Download PDF for this date

B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundations has established a counselorship to provide religious, cultural and counseling services to the 630 Jewish students at Georgetown University here, a Jesuit-operated school and the sixth Catholic-affiliated university at which Hillel is active. Georgetown is providing administrative and financial support to help maintain the Hillel unit on its campus. Rabbi Samuel Kreft, recently named Hillel director at American University here, will serve as Hillel counselor at Georgetown.
