Hadassah Youth Center on Mount Scopus Will Receive Americans, First Guests from Abroad

The Hadassah Youth Center, the first structure to be restored on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem since the June, 1967 war, will receive its first guests from abroad this month–a group of 130 American students who are leaving for Hadassah-sponsored summer programs in Israel July 7. Mrs. Everett A. Kalb, chairman of the organization’s youth activities department, said the students, ranging in age from 15-18, are travelling under scholarships granted by the Hadassah Zionist Youth Commission for work and study in Israel. Some senior members of the group will work in kibbutzim, attend lectures and seminars and work at archaeological excavations, Mrs. Kalb said. Others will work and study under a seven-week “tour for teenagers” program.
