Download PDF for this date

The New York office of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency is in receipt of a cablegram from Rabbi Israel Meyer Ha’Cohen of Radin, Poland, known by the name of his famous book “Chofetz Chaim,” appealing for financial support for the Yeshiva he maintains in that city.

“I beg to proclaim my intense suffering in my weak old age at seeing the financial distress of our Yeshiva which has 300 students. Its existence is at stake. Support is urgent. An American committee has been formed at 238 East Broadway, New York, where contributions may be directed,” the Rabbi’s telegram stated.
