Campaign Close Up:
Helping Out In Israel

MARILYN GRANT

Special to The Jewish News

Editor's note: Through a uni-
que partnership with
American Jewry, Project
Renewal has brought hope
and pride to hundreds of
disadvantaged neighborhoods
in Israel. First in Ramla, then
in Yavne, Detroit contributors
to the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion's Allied Jewish Cam-
paign, through Project
Renewal, have built facilities
and social programs to im-
prove the quality of life.
'd never even think of
living in any other
neighborhood. This is my
home."
Sitting in her modern
apartment, pouring tea to go
with home-baked cookies,
Sara Gulbari could have been
talking about West Bloom-
field or Oak Park.
But the attractive "thin
tysomething" resident of
Yavne, Israel, was describing
her Neot Shazar neighbor-
hood, where a unique Israel-
Detroit partnership has
brought new progress and
pride.
Born in Iran, Sara came
with her family on aliyah in
1956. After a short stay in
Netanya, they heeded the ad-
vice of an earlier immigrant,
Sara's distant cousin Yigal,
and settled in a town on the
northern border.
Years later, Yigal and Sara
fell in love. They married and
moved to Neot Shazar, where
their children were born: first
Sigalit, now 17; Dani, 15;
Ruthi, 12; and Rami, 7.
Their tiny, two-bedroom
apartment could barely sus-
tain the growing family.

.

Then Project Renewal came
along. Through government
loans at low interest, they
were able to enlarge their
apartment by adding two
bedrooms, modernizing the
kitchen and bathroom and ex-
tending the living room.
The Gulbaris are going
through a rough period right
now. Cuts in the Israeli
government social services
budget have forced Sara, a
para-professional, onto the
rolls of the unemployed. But
Yigal hopes that an an-
ticipated spurt in building
will mean overtime for him.
He is a crane operator, and
his skills are in demand.
Meanwhile, the younger

Marilyn Grant is Detroit's
Project Renewal coordinator
in Israel.

in Yavne.

children enjoy the Beit Ezra
Youth Club facilities and lit-
tle Rami uses the computers
and the library, all made
possible by Project Renewal.
Sigalit, who is graduating
from high school this year,
plans to serve in the army
and then pursue studies as a
dental assistant.
Yigal's recently widowed
mother, who is physically
handicapped, visits the Pro-
ject Renewal-supported
Senior Center, thanks to a
new van that picks her up
and brings her home. Ex-
panded activities and
transportation keep her from
"sitting and staring at the
four walls all day," Sara said.
Like other Yavne residents,
the Gulbaris enjoy hosting
Detroit visitors. "Everyone in
Neot Shazar knows about
Detroiters and what they are
doing to help. Having people
in our home is only our small
way of saying thanks." ❑

Journalist Speaks
At JCC

David Grossman, an Israeli
journalist and novelist will
speak at 7:30 p.m. March 26
at the Maple-Drake Jewish
Community Center. His sub-
ject is "The Survivors'
Paradox in the Middle East."
Grossman published inter-
views with Jews and Palesti-
nians in The Yellow Wind, a
book about the conditions of
the Palestinians, their hatred
of Isarelis and the cost of oc-
cupation for both sides.
The program is sponsored
by the B'nai B'rith Hillel-
Foundations of Metropolitan
Detroit and by the Jewish
Community Center.
