Settlements often face challenges integrating into the communities they are meant to serve. Jewish settlements have a significant advantage in this task. Offering Hebrew classes brings in children, which builds connections to their parents. Offering Yiddish and Jewish libraries brings in older people and especially immigrants. Finally, every settlement can and should publish a newspaper for its community.
