64 Students, Professionals Leave for Summer Program in Israel

Download PDF for this date

Sixty-four young American students and professionals who will participate in the Jewish Agency’s fifth annual summer programs, left for Israel in the last two days. The groups complete the roster of 136 enrollees in this year’s summer programs, 72 of whom went to Israel in June. This week’s group left Idlewild International Airport on two flights: Eighteen departing yesterday and 46 teen-age members of Young Judea today.

(A group of 108 students from the United States, Canada and various countries of Europe arrived in Jerusalem this week-end to take Jewish Agency-sponsored summer courses. Their visit is being made under the auspices of the Youth Aliyah.)
