T o be abroad for one year can be a bitter-sweet experience. You are constantly aware

o f the flight o f days - so much to taste and too little time!

You are caught between

the demands o f studies and the lure o f the country. Lacking adequate Hebrew and a healthy

streak o f ‘hutzpah’, you find yourself forever perched on the outer fringe o f Israeli society.

An interview with Israel Roi, the Vice-Provost o f the Rothberg School for Overseas Students.

Secretaries rush around, Israel Roi comes in and out again occupied with other duties.

Our interview begins when he does finally sit down, then an overwhelmingly cooperative

and friendly atmosphere develops from the conversation. . . .

Q. What are the responsibilities o f the Vice-Provost o f the School?

A .

The Rothberg School, being an independent part o f the Hebrew University, also has

its own administration, the head o f which is the Provost. During his present annual

absence, I am largely responsible for the academic program (selection o f the courses,

students and staff), student affairs (dormitories and Madrichim), financial affairs.

Q. Could you explain the history o f the One Year Program?

A . In 1955, the history o f the One Year Program begins. In that year, 20-30 students of

Hebrew Teacher Colleges expanded the popular American idea o f “ Junior Year Abroad” .

In 1966, the School already had 160 students, and its administration was still under

the supervision o f the Dean o f Students Office. It was in 1970-71 that the School

achieved independence and moved to Mt. Scopus, which had, only after the Six-Day-

War, again become accessible to Israel. The students are divided into two clearly separate

programs: O YP and Mechina. The Summer Ulpan also serves many hundreds o f

students preparing themselves for regular studies. Summer Courses were also integrated

into the School. When the School was established, the academic program comprised

o f a comparatively large selection o f courses in the humanities, and social sciences,

such as History o f Greece, History and Culture o f China etc. Due to the obvious lack of

interest, the choice has been reduced to a small number o f general courses required

by students, the main field being psychology. A t the same time, more than 40% o f

the student body take at least one regular course in

the regular course in the regular program in one o f

the Faculties, where their Hebrew language proficiency

permits this.

Q. Can you describe the student body in terms o f its

origin and academic interests?

A. The One Year Program student body (550 this year)

is composed o f about 75% o f students from the US,

15% from Canada and the other 10% mainly German

and a few French students. The strongest represented

universities this year are the University o f California,

Y ork University in Toronto and Brandeis. The proportion

between male and female students is also

interesting: an obvious overpresentation o f w om en -


70% last year! I explain this phenomenon two ways: women tend to prefer the humanities

and social sciences, and, secondly, it seems that women are less career-oriented,

which permits them to follow their daring adventurism without being unduly worried

about Graduate School.

A large segment o f the student body take their major in Judaic Studies or Political

Science. Individual students are also permitted to continue a scientific career. They

join the regular laboratory classes, having a special tutor. The last years have witnessed

a remarkable increase in the number o f graduate students. Today, almost a quarter

are visiting students who have their BA degree or graduate students who are registered

for a master’s or doctorate degree.

How is the School financed?

On principle the School should be self sufficient but this is rarely possible in Higher

Education. Our income comes basically from three sources:

a. The students.

The whole year costs the student or his parents approximately $6,000 which

will, due to inflation, increase next year. About a third o f this is for tuition

and service fees, the rest for dorms, living expenses and travel. Several large

organizations provide scholarship assistance to support and encourage students

who could otherwise not afford to come. For example, the Canadian and Am erican

Friends o f the Hebrew University have Student Aid Funds which offer both

grants and loans amounting in special cases up to $2,000.

b. Subsidies

The School is indirectly subsidized by the Government whose Student Authority

pays tuition fees for 75% o f the students in the Mechina, the Preparatory Year

Program, who are here as “ Temporary Residents” or “ Potential Olim ” . Most o f

them will next year be regular students at this university.

c. General funding and support systems

Thus, the Jewish Agency has promised scholarship assistance for the coming

year, 1983-84, and the Student Authority is very generous in subsidising seminars

and study-tours.

What is the purpose and the effect o f the OYP?

The program is offerred to meet the academic interests and requirements o f students

from abroad. It provides for many students an academic introduction to Judaism and

Israel, that often leads to the strengthening o f Jewish identity. In addition to an

intellectual confrontation, this is basically to be achieved through human connections.

Thus, two natural meeting points with Israelis are incorporated into the program: the

dormitories and classrooms. For that reason, participation in the regular studies is

highly encouraged. A greater degree o f integration could certainly be achieved by

spreading the individual classes all over campus, which we are trying to do. This however,

is severely limited by the amount o f space and the priority o f rooms that each

faculty has in its “ ow n” building. Afterwards? A significant number o f former OYP

students become Student Representatives on their home campuses, or get involved in

Jewish Organizations - t or come back to do graduate work or even, — in some cases to

make their homes in Israel.

Interviewer: Maren N eihoff


When attempting to view this year in perspective, one soon realizes that the experience

o f studying in Israel is an amalgamation o f tangible and intangible links that form an holistic

chain. Jerusalem and its university are symbols o f these indivisible links.

T o capture the essence o f these individual links and the chain in its entirety is, perhaps,

an impossible task. Prophets, poets, travellers and theologians alike have been consumed

by this awesome challenge for as long as Jerusalem has existed. This Yearbook is part o f

that heritage. Its editors and contributors have made their attempt to grasp the intangible

and focus on the tangibles that are the true substance o f their experience at the Hebrew

University o f Jerusalem. This volume represents a tangible link in this historical chain and,

in years to come, may serve as an essential tool for forming even stronger bonds between

you and both the tangibles and intangibles that are synomymous with Jerusalem.

Sometime in the future, each o f you will have to grapple with seeking a definition

for your personal bond to Jerusalem and all it symbolizes. It is my hope that the tools we

have provided you with and the opportunities we have offered you will, in some small way,

help you to forge your own link in this eternal chain.

D o n ’t think that it has all been easy! Strikes, D ec em ber Blues,

As powerful as the voice o f G-d m y microscopic alarm clock rings. I waken abruptly, only again

to crash my head down the pillow and close my eyes. This initiates the daily boxing

match that occurs inside my tired mind each morning I try to wake up for Ulpan. "N o, I

don’t want to go - I ’m already tired of: ".tino d’ aü ,n:pn ’ nw" nn idVjb/"

That conversation just shouldn’t be repeated more than 50 times, even though the whole

class is either sleeping or writing aerograms. O f course my conscience replies, "But you have

to learn to speak Hebrew, how else will you be able to bargain in the shuk? ’’ Just to end the

round I drag myself out o f bed, grab towel, soap and shampoo, and practically sleep walk

towards the shower. I tip toe through the permanent flood on the bathroom floor, and

because I ’m still asleep, forget to prepare myself emotionally for the water. The frigid

temperature shocks me back into reality “ G ood morning, you Ye in Israel’ o f course there

is no hot water. I stay in as long as I can bear it, throw on whatever is accessible in my

cabinet, and trying to avoid any stray cat in my way, I attempt to run for the bus that is

beginning to pull away. I climb on the bus, or to be more exact am pushed onto the bus

by masses o f students who seem as enthused as I am. I hear faint cries o f Bagela — Chocol,

Chocol, and I go to whip out my fresh tmno. I glance at my watch, almost 8 a jn. and

realize this is the last bus from Shikunei HaElef. I f I had missed it I would have had a quite a trek

(or a lucky tramp) across campus. The bus is absolutely packed; people are sitting and standing

in the aisle, I ’m practically leaning on the door and when the bus driver opens it to

attempt to let on more passengers I dream about how nice, even though hard as a rock, my

bed felt. I ’m already counting the minutes until nposm. O f course I had planned on

doing my homework on the bus, but there isn’t even room to open my workbook. As the

8 a.m. news beeps go o ff — so starts another day in the life o f a tired Ulpan student.

American students felt particularly vulnerable to ambiguous opinions and emotions concerning

the war in Lebanon. With media reports from Washington blatantly giving signals o f dissatisfaction

with -Israeli policy and trying to appease the Arab nations in which top officials

o f U.S. government held significant stock, we were forced with a conflict in our own minds

about whom to trust and what to believe in. We had to re-evaluate our connection with

America, and come to terms with how deeply we were to choose our affinity with Israel.

Although the summer was filled with many opportunities for fun, the reality that the

country We had planned a year o f study in was also a country in the midst o f war — a war

unlike any in, the history o f the nation, veiled our initial excitement with frustration. Operation

Peate m r Galilee did not last six days; it lingered and threatened and called to our

attention, whether we wanted to know o f it or not, that the most important thing in life

was not what place to vacation to next weekend, but rather plain and simply, what survival

meant and how were we to accept that adjustment. The following headlines were photocopied

from the Jerusalem Post during the short span o f July 27 through August 30.

There was no way I could have known what to expect. I had far too little knowledge

o f Israel — her people, language and culture. A ll I remember o f that bus ride from the airp

o rt to Givat Ram, July 27th, was that I spoke not one word. Being completely overwhelmed

by the sights surrounding me and the thoughts that raced through my mind (like

an Egged bus through the West Bank), I was unable to even form words. To try and express

all that was whirling in my mind was impossible. I was in shock; the impact o f the reality

that I was in Israel had no effect on me. I just didn’t know how to comprehend the situation.

I sat with people who pointed out this and that to me, while explaining their views

about Israel and describing their past experiences. A ll I could do was absorb, take in everything

that was going on around me. The beauty o f the country, plus the historical and

religious aspects began also to affect me, then. To try and understand the complete scope

would have been impossible at that time. I was awed, amazed, excited, anxious and especially

intrigued. One year —sure, it sounded like a long time when I was back in the States and

deciding to go away. B ut when one tries to see all there is to see, to do, feel, and experience

beyond any lim it, it is too short a time. To learn and to grow in this country, a year is not


I didn’t know what to expect on that memorable bus ride, and even now I still d on ’t.

Each new day may bring new friends, new good terms and may stir up new emotions.

There is just so much to think about; and to be able to sift through everything that flows

into my mind is a difficult task. A task maybe even harder than having to tear myself away

from this country as June ’83 drifts into the past.

He suddenly noticed that outside it was brighter than he had ever experienced the daytime before.

In New York the colors always seemed so dull and dingy while here in Jerusalem - no, all o f Israel the

buildings shone brightly in the reflection o f the sun’s rays and there was no feeling o f crampedness or

decay. Which was strange, being that the ruins o f New York were but mere infants in comparison to the

ancient edifices of Jerusalem and elsewhere.

He could have waxed philosophical or theological on the subject —that is: the light o f the Almighty

shone brighter here than anywhere else, or finally the ingathering of exiles brought light to the dark and

perilous dispersion. No, he simply recalled the law concerning the building o f Jerusalem architecture, how

they could only be made o f Jerusalem stone, so white and reflective o f light. Had these same structures

been carved out o f the red, dull brick o f New York, why the bright sun would really be dull after all,

wouldn’t it?

There must be some reason for this special feeling o f mine. He finally identified the problem. For

those more sure in belief, whether it be Mount Sinai, Herzl or Marx, the answers come easier. As for me,

he said to himself, the solution is more obscure.

Remember the first time you

M t a t e » * f

In the pain o f night, red almost like a rose,

A moist soul spills out over the evening air.

Piercing shrieks drift o ff into the numbed silence o f a battle's mist,

Destined to be forgotten, but never silenced.

The Hero

Alone, cold and nearly spent,

The soul reaches into the depth o f distant memory.

Images dance freely for the final time

And then go blank like countless pages in an empty, white book.

V ictory declared, the objective achieved,

Papers flash news o f the event,

The clash,

The politics,

The war.

And yes, the war.

The war: Conducted from the depths o f a concrete bunker

Or way up high on the wings o f a mechanical bird.

Fought for gain and glory, politics and survival —

Reduced later to one more page in the history text o f time.

Back home to city parades and business — as usual,

Modern man beats the pavement, convinced o f his shiny new image.

While unnoticed the nemesis - in truth Man himself —

Lies like a leopard in wait, ready to pounce once again.

Another also waits (this one alone) praying an unfinished prayer.

The mother stands vigil, broken, at the window.

Hoping yet hopeless, she cries for her son,

Another hero for another generation.

September 25, 1982: 10 percent o f Israel’s entire population joined in a single act of

anguish and frustration. A crowd estimated at 400,000 people poured into the Square of

the Kings o f Israel for the largest peace demonstration in the nation’s history. We had come

to mourn for victims o f the massacre in West Beirut. And we had come to chant for the

resignation o f the Israeli Prime Minister, Menachem Begin.

September 25 . . . a full week after the Sabra and Shatila massacre. In Israel and in the

Territories it was a week marked by mourning, strikes, protests, curfews, international

outcry . . . A week ending with 150 Arabs arrested and 39 injured, resulting from numerous

violent clashes between Arab residents from the Galilee, Triangle and the Negev, and Israeli

police. i i -

Meanwhile, many Jews, within Israel and around the world, were too busy disclaiming

Israeli responsibility and pointing out the “ Scratch the surface” antisemitism, to express

any human compassion for the tragedy.

For me, the whole episode seemed painfully parallel to the Jewish experience - to my

own experience o f growing up with the Holocaust. My non-Jewish friends could never enter

into the depth o f sorrow and grief which I felt over the Holocaust. The knowledge that I

would have been in those camps, had I been the right age in the right location, prevented

an equal perception o f the experience. N ow , as I sat with my Palestinian friends, in grief, m

solidarity, I realized that I could never experience the depth o f their suffering. . . the people

o f Sabra and Shatila were their relatives. But more than this - the Palestinians are learning,

as the Jews did, not to trust anyone but their own people.

September 25, a full week after the massacre, and the shock o f the tragedy had grown

more immense. Each day, more information surfaced indicating at least partial Israeli

responsibility for the massacre. Hostilities were fueled by Begin’s continuous refusal to call

for a judicial inquiry.

Although the demonstration was organized as an obvious political tool by the Labour

Party, it served its purpose. It allowed people world over to see that “ Israel is not Begin ,

and Begin was eventually forced into calling for a Commission o f Inquiry.

What impressed me was not only the general orderliness o f the protestors, but then-

demographic characteristics as well. Old and young together; children with their parents;

kipa-wearing yeshiva students; soldiers still in uniform on a day’s leave - these besides the

usual blend o f kibbutznikim, peace activists, students, professionals and parents o f soldiers.

Placards read: “ The blood o f all children is equal” , and “ Why did my son die.

I think that it was easier for me, having been in Israel, than if I had been at home in

California. Here, I was able to witness the large and vocal minority of opposition to the

government ast ^ a genge o f faith _ a gense that the Israeli government would not be

able to push its destructive policies past these people so easily in the future. Time will te .

It is an unsettling fact that citizens in today’s world should even have to contend with

mass murders. The massacre o f 300 men, women and children in West Beirut was a terrible

and unnecessary incident. It was also to the great misfortune o f Israel to have had her

soldiers in the vicinity during that time period.

The responsibility o f these murders has led to tremendous agitation and discussion

among the Jewish people all over Israel and the world. Despite this, I still find myself

able to defend the policy o f the Israeli Government.

For years, the Jewish residents o f the Upper Galil were besieged with Katyusha rockets

and terrorist attacks. When the ID F entered Lebanon on June 6th, 1982, they had no choice

but to fight in order to obtain peace for Israeli citizens. I do not condemn Israel’s prolonged

stay following the actual war, but I understand the trepidation the Government must face

when dealing with the possibility o f leaving when there is no semblence o f peace within the

borders o f Lebanon itself.

Israeli action established the conditions under which a democratic form o f government

could be organized. When the Phalangist Arab population entered the refugee camp

and murdered 300 people, it was to Israel’s great misfortune to be stationed in Lebanon at


World opinion did not pause to consider the fact that what occurred was in Lebanon

and not in Israel. With due respect to this fact, Israel might have been negligent (and the

Kahan Commission did ascertain that there had been Israeli negligence), but they still never

had the burden o f full responsibility for a land not their own. Even so, the Israeli government

deserves credit for pursuing the issue by setting up an inquiry committee, and punishment

was meted out for those negligent: Arik Sharon was removed from office, and others,

including Yehoshua Saguy, were removed from their positions.

The mass demonstration in Tel-Aviv on September 25th, 1982 bears witness to the fact

that in a democracy, people are free to express their concerns. While the 400,000 protesters

gathered to display their distress over Israel’s role in the Beirut occurrence, the very

fact o f their gathering is indicative o f the unity which Israel displays in times o f war or other


While the world was focusing on the role o f Israel in these murders, little was said on

her admirable attempts to answer all questions surrounding the issue. Also, little was said

'about those who should actually bear the full responsibility for the massacre.

The contemporary Western lifestyle has frequently been

called oppressive, stifling, ultra-consumenst and unfulfilling.

Many o f us feel the frustration o f sedentary life and yearn

passionately for the “ great outdoors” or the opportunity to

work with our hands in -some efficacious and gratifying

project. Perhaps some o f us even fancy a complete change in

food, living accomodation, dress and values to accompany

the change in the nature o f our work.

Where however is it possible to materialize this idyllic

vision outside o f Utopia? One hundred years ago the fathers

o f Zionism asked a similar question and they found their

answer in the collective settlements they established after

making aliyah. They expressed both their Jewish identity and

their pioneering spirit through building and operating kibbutzim

and moshavim in the land o f Israel. Today, the

followers o f this Zionist tradition can share in this dream o f

our great leaders as I did during the October vacation by

volunteering on a kibbutz.

Take a middle class western, suburban student, dress her in

work clothes and boots, send her out to the pomegranate

fields or the kitchen and given the right combination o f fresh

air, motivation and drive, she’ll perform like a regular

“ Halutz” ! Had I however been asked for my evaluation o f kibbutz life as I stood with a

knife in front o f 25 kilos o f eggplant at 5:30 a.m. on a cold morning, my responses may

have been different. In retrospect though, the 3 weeks I spent at kibbutz Sde Eliahu in the

Bet Shean Valley were among the most interesting, broadening, and enjoyable o f my

experiences in Israel.

The adjustment o f rising early, following orders, and dining with 600 people requires an

opening up o f yourself, discipline, a respect and understanding o f kibbutz reality, and

participation in achieving the goal o f kibbutzim. Speaking with the members about the life

they chose taught me invaluable lessons that a classroom could not have possibly provided.

Secondly, Sde Eliahu, as part o f the Kibbutz Dati movement, is able to provide a combination

o f traditional Jewish and Israeli living. The facilities are strictly kosher and shabbat

observant; women are not permitted to wear shorts. The spirit o f the o ’ An was manifest

in both a traditional and agricultural context. Without any kind o f religious pressure the

kibbutz provided a very comfortable Jewish atmosphere.

Most o f all however for a serious student o f Hebrew, emersion in an atmosphere o f

primarily Hebrew speakers provides an ideal opportunity. N ot more than 30 o f Sde Eliahu’s

members spoke English, therefore the Summer Ulpan Hebrew was put to work immediately.

The kibbutz was a tremendous confidence builder and a perfect environment to learn and


Kibbutzim are a sociological phenomenon unique to Israel;

many Jews and non-Jews have found fulfillment in their

alternative lifestyle. Granted that many o f us are not ready to

discontinue our studies tom orrow to go join a kibbutz nevertheless

we should recognize that the opportunity exists and

that at least we should try it temporarily.

The Man in front o f Goldsmith — whoever he may be.

“ Labriut", he cries, as he hands you your gum.

With his boxes o f candy he sits in the sun.

He snickers and growls while he dishes out change.

And then the bazooka and ‘Tim e’ he proceeds to arrange.

Kerchief on head, and glasses on face,

Cig in his mouth, students all race . . .

To buy from this man, this mystery man

W ho’s always there, seated on a can.

Identity unknown — what is his name? !

Day after day, he looks the same.

He's a part o f our school — a part o f our year.

Here’s to the man in front o f Goldsmith — Let's give him a cheer!

procession of artillery from trucks to tanks passed us by. From this point, we began heading south toward

Israel, but all along the way we encountered numerous buses of soldiers and artillery heading north. Confusion

was beginning to set in - earlier in the day we were told there was an Israeli pull out, but yet we

kept seeing more and more soldiers heading north - in my mind it didn’t look like a pull out and I questioned

the Army guide at which point he again reiterated a pull out. To say the least, this created a stir

amongst the group!.

Our last stop was Hasbaya, a Druze village that has always been Israeli oriented. Some of its residents

who had moved into Israel had served in Tzahal. The residents were very friendly and of course liked it

when we spent money -Sheqalim or dollars.This village hadn’t been destroyed, nor had its male population

been murdered, but there was a very definite feeling of strain whenever we approached a resident to talk —

a distinct feeling of fear prevailed.

Riding from Hasbaya to Metulla, my mind was spinning a mile a minute. I had seen the remains of

war, experienced the sounds of bombs blasting, seen the people rebuild whatever was left to rebuild, and

saw more and more Israeli soldiers heading north and continuously thought to myself —when will the war

end? When will the people live free from fear? ?

Dear Friends,

Some words before we say good-bye. It was my pleasure to work

with y ou fo r the last ten months and to have y ou all here at the Hebrew

University and in Israel. When / look back to July 27th 1982, it seems

to me that things concerning y ou and maybe me have changed quite a

lot. / remember y ou com ing with all those big Pan-Sonic electronic

instruments with “E .T’. phone h o m e ” tags and with very heavy suitcases

that still have an effect on some o f m y Israeli friends that helped

y ou carry them.

But since then, you have all become independent, y ou adjusted to

the new very quickly and you began to understand the things going on

in this country. When / talk to y ou today (in H ebrew !!I), it seems to

me that you will be much better then any rnVty back at hom e (even

though / am glad that some o f y ou are asking yourselves where hom e

is). / am sure that y ou can be the greatest ambassadors fo r Israel and

her people, and / think that we, the Israelis, deserve good ambassadors

like you.

As fo r m y part, / can divide this period o f time into two parts. / am

sure that I tried to do my jo b as a Madrich in the best way / could

during Uipan, / had a strong m otivation and / loved running in the hall

o f 3/8 and 3/9 in the Eief. As for the academic year, I m ust admit that

/ feit tireç) after the summer.

In addition, the fact that I was n ot needed as in Uipan because o f

y our adjusting gives an explanation, in m y opinion why, and I admit it.

/ wasn’t as dose with/all o f you as a result.

Friends, / wish you at the best wherever you are, even though I hope

y o il all settle in this country one day. Be ambassadors o f good will.

settled into our rooms we had dinner and one last

lecture fo r the day entitled, "Ben-Gurion and the Negev"

w ith Dr. Alon Gal. A t this point we either collapsed

from mental and physical exhaustion or found ourselves

with a powerhouse of energy which led to singing and

dancing. Shabbat was particularily special; we walked

through the Negev like the original children of Israel

along the same route which was lead by Moses thousands

of years previous. This time we walked w ith o u t the

consciousness of slavery behind us but rather w tih an

easy and lighthearted stride and a feeling of being far

away from anything fam iliar. We were free to explore, to

absorb the hypnotic effects of the simple yet profound

views that the desert offered us. We heard poetry from

our tour guide antkoxcerpts from the Bible, we dedicated

a moment to absorb tfre-SQunds of desert silence and

when the first stars of night appe&tecTwe closed the

Shabbat w ith a sip of wine, songs and dancing. Havdalah,

after the clim b up the last mountain of gurjourney, was

fo r riiost students the highlight of the/tnp7~WFTirove—

back to the Desert Research Center,/ate dinner, and

dai/ced some more. Next day we w eni to Ramat Hanegev

College, a new school in the developing town of

Yerucham, which specializes in aft and technology.

Some of us were ready to quit Hebrew U and join the

small population of pioneering students who decided to

give it all up arrd start out fresh in a young and desolated

place. The last lecture, which wgs given at the Dead Sea

Works by Shlomo Drori was the most optimistic and

captivating of all the lectures. The speaRerorrthttsiasticaL^

ly and comically relayed inform ation about the significance

of the Dead Sea, the political implications for

making peace with surrounding neighbors and the result

of discovering minerals which the rest of the world could

use in agriculturally weak areas. He maintains that Israel

could be a rich country and no one could hurt us

because of the strategic importance of possessing the

materials and knowledge fo r sustaining and growing life

out of what appears barren and unproductive.

A fte r this last lecture we boarded the buses and

started north, back to Jerusalem, back to Mount Scopus,

and eventually home to our sheltered dormitories.

Chug Aliyah

On Tuesday afternoons, a group o f about 10 students could be found

with our fearless leader Ira Cohen o f the Association o f Americans and

Canadians in Israel, speaking about the trials and tribulations o f making

Aliya. This group was part o f the scenes o f workshops offered by the OSA.

Each week various aspects o f life as a new Oleh were discussed including

housing, army, employment, and rights o f a new immigrant. The group had

various opportunities to speak with new olim and through their first hand

knowledge began to realize the joys and the fears which lie ahead for them in

their life in Israel. The Chug is also helping to plan the University’s Aliyah

Day and various other activities to help other foreign students with their

thoughts and apprehensions on making aliyah.

The Kibbutz Study Tour which took place on December 9 and 10 was designed to give

students an insight about social, political, and economic life on kibbutz. The goal o f the

tour was successful; in the process o f learning we had a great time!

A fter an early departure (6 a.m.!) on Friday morning, we arrived on Kibbutz Afikim,

one o f the oldest and largest kibbutzim in Israel. A fter a tour o f the beautiful living and

work areas o f the kibbutz and a visit to the factories, gone were my illusions that kibbutzim

only produce fruits, vegetables and cows!! A fik im ’s industry included a milk meter for

milking cows by machine, and a factory for assembling electric cars with some models

specially designed for handicapped people.

Next we visited the “ Tzemach” regional headquarter’s new building on the shores o f

the Kinneret and heard a lecture about the extensive cooperation among all the kibbutzim

in the area, especially in education, social, and cultural programs. A fter lunch on the

Kinneret cemetery containing the graves o f famous Jews such as the poet Rachel and early

Zionists Berl Katzenelson and Moses Hess. Next, a quick trip up to the lower Golan to see a

famous monument dedicated to fallen soldiers, and an underground bunker in a heavily

mined area.

Arriving at the Kibbutz Kfar Blum guest house just before Shabbat, we joined the

entire kibbutz in the dining hall to light the first candle o f Hanukah. Every child had his own

handmade menorah as well as a large one for the whole kibbutz. A fter a delicious dinner the

entire kibbutz was entertained by a comedy show.

Shabbat morning we had a tour o f the kibbutz and an explanation o f its origin. A fter

coffee and cake we had an extensive lecture-discussionon“ Education in the Kibbutz.” The

kibbutzim prefer to organize their own schools on a regional basis rather than send their

children to city schools. Most kibbutzim include work on the kibbutz as part o f daily education.

After lunch we attended another lecture—discussion on “ The Kibbutz — Present and

Future” then divided into groups o f 2 or 3 for placement in various families. M y fam ily was

a husband and wife, both with graduate degrees, who live on kibbutz because they feel it is

the healthiest environment in which to raise their young daughter.

The weekend ended far too soon with our return to Jerusalem late Saturday night. The

Kibbutz study tour turned out to be an enlightening experience as well as an educational

Long Lost Cousins

It started very simply one summer day as an O Y P 17 i’ i) to Tiberias. On arriving at

the youth hostel I found myself sharing a room with one Alan Malter, from a suburb o f

Chicago. Knowing I have cousins by that name, I asked him if he had relatives in Chicago.

Did he know. ..? The usual questions that arise within 2 minutes after meeting anyone ori

O YP. Alan had no knowledge o f m y branch o f the family. But when I asked about his

parents, I found out that his father is a school psychologist. It just so happens that when I

was in kindergarten I was tested by our school psychologist, one Richard Malter. It turned

out he was a distant cousin. This seemed too coincidental. I wrote home and after some

fam ily detective work, my mom confirmed that our great-grandparents were brother and

sister, making us 3rd cousins. N ow our families have even gotten back together in Chicago. Just

think — it's all due to good o l' O YP. N ow w e’ve become friends, but when things don’t go

well between as, Alan gives me the blame, saying “ it was your idea to be cousins. . .”

I didn’t expect Christmas in Jerusalem to have the same special quality that Christmas

with my fam ily in West Germany had. I remember the festive celebration o f Christmas as a

time when the fam ily gathers, a time fo r contemplation about the birth o f Jesus and the

fertility symbolism o f the tree, a time fo r expressing faith that the future o f mankind is

provided by a loving God.

Walking with my Christmas tree through the Jewish and Islamic surroundings o f

Jerusalem before the Holy Eve was a unique journey. A fte f bringing the tree home to the

Arab village where I live, my landlord — a liberal Muslim, decorated the tree with colored

electric lights that a few days ago had served as a shining announcement o f his m other’s

arrival back from Mecca. N ow I had a Christmas tree with shining ornaments, but in honor

o f the producer o f the bulbs we named the tree “Osram. ”

Until the day o f Christmas Eve I wasn’t in the m ood o f preparation f o r the feast that

normally is proked by special ornaments seen on every street lamp and shop window at least

one month before the holiday. Luckily Christmas Eve fe ll on Shabbat; the excitem ent o f

last minute shoppers at Machane Yehuda reminded me o f bustling street scenes in West

Germany before the Eve approaches.

Later, in the dark when I was climbing up Ras al Am ud carrying home the heavy

kerosene fo r the heater, the Judean Hills were echoing drums o f an Arab wedding party

somewhere in the valley.

A fte r a great supper we went to a candle lit church in the Old City. But the short

m om ent in Ras al Am ud with its earthy and warm atmosphere told me something unexpectedly

special about Christmas: I f there is any truth in a concept o f God com ing as close as

possible to our world, then it has to f it such a situation o f simplicity and strangeness like I

experienced at that moment, and like it must have been originally when Mary gave birth to

her first child only a few miles away.

This feeling o f ‘origin’ defined Christmas fo r me in a special way - Christmas in

Jerusalem turned out to be filled with unexpected surprises.

Funny. / heard someone lamenting over the fact th at they are leaving in 2 short weeks. A n d I sit here

desperately wanting to change places w ith them. To see m y fam ily, to be in fam iliar surroundings. . . They

told me it w ould take all o f Ulpan to adjust. Some said more. One wise friend to ld me / w ou ldn’t start

"appreciating" u n til it was tim e to leave. A H around me people are complaining about the w ork load, the

high-school like accomodations, the lack o f travel time — and y e t 5 m onths from now, when the end is

really in sight, w e 'll be dreading our return to the States. Dreading having to leave this place which we've

grown accustomed to. Wondering w hat our return to the States w ill bring. Have / changed? Have m y

friends changed? W ill they still love me? Soon enough only memories w ill prevail. Memories o f the fun

times, the happy days spent w ith friends from all over the world. We’ll think back fondly to the days o f

"Goldsmith High " and the nights o f Resnick o r Idelson residency.

A n d y e t today, w ith 2 research papers and upcoming finals weighing heavily on m y m ind — do I

really believe all o f these things? Could they ever possibly become real? — These are the things we must

keep in m ind in the fin al stretch o f this semester. A light a t the end o f the tunnel?

?U>3in A tim e to

think clearly, to do blithely and to appreciate. F o r now though, let me complain and be miserable. L et me

memories — as they inevitably do...

These words continuously rang in my ears as we marched from one activity to the next during Feb. 2—9, 1983

our week in the Israeli army. Arriving at Sde Boker, our Gadna base in the Negev, my feelings of expectation and excitement

were soon met with apprehension dragging our mattresses and 4 blankets through the mud and rain into our tents

which were to be our homes fo r the next week. Full of skepticism, my doubts rose as we toured around the small base and

were shown all the places we were forbidden to walk fearing the consequences of making small talk w ih t our friends. We

silently and obediently did everything we were told including waiting in line to be checked for lice. Taking orders from a

no7n n younger than myself and having no control over any of my activities was going to take some getting used to.

As dinner time approached I longingly counted the minutes until I would have the freedom to socialize S relaxw ith

my friends. Alas — five minutes before we were to be in the dining hall my no7n n assigned me to be m u y of our tent

while everyone else charged towards the dining room. M iserable, I entered the dark tent. Though freezing, I was terrified

of getting under my covers for it would create a disarray of our beds which were in perfect order. My clothes wet, my

stomach growling and my disposition downcast, I was ready to return to my warm room on o7axn i n .

In the midst of my misery, my tentmates returned with orders that we were leaving in 5 minutes for a tiyul. Ecstatic,

I wolfed down my cold dinner, filled my canteens and lined up in front of the tent. However, I soon found myself

marching in total darkness in the Negev; tripping over stones and walking into puddles I couldn't see, wasn't my idea of an

enjoyable time. Our commanders alternately ordered us to run, slow down and drink from our canteens - all at their

whim. I fe lt a loss of control - as if I was participating in a fraternity initiation. But as we stood silently at the end of our

path and were ordered to listen and lookaround us, I understood. Standing under the brightest stars I had ever seen, I heard

a waterfall and owls hooting in the distance. I felt more alive than I had in a long time.

That feeling seemed a b it distant when we were wakened at 5:30 the next morning but our 5:45 exercises soon

changed that! Though we only had a week to live and learn about life in the army, the quality and quantity of our experiences

was enormous. Quite vaned our days activities ranged from topography and gun lessons, rope climbing and

obstacle courses to washing dishes and hearing lectures about different facets of the Israeli Army. Of course the highlight

of every ones day was going to vpv>\

Learning played a large role in our days but pulling the trigger of an M-16 fo r the first time was in indescirbable

experience. Realizing how easy it was to h it the target was quite frightening and highlighted the grim reality of life in

bNTW7 yiN . Eating battle rations during our topographical navigations of the Ramon Crater towards the end of our

stay, we experienced both initiative & seclusion which are so much a part of a soldiers life.

Those who participate in Marva, a 3 month army program conducted in Hebrew for those interested in making Aliyah

get 3 months taken off their regular army service. Our Mini-Marva, encompassing numerous aspects of army life was an

unforgettable expereince for all its participants. To me, what left lasting impressions was the opportunity to get to know

the soldiers personally. Joining together in song over m\u dinner and in sport activities the next day was a special part

of my week. Realizing that my commander who had barked continuous orders all week and yelled at me even when I was

on time was the 19 year old who still slept with teddy bears brought out the reality of a vital part of life in Israel today,

the army.

I’m amazed at the length o f time which

has already passed by me; six months at

a glance seems not long but in fact when

it is judged in the context o f one year

then I see m yself approaching middle age.

I arrived in Jerusalem during the heat o f

a desert summer, the Mideast boiling with

warfare, anticipation filling every muscle

with desire to uncover the mystery o f

Israel. As I sit here now while the storms

blow outside my dorm window and the

bare trees shiver and shake in the wind, I

can recall memories o f summer and fall

with a sense o f fulfillment and rest a moment

before the spring comes to take me

for another round o f journeys through

this beautiful country. I ask m yself am I

just growing older with time or fuller

from knowledge and experience. A l­

though my initial idealism which drove

me to apply to Hebrew University in the

first place has softened and taken on a

more realistic tone, I feel m yself heading

toward a deeper understanding o f Israeli

life and a more truthful understanding o f

the word Jew. Instead o f rushing here and

there fearing that I’d miss something, a

familiar routine has settled into my life

offering me the chance to sit quietly and

think. Blending in with Israeli society and

attitudes has taught me to accept each

moment step by step.

The view from Mount Scopus o f the

city, and the vast white desert which leads

to the mountains o f Jordan, has become

an overwhelmingly sustainable force, filling

my eyes with pictures o f beauty

which rest in the back o f m y mind bringing

stability and hope to the uncertain 80’s.

It wouldn’t be fair to say the One Year Program is confined to the boundaries o f

Mount Scopus. A group o f us broke the m yth o f the ‘ivory tow er’syndrome by signing up

for a study tour with the Israel Defense Force. Since the army in Israel represents a large

percentage o f the population, seeing what the army does outside the realm o f combat and

how it interacts with the rest o f society, was an important learning experience.

We were taken, with the assistance o f an army spokesperson, to a tank training base

in central Israel, a paratrooper training school in the northern area, an officers training

school near Jerusalem, and Givat Olga (Educational Institute for Socially Disadvantaged

Youth). Apart from discussions at these different areas we were also given the opportunity

to meet and talk with a member o f the Jewish resistance in Europe, and the former Chief

Education Officer o f the army.

The highlight o f the tour was when we attended ah inform al discussion with some

pilots and army social workers.

In general, the study tour which lasted three days provided us with not only deep

insight about the p ilo t’s experiences, and m ilitary manoeuvers, but also filled us with a sense

o f pride in the ‘force behind the nation’. Now, when / see the Israeli soldier in town, on the

bus, in the store, with the gun over his or her uniformed shoulder, / feel / understand not

ju st the soldier’s role, but the development and training which led to the fulfillm ent o f

this role.

What can you say when you walk into a school yard and about a

dozen kids come running up to you w ith giant smiles on their faces,

hugging, kissing and sim ply overjoyed to see you?? Well, norm ally this

would be a special feeling, b ut what I would like to tell you all about is

even a more special feeling. Volunteering through the OYP Volunteer

Project has le ft many o f us w ith just th at very special feeling.

The kids I referred to above are o f all different sizes and shapes.

Some look rather strange and others look incredibly adorable. They

range in ages from five to sixteen and they are all m entally retarded in

some way.

A b o u t 15 OYP students along w ith a few other volunteers go to

A lum im once or twice a week to give these special kids an after school

“ M oadon,” or club house. The purpose o f the program is to produce

some kind o f “ o u t o f school” environm ent fo r the kids to play, learn

and just be a b it more free than they ever can be in their form al schoolyard

and even their homes.

O f course, things d o n ’t always w ork o u t the way th ey’re planned.

Sometimes the atmosphere produced was much too w ild and we almost

fe lt like running fo r the hills (o f which there are many o f in Jerusalem.

. .). Y et even when I left A lum im tired, fed up and burned out, I

can remember very special feelings I had w ith some o f the kids. Let me

give you an example. One boy (his name is Avi) is a very curious kid.

He wants to see and learn everything new. (We th in k that at home he is

so secluded from the outside world th at when he gets to us he’s dying

to explore.) That is also some o f our major problems w ith him. He likes

to run away. N ot just to run away, but he wants us to run either after

him or w ith him. One time I gave in and decided to take him on a walk

outside o f the school grounds. Maybe I should note one o f A v i’s disabilities

is that he w on’t talk. The educators working


During my year studying at the Hebrew University

, I involved myself in a volunteer project sponsored

by the O ffice o f Student A ctivities. For this project, I

helped an elderly man who lives alone in the Mekor

Baruch neighborhood o f Jerusalem. By giving my

tim e to aid someone w ho needed my help, I fe lt that

this year in Israel meant more than just school work

and travel. Also, this experience required me to use,

and thus improve m y Hebrew. Lastly, this volunteer

project enabled me to go inside Israeli society and see

an aspect o f this country th at otherwise is hidden

from the Overseas Student.

My first contact w ith archeology was on a trip to Masada when I arrive in Israel fo r the

first tim e last June. I was impressed w ith Yigael Yadin'sexcavations: the combinations of

expertise and imagination required in recreating the ancient Masada o f Herodian days, 2000

years ago.

When the Office o f Student Activities advertised volunteer opportunities in the Jerusalem

area in early October, I gravitated towards the archeology position, knowing that such a

chance would be harder to come by in the States. I volunteered fo r three hours a week in

Ruth Amiran's archeology department at the Israel Museum. Am iran is a leading pottery

expert who has been responsible fo r the excavations being dug since the early 60's at

Tel-Arad near Be'er-Sheva. Despite her tig h t schedule, Ruth Amiran always finds tim e to

chat w ith the volunteers; not only about archeology, her first love, but about our personal

concerns as well. I w ill cherish her friendship fo r years to come.

I had no previous first-hand contact w ith archeology, and in the process of my w ork I

learned some o f the "ins and outs" o f the field on an "on the job training" basis. While

the archeologists dig a few months each year, volunteers like myself are needed to organize

their finds. In the past months, I sorted 3000 year-old animal bones according to the sites

where they were found at Tel-Arad. These were sent to a zoologist fo r evaluation. I tried by

hand at restoration — piecing clay remnants together to reconstruct a pottery vessel — the

ultim ate challenge fo r jigsaw puzzle lovers. M ostly, I worked on book-keeping o f finds in

organized fikes fo r the archeologists' easy reference in eventual publication projects. The

highlight o f my experience was a day trip to Arad to walk through the Tel which I had seen

only in maps and pictures.

Israel is so steeped in its ancient past, our common past as a Jewish nation. Working w ith

archeology has given me a special insight into what Israel is about, and fo r that matter, what

I, as a Daughter o f Israel, am about.

A trip to Egypt was something that I never imagined doing, but while being here -

on this side o f the globe — it seemed like the most natural place to travel, outside o f Israel.

The bus departed from Goldsmith at 6:30 in the morning, and didn't return until

9 days later —after having some really amazing experiences.

Seeing the pyramids, the sphynx, the Valley o f the Kings and visiting a Nubian

Village were just some o f the highlighted places that we ventured to. But what really made

the trip was the friendship formed between the people o f the group and our faithful Egyptian

tour-guide, Ahmad. He was a character. The hieroglyphics he read to us, and the stories

he told, along with his belly-dancing and singing o f Egyptian songs, created an atmosphere

o f amazement, and filled us with high spirits.

Wow, what a great trip ! We all realized that what we experienced in Egypt with Ahmad

was something very special, and very unusual.

But what a feeling to be home — back in Israel!

Seeing and feeling Israel from a hostile country was an experience Daniel Seigel, Todd

Zuckerbrod, Allan Black, and I shall never forget.

After touring Egypt for eight days and filling our time with memorable sights, sounds

and smells we departed for Jordan. Leaving behind a taxi driver who growled between Giza

and Sakkara, another who asked to "test my strength," a money exchanger who “ accidently

” slipped a one pound note in the place o f a 10 pound, and a total o f 29 hours on the

train between Cairo and Luxor we arrived in Suez City. Arriving at the port we were greeted

with 2000 “ boat people” — G-d only knows how they got the boatfare. Finally we were on

the El-Arish bound for Aqaba, Jordan.

Once at sea, we fanagled a free cabin for the four o f us and settled down to enjoy the

cruise. The Egyptians — in a couple o f galabiyahs each and sheltered from the sun’s rays

were quite astonished and amused to see two “ Ameriks” attempting to get a tan on the bow

o f the ship. Flames from the oil wells in the Red Sea were beautiful as we rounded the tip

o f the Sinai late in the night.

We awakened as our ship was opposite Taba. We cruised into Aqaba with odd feelings

in our stomachs. First o f all, why is it that only we four were sitting on the port side o f boat

facing Eilat? The other side was jammed with people watching their — Arab — nation; we

were looking at our — Jewish — state. This was to be the first time we were to feel “ behind a

hostile border.” To see Eilat from “ the other side” was unnerving. It looked so rich, so near,

and yet so really far away. From the water, Eilat and Aqaba appeared symmetrical. On land,

we equated Aqaba with a combination o f East Jerusalem and Eilat.

Driving through the Moab and Edom Mountains was beautiful; yet, the sighting o f

lights emanating from kibbutzim (in the Negev) gave us the feeling again o f distance.

■ I Amman, if you ’re interested is like Jerusa-

J ®

lem: it stretches across hills and is built

with the same building materials (what we

call Jerusalem stone). Once, when driving

through Jebel (hill) Amman, I felt as if we

were in Rehavia.

When people in Egypt asked us if we were

Israelis we just replied, “ American and

Canadian. ” In Jordan this, o f course wasn’t

asked, but it didn’t matter either. Due to

the events in Sabra and Shatilla, even the

nicest people we met despised America —

arms, money, and tolerance all to Israel. A

taxi driver asked us why we let Israel kill

his family. We stirred and kept ourselves

objectively removed — as any American

would have done in a similar situation.

Also, we had to remain on constant guard

against using Hebrew: no “ rega,” no

“ toda,” and no “ slicha.”


Y es, Petra was magnificent ; however it is

in no way “ k ’dai” to risk one’s life to see it.

Many Israelis lost their lives in the ‘ 50s in

attempts to view the “ Red R ock.” We hitched

up onto a tour group with a guide and as he

pointed out the sights, we were quite taken

back to hear him say that “ from that ridge

there (the High Altar) you can see ‘Occupied

Palestine.’ We felt it again: we were tiyuling

in a hostile country.

As we left Amman bound for Israel we

left behind an Interior Ministry, official

content that four more Christian pilgrims are

going to see the sites in “ Occupied” Jerusalem

— it would boggle his mind to know that we

had classes that day at the Hebrew University

o f Jerusalem!! We approached the Jordan

River stretching our eyes to see the green

fields o f Israel — what a fantastic sight it was;

and what an exhilarating feeling, as well.

On the Israeli side o f the bridge we started laughing — ecstatic as hell to be in Israel

again. The Israeli immigration officer asked if we were tourists and we proudly answered

“ betach.” A t passport control the officials were amused - four nice Jewish boys returning

to school after romping around in Jordan.

As we made our way back towards Jerusalem, we saw Mt. Scopus: an amazing feeling

for we knew we had “ done it ” and were now home.

Our coup was over — school had resumed — Petra was behind us — as we smiled in class

that day.

I arrived in Ben-Gurion A irp o rt with baggage fu ll of the promise of Israel, w ith visions of past successes,

w ith dreams, w ith the splendours of the State that had been my nourishment as a child. My hopes exceeded

my naivety but the realities soon obliterated my expectations leaving me in doubt and confusion fe lt when

dreams are soiled by the muck of reality and the weaknesses of human beings. Where was the Israel that I

had been raised on? Had it ever existed or was it merely in a state of hibernation?

Everything seemed to be in fragments around me. Somehow I had to retrieve the pieces and f it them

into a coherent whole so that I could understand and come to terms with the dichotom y. It is a hidden

trauma that I believe we all experience - a Jewry and Judaism decisively charged by its confrontation w ith

the modern age — to reeducate ourselves, rebuild our core from the treasures of our past - a release from

the vision of our fathers in order to build our own vision, one which I hope is more realistic in its evaluations.

We are in an interregnum between worlds, groping about, peering into the future and seeing our own

image vaguely reflected in the ocean of blood that is the Holocaust. However, I was unable to identify w ith

the sense of constant struggle that so many Jews in Israel experience. A ll I saw was the wariness that is the

reflex of a battered people and the drain upon creative energies and the coarsening of moral fiber caused by

endless m ilitary vigilance.

One of the most annoying memories of my stay was the habit of so many Israelis asking young Jewish

students like myself w hy they did not come to live in Israel, as if only you gave it a little thought, you

would unpack yourbags and never leave. It was like coming to some relative's house where you didn't know

anyone and being asked w ithout further ado by all your cousins to marry them. N ot the most tactfuj of icebreakers.

Perhaps I didn't know how to answer the question w ithout sounding either offended or offensive,

perhaps because it touched on some residual guilt that I had.

There are many differences I sense between my reactions as a Diaspora Jew and those of most Israelis.

It's d iffic u lt to define this difference exactly since it's a matter of many nuances of feeling and thought; but

essentially it seems to me to involve the blunting in Israel of certain types of sensitivities that have historically

characterized Jewish life as a whole. One of the finest traits of Jewish life in the Diaspora, fo r instance,

has always been its ethical idealism and its concern w ith social justice, not just fo r Jews but as a universal

principle. One need only reflect on the participation of Jews, out of all proportion to their numbers, in

socially progressive causes everywhere in modern times, or, in the specific case of America, in liberal

politics, in the civil rights movement, in the anti-Vietnam movement, etc., to realize how persistent this

tradition has been.

Yet of what such typically Jewish behavior do you find in Israel today? Oh, Israelis are quick enough to

protest when they feel that they themselves have been wronged - if anything, too quick! - but try suggesting

to them that they might care as much about wrongs done to others, and you w ill get a pitying look

for your innocence. I, fo r one, have experienced this "lo o k " firsthand. For the first time in our history,

realpolitik has replaced Jewish ethics as a way of life. The experience of national sovereignty in Israel does

not seem to have enhanced Jewish moral sensibilities.

Perhaps it is unfair to criticize Israel fo r lacking qualities whose possession is an absurd luxury to a

people living under seige. Perhaps when peace comes, Israeli society w ill be able to transcend its present

lim itations. But that day is far away. What I have come to realize however, is that the only test of one's

Jewish commitment is one's willingness to partake in the struggle itself. Today, in the last quarter of the

twentieth century» the survival of the Jews and Israel are the same, and whether Israel can survive depends,

among other things, on the numbers and talents of Diaspora Jews who w ill come to it - which means it

depends on you and me.

There are flowers to plant, seedlings to nature, young trees to tend, old earth to enrich, and new earth to

put in - a garden of new dreams to bring forth, to add to old covenants and messianic hopes, and to offer

to our people and to our broken world.

In recent years students have formed the “ Pipeline Committee” which acts as the intermediary

between the O YP student body and the administration o f the Rothberg School.

The “ Pipeline” has dealt with three facets o f life at Hebrew University: academic affairs, life

in the dorms and co-curricular activities.

Working closely with the Madrichim and the OSA, the committee has accomplished a

great deal over the past few months. The huge success o f the SPRING BASH revitalized the

students’ spirits after a long, cold winter. Members o f the committee have also been responsible

for the distribution o f academic and program evaluations, as well as the highly successful

workshop on cultural re-entry to North America.

The O YP Pipeline Committee was also able to effectively organize a sports program

(jogging club, football, ultimate frisbee) and the very useful O YP Want Ads. The end o f the

year provided an opportunity to help the O YP students sell and donate that which is now

too small, obsolete, or classified as excess baggage. This, o f course, refers to the Giant

Garage Sale and clothes drive for the M j P And o f course, the end o f the year party is

being planned by the members o f the Pipeline Committee. The Pipeline Committee s

biggest project was the preparatory booklet for next year’s students entitled “ A NEW

SCOPE.” This handbook was indeed upgraded a great deal over the previous issue and

should serve next year’s students well.

It is honestly believed that the dozen or so projects that the committee had taken on — all

successfully led to the original goal — a more unified, informed, and active student body.

The Pipeline Committee was comprised o f students from all over North America including

representation o f graduate students. Being the hard working group that Pipeline was, the

comittee repeatedly treated itself with the PPPPP - the Post Party Pipeline Pina Coladas

Party. This became an integral part o f meetings and probably the rationale behind its

successful work this past year.

I awoke to the piercing sound o f my alarm clock; the hour was 6:30 am and the day

was February 28th. . . Purim. As the beep-beep o f m y alarm echoed through the hallways

o f Resnick 3, I debated whether it was worth dragging myself out o f bed after retiring only

a few hours prior. Purim eve — singing, dancing and partying — had rapped my energy

supply, but because this holiday only came once a year, I had no choice but to meet the

challenge o f emerging from bed. M y destination on this fine Purim day was Netivot, a development

town in the Negev that was sponsoring a festival for residents o f development towns

and other groups from all over the country. That crazy gang from the O SA office had

insisted that a costume was mandatory, so on went the Popeye outfit — hat, sailor shirt,

pipe and muscles — and out the door I flew to catch the Hebrew U Express to Netivot.

Once we hit the road, there was no turning back! A crazy fella grabbed his make-up

bag and proceded to attack all those who had forgotten their costumes in haste to make the

bus on time! Ha! In a matter o f minutes, our group o f 20 had been transformed into a gang

o f vivacious clowns, gruesome punk-rockers, and mysterious monsters. Yes, these were the

people that would represent Hebrew University at this nationwide festival — a m otley crew

to say the least! Netivot was a scene o f mass confusion — people in costume running in

every direction, buses arriving, children singing — not knowing where to turn, we were

guided to our proper places.. . Wait, our proper places. .. what was going on? ? .. . Oh, o f

course, weren’t we told, they said! We were marching in a parade, while being filmed for a

movie about Hebrew University’s Overseas Students! And so we marched, singing and smiling

for the camera, waving to the people hanging from their windows and standing at their front

doors, carrying our banner ever so proudly and directing our mascot (a gullible soul who

wore a paper mache monster head that made normal vision impossible!). A fter this unexpected

tour o f the town by foot, we settled down for a program which consisted o f dance

groups, rock-n-roll bands, mime, and Israeli dancing, involving EVERYO N E , young and old

alike! The festive spirit was in the air and everyone was caught up in it!. I was glad that my

conscience had forced me to arise from bed hours earlier. As I looked around, I saw various

groups interacting, laughing, and celebrating together — a feeling o f man prevailed. The

end o f the day brought a surprise V IC T O R Y for Hebrew University! In the Purim costume

contest stole the show by collecting first and second prizes! A t 3 pm, that m otley bunch o f

Purim partiers loaded the bus once again — destination: Jerusalem. A n unusual yet fulfilling

Purim experience in Netivot had come to an end and it was time to return to rea ty.

I ’m sitting here at Hadassah waiting for someone to

look at my knee. I ’m sitting here amidst the masses, all

laden with various pieces o f apparatus for hurt or broken

appendages. . .This is some mix o f humanity. People o f

all ages speaking a hundred different languages. Scared

young faces, impatient elderly faces and the rest o f us

angry at this endless waiting — as with everything here:

the bank, the post office, the supermarket, offices —

lines, lines, lines — Hurry up and wait! My present

frustration is because I ’m supposed to meet someone for

lunch... Never make an appointment when you know

you 11 be at one o f the above mentioned places.

I went to see the Doctor and he twisted, pulled,

pushed, bent — then he told me to go get my x-rays. No,

they couldn’t have told me that while I sat here for an

hour and waited. It wouldn’t occur to them that they’d

be saving everyone time. .. I ’ve now been here an hour

and a half and the doctor is taking his coffee break.

WHAT NEXT? ? It is at this point that one must constantly

refrain from ranting and raving. N o one understands

and what’s more, no one cares! A t long last, the

big man in the white coat returns. One more person to

go then I will be free o f this interminable waiting-away

from these white walls, and out o f hearing range o f the

constant foreign murmur. WHAT GOES ON BEHIND


TIME? ? ? As the minutes tick away I realize 111 have to

meet my lunch date some other time. The time when all

good men must eat has gone. Who could know that 9 :30

am would turn into a full day’s adventure? And so I

leave you all and begin to pace; frustrated, angry, hungry

and anxious to hear the words on the lips o f the man —

while. ..

Y o u ’re really here. Y o u can ’t believe it

either. In a daze y o u w alk the streets o f Jerusalem.

Certain aspects o f the city hit y o u . T h e new buildings

buQt so close to the old. H o w striking the difference.

H o w interesting, yet pleasant the m ixture. The diversity

o f p e o p le , the variety o f clothes and fashion (that

are accepted). A t first, the p eople seem pushy, rude,

o bnoxiou s. T h e y are honest. T h ey are n ot superficial.

H onesty can have its negative aspects, b u t it has

positive aspects as w ell. A lso as a p eople they are

willing to give o f themselves to y o u , to go out o f their

w a y to explain, to h elp, rather than to rid themselves

o f y o u b y handing y o u som e cash. T o o often w e give

o f material things b efo re w e give o f ourselves. A w alk

d o w n Jaffa road. . . T h e smell o f falafe l, o f shuarm a,

o f pizza, o f baked goods fills y o u r nostrils. I t ’s so

hard to pass them b y . Y o u r stom ach drives y o u tow

ards them. T h e w eek days rush slow ly slow ly com e

to an exciting end. T h e Sabbath. T h e F rid ay aftern

o o n h orn announcing it’s com m encem ent. H o w nice

it is to experience S h abbat in Israel. W h at a com fortable

feeling. Everyone is experiencing it; Each in their

o w n w a y . Sim ilarly, the Jewish h olidays — n o classes.

Y o u can be Jewish easily. Y o u d o n ’t have to g o out

o f y o u r w ay.

B u t, all is not such a pretty picture. Standing in

line at the ban k , the superm arket, the post office.

L ife is b u t a line, som etim es orderly, som etim es disord

erly, som etim es calm , som etim es pardam onious.

It is alw ays at these times that y o u reconsider. W hat

are y o u d oin g here.

Y o u arrive at the p o o l fo r a swim , the schedule

states it is open. " h a p " calls the o ld m an w h o sits

beh in d the desk, " n n 1?" y o u inquire. W>VJ 7 ^ 3 "

" □ v n n n n n . O h , that explains it, a com petition.

Figures. T h e 45 m inute shlep in the bus to arrive at

a closed p o o l.

Saturday night returning fro m T e l Aviv. W here is

that 28 bus? Y o u stand and w ait stand and wait. . .

15 m in u te s.. . a h alf an h our. O p ps, forgot. 28 does

n o t ru n o n M otzai Sh abbat or M otzai Chag.

m nm nnm m n m edicine. Free treatm ent for all.

W h at d o y o u get in return. 3 interns, with 3 different

opinions. A w ild goose chase.

B ook in g a reservation o n Galilee T ours fo r a bus

back fro m E gypt. Y o u arrive at the expected destination

a h a lf an h o u r b efo re the tim e o f departure. A

h alf an h o u r after departure tim e, y o u are in form ed

that there is no bus. So G alilee scheduled y o u on a

phan tom bus. Shit. W h at do y o u d o now?

The banks close early o n W ednesdays. Everyday

things are open at fu n n y hours. F ro m m orning to

8.00. Then siesta tim e. A n d fro m 4 :0 0 to 7:00. F riday

everything closes early. Sundays are like M on ­

days. A t the beginning it’s very confusing.

It is 8 :0 0 at night. Y o u go to use the phone. The

line is only 8 p eople. T h a t’s better than usual. Finally

, after an h o u r and a h a lf it’s y o u r turn, either the

phone just so happens to break, the line is b u s y , or

the phone eats y o u r last asim one. It never fails.

Frustration, anger, annoyance. . . all these em o­

tions call to fo re that some question. “ W h y am I

here? ’’ B u t som eh ow w h en things seem to be at their

w orst, an Israeli alw ays com es along and instils y o u

w ith a n ew breath o f hope. Optim ism prevails, even in


w orst circumstances. A s the expression goes:

" n p a n ’ rp ? 3 n ".


You're Really Here

So every society has its problem s. T o com bat this

one must take these situations w ith a grain o f salt and

learn to laugh at them if not while they are going on


B u t w h en these feelings appear, just rem em ber,

Jaffa road, the attracting smells as y o u pass, the

p eople, the scenery, the experience o f Israel. A taste

o f another society. A n d , d o smile. A n d not just only

smile, a special smile.

"W elcome to the Eternal L in k. It seems like only yesterday th a t a group o f 30 students convened fo r

th eir 1st Eternal L ink planning session. In fact, I remember preparing a list o f goals and objectives fo r the

group to consider as we attempted to get this project moving.

Putting this year in perspective by tying together some loose ends, getting answers to some lingering

questions and taking the tim e to appreciate our experiences in Israel. Providing students w ith inform ation,

ideas and skills that w ould be utilized on home campuses next year. Bringing together students w ho have

had similar, yet d iffe re n t experiences. Form ing bonds that would continue and flourish next year. And

lastly, providing students w ith an o p p o rtu n ity to meet and ta lk w ith representatives from various Jewish


By a week into this project, I could recite these objectives at the speed o f sound w ith o u t an ounce of

concentration. BUT, did I really understand what I was saying? Did we, as a group', really comprehend this

project's importance as the 1st step in preparing fo r a return to our home campuses? NO! The Eternal Link

was an abstract conception th at w ould slowly b ut surely take on a concrete form as the days progressed.

Students returned to the US and Canada over Pesach break and brought back stories... people still wanted

answers about the war in Lebanon. . . student activist groups on US campuses were being confronted by

strong, organized, and demanding Arab groups. . . Anti-sem itism was on the rise. . . was the media distorting

certain facts about Israel. . . it was all rather confusing and overwhelming. Our w ork continued and the

reality was beginning to take shape.

Jon Kessler, head o f AIPAC, the American-lsrael lobby in Washington came to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and

Haifa to provide campus updates on the latest Israel-related happenings. We heard about rallies, shocking

newspaper ads, powerful speakers, and the endless supply o f Arab propaganda th at is currently in circulation

on our campuses. The reality was brought into focus once again.

We began to do research fo r our workshops — using the media to yo ur advantage, w orking w ith Washingto

n, m obilizing students fo r Israel, countering Israel's detractors — just to name a few — and our eyes were

opened as we worked. T hat abstract conception - the need to understand, preserve and defend our Eternal

L ink w ith Israel was becoming a reality.

It became apparent th at we would soon be returning home, as representatives o f Israel, in a sense. A fte r

being in Israel fo r a year or 6 months, it would be hard to disregard our ties to Israel and the Jewish

people. On the contrary — we would be charged w ith an inescapable responsibility — th a t is, a responsibility

to speak o ut, to be inform ed, and to become involved w ith Israel related activities.

Take advantage o f all that is being offered to you to day!! Israel needs us and we need Israel — just

remember this as you participate in the day's activities in the future. This Eternal Link is n ot a one way

street — it runs both w ays!"

Debbie Korn

May 3, 1983 — Opening Remarks

The Activism Workshop was a group of dedicated students w ho undertook the responsibility o f helping the

students prepare fo r th eir return home to th eir campuses. The Eternal Link, the pride and highlight o f the

Activism workshop was the culm ination o f the group's work.

The O Y P serves many purposes. It illuminates our awareness o f Middle Eastern culture,

introduces us to students from all over the world, encourages us to explore and enjoy, but

one aspect often neglected in our year long evaluation o f the program is, o f course, the academics.

Remember the enthusiasm o f Slymovics? The soft spoken sincerity o f Prof.

Fackenheim? The idol worship o f Dr. Gafni? The lectures o f Nissan? The nuggets of

wisdom w e’ve inherited? The philosophy? Political Science? Literature? I t ’s all part o f the

O YP, just as important as the friendships w e’ve made and the places w e’ve gone. With the

pressure o f mid-terms and finals behind us, and our senior year back home waiting for most

o f us, perhaps we can remember to pack not only the memories o f Moadon 15 and parties in

the dorms, but also to pack in a special corner o f our suitcases the jewels o f knowledge

w e’ve attained (along with our Bedouin dresses and Hebrew University T-shirts) For,

The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;

By understanding He established the heavens. (Proverbs 3:19)

l l i l l l W l l i i M P t l l l l l

I t was a year to love,

A year o f joy,

A year o f sorrow,

A year o f tears,

A year o f laughter,

But m ost o f all,

It was a year o f happiness,

I t was a year to remember,

F o r all our lives.
