Bar-ilan University Presents Valuable Bible to Governor Rockefeller

A hand-wrought, silver-encrusted Bible was presented today to Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller, at his office here, by Bar-Ilan University of Ramat-Gan, in appreciation for a rare lithograph of Abraham Lincoln given to the university by the Governor last February.

Rabbi Joseph A. Lookstein, acting president of Bar-Ilan, expressed appreciation of the Administration and student body to Mr. Rockefeller for the gift, and told him that the portrait and the flag of the State of New York would be permanent exhibition on the campus. A science building on the Bar-Ilan campus bears the name of Abraham Lincoln.
