Thirty-nine American and Canadian youths left yesterday by plane for a year’s work, study and travel with the Haboaim Youth Workshop in Israel at Kibbutz Gesher Haziv.

The Workshop was arranged by Habonim, the North American Labor Zionist Youth organization. This, the 14th Youth Workshop in Israel, brought to nearly 800 the number of young students of post high school and college age who have participated in the program, sponsored by Habonim with the cooperation of the Jewish Agency in Israel.
