Sixty-six American Catholic clergymen, including five bishops, will leave for Israel for a four-day visit, the Israel Government Tourist Bureau reported here today. They will arrive there on October 21.

The visit to Israel will follow the Centennial Jubilee re-union of the North American College, a school for the training of Catholic clergy from North America, which will be celebrated in Rome by 1,300 such clergy starting tomorrow.
