American Zionist Students to Work with Youth on Jewish Education

Ten selected Jewish college students, members of the Student Zionist Organization, left their college campuses and homes yesterday for Fargo, North Dakota, for two weeks to work with the Jewish youth of that town and to enrich the Jewish education and Israel culture of that Jewish community.

The 10 students who are from all over the United States and Canada are members of the “SZO Domestic Jewish Education Corps.” In Fargo, they will staff a day camp for youngsters and will conduct an evening program for teenagers and an educational program for adults. On Friday night and Saturday, they will conduct cultural and religious programs. There are about 120 Jewish families in Fargo. The students are volunteers and will not be paid for their services.
