Ofra and Sam Fisher

Mrs. Fisher, 52, said she
will remain in her AJE posi-
tion through the end of this
year "to help find someone
excellent for the agency."
"Mostly, I will be finishing
up certain things and not
just leaving everything as
is," Mrs. Fisher said. "I owe
it to the agency. They have
been fair and honest, and in
the last four years we have
worked well together."
Mrs. Fisher said she is
looking for a job that is less
demanding and more flexi-
ble so she can spend more
time traveling with her hus-
band and visiting Israel,
where the Fishers' two
daughters reside.
The Fishers always
planned on returning to
Israel. Mr. Fisher's new job,
Mrs. Fisher said, "has the
potential to get us back to
Israel sooner. We will wait
and see what happens, but
the potential is there.
"Both of us have mixed
feelings," Mrs. Fisher said.
"We like Detroit and think
it is one of the best com-
munities. Sam sees this as a
great challenge. Sam knows
the system of BBYO and
thinks it is something he can
contribute to."
Mr. Fisher did not respond
to numerous phone calls.
Richard Komer, Fresh Air
Society president, declined
to discuss plans to replace
Mr. Fisher.
"The agency has grown
under his direction, and we
will miss his leadership,"
said Fresh Air Society Vice
President Pola Friedman.
Before coming to Detroit,
Mr. Fisher was BBYO's di-
rector of overseas programs,
where he directed and
supervised BBYO functions

in Israel, Great Britain,
Europe and Central
America. He had been ap-
proached by BBYO several
months ago, but had turned
down the job offer.
Previously, he was the ex-
ecutive director of the Israeli
Boy and Girl Scouts
In Israel, Mrs. Fisher was
the national director of ser-
vice for the Ministry of
Labor and Welfare.
"Their leaving is a loss for
the community," said Bob
Aronson, executive vice
president for the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan
Detroit. "They leave behind
an important legacy. Sam
brought camp into the 21st
century, including a major
Jewish component and new
business approaches.
"Ofra greatly expanded
the scope of United Hebrew
Schools, which became the
Agency for Jewish Edu-
cation and pointed the agen-
cy in a new direction which
will pay off in the future,"
Mr. Aronson said. "We will
find new people; and we will
be fine, but we will miss both
of them."
Neal Zalenko, Agency for
Jewish Education president,
said the executive com-
mittee will meet in the com-
ing month to discuss laun-
ching a search to replace
Mrs. Fisher.
"Ofra has done a spec-
tacular job," Mr. Zalenko
said. "Her departure will
mark a void, but the agency
has gone on for 75 years and
will survive.
"In the midst of pressure
within our agency, which is
going through a transition,
we still have 800 students
and an ongoing enterprise,"
Mr. Zalenko said.
