Download PDF for this date

There are thousands of teen-agers in Israel in danger of becoming delinquents, but the joint efforts of the Israel Government and the Working Women’s Council is “slowly but surely” directing them towards a “healthy, constructive life,” Mrs. Bathsheva Vilenski, told a press conference here yesterday.

Mrs. Vilenski, director of the Working Women’s Council vocational training program for youth, has just arrived in the U.S. for a six-month tour for the Pioneer Women, American sister organization of the Council. She reported that many of the youth of recent immigrants to Israel “find it easy to justify anti-social acts” because of the basic insecurity they have suffered in their former environments.
