The Miracle Mission
ad Its Share Of Surprises

he return by most of
the 1,284 people sig-
naled big sighs of
relief.
They were from local area
restaurateurs and restaurant
employees along with those of
other operations.
Big welcome mats were put
out for so many of their
customers who had gone on
the Michigan Miracle Mis-
sion to Isreal by Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan
Detroit and The Jewish News.
Rosalie Schussel had called
hubby Mark from Jerusalem
shortly after the Mission ar-
rived in Israel . . . "It's killing
our business!" the recep-
tionist at Beau Jack's on
Telegraph told him.
"I hope everyone had a good
time," said Angelis
Anastasiou of American Inn
on Middlebelt in Livonia.
"We sure felt it with them
gone!"
Bob Silverman of Silver-
man's on Orchard Lake Road
simply shook his head when
the Mission returned and
said, "Thank Heavens they're
back!" . . . Kelly Eter at
Modern Deli on Greenfield in
Oak Park moaned, "Please
don't do this too often!"
This was indicative of the
feelings by area eatery folks
who can now point to
business as usual . . . Some of
the MMM members stayed on
to visit more of Israel but the
majority are back.
However, restaurateurs and
shopkeepers in Israel were as
happy as Meier Swed, whose
little shop at 10 Ben Yehuda
Street in Jerusalem was a
popular souvenir stop for
many Mission-ites.
It had been a slightly gruel-
ing but very fruitful and
enlightening 10-day mission
for everyone who went .. .
Those like me visiting Israel
for the first time, were in awe
at the beauty, ingenious ways
of the Israeli people and their
progress-minded ideals . . .
Jewish Federation had
achieved an important goal
. . to make people more
aware of Israel, its people
andmagnificent accomplish-
ments among other things.
Joe Deutch giving out cards
at the all-you-can-eat buffet
breakfast in the Jerusalem
Renaissance Hotel, one of
three used by Federation
(Hilton and Hyatt): "No
Seconds Today. Remember

Your Diet" . . . Ben Kosins
with an infected vein, taken
from the hotel to Hadassah
Hospital the first day and re-
maining there until the
10-day tour was over . . . 26th
visit to Israel for Sid Silver-
man . . . If wife Lil would fly
they'd live in Israel six
months and the United
States the other time.
What a thrill for Dr. Max
Warren as the huge Michigan
contingent sang "Happy Bir-
thday" to him before
ceremonies at the newly
excavated Southern Wall ...
Ann and Jack Torf celebrat-
ing their 45th anniversary
with a fifth visit to Israel ...
Oscar Band at Lake
Kenneret trapped in a small
washroom compartment ...
Nobody could get him out, not
even with a crowbar . . .
Finally Harold Rossin to the
rescue, crawling through a
tight openirig and eventually
forcing the door open to get
out a frightened Oscar.
Any test of stamina and en-
durance was far exceeded by
the power that is Israel and
what it had gone through to
be the wonderful country it is
today . . . something of which
every Jew in the world can be
proud . . . Being in a car acci-
dent and recovering from 17
fractures didn't stop Bunnie
Leach, who walked with the
aid of a cane . . . or Velma
Weil who had fallen and
trekked with a forearm and
hand cane after a hip replace-
ment operation . . . Bunnie
and Bob Leach and Velma
and Bill Weil kept up with
everyone.
Bunnie was also visited in
their room by a doctor who
gave her a prescription to
reduce swelling . . . She came
to breakfast and hadn't had
the script filled yet . . . "Don't
worry," said Joel Shapiro, "my
wife is a walking drugstore.
She'll have one" . . . Laurie
came down and, sure enough,
had a pill for Bunnie.
Ruth Ziporin at Shabbat
dinner selected fresh fruit for
dessert and got just that (ap-
ple and orange) instead of the
fruit cup she expected . . .
Ruth and Ery finally did get
a fresh fruit cup at LaTerrasee
Restaurant . . . While on the
bus leaving Givat Washing-
ton Youth Aliyah Village, peo-
ple told of their experience at
the school . . . Yona Friedman
related about one of the

young Ethiopian girls asking
if she was Jewish . . . When
Yona said yes, the lassie in
her limited English asked,
"Then why do you not live in
Israel?"
Mark Plotkin was an usher
at the wedding of Sally and
Nate Saginaw 46 years ago
. . . Sally and Nate and Marc
and Lu were on the same trip
to Israel . . . Paulette Koffron
didn't know her mom and
dad, Marion and Jay Grant,
were also on the MMM .. .
When finding out, she and
hubby Bob made a quick
beeline to the hotel phone .. .
"It's amazing," said Larry
Warren, "to look up every day
and see so many familiar
faces."
At the Valley of the
Destroyed Communities, a
Yad Vashem memorial,
Holocaust survivor Allen
Charlupski found the name of
his little community in
Poland on the walls of the
stone . . . Of the town's 7,000
Jews, only between 250 and
500 were left after the

<

The food was
good, plentiful
. . . and
unexpected.

Holocaust . . . Brother-in-law
Julius Schaumberg escaped
from a concentration camp
. . . Both married sisters .. .
Allen wed Franka and Julius
said "I Do" with Rosa . . . All
four were on the Mission .. .
The town of Henry Dorfman
and Larry Wayne — Lodz —
was among Poland's largest
. . . Henry and Mala and
Larry and Marilyn were also
on the MMM.
Some 86 accompanied Rab-
bi Irwin Groner of Congrega-
tion Shaarey Zedek, in-
cluding five past presidents
. . . Dave Hermelin, Myron
Milgrom, Harvey Weisberg,
Yale Levin and Irving Laker
. . . plus present prez Wally
Handler and veep Allan
Schwartz.
Miracle Mission members
had dinner at residents'
homes in Yavne, Detroit's Pro-
ject Renewal Neighborhood
. . . Idarose and Harry
Newman were with Frieda
and me at the apartment of
Zipora and Shalom Ben-
