Download PDF for this date

A four-day festival was held to mark the formal opening of the new campus of the 82-year-old Telshe Yeshiva, one of the leading Orthodox seminaries of the midwest. The new campus consists of 21 ultra-modern buildings on 57 acres of suburban Cleveland.

The festival ended with a banquet addressed by Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, vice-president of the Israel bond organization, who received an honorary degree. Messages were received from President Eisenhower and Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog of Israel.
