The only
thing Israelis
would add to
their Subarus
would be a
Dwyer price!

Subaru is Israel's most popular,
depend able car. And for good reason.
It delivers comfort, control and
economy ... at a reasonable price.
That's why it also retains so much of
its value at trade-in time.
Navigate the streets of Southfield
and the byways of Bloomfield
Hills...and get a feel for why Subaru
excels in the Holy Land and beyond.

A Yeshiva Fights
To Reclaim Jerusalem

JENNIFER FINER JEWISH NEWS INTERN

epresentatives from a
yeshiva located in the
Muslim Quarter of
Jerusalem told a handful
of Detroiters that now is a cru-
cial stage for Israel.
"The
1967 battle for
Jerusalem is still going on," said
Yossi Baumol, the executive di-
rector of the yeshiva, Ateret Co-
hanim.
Mr. Baumol and Chana
Johnson, the public relations
and archives officer for the
yeshiva, spoke Monday night
at a parlor meeting hosted by
Southfield residents Jay and
Paula Novetsky.
They want to educate Amer-
icans on the history of
Jerusalem, discuss why they
think a Jewish presence in the
old city is so important and
raise money for the yeshiva.
"I don't think people are
aware there was a Jewish ma-
jority in east Jerusalem before

the State of Israel was ever
founded," Mr. Baumol said.
In an interview, Mr. Baumol
said he would like to see peace
in the Middle East not through
land but by establishing a
strong Jewish presence and
showing the Arabs: "We're here
to stay. Then they wouldn't
have to prove they support
Arafat. We're not going away to
pacify the area.
"We teach coexistence with
the Arabs. We know where we
are and we're sensitive to the
people around us."
In 1978, Ateret Cohanim was
founded by a group of yeshiva
students who wanted to
reestablish a Jewish presence
in the Muslim Quarter.
The Old City is divided into
Jewish, Muslim, Christian and
Armenian quarters.
Six rabbis and 150 men
study at the Ateret Cohanim,
