Download PDF for this date

The Mizrachi Youth of America will send 50 of its members to Israel this summer to participate in a special program of work and study, it was announced here last night at a national meeting of the organization, which was attended by some 500 college students representing 8,000 members in over 100 chapters throughout the United States.

Herman Wouk, author of the best selling “The Caine Mutiny,” was presented with the first Annual Mizrachi Youth Award “in recognition of his distinguished contributions to the furtherance of traditional Judaism and of the inspiration which his personal living has afforded American Jewish youth.”
