Introduction<br />

Little did we know what our Israel experience would have in store for us the day we stepped off<br />

the plane at Ben Gurion Airport. We came from all over the world, with backgrounds as varied as<br />

those of the Israelis themselves. Our paths collided into one—we became the overseas programs<br />

students of <strong>1987</strong>-88.<br />

Eleven months later we ask ourselves how it went by so quickly. But we knew before we came<br />

that the One Year Program is just that—one year. We knew that some day we’d have to leave, to<br />

say goodbye to our friends and to our life that we’d grown to love. The last few months have been<br />

like a whirlwind for us, trying to see and accomplish all that we hadn’t yet had a chance to do,<br />

trying to make this year fulfill all our expectations. For many of us, our expectations were even<br />

surpassed. Who would have thought a person could learn and grow so much, and become so<br />

independent, in only one year? Who would have thought we could become so close, could adjust<br />

so well to a foreign culture, in such a short period of time?<br />

But we did. At times we thought we’d never survive a whole year, but not only have we survived,<br />

we have grown, and grown close to each other. No one can ever take away our past. Nothing can<br />

ever destroy the bond we share, with each other and with Eretz Yisrael. And, of course, goodbyes<br />

are not forever. As we go home, we’ll take what we’ve learned from this year, and carry it with us<br />

all our lives. And while you’re reaching for your dreams, looking toward an unknown future,<br />

never forget that there’s a source of inspiration, a place where you can retreat, a safe place deep<br />

inside you that can make you smile anytime, anywhere.<br />

All you need to do is remember that very special year. Yes, you know the one. Youryear in Israel.<br />

Perched high atpp Mt. Scopus is the Hebrew University, a bastion of higher education in the<br />

Holy Land. An exciting place to study, the Hebrew University was home this year to well over<br />

1,300 foreign students. Getting along in the mysterious, convoluted bureaucracy that is<br />

Israel—and the University in particular—can be a harrowing experience. In Let’s Go Hebrew<br />

U, we attempt to guide the novice overseas student through the pitfalls and traps of study<br />

abroad. Let our experiences be a lesson to ajl who follow, and a reminder to ourselves of the<br />

most amazing year of our lives.<br />

Planning Your Trip<br />

Price Warning<br />

We quote no prices in this yearbook. Our researchers in the field are irrelevant. The stock market<br />

will crash, the dollar will fall, and the new 20-shekel bill will be real pretty. Prices will be<br />

unpredictable but high. Converting prices to American dollar equivalents will thoroughly<br />

confuse you.<br />

Documents<br />

Passports<br />

Your passport will collect lots of really keen stamps in indecipherable foreign languages. If your<br />

passport expires while you are in Israel, good luck to you dealing with your embassy. You need a<br />

valid passport to do much of anything worthwhile around here. If you also have an Israeli<br />

passport, you will be snatched up by the IDF and never be seen again.<br />

Visas<br />

Your tourist visa will expire after three months. You will have to stand in line forever to renew it,<br />

or you can spend megabucks to leave the country every time it expires. If you have a student visa,<br />

it will last all year but you will never be allowed to leave.<br />

Student Identification<br />

Your Histadrut HaStudentim card will be invaluable for getting into Resnick after dark—even if<br />

you leave it in your room when you go out. But get one anyway. It’s a nice souvenir.<br />

Money<br />

Currency and Exchange<br />

Israeli currency is the New Israeli Shekel (not to be confused with the Old Israeli Shekel, the New<br />

Guinea Shekel, the Japanese Yen, or the New Israeli). American dollars work just fine, though.<br />

For the best exchange rate, see Yossi outside Richie’s Pizza.<br />

Traveler's Checks<br />

Nothing is likely to cause more headaches than money—even when you have it. Traveler’s checks<br />

are the safest and least troublesome way of carrying your funds—usually. In Israel, however,<br />

nothing is easy. Carrying around loads of traveler’s checks is great for avoiding opening up a<br />

bank account. But you’ll still have to stand in line at the bank for hours waiting to get them<br />

cashed. Also, you can’t overdraft on a traveler’s check.<br />

Credit Cards<br />

Credit cards are great!!! Everybody takes them—except for developing film. Buy now, and your<br />

folks pay later! Can you beat it? If your Visa account is overdrawn, pay it off your American<br />

Express! Wow! Isn’t it great to pretend that you have money?<br />

Sending Money Abroad<br />

Forget it. By the time it gets here, every middleman imaginable has taken his share. Bank<br />

transfers under $100 take three weeks; over $100 doesn’t have a prayer of arriving e oreju v.


Health<br />

If you don’t have at least one intestinal crisis, you’ve wasted your year. Too much stomach<br />

medicine is not enough. Let it be a social thing, dispensing Pepto-Bismol. And cherish the rare<br />

moment when it all runs smoothly.<br />

For more serious afflictions, don’t worry! You’re right across the street from the finest medical<br />

institution in the Middle East. Just bring a book when you sit in their emergency room. Like War<br />

and Peace.<br />

Safety and Insurance<br />

What do you want? Mob riot coverage? Make sure that your policy covers rocks thrown both by<br />

Palestinian insurgents and by Ultra-Orthodox Jews.<br />

Packing<br />

Take everything you own. Completely disregard all airline restrictions. Remember, if you forget<br />

anything, Uncle Jack and Aunt Bessie can always bring it over when they come with the Hadassah<br />

group. They’re staying at the Hyatt, don’t you know, so you’ll see them plenty. And did I tell you<br />

about their new house? Like you’ve never seen! And I heard from Sadie that ...<br />

Climate<br />

God resides in Jerusalem, so when you complain about the parching heat in summer He takes it<br />

to heart. That’s why the winter is much colder than you planned, with plenty of wind and rain.<br />

You’ll never figure out how this city ran out of water in a siege. You’ll probably be travelling in<br />

Europe in both October and April, when the seasons switch, so you’ll be completely disoriented<br />

when you return.<br />

Planning Your Trip<br />

Getting There<br />

Chanting “Dov Friedlander is God,” the throngs of eager American students swarmed the El A1<br />

747 fully prepared for the gruelling transatlantic flight. Three hours later, still on the ground at<br />

JFK, the intrepid overseas-students-to-be had been Jewish Geographied to exhaustion. Revived<br />

by pillowfights, impromptu Hebrew classes, and gourmet airline cuisine, we settled back to<br />

thoroughly enjoy the 12-hour flight. Some reminisced of home; many thought of the year ahead;<br />

all wrestled with the profound issues before them; to sleep or not to sleep? After hours of sheer<br />

bliss, the altitude-fried denizens of Economy Class disembarked, senseless, into the glory that is<br />

Ben Gurion International Airport. The joy of our arrival was made complete by the appearance of<br />

large trucks to carry our battered, bruised, and identically colored duffel bags to the University.<br />

In the buses to our well-appointed dorms, we each mouthed a silent prayer thanking the Hebrew<br />

University for looking after us so well. We settled into our seats and, wired to the gills,<br />

contemplated the exciting year to come.<br />

Summer Ulpan<br />

It is 7:30 am. Your alarm goes off and you try your hardest to ignore it, but the annoying ringjust<br />

won’t go away. It takes you a second to recall where you are and convince yourself you’re not<br />

dreaming. It’s real, very real—you are in Israel and you are rising at an absurd hour for an Ulpan<br />

class.<br />

Think way back to around May of <strong>1987</strong>. You’ve been accepted to the Hebrew University of<br />

Jerusalem on the One Year Program and you’re going to spend one fun-filled year abroad. But<br />

first you must attend the two month Summer Ulpan to prepare for Your Year In Israel. So what<br />

exactly is this Ulpan thing? Well, I’m not quite sure but I know we’ll be learning Hebrew and it<br />

should be a lot of fun.<br />

Looking back, one must distinguish between Ulpan classes and the fun. The two just don’t go<br />

together. Sitting in an unairconditioned room for four hours a day during a very nasty heatwave<br />

was not fun. Being harassed for not doing your homework by a teacher younger than you was not<br />

fun. Being switched to a lower class because you seem to be inept was not fun. I think it is fair to<br />

say that Hebrew class was not the primary source of all the good times we experienced that<br />

summer.<br />

If you think carefully you’ll remember where the fun came from. Yes, that’s right—Givat Ram,<br />

affectionately known as Givat Scum. Givat Ram, an experience of a lifetime, a characterbuilding<br />

two months during which you lived the unbelievable. For two months you were tested to<br />

see how far you could be pushed before committing a terrible act of violence. Your room was an<br />

oversized closet. Your showers were cold trickles of water. Your Kraft Dinner was shared with<br />

the five million stray cats who called Givat Scum home. If you were lucky, as a show of<br />

appreciation you acquired ringworm from these cats. For the elite who were placed on the<br />

bottom level, walking up those stairs was an added bonus. Not to mention the three mile hike<br />

from the front gate down to the dorms. Boy, what fun!<br />

While all these memories will stay with us forever, everyone must agree that the single most<br />

exciting part of Givat Ram was the fighting, screaming, scratching, crawling, pushing, pulling,<br />

shoving and falling that went on without fail each morning when all one thousand of us tried to<br />

get on a single Egged bus hoping to get to class on time. This is something I know I’ll miss when<br />

I’m back home.<br />

For those who managed to get on the bus without being maimed, Ulpan awaited. Shalom, ma<br />

shlomech? Wow, that was great. I can speak Hebrew. Yes, but soon the novelty wore off and<br />

boredom set in. You began to look for any excuse not to attend class. And God forbid you should<br />

miss class for reasons other than your own death. Try explaining to the Ulpan Police that you<br />

didn’t go to class today because you just didn’t feel like it. Ha!<br />

All these great memories of the summer helped spice up those tedious hours spent in the<br />

classroom. The amazing trips organized for us by OSA, congregating in the cafeterias during<br />

breaks, meeting people, sitting at an outside cafe on Ben Yehuda, or just hanging out—these are<br />

what we’ll always remember about Summer Ulpan. Despite all we put up with, if asked to do it<br />

again, I would answer without hesitation—betach!<br />

A View from Lebanon Naji Majdalawi,<br />

I came to Israel in order to study and try to live a life which is completely different from the life<br />

that I lived in my homeland, Lebanon, and my home city, Beirut.<br />

Everything was new for me. It was a little bit difficult to get used to all these interesting new<br />

things but these difficulties passed after two or three weeks. One example of these things was to<br />

study on Sunday in the Summer Ulpan. The Sunday class was so boring at the beginning, but<br />

later on it became beseder. On Shabbat it is a little bit difficult in Israel: the market is closed, even<br />

no buses. It was hard for me to get used to the new kind of bread. But the most difficult thing was<br />

that I couldn’t get in contact with my parents, either by telephone or by direct mail.<br />

Perhaps there were many difficulties, but what were the interesting things that I liked? I made<br />

many friends from all the world and from different religions: Jews, Christians, and Muslims, and<br />

it was very nice to study with them in peace. I heard so many languages as well. For me it was nice<br />

to practice my Hebrew and improve my English and not to forget my Arabic.<br />

I love the Hebrew University, the teachers and their methods of teaching. I love the new<br />

language, which is the sister of my first language, Arabic. I forgot something called War, and I<br />

forgot something called East Beirut and West Beirut. On the other hand, I learned something<br />

called East Jerusalem and West Jerusalem.<br />

Finally, I want to thank my advisor, Moshe Fass, Israel Roi’s office, and all the teachers because I<br />

really loved them and I wish all the success to the Hebrew University and to Eretz Yisrael, and I<br />

hope it will receive what it is missing here, and missing in my country, Lebanon: Shalom—Peace.

If you thought that Givat Ram was bad in the summer, try it in the<br />

winter. The overriding theme of Winter Ulpan was the cold.<br />

Everything was cold—our rooms, the showers, the constant wind<br />

and rain, the Israelis on our halls trying to study for exams, the<br />

antique kerosene heaters, and the walk to the gate when we missed<br />

the 28 Aleph; and who among us has never missed a 28 Aleph? But<br />

despite being chilled to the bone, we Second Semester students<br />

soon learned the simple pleasures of Winter Ulpan: making that<br />

7:35 am bus, eating cheesetoast every day for breakfast and lunch,<br />

making it to the bank or post office before it closed, sunning at the<br />

beaches of Tel Aviv and Eilat, getting lucky in the housing lottery,<br />

discovering mail in the daily stampede to the Goldsmith<br />

mailboxes, and complaining non-stop about the inhuman<br />

conditions at Givat Ram. And, of course, learning Elebrew.<br />

Talent Show<br />

o o<br />

As the long-awaited Talent Show/End of Ulpan Party approached we found it necessary to<br />

prepare for the evening’s festivities. At the Mt. Scopus makolet we purchased a bottle of Sprite<br />

and two bottles of three-shekel Israeli vodka. Little did we know what a dangerous investment<br />

three-shekel Israeli vodka would prove to be.<br />

Without delay, the fun began. We gathered in the pit and, shot glasses in hand, drank to our<br />

hearts’ desires, if not to our stomachs’. We were soon travelling, arm in arm, singing, to Club 12<br />

1/2. As people piled in, the DJ began to play some tunes. Suddenly I found myself on stage doing<br />

a small rap for the assembled audience. For the next five minutes, my hands, feet, body, and<br />

mouth performed for the crowd without the approval of my brain. I was finally kicked off the<br />

stage by everyone’s favorite kinda guy, Gil, and the real talent show began.<br />

For the next hour or so we were entertained by acts of great talent from around the world. We<br />

were overwhelmed by If I Were a Rich Man, regaled by Psycho Killer, moved by Australian arias,<br />

and wowed by a true South-of-the-Border rendition of La Bamba. And of course, Danny and<br />

Laurie, the evening’s MC’s, put on quite a show themselves.<br />

But when we thought it was all over, the music began to play and we danced through the night<br />

with the wild abandon so typical of overseas students. A true show of unity: all of us Ulpaners<br />

dancing together without a thought of our upcoming finals. Finally around three or four in the<br />

morning we retired to our rooms, took cold showers, and passed out for the next six days. Truly<br />

an unforgettable evening. Only in Israel.<br />

How many times have students run to Tel Aviv for the day, passed through it on the number<br />

28, or dropped some agurot in an outreached hand waiting at the entrance?<br />

City to city trips brought about the same excitement of venturing towards another sea,<br />

another mountain, or another kibbutz, and the return climb to Jerusalem reminded us of the<br />

nature of the city in which we live, that we so often take for granted.<br />

Givat Ram<br />

When you look back on the overseas programs ten years from now, many memories will fade<br />

into the deep dark recesses of your mind, and only certain obscure images will remain. We have<br />

included “The Givat Ram Blues” in the yearbook lest you forget those wonderful Givat Ram<br />

days, when we all formed friendships and attempted, between suntanning and partying, to learn<br />

what Hebrew we could.<br />

Those days are already far away, and they will only grow dimmer and dimmer. We may have<br />

complained loudly about the cats, the bus ride, the cats, the terrible showers and toilets, the cats,<br />

and, oh yes, those #!!!! stairs. Even so, underneath our complaints we were smiling, because we<br />

were having so much damn fun.<br />

The Big Move<br />

Word had been circulating about Givat Ram for weeks: “The Big Move . . . The Big Move is<br />

coming . . . Are you ready for The Big Move?” I began to grow anxious in anticipation of the<br />

ominous-sounding event. Just what would it be like? Would my personal belongings survive?<br />

Would I?<br />

Soon it was a mere week until The Big Move. An orientation meeting was called—my heart<br />

skipped a beat. I knew that OYP orientation meetings heralded events of tremendous import.<br />

The Elef Dorms veritably shook with tension. The meeting only increased anxiety and confusion.<br />

I barely slept those nights preceding The Big Move.<br />

And then it was upon us. Looking back I can recall hysteria, heat, exhaustion, and profound<br />

boredom. The stern, dignified look the Inspector gave me will remain forever burnt into my<br />

memory. I melted before her gaze. And with her “beseder” my heart leapt—I was free of Givat<br />

Ram forever!<br />

As I shlepped my amazingly heavy duffles up to the bus, weaker OYP students lay sprawled along<br />

the path, their baggage beside them. They clawed at my legs, begging for help. Their luggage was<br />

far too heavy. Pretending not to notice, I held my head high and walked onward. I reached the line<br />

of proud but exhausted students who had made it this far. And I waited, and waited. Two hours<br />

later I was on the bus, insulated by tons of baggage.<br />

I recall my first sight of the Mount Scopus campus. Its tower rose over the horizon as the sun<br />

shone off its crown. Others crowded about me as the sea lapped against the hull of our ship.<br />

Deposited at Resnick dorms, I made it to the housing office. There I was all but physically abused<br />

as my roommate and I begged not to be given the room off the bathroom. “I’m allergic to stool<br />

odor,” he shouted. It was to no avail.<br />

We walked, numbed, to our new room and opened the door. We felt at first fear, then<br />

exhileration, then suspense, then worry, anxiety, relief, joy, ecstasy, indignation, anger, rage,<br />

indifference, apathy, satisfaction, resigned existentialist angstless Zen calm. Then we were very<br />

We had survived The Big Move.<br />

Dorm Life: Not a Day of Peace<br />

7:00 am — My alarm doesn’t go off, but it’s ok because the kind, fat cleaning woman subtly<br />

raises her voice and bashes her cleaning instruments into my door. I lie in bed and dream about<br />

Saturdays when she’s not around and I can sleep past 7:00 am.<br />

7:01 am — I drag myself off my prison cot. I run to the bathroom only to find that I have once<br />

again lost the morning toilet paper race. It’s a very strange phenomenon. There’s not even a shred<br />

of that green sandpaper left. Someone must have taken it. Yet there’s not a peep on the floor, all<br />

the doors are closed and I just know someone is lying in bed with an empty bladder and three rolls<br />

of toilet paper, one of which is rightfully mine.<br />

7:02 am — I play charades with the fat cleaning woman and after 45 excruciatingly painful<br />

seconds she blurts out something to the effect of “Allah shaba daba doo” and hands over a roll of<br />

T.P.<br />

7:10 am — I return to my room and open my closet. It’s totally empty. My friends have struck<br />

again. Yes, while I was sleeping those savage raiders invaded ... but wait! Something catches my<br />

eye. Oh, joy. They didn’t take everything. My dirty tennis clothes are still in a ball at the bottom<br />

of my closet. I find buried treasure at the bottom of my laundry bag: two semi-clean socks. I’m<br />

set. just have to brush my teeth and I’m outta here.<br />

Oh roommate . . . oh roommate . . . W hat’s this brown guck at the bottom of our sink?<br />

“Oh, I was just waxing my legs. Run the water. It should slide right down.” Right. The only thing<br />

that ever slid right down were my contacts.<br />

Now who’s that pounding on my door? The cleaning woman has already left. Oh, it’s Shlomo the<br />

Handyman.<br />

$ “Kol beseder bacheder?”<br />

Sink, meet Shlomo. Shlomo, meet sink. Roommate, meet Shlomo and sink. Goodbye, Shlomo,<br />

roommate, and sink. Have fun. I have a test.<br />

10:30 am — I run back to my room for a mail check. Like an idiot I always think today’s the day. I<br />

can prove to everyone that I do have friends outside the walls of Jerusalem. The tension mounts<br />

as I pass fellow students in the courtyard reading their mail. I make it to the door with bated<br />

breath. I open it for a wenchy girl with 12 letters. I race down the stairs wide-eyed. I whip open<br />

my mailbox and there it is, that orange and white envelope, for the third time this month.<br />

Laughing at me. I slam the box closed. If I just leave it here maybe it will slowly disintegrate. If<br />

not I’ll just put it in someone else’s box tomorrow. I leave for my next class.<br />

6:30 pm — Back for dinner on the hall. I open the refrigerator to see what I can throw together.<br />

Perhaps a brown pepper with bruised tomato. Sounds appetizing. Forget dinner—I’ll just take a<br />

shower.<br />

6:35 pm — Excuse me, does anyone know what happened to the hot water?<br />

“Just let it run for six or seven hours. It’ll warm up.”<br />

7:30 pm — I finally get to hang with my friends after not seeing them all day. We laugh, we joke,<br />

we sing, we hear a knock. A voice from the other side.<br />

“I cannot bear it anymore. We are serious students in this country. We have tests in two months.<br />

If you want to yell, please to yell quietly.”<br />

I make a deal—I’ll be quiet if she gives me a roll of toilet paper. Not a day of peace .. . Lila tov.

Lower Re snick<br />

Lower Resnick is the area in the Resnick dorms where very few One Year Programmers live and<br />

even fewer venture to visit. To go past the supermarket steps is just too much of a mission, and<br />

besides, “why should we go all the way down there? It’s much easier for you to come up to us<br />

here.”<br />

For those fortunates who did actually make the journey this past year it was as though they had<br />

just climbed Mount Sinai. Huffing and puffing they proudly declared, “Whew—made it!”<br />

Congratulations. You just walked one quarter of the way to Idelson.<br />

But except for—or perhaps because of—the lack of visitors venturing down under, “Lower<br />

Resnick” has truly been a multi-cultural experience for overseas students. Not only has it been<br />

possible for us to hike up that two minute walk whenever we desired, but it was also nice to know<br />

that there was always a room awaiting us to which we could return whenever we wanted to<br />

escape the North American Ghetto.<br />

It was a place that we called home for the year, and in this place we were given the great<br />

f h oh! Here they come! Is it a softball team? A<br />

ist those fun-loving guys from the third floor of<br />

esnick 2 who call themselves “Kibbutz Dati.”<br />

lost of us came from the “ religious floor” at Givat<br />

am. Our home towns range from Los Angeles to<br />

oronto to Sydney. We are a constitutional<br />

^operative: what’s mine is mine, yours is yours, but<br />

jrs is ours. While dishes, cutlery, and food is<br />

lared by all, household appliances and personal<br />

tides of clothing are off limits (however, on<br />

tcasion Bennett is found wearing someone elSe’s<br />

lose friendships have formed on the hall, and<br />

ibbutz members have participated together on<br />

any of the year’s activities: Joseph, DBA, political<br />

:hers. Late night card games, early morning<br />

inyans, and Shabbos-around-the-Country are<br />

must be mentioned that although each resident of<br />

le hall is an official “Kibbutz Dati Member,” each<br />

also an individual in his own right. Although we<br />

/e together, we don’t necessarily share the same<br />

toughts on Israel. Judaism, and life,<br />

his year abroad was truly special. Special times are<br />

Shmira<br />

Wh’at would one expect the overseas student to prefer doing on a cold, windy, rainy night at 2:<br />

in the morning? You may guess drinking at the Rock, cramming for an exam, or partaking<br />

other indoor activities inappropriate to mention in a publication of this nature. But these guess<br />

are all incorrect, for the Hebrew University student will be found in a small tin cubicle, arm<br />

with a flashlight, protecting his fellow students from harm in the fulfillment of his obligation<br />

shmira.<br />

Two or three times during the year, the Hebrew U student will head over to Resnick 8 or Idelsc<br />

42 to recieve his assignment. It may be a simple task like guarding the gate ne<<br />

Goldsmith—ideal for socialites and gossipmongers. This strategic position enables the shomt<br />

to see who is going out with whom, and more importantly who is returning with whom.<br />

The assignment might be a more challenging one. For instance, guarding the car gate. Durin<br />

any given 4-hour session, the average shomer must get out of his cubicle, open the gate at<br />

check I.D. cards and license plates of incoming vehicles around 65 times. This job is especial!<br />

fun in the rain.<br />

You may have to guard Lower Resnick and check the bus station periodically for suspicion<br />

objects. Personally I have only found suspicious students with too much alcohol in the!<br />

bloodstreams. But checking the bus stop is a necessary job not to be taken lightly.<br />

If you’re lucky, you get to walk around with a walkie-talkie like oneof the undercover securifl<br />

guys at the airport. It’s important to dress the part if you are privileged enough to be on walkie<br />

talkie duty. You must try to emulate Don Johnson to the best of your ability to even hope<br />

receive this prestigious assignment.<br />

Shmira can be a lot of fun, especially if your partner is Israeli. Not only do you get a chance<br />

brush up on your Hebrew, but you can listen to a 4-hour tirade on why Americans are inferiorte<br />

Israelis. Also, it’s a pleasant sense of familiarity when you recognize the people harassingyouii<br />

the Baritone.<br />

Shmira is, of course, an important job. Should danger come to Mt. Scopus, your shomrimati<br />

always there to protect and serve. I sleep well at night knowing that no terrorist death ninja,no<br />

heavily armored assault column, not even Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and tbi<br />

Incredible Hulk could get by those unsung heroes of shmira. Truly, this is the Israel Experience<br />

Keeping in Touch<br />

Telephones<br />

Ode to an old friend? At the mercy of a notorious foe? Succumbing to psychotic mood wings?<br />

Aesthetically unattractive yet linguistically talented in four idioms. Undependable, however<br />

indispensable. Our only link to Western civilization.<br />

No matter in which language: telephone, el telefono, la telephone, hatelefone—an overseas<br />

student must realize that there is no evading the use of this traumatizing apparatus. I<br />

would refer to it as the “idiot box” but my parents have reserved that title for the<br />

television. You’ll notice the parallel between telephone and television in that they both<br />

cause parents heartache. Also, they both begin with “tele.”<br />

Many a night students can be seen in the phone room in Resnick 5 as late as 4:00 in the morning<br />

punching, kicking and cursing phones because there’s an important call coming in from<br />

abroad—no doubt a girl or boy friend—and the expletive deleted phones aren’t working. How is<br />

it possible that all seven phones are broken?!? Even more discouraging are the queues, at times as<br />

long as 25 strong. And you’re number 2 6 .1 also get a real charge watching students freak out<br />

when the asimon machine is de-asimoned.<br />

If the walls in the phone rooms could talk the conversations would be enough to fill a best-seller<br />

book: The Trials and Tribulations of Telephone Calling (soon to be available in the<br />

Akademon for 85 NIS). Here are a few of the more prominent entries:<br />

“Daddy, I love you, you’re the greatest and I’m 1,000 shekels overdrawn and I... uh, Daddy?<br />

Daddy?” (No doubt a severe disconnection!)<br />

“Grandma, I know you want me to come home and go to med school like cousin Marvin but I’ve<br />

decided to join the army. Why? Because green is my favorite color."<br />

“Jon, I’m sorry but this long distance relationship can’t continue like this. I think it would be<br />

better if we could see other people . . . What do you mean you’ve already started to?”<br />

The behavior of students as they meekly converge upon the imposing blue-green phones is quite<br />

a sociological phenomenon. They no longer memorize Gafni or Nisan notes. Rather, the most<br />

rewarding challenge has become memorizing the taped recordings of the infamous “ 18”<br />

overseas operator. I know that my Arabic has certainly improved. Maybe I should stick to writing<br />

letters.<br />

The One Year Pasta<br />

Many equate the acronym “OYP” with the One Year Program. Yet in terms of providing one<br />

with nourishment during the year, these three letters take on a new significance: the One Year of<br />

Pasta. Call it what you like—spaghetti, macaroni, or noodles—it is all composed of the same<br />

basic ingredients of wheat and water formed into unique shapes of starch. Pasta serves as a most<br />

eloquent dish in the luncheon lexicon, a basic component of every OYPer’s diet.<br />

Pasta’s popularity stems from its versatility and ease of preparation. Considering the availability<br />

of cooking facilities in one’s kitchen, pasta ranks high as a quick, easy meal for students on the<br />

go. Besides, who ever heard of wonderpot cooking before reading the program’s handbook<br />

anyway?<br />

Culinary success proves an achievable objective when cooking pasta. If one can boil water, half<br />

the battle is already won. The momentum to continue on to Noodle Nirvana is left to one’s taste<br />

and imagination.<br />

My attempts at inventiveness have led to such creations as cold noodles in a peanut sauce and<br />

spicy eggplant pesto over corkscrew noodles. The results have elicited high approval from many a<br />

connoisseur, especially my kitchenophobic and freeloading roommate.<br />

From a creative, economic, and nutritional standpoint, pasta provides the OYP student a<br />

memorable palate pleaser. I hope the trials and jubilations associated with pasta this year have<br />

contributed immensely to everyone’s Israel experience.<br />

Food<br />

I set out to write the great American novel but ended up working for the yearbook as an unpaid<br />

restaurant critic. W hat’s worse, I’m stuck in the cafeteria section. Things are just not looking<br />

good for me. My assignment: the cafeterias of Mount Scopus. It would not be a good day.<br />

“New York, Neeeew Yooork!” The last refrain of that tune just wouldn’t go away. Oh Frank<br />

Sinatra, you have glorified a great city, buddied with mobsters, and lent your name to the<br />

greatest food emporium our fair school has to offer. But like all great eateries, “Frankie’s” has<br />

its quirks—like the Chinese chickem One is always given the choice of harif or bli harif, yet it<br />

always tastes the same. Or those incomparable french fries: no matter if they’re fresh from the<br />

fryer or left overnight, that trademark limpness is omnipresent. Nonetheless, Frank’s remains<br />

quite popular among the lunchtime crowd.<br />

A quick jog across the Nancy Reagan Plaza (in solidarity therewith, my review was cleared ahead<br />

of time with Dr. Love, my astrologer) and I walk down to the Education building and the location<br />

of my second meal—the Stark Cafeteria. “Stark” is the theme borrowed from the quality of the<br />

food. The schnitzel here is unique, a thin slab of chicken fried in bread crumbs with absolutely no<br />

effect on the human taste buds. A blue ribbon panel of biochemists has yet to explain this<br />

amazing dish served up hundreds of times a day, year after year, by a crack team of chefs who, in<br />

all fairness, brew the best matzah ball soup on campus.<br />

With lead in my belly I slowly ambled outside and over to the Social Science wing, there to review<br />

a light meal in the “Veggie Cafe.” Now this place is no Off the Square, but in my opinion offers<br />

the tastiest meal for the best price. A fine if unchanging selection of cheese, potato, and spinach<br />

pies is available to the hungry student. Lifeless round pizza slices (just like mom used to pull out<br />

of the toaster oven) are also a local delicacy. A big thumbs down, though, for the odor that the<br />

Veggie Cafe wafts out into the hallway. A scent not unlike that found around a backyard<br />

compost heap seems to put off hungry but weak-stomached students. All in all, you won’t starve<br />

on Mt. Scopus, but that’s as far as I’m willing to go. Say, anyone want to go to Norman’s for a<br />

burger?


Cheesetoast<br />

Food<br />

My alarm clock sounded at 6:30am with the same annoying noise<br />

capable of waking up the entire population of Resnick, except<br />

me...usually. On this particular day, however, the immunity that I had<br />

developed to the threat of my alarm was taking a vacation. My hand<br />

reached out from under the covers, and thus began the first waking<br />

hour of my day. 1quickly dressed and prepared myself for the first day<br />

of first semester and my first cheesetoast since Ulpan.<br />

It w^s a long and painful wait through the 24 days of October break.<br />

Recurring visions of the last day of Ulpan haunted me, as I<br />

remembered the six IDF soldiers who had pulled me away from the<br />

kiosk in the university and confiscated the sleeping bag that I had set<br />

up there. At night my dreams allowed me to escape into a utopian<br />

world in which the only ingredients that existed were pita, cheese, and<br />

tomatoes. Cheesetoasts would hang from every tree. I would awake<br />

with a smile on my face, but realizing that it was only a dream,<br />

depression would set in once again, as I returned to the reality of my<br />

cheesetoastlessness. The pangs of withdrawal plagued my every<br />

waking hour.<br />

Finally, the long-awaited moment had arrived. Not having slept much<br />

the night before in anticipation of this day, I entered the university<br />

and waited restlessly next to the kiosk. My suppliers finally arrived<br />

and greeted their best customer with nervous smiles, remembering<br />

the havoc I had wreaked the previous month. “Cheesetoast,<br />

bevakasha,” I eagerly blurted out, as my daily routine from Ulpan<br />

reasserted itself. Knowing that I meant business, they quickly<br />

prepared three cheesetoasts, as I unconsciously drooled onto my<br />

shoes. The aroma of melting cheese, its familiar sizzling sound, and<br />

the churning of my stomach were unbearable. I threw myself over the<br />

counter and ransacked the kiosk, my jaws frantically slicing into pita<br />

after pita in an orgy of frenzied, slobbering self-gratification.<br />

I sat on the floor, picking the few remaining gobs of cheese off my<br />

soiled clothes, and pitied my friends and family at home, who'couldn’t<br />

experience the Nirvana that I had discovered. “What did you do in<br />

Israel,” they will ask me, and, as I lean back in my chair, a nostalgic,<br />

one-word response will come to mind: “cheesetoast.”<br />

Goldsmith Building<br />

A small, unintimidating building perched high atop Mount Scopus, Goldsmith (or Goldschmidt,<br />

depending on which language you’re speaking) was our home away from home. That this one<br />

little building could serve so many purposes to so many people is a tribute to the genius of Israeli<br />

engineering.<br />

Adorned with colorful posters plastering its walls, both inside and out—“Hiking trip orientation<br />

tonight at 9:00 pm. Everyone must attend!” or “Joseph Cast: Dress rehearsal tomorrow night”<br />

or “Need help with your Hebrew? Experienced tutor available”—Goldsmith was the nexus of<br />

the information network for overseas students. If one wanted to know what was happening, they<br />

need only walk up the stairs, past the earring and bracelet market, and through those gates, and<br />

all questions were answered. That is, if you were able to squeeze your way through the hundreds<br />

of people that seemed to crowd the entrance and narrow hallways. And if you were able to pass<br />

the stringent security check.<br />

The Goldsmith Library, where day and night a class called Social Hour 101 was held, the<br />

cafeteria, and the ever available staff of OSA all serve to broaden the scope of Goldsmith’s<br />

functions. A communications center as sophisticated as any on Mount Scopus, Goldsmith<br />

boasts both mailboxes and generally functioning telephones. The Goldsmith building is an<br />

administrative powerhouse, where decisions reached in low whispers over bottomless files shake<br />

Mount Scopus to its very fundament. Goldsmith’s permanent Activities Fair in the front<br />

courtyard kept many a student from slipping into apathy and ignorance. OYPers, FYPers,<br />

Freshmen, and Mechinistim all found their niche in Goldsmith’s warm, accepting halls.<br />

But Goldsmith was more than just an information service, a social center, a post office, food<br />

dispensation establishment, and administrative bastion. The Goldsmith building had another<br />

use. Try real hard to remember what that one was. Oh, yes. We had classes there, too!<br />

Seminars<br />

It is hard to become an expert on the Middle East. However, with the series of seminars planned<br />

throughout the year, OYP students were given the chance to really broaden their insights.<br />

The series began during Summer Ulpan with the Arab-Israeli Conflict Seminar which explored<br />

the roots of the conflict, the territories, the role of the Superpowers, and terrorism. For those<br />

who wanted to experience Israeli life close up, there was September’s Israeli Society Seminar,<br />

where students spent a Shabbat with families in a settlement town, moshav or kibbutz in the<br />

Gaza Strip. Having taken place in the summer, long before the Intifada began, OYPers got the<br />

chance to experience a side of Israeli life seldom portrayed in media coverage of the region.<br />

The highlight of fall semester was November’s Media in Israel Seminar, which allowed students<br />

to actually experience how a news event is covered in Israel, as well as learn about problems<br />

faced by reporters and editors by prominent Western correspondents currently serving in<br />

Israel. Again, taking place several weeks before the uprisings in the territories, students were<br />

given valuable tools to analyze the Western press’ coverage of events as they developed.<br />

During the spring, there were two very timely seminars plus a historical one. The Israel Is-<br />

Real?! Seminar in March brought experts in Israel’s economy, politics, and army to OYPers in<br />

lively question-and-answer sessions. In April, in conjunction with Yom HaShoah, Beit Hillel<br />

sponsored a three-day seminar complete with movies and lecturers, culminating in a national<br />

service at Yad Vashem with President Chaim Herzog and Prime Minister Itzak Shamir. In<br />

partial response to the battering Israel’s image has received back home by the press, May’s<br />

Activism Seminar, held in the Jerusalem Pine Forest, dealt with the difficult question, “what<br />

are we going to tell them when we get back?” The highlight of the program was a West Bank<br />

university lecturer who proved to OYPers just how difficult it is to confront an anti-Israel<br />

speaker. Clearly, all these seminars helped the overseas students better understand and<br />

appreciate their year in Israel.<br />

Bet Mid rash<br />

Marc Krell<br />

When I decided to come to Hebrew University on the One Year Program, I knew that it would be a great chance for me<br />

to have a “cultural experience” in Eretz Yisrael, a chance to become part of the society, instead of just looking in from<br />

the outside. I was excited about both the education I would receive and the opportunity to get to know Israelis. For me,<br />

that exposure was not limited to meeting Israelis in the street, thanks to a wild American dude from L.A. with whom I<br />

learned Torah in the Bet Midrash program.<br />

This program brought together overseas students and students from Yeshivot in Israel, and allowed us to discover<br />

many facets of Judaism with people to whom we could relate. Every Monday night, small learning groups discussed<br />

Jewish ethics and law, religious customs and daily practice, prayer, and more. We were taught by learned Rabbis and<br />

other knowledgeable Jewish men and women. The majority of the students were involved in a special tutorial<br />

program, getting together one on one with students from Yeshiva backgrounds. It was a chance not only to learn<br />

about the religion on an informal basis, but to make a new friend with whom to discover what it is really like to live a<br />

Jewish life in Israel.<br />

I developed a lasting friendship with my tutor that went far beyond the Hecht Synagogue, in both a personal and a<br />

religious sense. I had found a friend with whom I could spend Shabbat in Jerusalem, and to whom I could turn to for<br />

anything. The Bet Midrash program enabled me to get the cultural experience I was looking for in a very special way.

Soviet Jewry<br />

Awareness of the plight of Soviet Jewry has increased on campus over this past semester.<br />

February saw the beginning of a revival of Soviet Jewry activism when ten Hebrew University<br />

students joined many others at a reception in Lod to meet ex-Prisoner of Zion Alexei Magarik.<br />

Throughout the month of March, approximately twenty students attended a Soviet Jewry<br />

activism training program sponsored by the World Union of Jewish Students in conjunction<br />

with OSA. The program included accounts of life in refusal in the Soviet Union by recent olim, a<br />

historical perspective of anti-Semitism in the USSR, powerful videos, and programming ideas<br />

for students to bring home to their respective campuses.<br />

In April, a group of students organized a Soviet Jewry letter writing booth outside the Goldsmith<br />

building. In a single morning, 149 postcards to refusniks Anna Chernobilskaya and Boris<br />

Goldberg were written.<br />

In our year in Israel, it is important for us to remember those who are not permitted to join us<br />

here. Hopefully our continued work will enable these and other Prisoners of Zion to be allowed<br />

to join us here in Israel in the near future. . T r , ,<br />

Volunteering<br />

To some, old age implies uselessness and depression. To others, however, it can be just the<br />

opposite. Myriam Mendilow, deeply affected by witnessing the neglect and degeneration of the<br />

elderly in various deprived Jerusalem neighborhoods, set the foundations for Life Line for the<br />

Old, Yad L'Kashish. This unique institution, which enables the elderly to regain their dignity in a<br />

productive and meaningful way, started in 1962 with 14 people and has grown to a beautiful<br />

community with hundreds of elderly members. Life Line for the Old has 14 workshops where<br />

elderly and disabled workers of many different ethnic groups spend time working in various<br />

handicrafts, from bookbinding and ceramics to metalwork and weaving.<br />

This year a number of Hebrew University students took the opportunity to volunteer at Yad<br />

L Kashish. These students worked side by side with the elderly and disabled in these workshops,<br />

and had the privilege of listening to these special people tell stories about their lives. Not only did<br />

these students provide an invaluable service to Life Line for the Old, but their participation also<br />

strengthened their affection, appreciation, and respect for the elderly.<br />

Historical Geography of<br />

Jerusalem<br />

A guided tour of Jerusalem? It meets only once a week? Memorize tourist sites—for a grade?<br />

Now this is a class I’ve gotta take, I thought to myself. There must be a catch. Maybe we have to<br />

sit through an additional lecture twice a week or spend 12 hours a week in the Armenian Quarter,<br />

or possibly, heaven forbid—write a term paper? My anxiety was only slightly relieved at the first<br />

class meeting. I arrived early with field notebook, pen, and map of the Old City of Jerusalem in<br />

hand, walking shoes on my feet. W hat’s this? No field trip? Two and a half hours of lecture from<br />

those twin titans of stimulating verbiage and veritable human dictionaries of the English<br />

language, Professors Ben-Arieh and Sapir? My fellow students and I were ecstatic to learn that<br />

this exercise in sleep-inducing speech patterns would only be repeated once more during the<br />

semester.<br />

The next Wednesday my three month odyssey of Jewish, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Muslim<br />

Jerusalem began. It seemed that every world power in the last 3,000 years has ruled our fair home<br />

town. Our class and the Monday Hebrew section were treated to some fascinating sites,<br />

intriguing explanations, and good times during the semester. We trekked from the City of David<br />

to the Tower of David and even to the historically elusive Tomb of David. We were even treated<br />

to a tour of the recent excavations along the western wall of the Temple Mount. Memorizing the<br />

boundaries of the Jewish Quarter, the changing layout of the city walls, and the chronological<br />

history of Jerusalem added to our appreciation of the city in which we live for the year.<br />

Concurrent with my appreciation of Jerusalem’s history was my observation of an incredible<br />

phenomenon occurring within my own class. Each class an attendance sheet was passed around<br />

to sign. To my own admittedly fallible human eyes, there was rarely in excess of twenty students<br />

present. Yet week after week the sheet would be returned to Professor Sapir or to that<br />

Rock’n’Roll Cub Scout, grad student Yossi Glass, with a full roster of all forty students’<br />

signatures. I guess the Church of the Dormition has lost its allure to tired students, and the<br />

intricacies of Mameluke architecture no longer send students into waves of excitement.<br />

I reflected on my semester in this course as I took the final exam in a room as crowded as<br />

Goldsmith library' on a Thursday night. Through it all I believe that Historical Geography of<br />

Jerusalem was one of the most interesting courses I have ever taken. Starting out with zero<br />

knowledge of the subject I emerged with a great understanding of that City of Gold which lies<br />

beneath my dorm building. “Hysterical” Geography, maybe—but I aced that sucker!<br />

The new Jewish Quarter in the Old City is a vital ingredient which adds<br />

to the flavors of Jerusalem. The winding stteets laid with chipped<br />

Jerusalem stone are bound to throw any tiyul into disorder. But getting<br />

lost in the Rova HaYehudi is an inevitable and memorable experience,<br />

adding to the mystery and personality of the Quarter.<br />

Those lucky enough to find their way above the streets to the terraces or<br />

rooftops are dazzled by an awe-inspiring view. The entire Old City is<br />

revealed, with the Mount of Olives, the City of David, and Mount Scopus<br />

in the background. Below, one looks over the Kotel, whose quiet<br />

presence and tragic history overwhelm and mystify all who stand before<br />

her.<br />

Beyond the architecture of the Rova is the distinct human element.<br />

Dozens of children laugh in the playgrounds, mischievously chasing fat<br />

cats or making faces at passers by. Another common sight is a mother<br />

strolling a baby with a handful of toddlers clinging to her or wandering<br />

nearby; behind her, two men walking slowly, oblivious to the commotion<br />

around them.<br />

On Friday evenings, sounds of prayer rise from many small synagogues,<br />

filling the air with tranquility. After prayer the family returns home for<br />

shabbat dinner; and in this meal lies the very essence of the Rova. There<br />

is no better way to acquaint oneself with the Rova than to visit the home<br />

of a family on erev Shabbat.<br />

At the shabbat table, the kindness and hospitality which greets each<br />

guest cannot be equalled. Whether one stays for a few hours or spends<br />

the entire shabbat, the experience is always a unique one. With new<br />

friends and new knowledge of observant Jewish family life, one acquires<br />

a more intimate and complete grasp of life in the Rova HaYehudi. The<br />

love of family and simple devotion to God is embedded in her spirit and is<br />

her heartbeat itself. These distinctive elements woven together make the<br />

Jewish Quarter into one of the most exciting and memorable parts of<br />

Jerusalem. Perhaps it is Jerusalem.<br />

At 5:00 am we rise, gulp down a cup of Turkish coffee and a handful of cookies, and we are off:<br />

the beginning of the day’s hike. It is almost futile to describe in words all the wonderful events<br />

that happen on a hike—burning toilet paper, bonfires at night, cooking dinner in the open, even<br />

mackerel spread. These are the special pleasures of the members of the Hiking Club. To us Israel<br />

is more than cosmopolitan cities and political debates; the wadis, deserts, and nachals show us<br />

what Israel is better than any bar or any speech. The Hiking Club has afforded us the opportunity<br />

to see what is truly the Land of Israel—beyond the disputes over borders to the shetach itself,<br />

from the mountains of Eilat to the hills of the Galilee. There is no better way to appreciate the<br />

true beauty of this country: there you stand, the sun setting over the desert, at the end of a 20<br />

Mount Sinai—Jebel<br />

Musa<br />

Climbing Mt. Sinai was one of the<br />

highlights of the OSA trip to the Sinai<br />

Desert. As we began the ascent. I was<br />

expecting something of a religious feeling<br />

to sweep over me, perhaps to relive<br />

whatever it was that had swept the<br />

Children of Israel. Well, the experience<br />

certainly did move me. Aerobically. Mt.<br />

Sinai is one of those incredibly steep<br />

mountains, ranging from difficult to<br />

deadly. I found myself thinking of Moses<br />

doing the climb—twice—and as the hike<br />

went on, my image of Moses changed.<br />

When we began, I saw him as elderly,<br />

bearded, in long flowing robes. By the end<br />

of the climb, he looked like a Ken doll:<br />

young, muscular, and well-biceped. I kept<br />

his robes on, though. A Speedo just<br />

wouldn’t cut it.<br />

As the climb went on, the climbers made<br />

jokes. We all recognized the triteness of<br />

our remarks, and wondered how many<br />

climbers before us had cracked the same<br />

lines.<br />

“Gee, no wonder Moses was pissed that<br />

he had to go up a second time.”<br />

“I’d rather make a golden calf than climb<br />

this damn mountain anytime.”<br />

“All this —for a bunch of laws?” And on<br />

and on . . .<br />

We sang songs like “Stairway to Heaven”<br />

through gasping breaths as we continued<br />

the treacherous climb upward. Here and<br />

there, we passed Greek Orthodox<br />

pilgrims, five times our age, out for an<br />

afternoon stroll.<br />

Once we reached the top, our sense of<br />

accomplishment was immeasurable. The<br />

view was magnificent. And then, all too<br />

soon, it was time to climb down. The<br />

climb downward was much easier, even<br />

pleasant. We quickly found ourselves in<br />

the desert, leaving the mountain behind<br />

us. As night fell, it became just another of<br />

the many mountains in the desert<br />

landscape.<br />

Is Jebel Musa really the mountain of our<br />

heritage? We have no proof that it is. If it<br />

is true that nothing that is good comes<br />

easy, however, then Mt. Sinai might very<br />

well be the site where our Torah was<br />

given. Either way, climbing Mt. Sinai was<br />

a feat in itself: for some religious, for<br />

others muscular, but unforgettable for all.<br />

Sea to Sea<br />

. . . And the Lord spoke unto his people, saying, “Ye shall walk from Sea to Sea, from the dawn<br />

until the night, and ye shall arrive safely.” So they heeded his word, and began from the Great<br />

Sea, the Mediterranean, filling a small bottle with the holy water from that sea. By night they<br />

wandered, with only the light of their torches to guide them. Like unto a pack of tourists they<br />

swarmed their campsite; yea, verily did they make camp for the night.<br />

And the talk and idle chatter ceased not there, and the excitement of God’s Chosen was great<br />

indeed. A wandering minstrel from out of the dark forest came, wherefore psalms around the<br />

bonfire were sung. As their father Jacob, each took themselves a stone for a pillow and laid<br />

themselves down.<br />

The Baritone<br />

On Friday, no one goes away for the weekend. No one. Everyone stays on campus to experience<br />

the Baritone. That’s Friday night at 11:00 pm. Everyone.<br />

Students rush to change into their best attire, grease their hair, and make sure to take their<br />

student cards. That’s right, their best attire.<br />

We arrive, smile cheerfully at the anticipating flood of Israelis waiting to be let in on a card, take<br />

them in, and smile goodbye. Cheerfully.<br />

There is music at the Baritone. Rock, disco, new wave. Oh, and funk. How could one forget funk.<br />

So, we dance among the nationalities, and become really thirsty. So we walk to the bar. For a<br />

drink. As we sip, we observe the smiling faces, the sweaty bodies, and the pick-up lines.<br />

3:00 am—the Baritone closes for another weekend. We go back to our dorms, reluctantly, and<br />

dream of next Friday night at this haven of high romance right here on our campus, the Baritone.<br />

A<br />

“Oh NO it’s a shnitzel attack! Shnitzel, shnitzel, gotta get my shnitzel—Help, please, move, I’m<br />

really in a hurry—Sir, yes ... sir? S ir... YO, BUTTHEAD!!! I’d like a shnitzel please, warm not<br />

frozen, lots of humus, chatzilim, salad, and also mitz tapuzim bli gaz. Todah, thank you, thank<br />

you ... AAAAAH ...”<br />

How often have you experienced this overpowering urge to race to a moadon for a feeding<br />

frenzy? Whether it’s shnitzel, cheesetoast, or a Big Macabee Attack, your local moadon is ready<br />

to serve you until any reasonable hour of the night—like 11:59. Clubs 11 and 15: loud-bad<br />

music in a friendly smoke-filled atmosphere. Whether it’s backgammon or baguettes, naknikiot<br />

or nicotine, when you need your fix on a busy night we’re the only game in town. Reopening<br />

soon.<br />

Social Committee<br />

l<br />

The Social Committee was quite active over the course of the year. Meeting weekly, the<br />

Committee planned events for all the overseas programs. In addition to a core group that<br />

devoted much time and energy all year, new faces would pop up every meeting, each one with new<br />

ideas for social events.<br />

The Committee organized many parties at the Baritone Disco on campus. The first party had a<br />

beach theme and everyone greased themselves up for some serious surfing action. The party was<br />

a great success and was a great way to splash in the beginning of the school year. For New Year’s<br />

Eve <strong>1988</strong> the Social Committee combined efforts with the Student Union to throw another<br />

blow-out bash at the Baritone. This time, the overseas crew mixed with Israelis. Everyone<br />

enjoyed the great music, champagne, sparklers and endless beers. In an attempt to integrate the<br />

Second Semester students with the oldtimers, a “Post-Purim, Pre-Pesach costume dance was<br />

held, raising enough money for the Social Committee to plan a mind-blowingly huge shindig for<br />

the end of the year.<br />

The work of the Social Committee was greatly appreciated throughout the year. Their<br />

enthusiasm and hard work, ideas and skills helped make life on campus as exciting as ever. May<br />

the members of the Social Committee continue to serve their home universites with equal<br />

devotion and energy.<br />

Joseph and the Am azing<br />

Technicolor D ream coat *<br />

Joseph began in a small room in Goldsmith with a group of seventy people thinking about a show<br />

which seemed light-years away. The next nine weeks of production proved to be the fastest and<br />

most exciting time of the first semester. *<br />

We set off on our production of Joseph with little knowledge of either our director or each other.<br />

As the weeks progressed, Michael Berl proved to be a skillful leader, and the cast congealed intoa<br />

very close, friendly group, working well together both onstage in Bet Hillel and offstage in<br />

Moadon 11. Somehow, we managed to Thinkjoseph and concentrate more than two months of<br />

constant rehearsal into an hour and ten minutes’ singing and dancing extravaganza which<br />

brought the house down.<br />

The nature of the show made it possible for everyone to become a star. The entire cast shared the<br />

stage and the limelight, applauding each other for a job well done.<br />

Joseph now rests on a shelf inside a videotape—and in our memories. The show proved to us<br />

that a Dream can come true through hard work and dedication. Joseph was this and more.<br />

Working on the show created a feeling of togetherness in the cast that will never be forgotten.<br />

Fiddler on the Roof Q O<br />

Take one cast of OYPers, Basp’s, and Mechinistim, add a director, a producer or two, a set<br />

depicting a Russian shtetl, a lighting crew, and a handful of Hasidic hats, and what have you got?<br />

A Fiddler on the Roof, this year’s second semester production, presented by OSA in conjunction<br />

with Beit Hillel. Performed to packed houses from May 29 to June 2, Fiddler on the Roof was a<br />

challenging production for both cast and crew, though under the expert direction of Michael<br />

Berl, it could not fail.<br />

For some two months, cast and crew drove friends, roommates, and each another mad with tales<br />

of rehearsals, while the walls of Beit Hillel rang with such popular numbers as If I were a Rich<br />

Man, Tradition, Matchmaker, and The Sabbath Prayer. Nightly rehearsals provided a chance for<br />

all to entertain and enjoy. Despite the unavoidable trauma and tension that sometimes beset us<br />

in the final few weeks, working on the production was a great opportunity to forge long-lasting<br />

friendships with a talented, international crowd.<br />

Thanks is due to everyone who made the production such a profitable and unforgettable<br />

experience. L’Chaim!<br />

Traif: Musical Crimes Against Humanity<br />

Rabbi Akiba was once asked to list his musical influences. The early Bay City Rollers swiped the<br />

number-one spot, God came in a close second, and then of course—there was Traif. Yes, Traif.<br />

The band which single-handedly redefined the word heresy, rocked the Kotel, and remaneuvered<br />

Jeff Seidel’s moral mechitza four degrees southwards, all in one Omer. Traif, the only ban to be<br />

excommunicated since Spinoza caught Ethel Merman with her pants down.<br />

So what, one might ask, is this Traif? Well, it’s just that. Perennially unclean, non-Kosher, and<br />

definitely not the kind of band you’d want circumcising your first born. Not even with a streidel.<br />

Traif is (listed alphabetically and, coincidentally, in order of progressive vulgarity): Charles<br />

Brettner, bass; Dave Chaskes, lead guitar: Mike Katz, rhythm guitar; Jon Lovenburger, drums;<br />

and Steven Schub, pancreas.<br />

But more than this, Traif epitomizes that very ethical cream and moral fiber which has earned<br />

the <strong>Rothberg</strong> School its eternal recognition among all great institutions of higher learning, like<br />

the University of Damascus and Nachmud’s Welding Institute on 3rd Avenue in Shechem. Yes,<br />

we have shown the world what five brain-dead Hebrew University students can do with the sole<br />

knowledge of three chords, no place to practice, little equipment and even less talent. Create a<br />

musical insurrection is what they can do. Danceable blasphemy! Succinctly, unjustified<br />

arrogance with a beat.<br />

The very fact that this band, which in America wouldn’t even be able to get work renovating<br />

Scott Baio’s tupperware, can play at every major venue in Jerusalem, win Jerusalem’s Battle of<br />

the Bands, and get reviewed in the Jerusalem Post—well, let’s just say that either there’s<br />

ultimately no justice left in the universe, or God is severely tone-deaf.<br />

Traif, if needed to be understood at all, must first be placed in proper perspective. Traif was a<br />

visual art form. We were meant to be seen, never heard, and God forbid smelled. We never<br />

wanted to be “liked.” Only loved or hated. Consciously, we went for the extremities. Extremely<br />

graphic, extremely provocative, controversial, offensive, obnoxious—all that, yes, but most<br />

importantly, we made you dance. Steven Schub<br />

Cool Breeze<br />

Cool Breeze was a band dedicated to the concept that a bunch of North Americans could get<br />

together and play good music in Israel and still have fun. The hard-edged-fold-rock-bluesreggae-jazz-ska<br />

band, formed by rhythm guitarist Mike Rubin and harmonica player Dave<br />

Pemstein, captured second place at the Thanksgiving Battle of the Bands in Jerusalem, propelled<br />

by Resa Leinwand’s exceptional lead vocals and Simeon Hyman’s superlative guitar work.<br />

Covering tunes by REM, the Dead, Talking Heads, Katrina and the Waves, Dylan, and U2, Cool<br />

Breeze went through almost as many studio drummers as Spinal Tap. Apparently spoiled by<br />

success, the band reached an untimely demise and lives on only in our hearts and in its<br />

“Diplomats for Jerry” Kissinger logo. It was fun while it lasted.<br />

Chess Club<br />

Questionable Humor<br />

One of the most exciting extracurricular activities this year was the Chess Club. Dozens of<br />

overseas students participated, and in the well-publicized tournament with Tel Aviv<br />

University, scores of students, both foreign and Israeli, turned out in thejerusalem Theatre<br />

to cheer on the bespectacled masters of the ancient game.<br />

Several members of the Council of Hebrew University Chess Knights (CHUCK) have gone on<br />

to the upper echelons of Israeli chess competition. We wish them luck, and thank them for<br />

one of the most exciting chess seasons ever at the Hebrew University.<br />

The DBA<br />

Here’s Fred bringing the ball upcourt... the pass goes over to “Can’t Make a Layup” Krell... Back<br />

to Fred ... Gordon fakes, drives to the lane and makes a beautiful pass to Ricky for two. What a<br />

play!<br />

No, folks, what you have just read was not the transcript of the NBC College Basketball Game of<br />

the Week. Rather, this is what the worlds’ finest basketball would sound like if the networks got<br />

smart and broadcast the hottest new commodity in sports, the DBA—the Diaspora Basketball<br />

Association.<br />

The league was created to fill a dire need in the OYP for intramural sports competition. The<br />

league began play last November, but the teams didn’t get much of a chance to display their<br />

talents. Rain and cold weather forced the postponement of many league games, and eventually<br />

led to the cancellation of league play until the second semester.<br />

Upon return from February vacation, DBA brass Jason Friedberg, Mark Robbins, and Noam<br />

Rotenberg worked to create a league that would make it through the semester. Apparently, they<br />

were successful. The DBA became a smoothly operating league, “one that I would be proud of,”<br />

according to NBA Commissioner David Stern. Teams battled to very close games, and the<br />

playoffs were an event unmatched in Israeli sports history. Mark Robbins<br />

Beit Hillel<br />

Hillel is a part of many of our Jewish experiences at our North American universities. Here at<br />

Hebrew U. Hillel continues to play a major role in our social and educational activities.<br />

This year Beit Hillel brought the best of TV news and sports programs to the campus. Major<br />

highlights included Ted Koppel’s special Nightline telecast from the Jerusalem Theatre, and the<br />

CBS documentary on Israel, 48 Hours. On the lighter side, there were free movies every week,<br />

ranging from Superman II to Hair.<br />

Theatre was an important part of Hillel’s programming. They co-sponsored both Joseph and his<br />

Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Fiddler on the Roof, as well as an English-speaking<br />

workshop.<br />

Hillel also arranged for weekly aerobic and modern dance classes, as well as an integrated Israeli-<br />

Chulnik hiking club. These hikers traversed much of Israel’s countryside, from Mt. Meron to<br />

Eilat and from the Northern Negev to Ein Gedi.<br />

Hillel made holidays come alive on campus. Students participated in services and seminars for<br />

many religious holidays. For Yom HaShoah and Yom HaZikaron Hillel planned programs to<br />

personally involve students in these national memorials. These included seminars, a group visit<br />

to Yad Vashem, and a tree-planting ceremony to honor all the Hebrew University students who<br />

had died in the defense of Israel.<br />

Along with religion, politics was the number-one issue this year. Hillel hosted a series of<br />

lecturers, from U.S. Consul General Morris Draper to Carole Pollack, sister of Jonathan Pollack,<br />

to members of the Knesset and of the press.<br />

Through the diversity of its programs, Hillel did its best to involve us in life on campus and life in<br />

Israel. The great success of the activities sponsored by Beit Hillel should motivate us to<br />

participate in the Hillels at our home universities next year.<br />

Nightlife in Jerusalem<br />

Some students faced the fact that shekels were indeed real money. With others, it was only after<br />

a few felafels, a few bus tickets and a few loads of laundry that they were able to put away their<br />

thoughts of monopoly bills. Soon everyone was cutting corners buying the red (under- 18-yearsof-age)<br />

bus tickets, washing their underwear in the sink, eating lots of spaghetti and writing<br />

home for advances on their birthdays.<br />

It didn’t take much time to find that four shekels could get one down to the city and back with<br />

enough to spare for a slice of Apple Pizza or a Carvel cone or a cup of coffee at Sefer V’Sefel.<br />

Museum entrances were reasonable, and walking around was free. In spite of thin wallets,<br />

dances, movies, and parties were all made part of the year in Jerusalem.<br />

Students learned to convert shekels to dollars and back again without batting an eye, became<br />

friends with the bank tellers in Foreign Exchange, and those who truly took the plunge had a<br />

bank card—how many times was it eaten?<br />

However expensive Jerusalem was, it was never too much to have fun. Whether downtown or in<br />

the Moadonim, on Ben Yehuda or in the King David, Jerusalem proved to be the investment of a<br />

lifetime.<br />

As soon as signs of Spring started to appear in March, many overseas students opened up ;heir<br />

Let’s Go’s and discovered Israel’s Riviera: Netanya. Israel's seventh largest city (pop. 110.000),<br />

located some 20 miles north of Tel Aviv on the Mediterranean coastline, Netanya's appeal often<br />

surpassed that of Eilat. Not as far from Jerusalem, and not as blistering hot, Netanya provided<br />

great weekend relief for students beset by the pressures of university life. Netanya’s golden<br />

beach, especially at the bottom of the stairway from the Kikar, was the source of some equally<br />

golden tans this spring, and the restaurants up and around the Midrechov were home to a<br />

plethora of parties and countless chance encounters. Nightlife in Netanya exploded within the<br />

walls of the Blue Bay, Place, and Number One nightclubs.<br />

Walking around Goldsmith on Sunday mornings, the Netanya stamp was usually evident on<br />

many tanned but tired overseas students returning to Jerusalem on the 947 bus. It was good to<br />

know that blessed beach relief lay only an houraway from the hustle and bustle of Jerusalem and<br />

the quiet confines of the University on a weekend. David Alpern 51

"Walk about Zion and go round about her. Count her towers: open your heart to her ramparts, traverse her palaces that<br />

you may tell it to the generation following."<br />

Dr. Israel Roi<br />

These two verses of Psalm 48 encapsulate the underlying agenda of the One Year Program. It is a bridge in time and<br />

space between 3.000 years of the city's history and the inner life of every student who has taken part. Few if anv emerge<br />

unscathed from the experience of crossing the bridge.<br />

This year has witnessed the highest-ever student enrollment in the One Year Program at Hebrew University. Moreover,<br />

most of the professors will attest that quantity has been matched bv a consistently high academic quality.<br />

This 40th vear of Israel's independence has also been a time of concern and soul-searching.<br />

Each of you. on returning from Jerusalem, will automatically become the city's ambassador who must tell his truth to<br />

the following generation. , ^<br />

Shalom,<br />

The time is quickly passing by, and you will soon leave Israel for your homes.<br />

I knew some of you better than others, but I saw all of you change tremendously in a very short<br />

time. This last year was very special for you, not to mention for us, the Israelis. The chavayot you<br />

take back home cannot be taken away, and unfortunately you will find it almost impossible to<br />

share it with others. You are different now, and I hope you will act on that difference.<br />

Never stand on the side. Always be involved, influential and active in your communities. If you<br />

learned anything this year in Israel, it is not to be indifferent. You can’t afford it.<br />

And for those who will choose Israel as their home one day, please see OSA as your base and<br />

support along the hard way.<br />

you go on hikes, seminars, parties, and other activities which you enjoyed, and I have also seen<br />

you change, growing and experiencing things you haven’t done before. You have become<br />

independent, and more aware of what’s happening around you. You have made Israel your home<br />

for this year, and you can be proud of yourselves for being here, especially now when things seem<br />

more difficult than in other years. I hope that when you go back home you will not forget your<br />

Israel experience, and that you will be the greatest ambassadors for Israel. I hope that Israel<br />

becomes part of your lives and not remain only a memory. I wish you luck in whatever you do and<br />

wherever you go.

Dear Friends,<br />

A year starts and a year ends. From my experience of two years of traveling abroad I know this<br />

bittersweet feeling of coming back home. I believe you’re all both happy and sad now. Those of<br />

you who know me well know that you can call on me as soon as you come back here again.<br />

If one day some of you come here for good, then I want you to know that we need people who<br />

think, people who can ask questions, moral people. And while you’re back home, support us here<br />

in Israel but don’t agree automatically with everything we’re doing here. The year you spent here<br />

we’ve made too many mistakes. I didn’t like the fact that some of you tried to be more Israeli than<br />

the Israelis, as if being overly nationalistic and immoral and insensitive makes you a more<br />

“loyal'’ Jew or Zionist or patriot. Don’t make the mistakes many of us are making. I’m saying<br />

this because I’m crazy about Israel, its land, its honesty, and its directness.<br />

I wish you love, and especially peace, and I hope you’ll be back here again.<br />

I feel that squeezing this unique year into several lines is like trying to get four suitcases into a<br />

room in Givat Ram. So wait for my complete book, it’s coming soon. I’m not responsible for the<br />

rest of this:<br />

I found that this year started with a blossoming summer: like an old wine it became deeper and<br />

tastier as I got to know you.<br />

Meeting you was meeting colors of all sorts, and that was a special opportunity.<br />

As well as opening horizons I too questioned myself about my identity, as a Jew, an Israeli, and a<br />

aja<br />

person. Sounds big? We are!!<br />

I hope that you’ve seen new things this year (like how to open plastic bags of milk). I could have<br />

shown you a charming, shiny country, but my tiny piece of land is full of hard questions. This<br />

may not be enough to fill your picnic basket for your journey back home, but I prefer the right<br />

questions to the wrong answers. ®<br />

Finally, I’ve had the joy of seeing you build your life here, getting to know and digesting your<br />

surroundings, creating a world which you will carry with you no matter what you do: the<br />

memories and the feeling of having created a family in a far away land (see chapter 3 in my book). ^<br />

So, let’s enjoy the things that we can do without qualifications: laughter—and Aliyah?? We’ll<br />

see!!<br />

Dear Friends,<br />

Saying goodbye after a whole year of being together seems unreal, and this strange feeling makes<br />

it difficult to sum up the experience I have had with you. The whole thing was both a big<br />

challenge and a great chance to meet new people. This year has taken a lot of energy from me, but<br />

what I have gained back is much more than I can describe or express. Exposing myself to great<br />

people enabled me to widen my personal horizons, and proved to me that human relations can<br />

bridge many gaps and overcome many barriers. Sharing your thoughts has helped me to shape<br />

my own views and to raise many new questions about my identity as a person, a Jew and an Israeli<br />

(three identities that I’m very proud of).<br />

I really hope that staying here has contributed something to your understanding of yourselves.<br />

The experiences and the memories of this wonderful year will accompany you wherever you go,<br />

and stay with you no matter what you do.<br />

Thanks for giving me the pleasure of being part of this unforgettable year, and good luck to all of<br />

you! Just rememberthat this little country and its crazy little people will always be happy to<br />

welcome you back, j iove yOU so<br />

“All in all I wanted to drip a little drop,<br />

Because a drop, and another drop ...<br />

—Arik Einstein<br />

You’ve got a friend in Israel.<br />

Love,<br />

Mickey<br />

We met so long ago<br />

When you arrived at B.G. airport<br />

And I was there to welcome you, Chanich and Chanicha<br />

Because I was going to be your Madricha.<br />

My first words to you were:<br />

“Shalom” and “How was your flight?”<br />

“Ma Nishma?” and “Is everything alright?”<br />

And you, Motek, just before falling asleep<br />

Answered “I feel great, todah."<br />

You had so many thoughts of returning back home<br />

After those first moments of bad luck<br />

But in the five-star dorms you changed your mind—<br />

Israel is beautiful and the people so kind.<br />

You have started a new, good, happy life<br />

And everything seemed to be fine and alright.<br />

When the Ulpan was done you chose classes carefully<br />

You had the idea that at H.U. you have to<br />

study seriously.<br />

But you figured out so fast and quick<br />

That you should skip the Academic!<br />

So you went everywhere:<br />

In Tel-Aviv, Yam HaMelach and Kinneret you had so<br />

much fun,<br />

Ein Gedi, Sinai, Eilat, Yerushalyim is what you like,<br />

And of course, the Sea to Sea Hike.<br />

In short, a great student life.<br />

And now, while you’re writing papers and packing<br />

You surely have a few tears in your eyes and a wish<br />

of staying.<br />

Please don’t forget all the adventures, holidays, hopes,<br />

feelings, thoughts, the view, the weather, the<br />

hikes, your back pack. . .<br />

And the people who want you to come back!<br />

vearing<br />

sense of activism, involvement, and awareness that we all felt here; no way to illustrate the<br />

feelings that we had for Eretz Yisrael; even to show the depth of the friendships that were<br />

made here is impossible. The best we can hope to do is refresh your memories.<br />

Still, to do even that required an incredible amount of hard work and dedication from the<br />

editorial staff. While everyone helped out immensely, there are a few without whose<br />

combination of skill and commitment this yearbook could not have come together at all. Special<br />

thanks are due to Dani Kollin, design genius and spiritual Zen leader; Leslie Seltzer, artist cum<br />

laude and general workhorse; Stacy Berg, dedicated volunteer and border patroller; Jodi<br />

Dickstein, organizational maven and voice of some reason; Michael Beals, computer virtuoso<br />

and sympathetic vibrator; Pam Stein and Jamie Traeger, filing wizards and peerless labellers; and<br />

most especially to Efrat Cohen, the Queen of OSA, without whose help (and no small<br />

amount of proteetzia) this baby would still be on square one.<br />

While producing the yearbook was excruciatingly hard work, devoted at the cost of sleep, health,<br />

classes, and coherence, it was also a lot of fun, and this fact should not be forgotten, much as it<br />

might be buried under piles of T-squares, drafting tape, floppy disks, and obsessive-compulsive<br />

buttheaded organizational freakiness.<br />

While I m at it, thanks also to Mark Rubinstein, without whose patience, tolerance, and haute<br />

cuisine the yearbook would have gone on, but my personal sanity surely would not have.<br />

So enjoy. I’m going to sleep. Goodnight.<br />

Student Elections<br />

During the student elections it seemed that the worst of the Israeli political party system was<br />

visited upon the University. It seems strange that university students would replicate the flaws of<br />

the party system rather than try to improve upon them.<br />

Rather than being presented with individuals to vote for, the overseas student body was<br />

presented with two slates, one Gilaad, the other Ofek. Rather than being told about the personal<br />

experience and views of each candidate, we were told that Ofek represents Labor’s platform for<br />

an international peace conference while Gilaad represents Likud’s position of keeping the<br />

territories. It would have been far more just to have judged each individual candidate on the<br />

merit of the services and involvement they have provided for the One Year Program students.<br />

It is bad enough that Israeli politics is so polarized. To introduce this same polarization at the<br />

university level seems self-defeating. Ofek can no more bring about an international peace<br />

conference than Gilaad can bring about the realization of Greater Israel. And even when one<br />

insists that these parties address university issues, no coherent, realistic agenda is produced.<br />

The worst problem of the elections is the fact that these four newly-elected students will hold<br />

their seats for only three months. When the new overseas students arrive in August, these four<br />

seats wall be vacant, and will not be filled until next year’s elections, some seven months later.<br />

One hopes our four representatives will rise to the occasion by ensuring proper representation<br />

for next year’s overseas students.<br />

Michael Beals<br />

Ofek<br />

Ofek is the student government party representing the values of the national Labour party. Ofek<br />

has headed the Hebrew University student government for the past five years. During that time<br />

we have expanded the Student Union from 2,000 to 10,000 members. We also have been<br />

responsible for bringing to the University everything from xerox machines to the Baritone Club<br />

and performances by Shalom Chanoch and Yehudit Ravitz.<br />

Ofek was responsible last year for moving the One Year Program elections up from May to<br />

March, thereby increasing the voice and influence of One Year Program students in the<br />

Histadrut HaStudentim. Ofek is concerned with both the welfare of the students and the<br />

national political scene.<br />

Ofek follows the Labour Party platform of a Jordanian Compromise to the problem of the<br />

territories. Ofek is marked by an insistence on the maintenance of both democracy and Jewish<br />

values in Israel. To this end, Ofek promotes the protection of human rights and free speech, as<br />

well as the preservation of the integrity of the Jewish State of Israel. Ofek does not see the<br />

advantage in creating a state where Jewish national identity comes at the price of an apartheid<br />

regime.<br />

Happily for Ofek, the One Year Program students showed their belief in progressive Zionism by<br />

projecting the four Ofek candidates to the student government to strong victories. Ofek<br />

encourages students of all political leanings to return to Israel in all capacities.<br />

Benjamin Rabinowitz<br />

Gilaad<br />

Gilaad represents students on the right wing of the political spectrum, excluding Kahana’s Kach<br />

party. Gilaad is directly affiliated with Likud, Techiah, and the National Religious Party. Because<br />

of this diversity, Gilaad embraces a wide range of opinions without being restricted to any one<br />

specific policy. Gilaad is unified by the belief that those parties representing center politics in<br />

Israel have lost their direction. There no longer exists any clear distinction between Left and<br />

Center political views.<br />

One of our main aims is to decrease national political influence in the Student Union and to<br />

concentrate more on student affairs. With respect to the overseas programs, Gilaad encourages<br />

foreign students to gain as much as possible from their time in Israel by increasing integration<br />

between Israeli and overseas students.<br />

A prime focus of Gilaad’s policies is to prevent demonstrations against the State of Israel. To this<br />

end Gilaad has not only participated in demonstrations against the PLO and Meir Kahana, but<br />

has also fought for the right to fly the Israeli flag on the Hebrew University campus.<br />

Gilaad considers Judea, Samaria, and Gaza to be integral parts of Israel’s future security. Gilaad<br />

refuses to negotiate with the PLO or any other organization that refuses to recognize the State of<br />

Israel, and considers an international peace conference as an unreliable solution that may<br />

threaten Israel’s security. Gilaad believes that direct negotiations with moderate Arab leaders is<br />

the only real hope for a lasting peace in the Middle East.

BASP is not “British and Australians Sent to Party,” but is in fact the British and Australian<br />

Semester Programme, which sort of amounts to the same thing in some circles. In days gone by<br />

the Pommies and Aussies got a less than exemplary name for themselves with the University<br />

authorities. It seems that this year is no exception. The reason behind the crazy behaviour of this<br />

small bunch of people could be due to the fact that they don’t get credit for this year. Then again,<br />

if you ask the Yanks, we don’t get credit for anything.<br />

Our thanks to Yoel Nelson, our co-ordinator (of what I’m not quite sure) and to Andy<br />

Michaelson, our Madrich, who has beemdriven to the desperate lengths of marriage to save him<br />

from these people.<br />

Just how the respective nationals of a former penal colony and the washed-up remains of an<br />

Steve Castan hurtled down the stairs, late for his lesson at the rehabilitation centre.<br />

“You haven’t had your breakfast yet, Steve,” said his mother.<br />

F” * off. Mum!” Steve called back, kicking his father in the bollocks and laying into his sister<br />

with his steel-capped D.M.’s. “You bitch!” he yelled at her. “You’ve got blood all over my<br />

boots!”<br />

Steve had always been a good-natured family man. This was the third family he had gone<br />

through this year.<br />

Just then Mr. Castan collapsed on the floor clutching his stomach, blood dripping from his<br />

hands.<br />

“Sorry, Mr. Castan,” apologized Justin, clambering through the window with an M-16 under<br />

his arm. “1 was aiming for Mrs. Castan.”<br />

“Good one, Jus,” said Steve.<br />

Steve and Justin tunelled out of the house into Billebong High Street to visit one of the infamous<br />

Moshinsky massage parlours. Richard was waiting at the door with his harem, including the<br />

stapled quadruplets—Heidi, Evelyn, Tanya, and Bubbles, sipping a Foster’s and discussing<br />

Sartre’s fundamentalist ideas versus his later existentialist ideas with Professor Grynberg.<br />

“So you’re saying Sartre was a p***y-faced faggot!” yelled Richard.<br />

“No, no, Richard,” corrected Daniel. “Sartre was a man of immense genius as his later writings<br />

testify.”<br />

Just then Jamie appeared. “Hey Jamie, we’re discussing Sartre,” Richard screamed.<br />

“Oh, you mean that p***y-facedl faggot?”<br />

At that moment Mrs. Castan arrived carrying a plastic lunch box containing two live chickens.<br />

“I’ve brought your lunch, Stevie!”<br />

“Thanks Mum,” said Steve, slapping her on the back, jovially, with a police bollard.<br />

“Right, let’s go and jump into the black hole that is Julie Szego,” said Jamie enthusiastically.<br />

Julie could be found at any street corner, in a brown mac, poisoning the minds of innocent<br />

children and Johnny Finn with “colourful candy” and “sherbet” with an estimated street value<br />

of $2.5 million.<br />

“That’ll be $100,” Julie told a sweating Arieh. Steve and the gang entered the scene, and Julie<br />

threw herself at their feet.<br />

“Sorry, Julie, we’re not interested,” said Jamie.<br />

Everyone had become generally bored with life, especially Steve who had run out of people to<br />

abuse. There were still the “Wild Boys,” Ari and Terry, and the Winson mothers, Cheryl and<br />

Donna, and even the gormless giant, Michael Springer. Still, Steve Castan had become a<br />

solitary, melancholy figure. He had never liked the image of a ruthless psychopath. Perhaps he<br />

should have learned to play the guitar like Danny Rechter, Robert Sperling or Danny Block; or<br />

even grow his hair like Richard Lindell and David Goldman.<br />

Steve attempted a transformation, and then thought of Michele, Elbe, and Gadya reclining in<br />

their ass’s milk baths.<br />

“No,” Steve pondered. “ Pillage is far more interesting than Oscar Wilde!”

The British<br />

It was a regular night in Johnny and Jason’s room. The mob began to congregate amidst the<br />

stench of rotting underwear, rancid mucus and other miscellaneous refuse strongly resembling<br />

British humour. Lucy was sitting inconspicuously in the middle of the room trying to read<br />

Johnny Finn’s diary. Johnny himself was watching her intently. Lucy didn’t seem to notice.<br />

“What shall it be tonight, guys,” asked Jason, “poker or bridge?” But the mob decided to be<br />

daring and opt for a game of Risk, a game in which boys can experience the glory of imperialism<br />

and exploitation. They could almost relive those wonderful days of a once thriving empire in<br />

which men were men, women had babies, natives were obedient, and Pakies didn’t play cricket.<br />

Sadly, several were absent from tonight’s gathering. Wendy was hosting a social extravaganza,<br />

Nat was doing the rounds on the Australians, and Jo was experiencing different spheres of<br />

consciousness with her boyfriend from Luxemburg. Leora, Patricia and Louise dropped in<br />

occasionally to che'ck out the progress, but seemingly could not stomach prolonged exposure.<br />

“Johnny Finn, you’re an abortion,” said Johnny Tickner. Johnny was in a relaxed mood that<br />

night, having insulted 8 people, provoked 3 suicides, and caused 2 girls to miscarry, neither of<br />

whom were pregnant, all in the name of fun. He had only one voice of dissension with which to<br />

contend, and that was Jeremy, who was ideologically opposed to “fun” on the basis that it was<br />

prohibited bv Halacha.<br />

“Rhubarb,” said Zeddy.<br />

“W hat do you know about rhubarb?” said Ronny.<br />

“What is rhubarb anyway?” asked Mike. Everyone had presumed he was asleep.<br />

“Well, the Oxford Dictionary definition of the word ‘rhubarb’ is an undefined substance, a<br />

medieval form of political subversion,” said Andy.<br />

“Actually,” ejaculated Jason, “the word ‘rhubarb’ is derived from the Latin word ‘rhubus’,<br />

meaning to rhube incessantly without cause or effect.”<br />

“Well, I reckon you’re a bit of a Rhubarb,” said Lucy, quick off the mark as ever.<br />

David, friend of everyone, enemy of no one, agreed.<br />

The British were clearly skilled in the art of meaningless communication, and tonight was no<br />

exception. Yet there was tension within this merry mob. There was Ben, hard-up bov gone stud,<br />

who made all envious with his conquests. Then there was Johnny Finn, a sweet, innocent<br />

Liverpudlian, currently facing criminal charges for being in possession of tea-leaves.<br />

And so the evening continued. Tickner threatened to mutilate Finn (Finn wanted to threaten<br />

Tickner with something far worse but forgot what he was going to say). Jason and Ronny battled<br />

it out for control of the continent, but it soon became apparent to all present that Robin had won<br />

the game. But by that stage, the mob had grown weary of their revelry and, expressing the formal<br />

grunt of farewell, promptly dispersed.<br />

Near Jerusalem: Life in Israel<br />

A Middle East Primer<br />

Know your Middle East! In this confusing region, policies, personalities, and political parties change faster than a Jap’s<br />

T-shirt in a chamsin. To better acquaint you with the fast-paced politics of this volatile area of the world, we have<br />

presented you with this mini-guide to the movers and shakers between the Mediterranean and the Gulf. The cast of<br />

characters:<br />

Prime Minister Itzak Shamir: Known to his good friends as “Yoda.” Rather short character with eyebrows so thick that<br />

they could easily house a tribe of Bedouins. Not known for his brilliant vocabulary in English—or Hebrew—but can<br />

really get the crowds going around election time. One of the Middle East heads of state who has not said “no” to the<br />

Schultz Plan.<br />

Foreign Minister Shimon “Slim Shim” Peres: This character has mastered the art of the half twist double repeat<br />

somersault when it comes to taking a political position. Rather good looking fellow who has fetched top ratings on<br />

ABC, NBC and CBS but can’t seem to do the same with his Israeli audiences. He would be one of the Middle East heads<br />

of state who has said “yes” to the Schultz Plan, except he’s not currently a Middle East head of state.<br />

King Hussein of Jordan (more familiar to JTV viewers as “His Majesty the King”): Besides working as Sherman<br />

Hemsley’s stand-in on the TV sitcom “The Jeffersons,” Hussein busies himself by greeting heads of state, attending<br />

openings of exhibitions (this comprises 99% of Radio Jordan news reports), keeping out of trouble (except for June<br />

1967), and basically staying alive. He has succeeded in this last endeavor better than any of his former Arab colleagues.<br />

Like Shamir, Hussein is one of the Middle East heads of state who has not said “no” to the Schultz Plan.<br />

U.S. Secretary of State George P. Schultz: Younger brother of famous cartoonist Charles Schultz, creator of Snoopy<br />

and Charlie Brown. Rumor has it that brother George stole the text for his Peace Plan from a dialogue between<br />

Woodstock and Snoopy which older brother Charles had discarded. George is known for his perseverance, sense of<br />

martyrdom, and isolation from the Reagan administration’s decision-making apparatus.<br />

Mubarak Awad: In his latest battle with the courts, this American Jerusalemite is trying to get his name changed to<br />

Mubarak Gandhi King Awad, Jr., but Shamir is trying to block the move for fear that it will incite violence. The<br />

character resembles an overstuffed teddy bear. But don’t let your children get too close, because this self-proclaimed<br />

non-violent protester encourages destroying public property, laying in front of bull dozers and eventual armed<br />

struggle.<br />

Yasser “Baby Face” Arafat: Poster child for the Palestinian People and reputed moderate within the PLO, which means<br />

he would like to gently dismantle the Zionist State. An accomplished jet-setter, he can often be seen in Rome<br />

visiting the Pope one day while popping up in Moscow for a chat with Gorbachev the next.<br />

Arafat’s jet-setting serves as an inspiration for the thousands of his fellow Palestinian<br />

brethren who waste away in refugee camps. He would be known as one of the Middle East<br />

heads of state who has said “no” to the Schultz Plan, except he currently has no Middle<br />

East state of which to be head.<br />

Michael Beals<br />

Jewish Identity<br />

Way back in October, an Israeli friend asked me, “which do you consider yourself first, Jewish or American?” Before<br />

coming to Israel, my answer would without a doubt have been American. Having by then been in Israel for two months,<br />

I was unsure. I didn’t know which was more a part of me, and I told her so.<br />

Now it’s May, and I’ve been in Israel for ten months.J’ve experienced Shabbatot in Jerusalem, holidays that I never<br />

knew even existed, and the incredibly powerful feelings of days like Yom HaShoah, Yom HaZikaron, and Yom<br />

HaAtzma’ut. I’ve learned more about Israel and Judaism than I ever thought possible. My eyes have been opened to a<br />

world that I never knew was mine.<br />

Israel. How can you live here for a year and remain untouched? How can you go out the same person that you were when<br />

you came in? How can your Jewish identity remain stagnant when you re living in a country that was built by Jews, is<br />

run by Jews, and is inhabited by a majority of Jews—a situation that exists nowhere else in the world. Running around<br />

preparing for the Shabbat weekend on Friday; speaking and hearing Hebrew in the classrom and in the street; taking<br />

classes, lectures, and seminars on Jewish subjects; having Passover vacation rather than spring break. It s a different<br />

world here in many ways— and what strikes me most is that everything that happens here is relevant to me. And it’s<br />

that way simply because I’m Jewish.<br />

I was at my friend’s apartment last week, and we got into the same discussion. She said to me, “after all, you’re not even<br />

sure which is more a part of you, being American or being Jewish.” I smiled at her and said, You asked me that<br />

question in October, remember?<br />

“And what do you think now?<br />

Laurie Goldberg<br />

“Jewish.”


Territories<br />

West Bank Settlement<br />

For the past ten years one of the most popular places in which Israelis have chosen to live are the<br />

regions of Judea and Samaria. This area, from the Jordan Valley in the north to the Dead Sea in<br />

the south and to within nine miles of the Mediterranean coast in the west, now has<br />

approximately 70,000 Israeli residents. These Israelis live in many different types of settlements<br />

and cities. There are many different kibbutzim, moshavim, yishuvim, and shichunot. Jews have<br />

returned to the biblical cities of Hevron and Shechem.<br />

Originally these settlements were established for security and religious reasons. But today more<br />

and more Israelis are moving there to escape from city life. An Israeli “Yuppie” class has<br />

developed which does not like the crowding and expenses that city life entails. They prefer the<br />

wide open expanses of Judea and Samaria and a short commute to work in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv.<br />

Although all of the settlements are different, they all share a beauty and quality of life that<br />

cannot be duplicated in any city. The sense of community that pervades these settlements is<br />

something that can never be experienced growing up in a city.<br />

The yishuvim in Judea and Samaria have become an integral part of the economy and security of<br />

Israel. Flopefully the next ten years will contain increased growth for the Jewish settlements in<br />

Judea and Samaria.<br />

Gaza Settlement<br />

December 17-20: Hannuka Vacation<br />

Before I got to the yishuv of Neve Dequalim, I was nervous about the situation in Gaza. But once<br />

I was there, it was so peaceful it was difficult to imagine that anything was wrong. We stood on a<br />

hill overlooking the Arab village, Khan Yunis, where there have been riots, violence, and killing<br />

in the past week. We could also see Neve Dequalim, looking organized and rich, all the houses<br />

the same size, and trees and grasses growing everywhere. Khan Yunis was just the opposite, the<br />

houses barely visible among the shabby trees and weeds. It seemed poor and depressed. The two<br />

villages were separated by barbed wire, and the fence between them was guarded heavily. The<br />

paradox: we could hear children playing on the sand dunes of Khan Yunis on one side of the<br />

fence; and turning, we could hear children laughing and playing in the playground of Neve<br />

Dequalim. We were standing in the middle of the Arab-Israeli conflict, its tensions buried<br />

beneath the laughter of innocent children. „ TT<br />

An Alternate View<br />

The areas known as the Occupied Territories, Administered Territories, or Judea, Samaria, and<br />

Gaza have proven to be a major problem for Israel. Israel has three realistic options for these<br />

areas: annexation, maintaining the status quo, and negotiation.<br />

At this point the territories contain well under 100,000 Jews, and liberal estimates put the Arab<br />

population at over 1,500,000. When Likud took control of the Knesset in 1977, they pushed<br />

for a massive settlement of these areas. Such an event has not taken place. Rather, a limited<br />

number of Jewish nationalists have moved there for ideological reasons and a group of Israeli<br />

“yuppies” have moved in to take advantage of government subsidized loans, grants and<br />

mortgages.<br />

Were the territories to be annexed Israel would soon be faced with the choice of giving up the<br />

Jewish majority within Israel proper or giving up the democratic nature of the state.<br />

By retaining the status quo Israel is tearing herself apart at the seams. Both the left and right are<br />

becoming polarized and many youngsters are losing faith in their own government. In addition,<br />

as a result of the recent “series of disturbances” in the territories, man-power is being drained<br />

from Israeli external military capabilities. Money is being drained from Israel’s fragile<br />

economy, and Israel is losing the battle for world public opinion.<br />

The negotiation option is the most logical of the three. By negotiating “land for peace” Israel<br />

can solve many of her problems. Jewish, rather than Arab labor can be returned to the land. The<br />

IDF can return to a defensive rather than occupying posture, and the underdeveloped areas of<br />

the Negev, Galil, and Golan Heights can be settled by those idealists who live in the territories<br />

today.<br />

The two major arguments against negotiation are based upon religious and security arguments.<br />

Both major ultra-Orthodox political parties (Shas and Agudat Yisrael) have stated that land<br />

can be given up to save Jewish lives. In addition, Rabbis Amital and Lichenstein, heads of<br />

Yeshivot Hesder (yeshivot that combine traditional Jewish education and army service) based<br />

in the territories, have come out in favor of territorial compromise for peace.<br />

As for the military argument, it is leakier than the White House. Israel’s greatest military<br />

victories occurred when Israel was not in possession of territories. More high-ranking military<br />

personnel are aligned with Labor than any other political party. Both Ori Or, former<br />

Commander of the Center and Northern Commands, and Avigdor Yanush, former CO of the<br />

Northern Command, have spoken out in favor of land for peace based on security and national<br />

needs. While there are many problems with negotiations, they are not insurmountable, and<br />

these problems pale in comparison to the problems inherent in the alternatives of status quo or<br />

annexation.<br />

Life in Israel<br />

Relatives<br />

My father left Morocco long before it was granted its independence. Most Moroccan Jews<br />

emigrated to Israel, France, Canada, and the United States, but only after the fear of Arab<br />

independence and the end of French rule became real. My father’s parents and their eleven<br />

children made aliyah much earlier, shortly after the birth of the State of Israel.<br />

My grandmother often tells me of the hardship she, as most Sephardi immigrants, was victim to,<br />

both in housing and in employment. They were housed outside of Rehovot, in Kfar Gvirol with<br />

other unwanted immigrants. Even today Kfar Gvirol is still made up of such unwanted<br />

immigrants.<br />

Today these memories are forgotten, and the result of my grandparents’ aliyah is now over 50<br />

sabras: their grandchildren and great-grandchildren.<br />

I have always felt alone in America, surrounded only by my immediate family: my father’s family<br />

is here in Israel and my mother s in France. Now that I am in Israel, I still haven’t managed to<br />

reach everybody’s house for Shabbat and, save my grandparents, I haven’t stayed with anyone<br />

twice. Every Shabbat that I have spent with my family has been full of stories, history, joy and,<br />

unfortunately, the unhappiness of parting for an indefinite amount of time.<br />

The One Year Program was all the more special for me, for it meant I would be able to overcome<br />

my family s separation and geographic isolation, while continuing to study for my university<br />

degree. I came to Israel for my junior year to meet my family, and this will probably be the reason<br />

that makes me come back.<br />

j eff ifrai-,<br />

Having relatives in a foreign country always makes one’s stay more comfortable, and allows one<br />

to experience a different culture and lifestyle. I am very lucky to get three different experiences<br />

within one family.<br />

Tzipora and Dolek Gat, Holocaust survivors, typify their generation of Israelis. They live in a<br />

comfortable apartment with a gorgeous view of the Haifa Bay. Tzipora teaches sewing in the<br />

apartment, and Dolek has one more year before receiving his pension from an electrical<br />

company.<br />

Their eldest daughter, Ruthy, lives with her husband and their three children in a modern house<br />

they designed themselves in the very westernized suburb of Atlit, 15 minutes south of Haifa.<br />

Their daughters, ages 14 and 12, go to a private secular school. During visits, we frequent<br />

restaurants together and hold large family gatherings at their house in Atlit.<br />

Unlike her older sister Ruthy, Shlomit lives with her husband and their three children in a small<br />

apartment in Carmiel, a small town between Acco and Nazareth. Carmiel has grown too much<br />

for their liking and they are planning to move to Yoralim, a settlement of only 150 families. Their<br />

children all attend the local schools and things are done together in the house.<br />

It is interesting to note that despite their different lifestyles, their homes are always open to me<br />

and my friends, and they would go to any lengths for their American cousin.<br />

Debbie Engejt<br />

Back in London during the Second World War, my dad’s best friend was his cousin Monty. In<br />

1964, after a wonderful trip to Israel, Monty, his wife Sheila and their two children made aliyah.<br />

That is how I came upon having family in Israel.<br />

They live in what they call the penthouse apartment of the Commercial Center in Kfar<br />

Shmeryahu. Kfar Shmeryahu is anything but a kfar (village), it is one of the nicest suburbs<br />

outside of Tel-Aviv with some of the streets and homes resembling the architecture and<br />

landscaping of Beverly Hills, California. Monty is a partner in an insurance firm and Sheila owns<br />

the beauty shop in the Commercial Center. An Israeli beauty shop runs circles around its<br />

American counterpart, offering such services as massages, skin treatments and facials to name<br />

but a few.<br />

Monty and Sheila have made my year in Israel very special for me, especially during Shabbos and<br />

the High Holidays, when I was a guest in their synagogue. They have preserved many of the<br />

traditions I learned in my home, like a nice cup of tea at ’round about four in the afternoon, with<br />

milk, sugar, and a biscuit.<br />

Shabbat<br />

Every Friday in Jerusalem, the already intense hustle and bustle increases as the city prepares for<br />

Shabbat. Unlike any other city in the world, the whole city of Jerusalem publicly expresses its<br />

observance of Shabbat.<br />

The buses are packed with people young and old on last minute errands, especially shopping for<br />

food for Shabbat meals. At Machaneh Yehuda not a single hand is empty. Bags are filled with<br />

fruits, vegetables, pita, freshly-baked challa, cookies, and, inevitably, ingredients for cholent.<br />

The tumult is even worse at the Tachanah Mercazit, where families, students, and soldiers load<br />

buses to Tel Aviv, Bnai Brak, Elaifa, Netanya, Safed and every other major city in Israel. The<br />

crowds of people grow steadily until the mad rush reaches its peak with the imminent approach<br />

of Shabbat. On city buses, people dressed in their finest carry flowers and other gifts, as they<br />

travel to their Shabbat destinations.<br />

Slowly the streets in the city filter out. The last buses are half-filled, and only a few of the<br />

unorganized can be seen scurrying about in town. The Old City now begins to buzz with both<br />

religious and non-religious Jews gathering at the Kotel to daven mincha, kabbalat Shabbat, and<br />

ma’ariv, or just to take in the mood of a Shabbat in Jerusalem. With the buses taking the day off<br />

and businesses closed, the ruach of Shabbat, the day of rest, has been set.<br />

Hanukkah<br />

Here at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, students from all parts of the world quest for*,<br />

knowledge, preparing for future careers and searching for life’s meaning. We, the under-thirty M<br />

generation, carry the torch of Judaism, the light of Israel, and the future of our epic tradition.<br />

Here on the Jerusalem campus may well be the future prime minister of Israel or a couple of<br />

cabinet ministers-to-be. Among the bright young minds here we can find the visionaries who<br />

will lead the Jewish people of the 21st century. With all our youthful impatience and naive ,<br />

idealism, we are the harbingers of a future for Israel. Our idealistic goal should be a utopian<br />

vision of peace, brotherhood, and universal understanding. That, I believe, is one of the messages<br />

of the Hanukkah lights. The menorah candles are not just a shining of lights to each other;<br />

rather, the flames proclaim our vision of light and hope and reflect a dream tempered in the<br />

scourges of history and fired by mysteries of tradition. Our lights are meant to bring warmth and<br />

radiate happiness. Our menorah lights the fire of peace and destroys the waves of animosity. At j<br />

our University, so many different views and diverging life styles are united by a common<br />

visionary light. From Zion shines forth our light, a beacon of faith to all our brethren and a<br />

breath of happiness to all humanity.<br />

Pesach in Jerusalem<br />

Events<br />

My Pesach in Jerusalem was one of my best ever. The first night I went to the Kotel and was set up<br />

with a family in Ramat Eshkol for the seder. While I was davening at the wall, I happened to<br />

bump into Anatoly Scharansky and his two children. It was incredible meeting him during<br />

Pesach in Israel, at a time when everyone thinks of freedom, when he was finally free from<br />

imprisonment in the Soviet Union. But hold on to your hometz, the story gets better.<br />

The next night, while many Israelis were ending their Yom Tov, our group of overseas students<br />

and friends began our second seder, as is done in the diaspora. Beginning a little late at 10:30 pm<br />

we discussed the redemption of the Jews from Egypt well into the night. Everyone contributed<br />

his or her own personal tradition from their home seders, and there were many questions from<br />

those who had never attended a seder before. There was lots of ruach and creativity, and we heard<br />

readings from many different sources; for example, Martin Luther King’s “Let Freedom Ring”<br />

speech. There was so much discussion that by midnight we still had not begun the meal.<br />

After the matzah and all the other delicious home cooked food was eaten, people regained their<br />

energy for the home stretch of the seder. The afikoman was found. Even for those who couldn’t<br />

find it, or were simply too tired to look, there were consolation prizes. Then everyone filled<br />

Elijah’s cup with a little wine from their own, as each made a symbolic effort to collectively bring<br />

about the next redemption of the Jews and of all people.<br />

Finally we sang our many versions of Had Gadya in Hebrew and English, and concluded the seder<br />

with Hatikvah. People seemed to find hidden energy at 3:00 am to dance and sing to L’Shana<br />

HaBa’a B’Yerushalayim—Next Year in Jerusalem. It was strange and very special to know that<br />

we were all here together this year in Jerusalem, and that next year we would all be singing this<br />

song one more time, hoping to be back here, together again.<br />

Christian Holidays in Israel<br />

For some non-Jews on the overseas programs, this Christmas in Jerusalem was one of our best<br />

ever. Although we had no family with whom to celebrate, we found friends and became involved<br />

in local events, including singing in shepherds’ fields a few nights before Christmas, going to<br />

Bethlehem on Christmas Eve, and having Christmas dinner together. While many missed the<br />

usual Christmas-related events and programs of home, the Western commercialism associated<br />

with Christmas was not missed at all. No Santa Claus, no last-minute shopping. The absence of<br />

the need to look for ways to celebrate allowed the true meaning of Christmas to come through<br />

Easter was also different here than at hom e-starting with the fact that this is where it all<br />

happened so long ago. Instead of the usual church services, one could attend an Easter vigil the<br />

night before, go to the Garden Tomb for sunrise services, and walk along the stations of the cross<br />

For both'hohdays, one had to look to get involved. One doesn’t get caught up in the excitement of<br />

the holidavs as happens at home. Fortunately, there were no classes to attend on either day; that<br />

u/milrl have seemed strange. If one didn’t actively seek to be involved, the holidays just passed by<br />

as another day off. How much one sought to get involved made the difference.


Purim<br />

Purim: Israel s answer to Mardi Gras. While in the Diaspora the holiday is marked by small<br />

carnivals and costume contests at the local synagogue, in Israel it is an excuse for national<br />

craziness for all ages.<br />

Here in Jerusalem the holiday takes on two aspects. The Megillah of Esther, the story of how<br />

Mordecai and Esther together defeated Haman to save the Jews, is faithfully retold in<br />

synagogues throughout the city. Most OYP students found themselves at either the Hecht<br />

Synagogue listening to a creative, musical rendition of the Megillah, or at the French Hill<br />

Masorti Synagogue with lots of families, and OYP students chanting parts of the story.<br />

On Ben Yehuda, Purim showed its secular side. No matter how inconspicuous you appeared,<br />

the odds were strong that you would be bopped over the head with a hammer or shpritzed with<br />

artificial snow.<br />

For those who went outside the walled city of Jerusalem, there was another day to celebrate<br />

Purim. Some students saw the nationalistic spirit of the holiday by either heading to Tel Aviv<br />

for the annual Purim parade, complete with floats, or journeying north to Tzfat for Fchaims<br />

with the Chernoval rebbe and his entourage.<br />

Events<br />

Yom HaAtzma'ut<br />

For Yom HaAtzma’ut number 40 we wanted not only to sing and dance in the streets but also to<br />

take part in the official opening ceremonies. We jumped on bus #26 to Har Herzl with no idea<br />

what lay in store for us. The ceremony consisted of soldiers marching, a spectacular exchange of<br />

the official flags from the Southern to Central Guard, the lighting of twelve torches for the<br />

twelve tribes of Israel, a few short speeches, an emotional rendition of Hatikvah and a<br />

breathtaking fireworks display.<br />

Unfortunately, our words can never express the emotions that ceremony inspired in everyone<br />

there. The whole arena burst with national pride and Zionism. The sense of togetherness felt by<br />

all represented the true essence of what Israel, as a Jewish national homeland, stand for. We<br />

honesty felt that this was our country. We understood what the torch lighters meant when they<br />

proudly proclaimed Vtiferet Medinat Yisrael—for the glory of the State of Israel.

Events<br />

Yom Yerushalayim<br />

In June 1967, Israeli paratroopers entered the Old City of Jerusalem, gaining control of the<br />

entire city, including the Temple Mount and Western Wall. This unified the city under Jewish<br />

control for the first time in almost 2000 years. Each year a national holiday commemorating this<br />

event is observed on the 28th of Iyar. The day is marked by ceremonies on Ammunition Hill, the<br />

site of a major battle, and at the Kotel.<br />

For those of us who are too young to remember a Jewish state without a unified Jerusalem as its<br />

capital, it is difficult to appreciate the significance of this day. Since the destruction of the<br />

Second Temple, Jewish worship and settlement in Jerusalem had been severely restricted. During<br />

the first 19 years of the State of Israel, the Jordanians denied the Jewish people their right to pray<br />

at the Wall. The phrase “next year in Jerusalem” was a plea with little hope of realization.<br />

Today we know that the Western Wall is only a bus ride away. “Next year in Jerusalem” has<br />

become a question whose answer lies not with governments and armies but with each<br />

individual’s actions. For those of us who are leaving Israel after a year of study, Yom<br />

Yerushalayim is a reminder that our departure does not have to be permanent. “Next year in<br />

Jerusalem” can be a promise and not just a song.<br />

Bennett Degen<br />

80<br />

As Yom Yerushalayim approaches, and with it the 21st anniversary of the reunification of<br />

Jerusalem, conflicting thoughts run through my mind. I am as happy as the next person to be<br />

able to go freely to the Kotel or to the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus. I would never be<br />

willing to give up the Old City, but how can I rejoice when riots are occurring, 18 year olds are<br />

fighting each other in Nablus, the army is being demoralized and the country being ripped at the<br />

seams—in part over the very reunification that we celebrate each 28th of Iyar.<br />

How can the current situation continue? This year, Yom Yerushalayim will be a very difficult day<br />

in our city, which derives its name from peace. Perhaps on this May 15, while some are singing<br />

and dancing and others protesting, we should stop and think what King David had in mind for<br />

Jerusalem, and that the Temple was not allowed to be built here until there was tranquility. It was<br />

not David but Solomon who was permitted to build the Temple, because his hands were clean of<br />

blood. Perhaps that is how we should celebrate Yom Yerushalayim: rejoicing over what we have<br />

achieved while realizing that Jerusalem cannot be truly unified until there is peace.<br />

Near Israel: Travel Abroad<br />

Let's Go Hell<br />

“Can you point me in the direction of Hell? I think I’m there but I’m not quite sure.” Fear not, we<br />

are here to expose the realities of travel from Israel. Tired of the “freshness and style” of<br />

Berlitz’s Hebrew for Travelers (“Eifo ha Disco, chamud?") and Israel on $25 a Day? We now<br />

offer the realistic alternative: Let’s Go Hell. We make no claim of being able to “guide you<br />

through the seemingly inextricable maze of tasks that need to be done, providing cost-cutting,<br />

practical information that allows you to make an informed decision on what kind of trip to<br />

take.” Instead, we expose the cold reality, the labyrinth that is Student Travel.<br />

To begin your trip: for those who require transportation to Ben Gurion International Airport, we<br />

suggest enlisting the services of Nesher Taxi, the People’s Express of sherut services. Be sure to<br />

go into the office in person the day before and make the necessary arrangements. That way, you<br />

will feel a personal connection with the employees when you call up to ask why your taxi has not<br />

shown up. Get out the earplugs and your Hebrew dictionary because you will be verbally<br />

assaulted and accused of lying, for of course Nesher Taxi was there, waiting for you for a half<br />

hour, and missed picking up three other passengers. Therefore, you will have to pay double to<br />

recoup their losses, if they decide to show up. So, we recommend racing to the Hyatt and paying<br />

60 NIS for the privilege. It’s the fun and convenient way to create a travel budget deficit before<br />

you even leave Israel.<br />

Before leaving the country, Let’s Go Hell recommends making your travel arrangements at the<br />

American Express office with the charmingly incompetent manager, Yitzhak. For example, if<br />

you plan on flying from Paris to any destination, he will make sure you set foot in both of Paris’<br />

major airports before you leave. How can one manager arrange such a Herculean task? By telling<br />

you that your flight leaves from Orly when it actually departs from de Gaulle. However, you will<br />

not be aware of this because when you try to confirm you flight, the line will be busy all night.<br />

Like an innocent lamb being led to the slaughter, you will go to Orly and discover that reality of<br />

Hell. Surprise! Your plane is leaving in fifty minutes— from de Gaulle. This will give you an<br />

opportunity to get rid of those extra francs because the shuttle from Orly to de Gaulle will cost<br />

you 60 of them. But here’s the beauty of it: de Gaulle is 75 minutes away. This means your flight<br />

will leave without you and you will arrive at your destination several hours late. The time will give<br />

you the chance to reflect on the bumbling madhouse that is the American Express office in<br />

Jerusalem. Now wouldn’t you have been better off staying in Israel?<br />

Turkey<br />

David has forced me under threat of Turkish Bath to put down some thoughts about Turkey. I<br />

didn’t hesitate to grab a pen because I know what such a threat entails. In two words David told<br />

me that I better start writing unless I want to stand naked in a strange country, wander about hot<br />

stone floors in small wooden sandals, sit on sweaty slabs of granite and pour hot and cold water<br />

over my head from a plastic bowl, and wait in confusion until a little man with knots for muscles<br />

tosses me down to squeeze every muscle in my body until I moan like the man who climbs the<br />

minaret. For my own safety I concluded that sharing such an experience would be better than<br />

reliving it at David’s hands.<br />

Actually, to return to a Turkish bath is a dream I hope to fulfill, because that would mean<br />

returning to Turkey, undoubtedly one of the most fascinating countries in the world. I had no<br />

idea what Turkey would offer, and each step proved to be a learning experience more complete<br />

than the last. I was thrust years into the past where the greatest products of trade are hand woven<br />

carpets and leather, and surrounded by the friendliest people between Europe and Asia. Do not<br />

be scared by a Turk spending his entire day touring you, his guest, around the city of his origin;<br />

he’ll expect nothing more than a Thank You or perhaps a glass of raki at the day’s end. Do not be<br />

surprised by an invitation into a stranger’s home for tea; it is as common as the sight of a woman<br />

hand weaving thick, colored socks and gloves in front of the Sultan’s Palace.<br />

And this is only Istanbul. As one travels down the Aegean coast, the spectacle of ruins 2,000<br />

years old challenges the imagination to accept the advances of civilizations twenty centuries<br />

gone; amphitheatres so acoustically perfect that one person sitting on the stage can hold a<br />

normal conversation with another 150 meters up on the highest tier.<br />

From that high tier one can look westward to the sparkling Aegean and imagine all of Europe, or<br />

turn to the east for a vision that spans across the volcanic plateaus and sandy deserts of Asia<br />

Minor. Turkey is a country that spans two continents, not only geographically but culturally, the<br />

spectacular crossroad between Asia and Europe. One should miss neither the warmth of the<br />

people nor the splendor and excitement that awaits on the shores of the Bosphorous and the<br />

Colonnades of Ephesus.<br />

Well, that was a mouthful. I’m exhausted. Dave, go draw me a bath, not too hot. Are there any<br />

bubbles?<br />

Dear Mom & Dad,<br />

I have just experienced the Communist world for the first time. Sarah Baker (I met her in Ulpan,<br />

remember?) and I were in Budapest this week. We arrived in Hungary on a misty night, at Keleti<br />

Palyandvar, the city’s largest rail station. The place was packed with soldiers, all carrying Soviet<br />

rifles, and travelling families, who rr ust’ve been carrying everything they owned. There was a big<br />

red star hanging over us all. A woman came up to us, holding a little card. She wanted us to stay<br />

in her house (cheap!). So we went home with her, so to speak.<br />

That was the beginning of our adventures. The people were very friendly, and a few tried to speak<br />

English to us. It sounded almost as funny as my Hungarian. Things were really cheap—it cost<br />

only four cents to ride the subway. Lots of people looked surprised to see Westerners, especially<br />

Americans. Everybody thought we were German.<br />

Some things about Budapest seem just like the Communist stereotype: long lines for food and<br />

consumer goods, endless blocks of drab apartment houses, and a big neon sign downtown saying<br />

Nepkoztarsasag—People’s Republic. But there are some things that are just like home: flowers,<br />

opera houses, big museums, and lots of laughing children.<br />

Sarah and I are heading for Prague next, and we hope to see Poland and East Germany, too. I’ll<br />

send you a card soon.<br />

Love,<br />

Travel Abroad<br />

What to do for February break? Hmm. Europe...nah, too expensive. Israel? Nah, I need to get<br />

away. Egypt? Hey—that’s where I’ll go, but I want to see it with a minimum of travel hassles and<br />

with a large group of friends. An organized tour? Definitely. And so it came to pass that my<br />

friends and I secured spots on an eight-day Neot Hakikar tour of Egypt.<br />

The sun had not yet risen as my fellow travellers and I trundled out of Resnick and made our way<br />

to the Neot Hakikar office. Bleary eyed and tired, yet excited, we impatiently awaited the coach<br />

that would whisk us to the Land of the Pharaohs. Falling immediately into traveller’s torpor, that<br />

semi-conscious state one easily achieves on buses, we soon found ourselves at the border. What<br />

now?<br />

The interminable process of queuing in lines on both sides of the border eventually cleared us of<br />

suspicion and we were soon on our way across the Sinai Penninsula. The pattern for public<br />

relations had been established at the border, and I was concerned that Egypt would be no Garden<br />

of Eden. From Israeli air-conditioning, public facilities, and legible exit forms, Egypt greeted us<br />

with heat, dirt, washrooms the Huns would have been ashamed of, and entrance forms illegibly<br />

printed on cardboard. It’s amazing that a country with one of the world’s largest standing armies<br />

can provide such luxuries for its citizens and foreign travellers.<br />

Sleep. How it easily comes when in the middle of the day there’s nothing to look at. I believe even<br />

Israeli agriculturalists would be hard pressed to make anything grow in the North Sinai.<br />

Then we were on it, that world-famous waterway, revolutionary symbol and front line—The<br />

Suez Canal. Crossing techniques have not improved one iota since Anwar Sadat sent 150,000<br />

soldiers across on Yom Kippur 1973. Our bus was driven onto a small ferry and across we sailed.<br />

By nighttime we had arrived in Cairo, our first stop. Home to at least 8 million—teeming,<br />

festering Cairo! Sequestered in the extremely pleasant Marwa Hotel, the next two days were<br />

spent conquering the pyramids at Giza and Saqqara, the Sphinx, and the statues of Memphis.<br />

Next stop: Luxor. The overnight train was simply fantastic. It was a great feeling rolling along<br />

the Nile Valley into Upper Egypt. The sunrise was magnificent. The sights flew by in a blur: the<br />

Valley of the Kings, Temple of Luxor, and the incomparable Karnak Temple.<br />

Now it’s a bus to Aswan, and on the way we take in the magnificent Temples of Kom Ombo and<br />

Edfu. Finally, the High Dam. Aswan is rich with Nubian culture, Soviet technological might, and<br />

the beautiful Nile River. We walk the streets, shop in the shuk, and take a felucca ride on the<br />

river.<br />

A quick flight back to Cairo and we have one more day to enjoy shopping in the Grand Bazaar and<br />

gambling in the Marriot casino. The trip over, and our cravings for hieroglyphics and papyrus<br />

artwork satiated, we climb into the bus for another long journey back to Eretz Yisrael.<br />

wear a uniform like they do in civilized America,<br />

have a heart attack,<br />

be pretty bored every day.<br />

help the poor Hebrew Univ. students who don’t know any Hebrew<br />

keep the door open when people are getting on.<br />

quit!<br />

drive a bus.<br />

slam the door in someone’s face,<br />

steal the bus and use it as a car.<br />

paint a white line for people to stand behind,<br />

pass out Elite candy,<br />

play with my stick shift,<br />

be crazy,<br />

move to L.A.<br />

smile all day long,<br />

give the wrong directions.<br />

make Americans feel like guests in my country and<br />

exemplify the laid-back, tolerant, positive<br />

Israeli attitude found everywhere,<br />

learn how to drive,<br />

ask for radio requests.<br />

stop selling youth cartisim to all OYP students.<br />

Memories<br />

YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN ISRAEL WHEN..<br />

The toilet paper feels like sandpaper<br />

You wait two hours for a bus that comes every 10 minutes<br />

There’s no hot water for a week<br />

It’s 30 degrees and pouring rain in the middle of January and the heat goes on for 2 hours during<br />

the night<br />

You have shmira from 2:00-6:00 am<br />

You wait in line at the bank for hours and when it’s finally your<br />

turn, they close for their 4 hour lunch break<br />

You hear 3 beeps followed by the news for the hour<br />

You can’t get to sleep because someone’s car alarm keeps going off<br />

You’re standing in line at the moadon and Shimon Peres gets in line behind yoq<br />

You try to swim in a body of water and all you do is float<br />

You see sheep grazing outside your window<br />

You can buy a kilo of popcorn in the shuk for 1 NIS<br />

Shil-shul lasts more than a week<br />

An Arab in the shuk offers to buy you for 3 camels<br />

Every car parked in the street has funny pieces of cardboard in the windshield<br />

You can’t use American Express in most stores<br />

The license plates are color-coded blue or yellow<br />

The radio stations sign off with Hatikvah<br />

The doctor in the University Health Services is reading a romance novel when you walk in<br />

Milk comes in plastic bags


Memories<br />

Your New<br />

You start thinking of different ways to kill off the cats.<br />

Pushing and shoving in bus lines becomes second nature.<br />

You bring homework to the Foreign Accounts line at the bank.<br />

You plan your day around hot showers.<br />

You start going to your favorite hotel to steal the toilet paper.<br />

You start calling home only for money.<br />

You have to use a hot plate to heat your room.<br />

You eat pasta or shnitzel every day of the week.<br />

Everything in the veggie cafeteria starts tasting the same.<br />

Kraft macaroni and cheese suddenly becomes your favorite meal.<br />

The library is the noisiest room in Goldsmith.<br />

You wake up early Thursday morning to reserve books for the weekend.<br />

You give your Ffolocaust professor a 10 minute standing ovation.<br />

Radio Jordan News is the only news you understand.<br />

You find yourself spending weekends in Sinai or Egypt.<br />

There seems to be a surprise party for everyone’s birthday.<br />

You complain about the hard toilet paper.<br />

You seem to know everyone downtown on Saturday night.<br />

“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” is the hottest show in town.<br />

Your bio final gets cancelled because your professor was stoned by Arabs and is in the hospital.<br />

You pay 8 NIS for 4 batteries.<br />

You pay 20 NIS to get a roll of film developed.<br />

You start asking your Elebrew teacher on a date.<br />

You inform security that there are suspicious bags lying around.<br />

Your Friday evening source of entertainment is watching the Chareidim protest in front of Beit<br />

Agron.<br />

You stop complaining that there’s no ice in your glass of water.<br />

The weather fluctuates from hour to hour.<br />

You wonder when and where the next riot will take place.

Going Home<br />

“Have you been at any riots over there? W hat about the rock throwing—did you see it?” I had<br />

been home for three weeks and I must have heard these lines a million times. I was not totally<br />

surprised. I had come home expecting to have to face reactions to, and in many cases explain, the<br />

current Israeli action in the occupied territories. Yet I was totally unprepared for such trivial<br />

questions. In Israel, the discussion to which I was accustomed involved political and moral issues<br />

facing the country; at home I was reduced to embellishing sensationalist news to regale my<br />

friends with tales of harrowing escapes from imagined violence. So I talked and tried to enlighten<br />

the ignorant masses at home. Some listened; most, however, showed indifference. This showed<br />

me clearly that I had changed. Things that seemed so crucial to me here were not so back home. I<br />

was out of rhythm with my old friends. Returning to Israel I was much more comfortable with<br />

the pace of life, the values, and the awareness and involvement of my friends on the overseas<br />

programs. This is more im portant to me than the creature comforts of North America, for I<br />

found that while I was feeding my body I was starving my mind.<br />

As this year comes to a close and we head home, everyone will have to face this culture shock.<br />

Some will adapt quickly; others will not. All of us, I think, will miss our experience in Israel<br />

immensely. In the end, though, there is a powerful cure for our depressions: our memories. So if<br />

at home you start to feel down, open this yearbook, sit down with a beer and remember all the<br />

wonderful times. The Overseas Programs of <strong>1987</strong>-88—the best year of our lives. I’ll miss you<br />

all, and I’ll see you back in Israel.<br />

Mark Rubinstein


TAKE US HOME<br />

Whether you're a left-wing Ofeker or a conservative Giladnik, a visiting<br />

graduate student or a freshman just out of high school, we're the best<br />

set of memories you could have.<br />

Did you know:<br />

• You can enjoy a hearty meal of schnitzel, orez, and<br />

chips for under 6 NIS? (See "Frank Sinatra<br />

Cafeteria" under In d u s tria l S upplie rs)<br />

• You can stay comfortably in Jerusalem for under $4 a<br />

night? (See "Resnick" under N o H o t W ater)<br />

• You can swim on the beach and ski in a single day<br />

when visiting ... Oops^wrong book!<br />

• You can ride a bus from Jerusalem to Eilat for about<br />

14 NIS? (See "Midnight Bus" under Sleepless<br />

N ig h ts )<br />

On the Overseas Programs, you probably did!<br />

Don t miss these other LE T 'S GO Guides, which the Jerusalem Post has<br />

never heard of, but would probably consider a hideous waste of trees!<br />
