(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

“Ha’Zefirah,” the only Hebrew daily published in Europe, has suspended publication. The publishers declared that the paper had been temporarily discontinued because of financial difficulties and the illness of the editor, J. Hoftman.

The laying of the cornerstone of the new temple Beth-El at Ithaca, N. Y. was held Sunday. Charles Polakoff of Buffalo, general chairman of the campaign which raised the funds for the temple, presided. Congressman Myer Jacobstein of Rochester delivered the principal address.
