As a parent of an Oranim participant, I would like to say that Oranim is irresponsible. Ofer Gutman should admit to the fact that many of the Oranim participants are habitual drug and alcohol users/abusers - even dealing in the sale of illegal substances while on the program. In addition, some participants are mentally unstable (as my child's roommate was) and are being medicated without appropriate medical supervision. Oranim's screening of participants is lax at best and the Oranim administration is negligent in its duties! The Israeli government should re-evaluate is support of such a program!
