Download PDF for this date

Mark Uveeler, executive director of the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, reported today that the Foundation’s Board of Trustees did not adopt a resolution to seek ways of providing yeshiva students studying for rabbinic diplomas with eligibility for scholarships on the same basis as university students with doctors’ degrees. A story to the effect that such a resolution was adopted appeared in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency Daily News Bulletin on June 11 after M.R. Springer of London, a Board member and a delegate to the Foundation’s annual meeting informed the JTA of its adoption. Mr. Uveeler told the JTA today that Mr. Springer was mistaken. According to Mr. Uveeler, the resolution was introduced but died for lack of a second.
