Rabbis Kook and Sonnenfeld Ask Palestine Support for Yeshivas

Rabbi Abraham Kook, chief rabbi of Palestine, and Rabbi J. C. Sonnenfeld, chief Ashkenazic rabbi of Jerusalem, today issued for the first time a joint appeal to the Jews of Palestine to support the rabbinical seminaries in the country in view of the diminution of support from America as a result of the economic depression there.

The appeal says, “Four thousand of Jerusalem’s most precious sons, pillars of the faith and of the Torah, are suffering acute privations.”
