Yeshiva U. Welcomes Soviet Students

Download PDF for this date

Yeshiva University is set to welcome two Soviet students who will begin their rabbinical studies at the school in September, a university spokesman said. The students, sponsored by the Appeal of Conscience Foundation, will undergo the strenuous three-year rabbinical program after they have gained proficiency in the university’s preliminary English language program. The students, Boris Gramm and Isaak Fuchs, are both university graduates. Although married, they will study in the United States without being accompanied by their wives.
