at Hillel Brunch Series
According to Lewin, there are
now approximately 5,000 young
people between the ages of 14 and
18 enrolled in Noar Lenoar. All of
them are secondary school stu-
dents. The principal activity of
Noar Lenoar has been rendering
of volunteer services by the youth
of Israel to disadvantaged youth,
such as boys and girls from immi-
grant families and the physically
and mentally handicapped.
The work is now being broad-
ened to include volunteer services
to the aged and other adults, co-
operation with Arab youth groups
in Israel, and the establishment of
close relationships with Jewish
youth in the Diaspora—particu-
larly in North America.
