Supporting Israel

Creativity, generosity mark wide range of activities.


In a display of creativity and generosity, several Jewish groups in Orange County in recent weeks set out to demonstrate their unswerving support for Israel. Calling a suggestion by Israel's minister of tourism to visit hospitals a "wet blanket," Fullerton travel agency owner Pnina Schichor instead lined up an awareness-raising tour of the sort she, herself, would like. "Injured people don't want gawking strangers," she concludes after returning in May from a planning trip, during which she sensed the isolation of Israeli citizens. "I want them to know we're standing with them," says Shichor, who organized a trip for members of MERIT, Middle Eastern Reporting in Truth, a media-watch group she and her husband, David, co-founded last August.
