United We Stand


Nearly twice as many residents as last year intend to participate in the We Stand With Israel trip next month, Federation Executive Director Bunnie Mauldin said,adding that "despite what's going on politically or war with Iraq on the horizon, our aim is the same."

The trip is an opportunity for people to show their support.

"There is no more important time for American Jews to visit Israel and let the people of Israel know they are not alone. This is the time to go," she said.

Lou Weiss, the Federation's president, thinks the group should be making an annual Israel pilgrimage.

Mauldin is optimistic a 40-seat bus will be filled to capacity for the 10-day trip, compared to 22 who went last December.

During the first leg of this $2,530-per-person trip, participants will hear firsthand analysis of the Middle East situation in briefings by top-level officials. The mission will also tour the Golan, Tiberias and Safed in northern Israel and visit the Federation's sister cities, Kiryat Malachi and Hof Ashkelon.
