They all have

nuts and bolts.

And wings.

And seats.

But do they

all have pilots

trained by the

Israeli Air Force?

The best

Kosher cuisine?

The most

nonstops to Israel?

The best business

class to Israel?

37 destinations

from Israel?

A history of

bringing

immigrants from

all over the

Saving Plan Helps
Teens Get To Israel

Detroit's Jewish communi-
ty offers a variety of oppor-
tunities to visit Israel — for
travel, work or study — and
many ways to obtain scholar-
ships to get there.
Under the auspices of the
Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit, the
Israel Desk's Center for Israel
Scholarships offers informa-
tion on travel to Israel and
where to obtain assistance.
Scholarships are generally
available from congregations,
community and youth groups
and national organizations.
In addition, a special sav-
ings plan helps youth and
their families put funds aside
for an Israel experience. The
Ben Teitel Israel Incentive
Savings Club, a joint commit-
ment between students'
families and the community,
encourages teen-agers to visit

Israel on organized educa-
tional trips. Participants also
must continue their formal
Jewish educational programs
here at home.
Students in the fifth grade
at Detroit area Jewish schools
are eligible. The plan provides
$100 for each year a student
at an approved Detroit Jewish
day, Sunday or afternoon
school saves $150 toward
Israel travel-study. To receive
matching funds, students
must participate in the plan
for at least four years. Up to
$700 in matching funds may
be received for the cost of an
educational trip to Israel.

For information about
scholarships or the Ben Teitel
Israel Incentive Savings Club,
call Sivan Maas, community
schlicha at the Israel Desk,
661-5440.
