Thirty-three Americans between 14 and 16 have left for Israel to start a year of high school study in Israel at the Alonei Yitzhak Secondary School near Caesarea, under the American-Israel secondary school program of the Department of Education and Culture of the Jewish Agency for Israel. Twenty-eight are enrolled for second-year high school studies and five for third-year work.

The program, launched during last year for 10th grades, will offer courses for both 10th(sophomore and 11th (junior) year studies in the 1968-69 school year. Two additional groups will leave New York later this year, and the final enrollment will total 50 — 35 sophomores and 15 juniors.
