Romania, other countries.
There will be a Russian
delegation in Israel for the
first time, and Romania sent
a delegation to the Chicago
Youth Maccabi last year.
"Having the Russians come
to Detroit would be a com-
plete surprise," but Robinson
is hopeful. "I have absolute-
ly no idea of what it takes, ad-
ministratively or
diplomatically, to get them
here, but I do hope to talk
with them. That would be
fantastic" if the Soviet Jews
came.
The Youth Maccabi will be
in August, 1990, at the
Maple-Drake Jewish Com-
munity Center and other
area sites.

return to the Motor City next
summer for the first time
since the second Youth Mac-
cabi brought 800 athletes
here in 1984.'
His aim will be to en-
courage more European
teams — including the Soviet
Union — to come and compete
in Detroit in 1990, when
2,200 Jewish athletes ages
13-16 are expected.
Robinson will give a formal
presentation on July 5 at
K'far HaMaccabiah in Tel
Aviv, headquarters of the
Maccabiah Games, to delega-
tion heads from all over the
world, inviting them to
Detroit.
In addition, a five-foot-tall
display, featuring photos of
metro Detroit and Youth Mac-
cabi competitions, plus infor-
mation on the 1990 Maccabi
in English, Hebrew and
Spanish, will be displayed
throughout the Games in the
world headquarters lobby.
"There'll be about 400-450
foreign delegates there," said
Robinson, general chairman
of the 1990 Maccabiah. "We'll
be making a big push.
"We've always had good
representation from South
and Central America, Israel
and Australia, but we've
never had much participation
from European delegations.
"We expect to make gains
in that area — Germany,
