friends," said a friend of his
from Zagreb, Croatia. "We
don't travel to Belgrade, so
Jakov and I don't see each
other back home.
"It is odd for us to hear so
much about anti-Semitism
from the other participants,
and in the workshops, be-
cause there is no anti-
Semitism in Yugoslavia,"
said the young woman from
Zagreb.
"We are also not concerned
with the threat of assimila-
tion, she continued. "The
fact is, perhaps 80 percent of
Yugoslav Jews are already
intermarried.
"What concerns us as Jew-
ish students is Jewish edu-
cation. We know very little
about Jewish customs and
laws. Many of us would like
to lead a traditional Jewish
life, but we don't know how.
"It would be wonderful if a
rabbi would come and live in
Zagreb," she said.
"So far, this conference
has been a real eye-opener,"
said Rinat Levy, an Israeli
graduate student at the
Hebrew University. "It's
been great to hear the con-
cerns and goals of Jewish
students in the Diaspora."
Ms. Levy, a communica-
tions student, said she would
like to see "more contact
between Israelis and
Diaspora Jews. The Israeli
students have a lot to teach
the others about what it's
like to live in Israel and
serve in the army. We grow
up with a great deal of Jew-
ish pride.
"On .the other hand, for-
eign students can teach the
Israelis a lot about student
activism," said Ms. Levy.
"In Israel, the student
union concerns itself with
everyday needs: tuition,
housing, the price of books.
Abroad, the students deal
with assimilation and other
real issues.
"We have a lot to teach
each other," she said.
