Download PDF for this date

A rabbinical school will be opened here next October to fill the spiritual and cultural needs of the Jewish communities in North Africa.

The Federation of Algerian Jewish Communities, at a meeting here today, decided to establish such a school, and appropriated 45,000,000 franes for the purpose. The school will also serve as a high school, where instruction will be given in both Hebrew and French.
