U.S. Mission Helps to Train Hotel and Tourist Personnel in Israel

The United States Operations Mission has allocated $90, 000 in equipment and the services of five experts to aid three of four schools opening next fall for the training of Israeli hotel and tourist personnel, it was announced here today.

According to the Government Tourist Corporation, the demand for trained personnel in the field has exceeded the number of graduates of the few existing courses of study. El Al Israel National Airlines alone requires 80 additional air stewards and there is a growing demand for guides throughout the country.

The schools will offer a two-year course in hotel management, courses in catering and hotel trades and will include a school for tourism. The schools are planned to accommodate 700 students.
