erusalem — The heroic
defense of the tiny
Galilee settlement of
Tel-Hai against an Arab attack
in 1920 has left its imprint on
the annals of Zionism. Perhaps
the most famous settlement in
the history of the land of Israel,
Tel-Hai, is commemorated on a
special day, the eleventh day of
the Hebrew month of Adar (fal-
ling this year on February 20).
Its stockade and cemetery are
visited yearly by thousands who
admire the steadfast spirit
which propelled its settlers first
to defend Tel-Hai, and then to
return to resettle it less than a
year after they were forced to
abandon their homes.
Sixty-six years after the de-
feat of Tel-Hai and the death of
six of its defenders, a more pro-
saic achievement is being added
to the historical and idealistic
significance of Tel-Hai. The
Tel-Hai Regional College
founded at the site in 1960 is
bringing higher education up to
the hills of the Galilee. In addi-
tion to the great-grandchildren
of those who fought to farm
these hills, many students from
all corners of Israel — 2,500 in
all — are being attracted to
studies in the Galilee.
"For many years, the Galilee
has faced problems of isolation
and distance from the center of
Israel," says Herzl Ben-Asher,
dean of students and secretary
of the college. Ben-Asher, resi-
dent of nearby Kiryat Shemona,
explained that bright students
from Kiryat Shemona and other
development towns usually
travel to the center of the coun-
try to learn professional skills
and very often do not return to
build up the work force of the
Galilee.
"At Tel-Hai, we are trying to
overcome the exodus of talented
people by providing a local
learning center for residents,"
he continued. It is hoped that
young, skilled workers will re-
main home in the Galilee, and
many of the technical courses of-
fered at Tel-Hai will provide
tools needed in the local market.
Ben-Asher explained that
even more serious than the se-
curity risks of living on the
Lebanese border are the social
problems that gnaw away at life
in Galilee development towns.
"Unemployment is rampant
today in the Galilee, and that is
why Tel-Hai must tailor its
courses to teach skills that are
of top priority in the labor mar-
ket," he said.
Tel-Hai functions as a branch
of Haifa University, with hun-
dreds of students studying aca-
demic subjects toward a variety
of degrees. Taking into account
the outstanding agriculture of
the Galilee, the Regional Col-
lege's Institute of Agricultural
Research (under the auspices of
the Hebrew University) enables
local farmers to take courses
closer to home. Well-equipped
laboratories also provide local

j

agronomists with facilities to
study new crops, orchards, soil
and water.
According to Ben-Asher, Is-
raeli society has an obligation to
ex-soldiers who have served
their country, and one of the
most innovative programs at
Tel-Hai is a National Preparat-
ory School for Demobilized
Soldiers. The program attracts
veterans from all over the coun-
try who have not completed
high school, annually helping
enarly 400 demobilized soldiers
to buckle down and prepare for
a career. Tel-Hai's remedial
courses give soldiers a second
chance at an education, often
leading to employment oppor-
tunities as well as advanced
educational pursuits. Dormitory
facilities are provided in Kiryat
Shemona in the form of rental
apartments, and the very
presence of the students in town
is exerting a positive influence.
This program has already
earned the college the prestigi-
ous President's Award for its
achievements.
Creativity and expression are
also being encouraged in the
Galilee within the well-known
Arts Institute at Tel-Hai. Over
1,000 students ranging in age
from their teens to well past re-
tirement age squeeze into
courses including Plastic Arts,
Painting, Sculpture, Photog-
raphy, Textile, Dance and
Drama at the Institute's small
facility. The vitality of the stu-
dents help to provide a creative
environment that makes up for
the limited physical space avail-
able.
And framed up high in the
hills of the Galilee, the natural
setting of the campus of Tel-Hai
is itself inspirational. With the
Regional College located only a
stone's throw from the settle-
ment's original stockade and the
cemetery in which its defenders
are buried, it is obvious that
Tel-Hai will have innumerable
lessons both old and new to
teach for many years to come.
