Students' Hangout


To the Editor: Three suicide bombers blew themselves and others to bits on Ben Yehuda Street (front page, Sept. 5). They stood on one of Jerusalem's busiest streets and demanded our attention; they sure got mine. During the 1995-96 academic year I, along with thousands of other American Jews, studied abroad in Israel. We hung out in all the "cool" spots. The "coolest" spot of all was Ben Yehuda Street. When reports of the bombings came in, I knew that I had stood in that exact spot countless times while I was in Israel.September 8, 1997
