ticipants, and located 30
miles north of Eilat in the
Arava desert. Celebrating its
18th brithday, the kibbutz
emphasizes a communal en-
vironment where religious
pluralism, equality of oppor-
tunity, dedication to the
Jewish community, and a
commitment to building a
better Israel are its
foundations.
"I had a big problem at first
getting used to getting up
early here, meaning 5 a.m.,
but now I'm really enjoying
the kibbutz," .says Mr.
Shulman, smiling as he hauls
a bag of dates across the
fields. "They grow dates,
palmellos and mangos here —
I'm an expert date sorter
now."
In addition to the time
spent outside picking fruit, or
working in many other facets
of kibbutz life such as the kit-
chen, the kindergarten, or
even the laundry, the Year
Course participants spend
time learning Hebrew and
have special activities to
learn about Israeli history,
society and culture. Recently,
talking about peace in the
Middle East has been upper-

most in the student's minds.
"Because of Year Course, I
feel a stronger understanding
about Israeli history, and a
connection to the land," says
Mr. Shulman. "I can perceive
of how hard it will be in the
coming years to negotiate
peace, even though I am very
optimistic."
Young Judaea, the Zionist
youth movement sponsored
by Hadassah, conducts educa-
tional and leadership train-
ing programs and several
summer camps in the United
States. The Young Judaea
Year Course in Israel offers
high school graduates the op-
portunity to experience many
facets of Israeli life, from kib-
butz, moshav and develop-
ment town to Israeli society
and culture.

Farmers' Woes
Feed Anti-Semites

as the economic climate
worsens.
In 1985 and 1986, in par-
ticular, Jewish groups held
meetings with Christian
clergy and rural farm organ-
izations in efforts to combat
a rise in activities by racist,
anti-Semitic groups in the
nation's farm belt.
Much of the anti-Semitic
activity in the United States
was, and, to a lesser extent,
continues to be promulgated
by adherents of the Chris-
tian Identity movement, a
pseudo-Christian group that
is part of the virulently anti-
Semitic right. Spokesper-
sons of the movement told
American farmers their
troubles were created by a
Jewish conspiracy that
found its way into the U.S.
and world banking systems.
Among those groups mak7.
ing anti-Semitic inroads in
the American farm belt was
the Lyndon LaRouche cult,
which prophesied a
worldwide agricultural col-
lapse and mass starvation. A
LaRouche affiliate group,
the Schiller Organization,
tried to sign up farmers at
propaganda meetings
in Midwest rural com-
munities.

Sydney, Australia (JTA) —
Australian farmers have
become fair game for right-
wing extremists and anti-
Semitic groups because of
the ongoing depression in
the country's chief
agricultural products —
wheat and wool, Jewish
leaders were told last week.
A delegation of the Ex-
ecutive Council of
Australian Jewry met in
Canberra with Rock Farley,
executive director of the Na-
tional Farmers Federation,
the umbrella body of wheat
and sheep farmerS organiza-
tions.
He told them that the
wheat and sheep belt in the
eastern quarter of the coun-
try is in desperate straits be-
cause of the combined effects
of drought and the Euro-
pean-American trade war.
Anti-Semitic organizations
have taken advantage of the
despair to recruit members
searching for scapegoats,
Mr. Farley said. The farmers
find themselves turning to
"simplistic political solu-
tions," he explained.
The situation directly ech-
oes one that has existed in
the United States for some
time, becoming more intense
