The Jewish Agency launched its "Derech Eretz" six-month educational program for high school graduates on Monday, which brings together youth from all corners of Israeli society to come learn together in the Negev community of Nitzana before their army service, a spokesman from the organization said in a statement that afternoon.

During the first day, the 25 inaugural participants – many of whom are from the periphery, immigrant families, youth villages and lower income groups – hiked together up to Tel Nitzana for their evening opening ceremony, according to the statement.
