Indianapolis Indiana Jewish Post (Newspaper) - August 18, 1972, Indianapolis, Indiana29c per copy published weekly a it $14 per Tea Indiana jewish Rostand opinion Quot if you let the people know they can act shalom. Today is Friday August 18, 1972 611 n. Park ave. Me 4-1307 a xxxix no 40town crier by . Cohen we now learn that Beth Al too will be sponsoring a trip to Israel and it will be in conjunction with the tour of the Indianapolis hebrew congregation. The Cost for the 14-Day Winter recess tour is $650, and no doubt Many parents will be taking advantage of this Opportunity. We also learn that the federation turned Down subvention ing the program for a summer tour which is what other communities Are doing and that at least one rabbi in the Community was quite upset. We do not wish to be harsh with the federation Board but we do feel that the Community has a right to know that there was this rejection and even who it was on the Board of the federation who voted against the program. In this Way at the next election to the Board the voting could be based on the question of whether the will of the Community is somehow being subverted for it must be Clear that the vast majority of those in the Indianapolis jewish Community will approve of a $10,000 subvention which would enable this Community to follow in the footsteps of other communities which few years have been providing $200 and More to lower the Cost of the trip so that Many More kids can participate. Regardless of the federations indifference a in our View a to the will of the Community we Hope that there will be a Large group that will go to Israel this december. Provision somehow is being made for scholarships for these youngsters whose parents cannot afford the full Tariff. By Nai torah is also arranging a tour but it will be next summer the kind that allows ample time for study and touring and gives the youngsters the feeling of living in the jewish state instead just of touring. Just in Case the federation tries to say that they Are still considering subvention ing a trip to Israel for our Young people Here is a text of a report of a meeting held on oct. 26, 1970, which was called at the insistence of Martin Larner then federation president. A it was established through discussion that the actual Cost of a trip to Israel for 7-8 weeks from Indianapolis runs around $1.000 per person. It was agreed that the trip should be subsidized. The trip under consideration was described by or. Aviv and would include one week on a Kibbutz and the remaining time spent in travelling and educational projects. There would be some preparation for the trip prior to leaving Indianapolis in the nature of orientation regarding the history and sociology of Israel. Or Aviv indicated that the trip should be set up in groups of 20 participants with one Leader from the Community. A Leader will be added in Israel. The Leader from the Community will travel free of charge. A in Israel the group will join three other groups so that there will be 80 travelling and living together in Israel. There will be opportunities for meetings with israeli teenagers. Or. Aviv assured us that Security rules would be closely observed and that the groups would not be taken in any areas where there would be question regarding their safety. He indicated that Columbus Ohio is planning a trip and suggested that the two groups might Combine. It was agreed that Kash Ruth will be observed and that there will be no travel on the Sabbath. While there will be no official programming on the Sabbath each individual group can plan its own appropriate program. A the group requested that or. Aviv Send us a specific itinerary and program. There will be a screening committee which will act on applications but the Only criteria will be the ability to fit into a group and the individuals behaviour. The age group to be represented on this trip would be from 16-18, or Sophomore through senior year in High school. The executive committee of the Jef is to be asked for an allocation of a 50 per cent subsidy for each individual going on the trip. Assuming a group of 20 people this represents an allocation of $10,000. There is a possibility that further subsidy might be Given by other individual organizations such As agencies temples etc., in addition to the Basic Jef 50 per cent subsidy. A it was indicated that participants in this trip would be Given preferential treatment for hiring by the agencies and temples. It was agreed that further discussion should be held regarding the question of what we want As a Community As a result of this trip.
