.

Anat, one of those 100, has
a typical story to tell. Her
parents first went to America
on a temporary basis. Her
father wanted to earn his
master's degree in Computer
Science at the University of
California. Then he decided
to do doctoral work, after
which — having gained some
practical experience in a
Silicon Valley firm — he
would return home. Indeed,

the family has been on the
verge of coming back to Israel
almost every summer, but
their sojourns here, so far at
least, have always been
Nevertheless, Anat's par-
ents were supportive when,
on graduating from high
school in Palo Alto, she decid-
ed to do what they had only
talked about doing. And in all
likelihood, she will soon be
joined by her brother, 18-year-
old Yo ay.

Koor Employers
Face Layoffs

Aviv (JTA) — Rescuing
the giant Histadrut-owned
Koor industrial complex from
bankruptcy will cost 6,000 to
7,000 jobs over the next two
years, according to news
reports here this week.
The planned layoffs
reportedly are a key element
of the economic and financial
recovery plan Koor submitted
recently to the Finance
Ministry and the Israeli
banks that are its largest
But Chaim Haberfeld, head
of Histadrut's trade unions
department, disputed the job
loss figure. He said the
number of layoffs in the first
year of the recovery plan
would be closer to 2,000.
Koor, the largest single
employer in Israel and one of
the country's major exporters,
estimates a loss of about $140
million in 1988. It forecasts a
return to the black by 1990.

'Israel In
Good Hands'

New Orleans (JTA) — Israel
can be confident it will be
treated well by the new
American administration and
U.S. Congress elected two
weeks ago, according to one of
the most respected Jewish
political lobbyists on Capitol
"We expect the 101st Con-
gress to be the most pro-Israel
ever," Thomas Dine told
thousands of delegates atten-
ding the General Assembly of
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions here.
Dine, who directs the
American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee, spoke at a
forum on the implications of
the U.S. and Israeli elections
for Middle East peace.
