Twenty-five undergraduate students of five leading American Hebrew teacher colleges left for Israel yesterday for a six-month training seminar sponsored by the Jewish Agency. The group sailed aboard the liner Jerusalem of the Zim Israel Navigation Company. The students–13 men and 12 women–have completed their junior year and were selected by their respective colleges, on the basis of academic records, to participate in the seminar.
