Yeshiva University’s Heritage Awards for 1962 were presented tonight to Herbert H. Lehman, former New York State Governor and U.S. Senator, Joseph Meyerhoff of Baltimore, General Chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, and Meyer W. Gasner of Toronto, prominent Canadian Jewish leader.

The presentations were made by Dr. Samuel Belkin, University president, at the university’s 33rd annual dinner, in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. The awards honor “out-standing individuals who have exemplified and perpetuated the noble ideals of justice, learning and philanthropy inherent in the Jewish Heritage.”
