the board of the Zionist
Organization of America, is
attending his first Assembly.
He said the American Jewish
economic involvement with
Israel needs to change.
"There's a new realization
that buying bonds and
philanthropy are fine. But
Israel now needs, in addition,
American Jews to invest and
use their expertise to develop
high-tech industries. This
will be a magnetic force to at-
tract olim from all over the
world, including the United
States," he said.
Silverman is working on
creating a vocational school
in Israel to train carpenters to
built American-style homes.
The result would be greater
employment and less
dependence on Arab labor,
Silverman said.
The Assembly opened in
the shadow of the continuing
intifada. Said Silverman,
"For me, this is a continua-
tion of a struggle that's been
going on for 40 years. The
media have reversed the
David and Goliath roles by
portraying this as an Israeli-
Palestinian war and not an
Arab-Israeli war. Our job is
clear: to put the roles in their
true perspective."
"I place Israel in a better
position than in the summer
of 1988, tourism-wise," Sher-
man said. "The fact that
Israel was off the front pages
for a month because of China
helped. There are difficulties.
But you're safer here than in
any place in Detroit."
Sherman says she had to
curtail some of her
movements around the ter-
ritories, but that there is no
reason American Jews
shouldn't come to Israel this
summer.
"I get in a hotel elevator
and its filled with Japanese
tourists. That's great," Sher-
man said. "I'd also like to get
into an elevator filled with
American Jews."
