Worwrf6 \7iw of 16raf41

eoffrey Weill, director of the
American Jewish Congress'
international travel pro-
gram, says there are many rea-
sons behind the two-week "Israel
... A Women's View" tours offered
by the AJCongress.
`These trips evolved, first and
foremost, because of AJCongress'
longtime commitment to Jewish
feminism," Mr. Weill said. "But
the Women's View' concept
has unintentionally helped
us remedy a predicament.
"Because the number of
single women traveling
anywhere in the world in-
variably outweighs the
number of single men, at-
tempts to organize tours for
single travelers, particu-
larly the upper-age groups,
almost always result in
groups made up entirely,
or almost entirely, of
women.
"The Women's View,'
with its legitimate concen-
tration on subjects of spe-
cial interest to American
Jewish women, transforms
a negative experience into
a positive one."

Besides a "traditional" tour of
Israel, the "Women's View" in-
cludes visits with Israeli women
and exposure to women's issues
in the country.
Remaining departures this
year are set for Aug. 14, Oct. 9
and Nov. 6. Next year, they are
March 5, May 21, July 2, Aug. 13
and Oct. 22. For information, call
