Forty-nine students–including 31 girls–from about 20 American universities and colleges arrived in Israel today to participate in a special one-year course for American students at Hebrew University.

The participants include students from Harvard, Yale, Brandeis and Pennsylvania universities. Most of the colleges recognize the credits obtained at Hebrew University in Mid-Eastern subjects, Jewish history, philosophy and Hebrew literature.
