95 Young Americans Join ‘service to Israeli People’ in Two Groups

The Sherut La’Am “Service to the People” program said today that 39 young American Jews, aged 19 to 39, left for Israel this month for a year of service to Israel under the program. They will join another group of 56 American Jews who went to Israel in June, making a total of 95 taking part in the program for 1966-67. Members of the second group, college students and graduates, volunteered to work either in a collective settlement or in new settlement towns.
