Download PDF for this date

The remains of Leo Pinsker, one of the earliest leaders of the Zionist movement, will be given their last resting place within the grounds of the Hebrew University on Mt. Scopus, it was learned today. They were recently brought here from Russia.

The site was chosen by Dr. Judah L. Magnes, president of the university, and M. M. Ussishkin, veteran Zionist leader and head of the Jewish National Fund.
