Hillel Trip
Gains Steam

RUTH LITTMANN STAFF WRITER

Did you ever Tri-Trippin' in Is-
rael?
About 30 Michigan young
adults will give it a shot this
spring.
Hillel of Metro Detroit, Uni-
versity of Michigan Hillel and
Michigan State University Hil-
lel have collaborated to offer peo-
ple ages 18 to 30 a chance to visit
places like the Dead Sea, Golan
Heights and Yad Vashem.
Dubbed "Tri-Trippin'," the
May 8 to 18 excursion will coin-
cide with the second communi-
ty-wide Michigan Miracle
Mission, to take place May 7 to
17. The two groups (Mission and
Tri-Trippin') will join for Shab-
bat services at the Western Wall.
The theme of Tri-Trippin' is
Jewish identity, said Miriam
Starkman, executive director of
Hillel of Metro Detroit. The
young adults (most of whom
come from the local HMD) will
meet before the trip to discuss
their expectations. Plans are for
participants to describe "what
Judaism is all about to them,"
Ms. Starkman says.
During the trip, the young
adults will river-raft, hike and
rappel. They will visit many fa-
mous landmarks and become ac-
quainted with metro Detroit's
Partnership 2000 sister region,
the Central Galilee.
In accordance with the trip's
theme, the young adults also will
discuss topics relevant to Jewish
-
identity. Topics include: Israel
/—' versus Diaspora Judaism, how
to maintain a Jewish identity in
the Diaspora, and legal issues
pertaining to who is a Jew.
(There are plans to meet with an
Israeli supreme court justice.)
After the journey, the young
adults will reconvene to discuss
ways their Jewish identities have
changed. Ms. Starkman says the
trip, in part, is aimed at gener-
ating new local community lead-
ers. E
