Russians Choose
To Tour Israel

Moscow (JTA) — Israel is fast be-
coming one of the most popular
destinations among Russian
tourists.
"A big part of Russian tourists
are those who come to visit rela-
tives in Israel," Yehuda Shen, di-
rector of the Marketing
Operations and Public Relations
Department of the Israel Ministry
of Tourism, said during the an-
/—
nual Moscow International
Tourism and Travel Exhibition.
About 115,000 Russians visit-
ed Israel in 1995, making Russia
the fifth largest source of tourists
to the Jewish state, after the Unit-
ed States, Great Britain, France
and Germany, Mr. Shen said.
More than half of the Russian
tourists are non-Jews, Mr. Shen
said, adding that this number can
be expected to increase.
A 10-day trip from Russia to Is-
rael could cost as little as $800,
including round-trip airfare.
But, Mr. Shen said, "many
Russian tourists in Israel spend
much bigger sums."
He added that about one-tenth
/-
of the Russian tourists are from
the newly wealthy class that
emerged in the wake of Russian
economic reforms.
Among the Israeli travel
agents participating in the
tourism exhibition were some
\ ;ip firms recently established with
the sole purpose of serving Russ-
ian-speaking tourists.
"We serve more than 12,000
Russian-speaking tourists a year,"
said Marina Vorobyova, director
of a travel agency that bears her
name.
She said the recent series of ter-
rorist attacks in Israel were bad
for business.
"We had five groups that
scheduled trips for the end of
March," she said. "None of them
came."

Women Enter
Pilot Course

Jerusalem (JTA) — Seven
women, all of whom passed the
qualifying exams, are scheduled
to take the Israeli air force's pilot
training course.
The seven women are the first
allowed into the course since No-
vember's ruling by the High
1._ Court of Justice, which ordered
the air force to open up its pilot
courses to women.
The army officer who brought
the petition to the court, South
African-born Alice Miller, will not
be among the pilot cadets.
Ms. Miller, a licensed civil pi-
lot with a degree in aeronautical
engineering, failed the prelimi-
nary exam, which she took im-
mediately after the ruling was
issued.
