the mission, security will be tight and on
every bus, said Alter. Most buses are
congregation based but organizations
like Hadassah, AIPAC and Federation's
Young Adult Division also are planning
a large number of participants.
Allan Nachman of Bloomfield Hills
said the feeling of community on the
mission is "wonderful." He's a former
Teen Mission chairman.
"When you get to meet people in the
community who you didn't know
before, you share some interesting expe-
riences," said Nachman. "When you
leave, you're all a cohesive community."
You will make friends in this commu-

Lawrence Jackier, Federation president.
"You will feel so good about being
Jewish, about being in this community
and about having the opportunity to go
to Israel together, 800 strong."
