IIII hose with loved ones in Israel pay
particular attention to news of
suicide bombings. Cell phones
have become lifelines of assurance that all
is well there — at least this time.
While security at malls, restaurants,
clubs, hotels and other public venues
have become commonplace in Israel,
most American parents still worry about
their children studying abroad. They
caution them not to ride buses, to phone
home immediately if there's a bombing
and to avoid crowded cafes and clubs.
Israelis living in America understand
more clearly that life goes on, yet still they
worry, too. In Terror's Toll (beginning on
page 16), we examine the high anxiety felt
here when a bombing occurs where loved
ones live halfway across the world.
Uncertainty stirs high anxiety among
local Jews with loved ones in Israel.
