Project Otzma
Meetings Set

Informational meetings
about Project Otzma, a
volunteer service program
in Israel for young adults,
will take place later this
Men and women in their
early 20s who are inter-
ested in working and
studying in Israel can
learn about Otzma at the
Michigan State University
Hillel on Jan. 20 and at
the University of
Michigan Hillel Jan. 21.
Both meetings will be at 7
p.m. In addition, a
Detroit-area meeting will
be scheduled for later in
Now in its eighth year,
Project Otzma (Hebrew for
strength) is designed to
strengthen the bonds
between North American
communities and Israel
through volunteer service.
It is coordinated by the
Council of Jewish Feder-
ations and administered
locally through the Israel
Desk of the Jewish
Federation of Metro-
politan Detroit. The pro-
gram's curriculum is con-
tinually changing to meet
the current needs of
Israeli society.
In the beginning, partic-
ipants spend 3 1/2 months
on a centrally-located kib-
butz with an ulpan course
to acquire the fundamen-
tals of the Hebrew lan-
guage combined with inte-
gration into all aspects of
kibbutz life. Afterward,
they spend seven weeks
tutoring and working with
students at a Youth
Aliyah village, which acts
as a home to immigrant
teens and a boarding
school for Israelis. For
another seven weeks, they
will work in absorption
(resettlement) centers
with Ethiopian and Rus-
sian families.
Three options are avail-
able for the two-month
pioneering track: working
with new immigrants from
the former USSR and
Ethiopia; volunteering on
young kibbutzim in the
Arava Desert or the
Galilee; or working in new
industrial sites in develop-
ing areas of the country.
The program will con-
clude with a three-month
residency working on com-
munity projects in
Detroit's Project Renewal
neighborhood of Neot
Shazar in Yavne. They
live in the project area

and work in service pro-
grams, such as assisting
in or after school, in an
absorption center, at a
community center, or at a
home for the elderly.
Israeli educators, politi-
cians, scientists, authors
and artists meet with the
group throughout the year
at seminars, conferences
and on tiyulim (excur-
sions) focusing on Israel's
land, history and people.
Project Otzma is spon-
sored by the Israel Forum
and the Council of Jewish
Federations. It is under
the local auspices of the
Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit and
funded in part by the
United Jewish Found-
ation. Cosponsoring orga-
nizations include the
World Zionist Organi-
zation and the Jewish
Agency for Israel.

Project Otzma, call Sivan
