Cover Story

HARRY KIRSBAUM
Staff Writer

arina Gofman walked down the
path from the beach to lunch. The
sun streaked through the trees on
what most would consider a hot,

stifling day.
But to Marina, 14, of Nazareth Illit in Israel, a
walk through the woods of Tamarack Camps'
Camp Maas in Ortonville was just one part of a

"Everybody who is here is very lucky," she said.
"We had to get used to the camp and the people,
but after a couple of days, we see how perfect this
place is."

this summer away from the violence of the latest
Palestinian intifada (uprising) back home. It was
a safe place where they could be kids again.

Federation canceled this year's Detroit Teen
Mission to Israel. "We decided not to let the situ-
ation keep our Detroit and Israeli youth apart,"
