'‘INT

pretty, and the Israelis work-
ed hand in hand with their
neighbors. They all pitched in
and helped with farming."
In Tel Aviv, he observed
Shabbat at a Sephardic
synagogue. Masada was the
group's next destination. "I
heard about it, but it was
unbelievable that 900 people
could live on top of a moun-
tain," he said.
The following day, Silvers-
tein floated in the Dead Sea,
covering his body with the
mineral-filled mud, and he
swam in Ein Gedi's mineral
waters.
The trip was concluded with
a tour of Yad Vashem. "When
you walk in the children's
memorial, you see pictures of
happy faces," he noted. "Then
you walk into a darker side of
it and see stars representing
the 1,500,000 children who
were killed, and there's a
voice that continuously reads
off the names."
Silverstein learned that the
two most important things to
Israelis are "children and
land." "If anything ever hap-
pened to the youth groups
that go to Israel, it would-
deter tourism to the greatest
extent," he said. "So, they
(Israelis) are going to take
every effort to make sure
nothing happens to the
tourists or the children who
visit Israel."
When the week was over,
Silverstein did not want to
leave. "They took us that
week to places that the
American media describes as
`troubled' areas, he said. "I
saw nothing negative.
"I am not a devout Zionist,"
said Silverstein. "I am
Jewish. I have feelings for
Israel, and I care about what
happens to Israel. America is
my country, but I would love
to go back for another trip
and stay there for three to six
months."
Silverstein is also convinc-
ed that his children would not
be in any danger in visiting
the country. "I wouldn't
hesitate in sending my
children," said Silverstein. "I
grew up and worked in
Detroit for the past 20 years.
All of the time we hear about
kids getting shot in Detroit.
How often do kids get shot in
Israel — where there's a war?
It is safer to walk down the
street in Israel than it is to
walk down the street in
Detroit."
Israel illicited a sense of
pride in Silverstein. "I felt the
same way when I went to see
Washington, D.C.," he said.
"You study American history
all through your school years
and all of a sudden all of it
comes to life. And the same
thing about Israel. You learn

about Israel; it is your
heritage, and you go there,
and it comes to life."
"The most enjoyable thing
I've done this year was going
to Israel," said Silverstein.
"You don't send your loved
ones away to an unsafe place.
I know my children will enjoy
it and hopefully feel that
same sense of pride."- ❑

Teachers
Volunteer

New York — TOVS
(Teachers on Volunteer Ser-
vice), an organization based
in New York City, in associa-
tion with the department of
education and culture of the
WZO, the Israeli Ministry of
Education and ORT, Israel
now has openings for
volunteer teachers to tutor
English for the summer of
1989.
A number of assignments
are presently available in
Jerusalem. Teachers working
in this city have an opportuni-
ty to imbibe the religious,
historical and cultural tradi-
tion which has made the con-
cept of Jerusalem central to
Judaism..
Openings also exist in
Ashkelon. Here, teachers will
be afforded the opportunity to
participate in a new experi-
ment which started in the
summer of 1988, and, at the
same time, enjoy the
pleasures of seaside resort liv-
ing in this lovely town on the
Mediterranean coast.
For information, write to
Ms. Edna D. Gordon, director
of TOVS, department of
education and culture, WZO,
515 Park Avenue, New York,
N.Y. 10022. Enclose a
