Vacationing teachers constitute more than one-third of the 73 Americans taking summer courses at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem conducted by the American-Israel University Program under the auspices of the American Friends of the Hebrew University, it was reported today by Prof. Oscar J. Janowsky and Dr. Henry Sonneborn, co-chairmen of the program.

In addition to 28 college, high school and elementary school teachers, the participants include 12 graduate students, 18 college undergraduates, as well as members of various professions, including the ministry, rabbinate, social work, law and business.
