WZO Youth Dept.
Re-shaping Goals

By BARBIE ZELIZER

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The head of the World
Zionist Organization's
youth and hehalutz de-
partment contends that
Jewish youth must look be-
yond their movement affili-
ations and focus on the one
basis commitment which
unites them — Zionism.
Avraham Katz, depart-
ment head and Likud (Lib-
eral) Knesseter, observed
"It is imperative that the 12
percent of world Jewish
youth who belong to Zionist
youth movements unite
above and beyond their
specific loyalties to their
movements. The depart-
ment will assist in this ap-
proach by having move-
ment emissaries simul-
taneously serve more than
one youth movement during
their two-year stints
abroad."
The move, Katz acknowl-
edges, has in part been
necessitated by the severe
budget cuts recently im-
posed on the department,
resulting in a 20 percent re-
duction in the number of
emissaries who can be sent
abroad by the department
each year. (These emis-
saries include both those
sent to represent the 11
different youth movements
as well as th6se who serve
Jewish federations and
community centers.)
Moreover, at present,
" Katz says, the limited emis-
sary personnel is not being
fully utilized. He cites the
recent transfer of a
Habonim (Labor youth
movement) emissary from
Santiago, Chile, where he
served along with three
other representatives from
his movement, to Buenos
Aires, where Habonim was
not represented at all.
"The department must
see to it that there is a logi-
cal distribution of emis-
saries," he notes. "And we
must be realistic and send
the emissaries to the places
in which they will be most
successful."
Katz has plans for the ex-
pansion of the department's
Jerusalem leadership insti-
tute for youth (which brings
youth from abroad for lead-
ership training in Israel),
the building of a third lead-
ership school in Paris (in
addition to those already es-
tablished in Jerusalem and
Buenos Aires), and the in-
stitution of a centralized
unit for screening emissary
applicants which will
supervise from Jerusalem
the individuals selected for
emissary work abroad.
The leadership institute,
meanwhile, is the only sec-
tion of the department
whose budget has not been
cut.
Another major activity of
the youth and hehalutz de-
partment is what it calls
"mifalei Hakaitz," or short-
term summer programs for
high school youth. These
constitute an important
way of introducing teena-
gers to Israel.

MOT (Maintenance of
ORT Training) supports
ORT's top level high school

Katz stresses the pro-
gram's "educational dimen-
sion," which acquaints the
participants with historical
aspects of the country and
introduces them to Israeli
youth, with whom they
work side by side for a two-
week period. This year,
some 8,000 teenagers vis-
ited Israel through the
summer programs.
One of the most -sensitive
issues among department
'staff members since Katz
assumed his position last
year (meanwhile stepping
out of the running for the
chairmanship of his party's
Knesset caucus), has been
whether or not he would
exercise his power to influ-
ence the department along
Likud's ideological line.
Katz is vehement in his
denial of any such conten-
tion. "Nonsense," he ob-
serves, noting that any al-
leged reconstitution of the
movement emissaries in
favor of the Likud-aligned
youth movements is out of
the question.
The proportionate con-
stitution of the movement
emissaries is determined
according to an established
key, fixed according to each
movement's size and poten-
tial influence."
Indeed, a recently-drafted
emissary index which con-
veys the extent to which the
number of movement emis-
saries will be reduced,
shows that these proposed
reductions are proportion-
ate to ratios followed in the
past.
Katz runs the department
together with his director
general, Shimshon Zeevi.
Zeevi, who lived for many
years in Texas, where he
worked informally in the
field of Jewish education,
was brought back to Israel
specifically for his new job.
"I know Israel best," says
Katz. "And I needed some-
one with skills which could ,
complement mine. Zeevi is
well acquainted with the
problem and character of
the largest Jewish commu-
nity in the world, and that is
very important. After all,
the role of the youth and
hehalutz department is to
serve everyone who works
with Jewish youth through-
, out the world."
