Start Fifth High School in Israel Financed by Rogosin Gift

Ground was broken yesterday at Rosh Haayin near Petach Tikvah for the fifth of nine planned high schools for which Israel Rogosin the New Jersey industrialist and philanthropist, has contributed $4 million to the Israel Education Fund of the United Jewish Appeal.

Some $2 million of Mr. Rogosin’s gift has been used for construction in the four high schools made possible by his gift. The fifth school, designed for Yemenite immigrants, will be religiously-oriented. Education Minister Zalman Aranne and Ministry officials attended the ceremony.
