Allon Appoints Committee to Resolve Dispute Between Religious Schools in Old City

Download PDF for this date

Deputy Premier Yigal Allon has appointed a committee of three architects to resolve a dispute between two Orthodox religious schools that were reopened in East Jerusalem following the June, 1967 Six-Day War. Mr. Allon heads a ministerial committee investigating the dispute. The Porath Yossef Yeshiva and the Yeshiva Hakotel each claims that the site occupied by the other obstructs its view of the Western Wall. The sites were allocated to the schools by Jerusalem authorities.
