President Izhak Ben-Zvi today received a group of 75 American boys who have been in Israel the last two months to tour the country and to be called up to their Bar Mitzvahs here. For the last five Sabbaths, they were called up to the Torah, in groups of 15, at the Yeshurun Synagogue here. The youths are departing for home tomorrow.
