A bronze replica of the Liberty Bell, located in Independence Hall here, was turned over yesterday to Col. Chaim Herzog, military attache to the Israel Embassy in Washington, by William B. Herlands, president of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations. The replica is a gift for Col. Herzog’s father, Chief Rabbi Isaac Halevi Herzog of Israel. The Union, at a regional conference, marked the 50th anniversary of its establishment.
