A religious school and cultural center will be erected in Israel by the Mizrachi Women’s Organization of America as a living memorial to the late Rabbi Meir Bar-Ilan, leader of the World Mizrachi movement, it was announced here this weekend by Mrs. Lionel Golub, acting national president.

The Bar-Ilan memorial will be established at the Bessie Gotsfeld Children’s Village and Farm School at Reanana, Mrs. Golub said. The Junior Mizrachi Women will also sponsor the $100,000 institution which is expected to become a major training center for religious youth in Israel.
