Immigrants and Disadvantaged Aided by Youth Aliya

JERUSALEM — "It's
good to be among Jews,"
Abraham declared. "We
want to be good soldier,s,
good citizens and sports
champions. Israel will be
proud of us."
Abraham is one of 35
Ethiopian Jewish
youngsters who spent last
summer in "camp" at Tal-
piot Hadera Youth Aliya
Village. Like the others in
the group, he'd arrived in
Israel two years before, and
spoke fluent Hebrew. Recal-
ling his arrival, he said, "It
was like a dream. We clap-
ped our hands and we sang.
The older ones ki\ssed the
soil of Eretz Israel. Israeli
authorities were waiting for
us, they invited us to eat
and provided us with ac-
commodations."
What were the first real
difficulties? "The lan-

Aliya committees raised
about $5 million toward the

The Jewish Agency con-
tributes between 60-100
percent of the actual cost' of
maintenance of youngsters
in Youth Aliya, according to
the type of institution, and
whether or not it is owned
by the Agency. In those
facilities where Youth
Aliya students make up at
least 40 percent of the popu-
lation, the Agency also con-
tributes to the costs for re-
novations and repairs, in
addition to food and clo-
thing expenses, celebra-

Youth Aliya helps them
regain a sense of security
and of self-esteem, bridg-
ing the gap between them
and other children.
As Israel's social prob-
lems changed over the
years, Youth Aliya adapted
its programs to meet the
new challenges. Its basic
strategy has, nonethelesi,
remained consistent: caring
for children mainly in resi-
dential institutions, youth
villages, and kibutzim.
In 1982,1close to 18,000
young people, mostly in the
12-18 age group, were cared
for in 34 youth villages and
boarding schools, 109
yeshivas (the largest group
in Youth Aliya), over 300
kibutzim, a number of
moshavim and 20 full-day
centers. Students unable to
cope with the usual educa-
tional framework are cared
for in six residential educa-
tional 'institutions.

from various sources. Over
