Download PDF for this date

Twenty-three American student teachers who spent the last six months at a training seminar in Israel under the auspices of the Jewish Agency returned home today.

The group consists of members of the senior classes of five leading Hebrew teachers colleges in the United States who were selected on the basis of their academic records to participate in the seminar. The students will receive a full semester’s credit for their work in Israel.

The seminar is an annual project sponsored by the Department of Education and Culture of the Jewish Agency in New York, designed to provide advanced training in the Hebrew language, Jewish history, classroom methods and other subjects in Israel. The schools participating in the seminar are: Yeshiva University, the Jewish Theological Seminary of America and the Herzlia Teacher’s Training College, all in New York City, the Hebrew Teachers’ College of Boston and the Hebrew Teachers’ College of Chicago.
