UJA Missions To Israel:
A Very Good Way To Go

Travelers to Israel can't
miss on a mission! Arranged
nationally by the United
Jewish Appeal, with local
sponsorship by the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan
Detroit, missions provide
visitors to Israel with the op-
portunity to know the Jewish
state from many perspectives:
social, religious, historical,
geographical and political.
Meetings with native
Israelis, immigrants from the
Soviet Union, Ethiopia and
other countries give visitors a
taste of the many cultures
that make up Israel society.
Judaism's survival through
the centuries is seen at an-
cient synagogues and at the
Western Wall, while Masada
and Yad Vashem recall
episodes from Jewish history.
Bus tours of the land, from
Eilat in the south to Safed in
the north, point out the varie-
ty of the Israel landscape,
from desert and mountains to
lush green kibbutzim and
sprawling cities.
Israel's proximity to the
Arab world can be seen by bus
along the Israel-Egypt border
at Taba, or by viewing the
mountains of Jordan and
Saudi Arabia from a cruise in
the Gulf of Eilat. A tank
demonstration or a talk by a
military hero remind tra-
velers about Israel's defense
needs.
While in Israel, visitors can
see Allied Jewish Campaign-
funded programs, such as ab-
sorption centers for new im-
migrants, Detroit's Project
Renewal cities of Yavne and
Ramla, a home for elderly
persons and schools.
Singles who participate in
the annual National Summer
Singles Mission can meet
other singles from the U.S.

and Israel during meals, par-
ties and sight-seeing trips.
Supervised children's ac-
tivities are included in fami-
ly missions. Detroiters will
participate in the Winter
Family Mission Dec. 22-Jan.
1.
UJA also offers specialized
missions, such as the recent
Spain-Israel, physicians, den-
tists and presidents trips.

Otzma Provides
Two-Way Experience

Detroit is looking for
college-age young adults to
send next summer as its
seventh annual delegation to
Project Otzma, a volunteer
service program in Israel.
Participants in Otzma
(Hebrew for strength) spend a
year working and studying in
Israel. On their return, they
will fulfill a commitment of
service to the Detroit Jewish
community.
Project Otzma is ad-
ministered through the Israel
Desk of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Metropolitan Detroit,
and funded in part by United
Jewish Charities.
Otzma participants learn
about Israel's history,
language, culture and life-
style. They deepen their
understanding through con-
tact with peers and "adop-
tion" by selected Israeli
families.
The young adults live on a
kibbutz for three months,
dividing their time between
intensive language study
(ulpan) and working in
whatever area they are
needed.

Afterward, they tutor and
work with Israeli and im-
migrant teens for six weeks at
a Youth Aliyah village. They
can choose a two-week stay as
volunteers on an army base.
Participants also spend six
weeks on a new, small kibbutz
or moshav in the Arava
desert.
The program concludes
with a three-month residency
working on community pro-
jects in Detroit's Project
Renewal neighborhood in
Yavne. By this time, they are
able to become a part of an
Israeli community, using
language and cultural skills
learned during the year.
Participants on Otzma VI,
the group currently in Israel,
include: Craig Goldsmith of
Bloomfield Hills, Bonnie Hof-
fer of Southfield, Emily
Holzman of West Bloomfield,
Stephen Kuperberg of Por-
tage, Jeffrey Schlussel of
Southfield, P'ninah Stein of
Birmingham, and Melissa
Vainik of West Bloomfield.
In addition, three delegates
from out of state who attend-
ed Michigan universities are
included in the group. They
are: Amy Feldman of Wood-
bridge, Conn.; Russell Kahn
of Pamona, N.Y.; and Jay Tap-
per of Pepper Pike, Ohio.
Sponsored by the Israel
Forum and the Council of
Jewish Federations, Project
Otzma is cosponsored by the
World Zionist Organization,
the Jewish Agency for Israel
and the World Zionist
Organization, the Jewish
Agency for Israel and the
World Zionist Organization. <
Applications are now
available for the next one-
year fellowship, which begins
in July 1992.

ject Otzma, contact Sivan
Maas at the Israel Desk,
