A group of 25 young American rabbis, all Orthodox, left here for Israel last night for three years of advanced studies at the Israel Torah Research Institute, at Jerusalem.

They were awarded special scholarships under a pro gam conducted by the Institute and the immigration department of the Jewish Agency. The scholarship winners were all between the ages of 19 and 25.
