25 American Youths Return from Nine-month Study in Israel

Download PDF for this date

Twenty-five American Jewish youths were given a welcome here last night by Habonim, Labor Zionist youth organization, upon their return from Israel where they completed a nine-month work and study course. They attended the Sixth Youth Workshop in Israel as members of Habonim.

The Youth Workshop in Israel offers high school graduates an opportunity to live in Israel like the Israelis themselves and promises a firsthand acquaintance with the young Jewish state. The greater part of the nine-month program is spent in part-time agricultural work and part-time study at Kibbutz Kfar Blum; the balance of the period is devoted to study seminars, educational trips, and excursions throughout Israel.
