New Israel Program for American High School Students Announced

A program for a year’s study in Israel for second year American high school students, beginning with the 1967-68 academic year, will be offered by the America-Israel Secondary School Program, it was announced here today by Rabbi Mordecai Chertoff, director of the newly organized group.

Two leading Israeli secondary schools, Alonei Yitzchak in the Shomron Valley about five miles from Caesaria, and Shafir’s Yeshivat Or-Etzion, in the Lachish area, near Ashkelon, are participating in the program. Both schools will offer full American second year high school programs augmented by special courses in the Hebrew language and Israeli studies. The curriculum to be offered has been approved by an advisory committee of noted American educators and will be supervised by the Israel Ministry of Education.
