Nancy Schostak of Franklin handed two
shopping bags to her excited "kids,"
Moran Kelbert, 16, and Hen Kazatsker,
13, both of Migdal HaEmek.
Schostak signed up weeks ago to
sponsor the Israeli girls. Federation sent
letters to Detroiters who had gone on
missions to Israel, asking for volunteers
to send the Israeli kids packages of mag-
azines and other useful camp items and
meet them at camp for a Shabbat serv-
Some adults requested specific
campers if they already knew them, but
otherwise, they were randomly assigned.
Federation invited the sponsors to a
dessert reception at Camp Maas when
both groups of Israelis were still there.
Some 500 people sat on lake-side
bleachers for an hour of speeches and
Schostak's Israeli teens found charm
bracelets, water bottles, belts and maga-
zines in the shopping bags. "We sent
-them packages and we'll send them
mail, because they won't get mail from
Israel in time," said Schostak.
"They seem appreciative and they
want to connect."
Schostak, like most sponsors, will
trade e-mail addresses with the campers

Hen signed up for meditation and
swimming classes. Moran enjoyed
kayaking at camp. "Camp is very fun
— we forget all the violence and all the
terror that happens [at home] when
we're here," said Moran, who had
arrived at camp just a few days before.
Jane Sherman of Franklin worked on
the project for about three months.
"You still get a real pang in your heart,"
said Sherman, who came early to the
camper-sponsor reception. "The meld-
ing between the two groups went so
well, you couldn't tell who was Israeli
and who was American."
The morning after the reception,
Gabi Landau, Jezreel Valley tourism
director, said the kids discovered their
Israeli pride during the event.
"They don't think of being proud
when they live there, they just complain
about the bad things," she said. "But
when you go out, suddenly if you're
Israeli, you're proud of it.
'And yesterday, it made them so
proud to be Israeli. When they saw the
flag and signs in Hebrew, they were
excited, and you wouldn't see them do
that in Israel."
A reunion is planned for the campers
back in Israel on Sept. 15, Landau said.
They will wear their camp T-shirts,
she said, and remember when they
could be kids again.
