n English nearly as fluent as their
native Hebrew, Daniel Cohen of
Givat Ella and Immanuel Miller
of Beit Lechem Haglilit often speak
from the heart as they describe their
choice to spend a year in service to the
Detroit Jewish community.
"Speaking from the heart is our job,"
Cohen said. "We are here to put a face
on everyday life in Israel, to share our
experience and to show how deeply
we are connected, people to people,
Michigan to Israel."
Even in the briefest conversation
with Cohen and Miller, it becomes
clear that they are not just two young
guys from Israel. They are both 18 and
have been chosen from an elite pool
of Israeli youth to defer their service
to the Israeli army in exchange for a
year of community service as Young
Israel Emissaries. The program is
sponsored by the Jewish Agency for
Israel in partnership with the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan Detroit.
Detroit is one of seven communities
in the U.S hosting two of the 26 Young
Emissaries.
"Daniel and Immanuel are here to
help the Federation accomplish a dif-
ficult goal," said Robert Schostak, who
chairs Federation's Israel and Overseas
Department. "The Israel we see in
the news and the Israel our children
study in school can't begin to reflect
the complexity and richness of life
there. Daniel and Immanuel are here
to give voice to that experience, and
to share a meaningful sense of what

Miller and Daniel Cohen

and who Israel is today, particularly in
Federation's Partnership 2000 Region
of the Central Galilee."
Since their arrival at the end of
September, Cohen and Miller esti-
mate that they've met 1,000 students
through their commitment of 40 hours
each week, volunteering at schools
including Hillel Day School, the
Frankel Jewish Academy and Shalom
Street at the Jewish Community Center
in West Bloomfield as well as rotating
through the religious schools in area
congregations.
Cohen and Miller have a signifi-
cant history with the community. In
2002, they were among the first Israeli
children to participate in Federation's
Israeli Camper Program at Camp
Tamarack in Ortonville. Two sum-
mers later, they returned to Tamarack
as junior counselors. In December
2005, they joined Federation's Family
Mission in Israel working as youth
counselors on two of the buses;
last summer they traveled with
Federation's Teen Mission.
Ken Korotkin of Bloomfield Hills is
hosting the young emissaries and likes
to boast about the pair. "Daniel and
Immanuel have excelled as leaders
in all of their past experiences and I
am sure they will continue to impress
everyone they meet," Korotkin said. "As
anyone can see, they are a part of our
Detroit community now. Our connec-
tion and relationships have only just
begun to grow!' L
