page_& HES!TAGE.F!orida Jewish News: August !. 1980 Small 'United Nations' Found at Camp JCC Foreign Delegations Compare Old, New Homes It resembles a small version of the United Nations. One without speeches, without controversial votes and without walkouts. In fact, when the foreign delegations of Camp JCC meet, the only issues they have to agree on are to meet new friends and enjoy the camp's activities. The Belgium delegation, made up of 13-year-old Sacha, I l-year-old Sabrina, 10-year- old Stephanie, and nine-year- old Steevy Polakoff, arrived in the United States July 8. Before moving to Belgium, where they lived for four years, the Polakoff family lived in Portugal. They all agree that they would rather live in the United States instead of Belgium. "It rains all the time there (Belgium) and snows," they said. They like the heat here, and not only that, people are "more polite here. We like the sun, and, oh yes, the attractions." There is one U.S. phenomenon they don't like, however, that is "McDonald's hambur, SHIRIN JAVA HERI Shirin Javaheri, who will be 13-years-old this month, left her home in Iran about a year ago to come live in the United States. The U.S. is her"second choice" as faras a placeto live, she said, however, her first choice no longer exists. She'd rather be in Iran, that is, the Iran she knew before the current political situation. "1 miss my friends and my parents who are still in Iran," she said. SACHA (! to r), POLAKOFF. STEPHANIE, SABRINA and STEEVY VICKI STRASHNOV Shirin likes the schools in Iran better. Here the "teachers and students are colder." In fact, she said she has found many people in the U.S. to be cold and unfriendly. Thirteen-year-old Vicki Strashnov from Russia has been in the U.S. since October. "Education was much better in Russia ... you learned more there," Vicki said. But in the U.S. there is "more freedom." She would like to go back to Russia, but only for a few rnonths, to see her friends. Vicki would rather live in the LI.S. "America is like a big country," according to five- year-old Tomar Seiffon, who arrived in the U.S. four weeks ago from Israel. And besides, "America has Disney World." Although Tomar misses his friends in Israel, he doesn't miss the cold weather. "I like the hot weather here ... I want to stay here."

She likes everything about America, especially Disney World. Maylan visits her cousins and her mother's family in Puerto Rico every year. The Canadian delegation Js made up of ] 0-year-old Jason and five-year-old Noah Rosenblatt, and Ory Schwartz, age 10. They have been here for three years, but all agree they would "rather go back to Canada" and just visit Disney World every once in a while. "'Schools were harder in Canada," they said. "Jewish camps were hard, temples more orthodox and there were strictly kosher restaurants." They also miss the snow. Jason, however, likes Florida "because it has lots of snakes. I love snakes; I have two of them," he said.
