Organized in 1909 to help young American Jews develop healthy attitudes toward themselves, the Jewish people, and Israel. Its first president was Israel Friedlaender and such prominent Zionists as Henrietta Szold and Emanuel Newmann have been leaders. Under the auspices of Hadassah Zionist Youth Commission, Young Judea is provided with funds and administration, as well as with supervision and guidance. Young Judea provides cultural, religious, and recreational programs for Jewish young people up to age 18. It supports a youth farm in Israel for the benefit of Jewish scouts and those young Judeans who visit Israel. Young Judea maintains Tel Yehuda, a camp for high school youngsters which offers training in leadership. Young Judea sponsors both a summer-in-Israel course for seniors and a more intensive year-in-Israel course.
