Notes Israel Integrates Her New Immigrants (narrative only)

For many years Israel was a country of immigration and in its first 20 years the population trebled. While immigration was Israel's greatest goal, integration of all these new peoples was Israel's great challenge. The cultures, languages, backgrounds, moral and ethical standards all had to be melded to make Israel one united population. The New Immigrants Club (Mauodom Ha'oleh) is a place where those new to the Country can go to have integration problems resolved. The manager of the Club is interviewed and explains to the narrator the process of the aid given to these incoming people. It was felt that the main difficulty with the new people was not one of economics, but was one of social difficulties, primarily learning the ways of Israel as opposed to the ways of their former countries.
