Micha Malben School in Israel Teaches Arab Deaf
THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
32—Friday, July 12, 1968
Enrollees Accepted for Second Center 'Term'
The group services division an-
nounces registration is being held
for session two (July 30-Aug. 23)
of the Jewish Center's activities
for first graders through junior
high school. Home transportation
is available on new buses.
Among the programs in ses-
sion two is Camp of the Arts,
a daily program from 9:30 a.m.
to 4 p.m. for junior high students
to learn and develop creative
skills. Each participant chooses
subjects from areas of perform-
jug arts (dramatics, dance and
music) and the visual arts (sculp-
ture, jewelry metalcraft, draw-
ing and painting and ceramics).
An Arab child in Israel is shown being taught to "hear" and speak in front of a mirror at a
Micha school for the deaf as her parents watch. Micha is one of the voluntary agencies in Israel aided,
both with professional and financial help, by Malben, the Joint Distribution Committee welfare pro-
gram which aids aged, ill and handicapped newcomers in Israel with United Jewish Appeal funds.
Micha, which was set up in Israel in 1961, not only includes pre-school Arab youngsters, but also trains
Arab teachers to work in this highly specialized field. In addition, a newly opened school for speech
therapists in Tel Aviv, also aided by JDC-Malben, is helping to relieve the critical shortage of profes-
sionally trained personnel in this field. There are Micha branches in TelAviv and Beersheba, and ef-
forts are being made by Micha and JDC-Malben to open additional schools in Natanya and Nazareth.
