Avukah to Hold National Summer School Camp

Download PDF for this date

A National Summer School Camp of the Avukah, American student Zionist organization, will be held this year at Camp Scopus on Lake George, from June 26 to July 6. The idea of a Summer School Camp arises out of the need felt by Avukah members for the crystalization of the concepts underlying the Zionist movement and for a deepening of the understanding of the values inherent in Zionist ideology, as well as the growing significance of the role of Palestine in Jewish life and in the world at large.

Among those who will deliver lectures at the camp will be Jacob de Haas, Dr. Shalom Spiegel, Louis Lipsky, Dr. Stephen S. Wise, James Waterman Wise, Samuel Blumenfeld, Maurice B. Pekarsky and Mitchell Salem Fisher. There will be two cycles of lectures, “Zionism and Palestine” and “Avukah and Jewish Youth.”
