(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Yeshiva of Hundsdorf, near Kaesmark, in existence since 1878, was closed by an order of the authorities since it was found that the buildings housing the Talmudic academy do not meet the hygienic and fire prevention requirements.

Established by Rabbi Rosenberger, the Yeshiva of Hundsdorf was known throughout Europe. Ten thousand rabbis are said to have been graduated from the institution of learning.
