Cleveland Yeshiva Will Establish New Educational Center in Israel

A new center for Torah studies and teacher education will be established in Israel by the Telshe Yeshiva of Cleveland as the core of a new religious community that will provide synagogues, elementary schools, shopping centers and homes for 250 families and an anticipated initial student body of 400.

The center, which has the Israel Government’s endorsement, will be built on a 40-acre site, nine miles from Jerusalem, on the main Tel Aviv highway, according to Rabbi Aaron Paperman, executive vice president of the Telshe Yeshiva. It will be named Kiryat Telshe-Stone in honor of Irving I. Stone, American industrialist who donated the land.
