A personal gift of three antique glass vessels from Chief Rabbi Isaac Halevi Herzog for the Truman Library dedication in Independence, Missouri on July 6 was en route today to the United States. The vessels, which were unearthed in Western Galilee, date back to the Third Century C. E. They bear the symbols of the 12 tribes.
