Download PDF for this date

A party of 58 young American and Canadian Jews returned here today from a ten-month study program in Israel under the sponsorship of Habonim, the Zionist youth movement. During their stay in Israel the youngsters worked and studied at various settlements and institutions.

The Jewish Agency announced today that the Teachers Institute of Yeshiva University here will give eight semester hours credit to those of its students who participate in the Israel Summer Institute sponsored by the Agency’s youth department. The institute is now in its sixth consecutive year.
