Ancient Swiss Castle Houses Yeshivah

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Yesiva “Etz Chaim.” which was founded about a year ago in Montreux by the Orthodox Jews of Switzerland, has now acquired on a long-term lease the famous Quisisana Castle situated in a park on the banks of Lake Geneva.

The Yeshiva has thirty-five students, twenty-five belonging to Switzerland, with a budget of 50,000 Swiss Francs.
