"Interfaith Couples Mis-
sion" to Israel this June, host-
ed by Mark and Sally Isaacs of

Simtat Plonit and you'll
be experiencing a bit of Detroit
history.

recounts this story of ,

stucco lion "which

said she was sorry for her re-

In a letter describing the trip,
the UJA says of this new pro-

represents a sector that cannot
be ignored today. Our need to

make a partnership between
the federations, synagogues,
and community institutions to
achieve this goal."
