Isador Knopf, in a will filed for probate yesterday devoted a large portion of his estate to a fund for the benefit of Jewish students.

The fund, to be known as the Isador and Flora Memorial Scholarship Fund, will provide “free scholarships to any college or university for deserving young men and young women of Jewish faith who shall find themselves financially unable to pay tuition for their education.”

Several paragraphs of Knopf’s will explain why he bequeathed nothing to various relatives whom he said he had already assisted.

He left $300 to his attorney, A. Alfred Wasserman, who is to be one of the trustees of the scholarship fund, and $500 each to a niece and nephew, Hattie Littlefield and Joseph Davidson.

Knopf also created a $2,000 trust fund for the benefit of his daughter, Dr. Rita K. Braven, of Pittsburgh, until she is 45. At that time she is to receive one-half of the principal outright and the other half is to revert to the residuary estate.

All the rest of the estate is to be included in the scholarship fund, which is to be operated by Wasserman, Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of Dropsie College, and Judge Horace Stern, president judge of Common Pleas Court No. 2, of this city.
