American and Canadian Youths Arrive in Israel for One-year Service

Two groups of American and Canadian youth, totaling 75 young persons, have arrived in Israel as participants in the Jewish Agency’s “Service to the Jewish People” project. Two hundred more participants are due to come this summer for one-year service.

The participants will attend Hebrew courses in Ashkelon and then will be assigned to jobs in various parts of Israel in accordance with their training and interests. Toward the end of the year, they will be organized in several large groups, each working on a project, such as the rehabilitation of the ancient forest at Goren in Galilee.
