Hebrew University to Establish Lecture Exchange Programs with U.S.

Download PDF for this date

The Hebrew University will seek to set up lecture exchange programs with American Universities, particularly in the field of Mideast studies to counter the growing anti-Israel propaganda by Arab students and lecturers, Eliahu Elath, president of the Hebrew University, declared here today on his return from a six-week tour of the United States, England and Canada.

Mr. Elath said there was danger that many American Mideast experts might get their information from Arab channels alone unless the Israel Government took steps to counter the propaganda campaign.

Louis Mintz, a prominent London businessman and a leading Zionist, has contributed 100,000 pounds sterling ($280,000) to the Hebrew University for the construction of new premises at the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School, it was announced here today. Mr. Mintz is in Israel together with Mrs. Mintz on a visit to their son who lives at Kibbutz Kfar Hanassi.
