The Hebrew University’s Board of Governors has reelected Samuel Rothberg as its chairman. The Russian-born Rothberg, who was 60 last December, will serve a second three-year term. He lives in Peoria, III. The board, closing its 33rd annual meeting, approved the decision of the executive council to award two special prizes for distinguished service in Jewish education. Those cited were Dr. Alexander Mordechai Dushkin, 80, professor emeritus of the Hebrew U., and Tal Dekel, a recent emigrant from the Soviet Union, where he was known as Anatoly Dekatov.
