was just honored by
President Yitzhak Navon
for the outstanding work of
its staff in preventing youth
from dropping out of the
program. "Educators in Is-
rael have become concerned
about 'absorption shock,"
which students suffer when
they feel that they do not fit
into the school society," she
explained. At Meier
Shefeyah it is caused by the
different ethnic and social
backgrounds of children,
who are 12 and 13 years old.
To meet this problem the

New Schoolhouse Wing Dedicated at Ramat Hadassah Szold

A new schoolhouse wing
was recently dedicated at
Ramat Hadassah Szold. The
addition was only one of
several that Hadassah
added to its Youth Aliyah
installations in the past
year. Ramat Hadassah
Szold is a residential youth
village established in 1949
as an absorbtion and screen-
ing camp for Youth Aliyah
children who came to Israel

as part of the mass immi-
gration of that period. Later
its focus was shifted to re-
medial education for disad-
vantaged youth at the low-
est level of achievement.

The youngsters help- in
the maintenance of the vil-
lage, which adds to their
sense of community and
pride in their surroundings.

While Youth Aliyah itself
continues to change, adapt-
ing its curriculum to Israel's
changing needs, one thing
remains a constant: Youth
Aliyah cares for each
youngster as an individual
with enormous potential
and this has resulted in
each one becoming an
achiever. There are 211,000
successful Youth Aliyah
graduates to date.

CAMP YOUNG JUDAEA — Camp Young Judaea is located in Ortonville, Michigan, one half
hour north of Detroit. This site offers clean air, blue skies and borders the Meadowbrook
Conservation Reserve. Children can truly appreciate nature and the out-of-doors on our
120-acre campus. They can take advantage of our hiking trails, lake, camp sites, and many
other sports and recreational facilities. A full camping and educational program is offered,
with special attention to the emotional and physical well-being of the individual camper.
Convenient transportation from major cities in the Midwest is arranged to and from
Camp Young Judaea.

— We are very proud of the physical facilities at Camp Young Judaea, however,
the true uniqueness of our Camp Is in the program. Field trips, scouting, arts and crafts
and other activities create the opportunity for true learning to take place, through the In-
teraction of the camper, not only with his peers, but with the counseling staff as well.
Camp Young Judaea is deeply committed to Jewish values and tradition. Programming
is structured toward Jewish content through special activities centered around our
heritage in both the United States and Israel. Campers can relate to, and live, Judaism
through participation in projects such as re-enacting the birth of the State of Israel,
building a model kibbutz, and the experiences of Roots Day, Zionism Day, Social Action
Day, and others. The beauty and meaning of Shabbat takes on special significance as It Is
observed in a natural setting. Hebrew becomes a living language as it is integrated into
everyday vocabulary and automatically absorbed.
Camp Young Judaea is more than a camp. Our program is a total experience which your
child will talk about for years to come.
