SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

Amit Feiglin, a strikingly hand-
some Tel Aviv law student, may
well become Israel's first "un-
derwater lawyer," specializing in
law suits that arise from diving
( accidents. Though hardly com-
mon, there are enough of them in
the United States to keep sever-
al law firms in business, and now
that Israel has 60,000 certified
divers — plus many thousands
of tourists who go there to dive
— there could be room for such a
firm in that country as well.
If so, Mr. Feiglin would be the
right man to set it up after he
gets his law degree. For he is as
knowledgeable about what goes
on underwater as he is about
what goes on in a courtroom.
Unlike most of the other qual-
ified diving instructors in that
country, he is not a former naval
commando. Diving only began for
him after he had spent several
years as an Armored Corps offi-
cer, but he has long since caught
up with the commandos.
Over the years, Mr. Feiglin has
worked as an instructor in the
Red Sea area (Eilat and Sinai),
in Thailand (Kohsamu Island)
and Australia (the Barrier Reef).
While he loves all those places,
he considers the shores of the Red
Sea best of all. There, he points
out, you can walk straight into
the water and reach a good div-
ing site in a matter of minutes,
whereas an hour-long boat trip
is required to reach such a site
/ along the Barrier Reef. Moreover,
underwater visibility here (about
40 meters) is much better, for ex-
ample, than in Thailand (about
five meters).
Mr. Feiglin can teach diving
equally well in English and He-
brew and has done so in many
places. But in Thailand, strange-
ly enough, Hebrew turned out to
be more important than English.
This is because there are thou-
sands of young Israelis wander-
ing around the country and when
they learned that there was a
Hebrew-speaking instructor at
one of the diving schools, many
of them signed up for lessons.
He does have a problem that
other instructors don't have; he
is Orthodox, which means that
he won't work on Saturday —
when there are customers galore.
But he gets jobs anyway.
Also, of course, finding kosher
food in Kohsamu Island or along
the Barrier Reef is no easy mat-
ter. His solution: sticking to a veg-
etarian diet and, when absolutely
necessary, "compromising a lit-
tle." ❑
