Israeli Students Study in Rumania

Some 350 Israeli students study medicine in Rumania, Rabbi Mordechai Kirschblum told the Zionist Executive following a visit to Rumania. Kirschblum was impressed by the state of the Jewish community in Rumania. He said its 50,000 members are active in 68 communities well organized under the leadership of the Chief Rabbi, Moses Rosen. Kirschblum said there were some 130 synagogues in Rumania with 86 of them holding daily prayers. In each community there are youth activities. He noted, however, the lack of shochatim and rabbis who can serve as teachers.
