Download PDF for this date

A conference of the directors to discuss the present critical financial situation of the Yeshiva College was held Sunday at the College, and several thousand dollars were raised among the directors to cover the immediate financial obligations of the Yeshiva, such as payment of salaries due teachers, etc., and it was decided to start a $250,000 Emergency Fund Membership Campaign to put the Yeshiva on a solid financial basis in the future. The annual budget of the Yeshiva is $400,000, $150,000 of which the directors will raise among themselves.

Among those who contributed $5,000 each at Sunday’s conference were: Commissioner of Education Samuel Levy, Louis Gold, Harry Fischel and Meyer Wesel; $3,000, Joseph Folstein; $2,000, Bernard London; $1,000, Isaac Folstein and Mendel Gottesman.

An appeal to orthodox Jews throughout the United States and Canada to become contributing members to the Yeshiva College has been issued by the Alumni organization of the institution.
