Britain Admits Ten Iranian Jews to Study for Rabbinate

Download PDF for this date

The British Home Office has granted visas to ten young Iranian Jews who will attend the Sunderland Yeshiva to study for the rabbinate.

The Agudas Israel, which arranged for the entry of the students, said today that upon completion of their courses, the young men would return to Iran to serve as rabbis or would proceed to Israel to tend to the religious requirements of Iranian Jews settled there.
