Download PDF for this date

Commencement exercises of the Yeshiva College, the first to be held in the new buildings of the Yeshiva on Amsterdam Avenue and 186th Street, New York, will take place on March 31st, Dr. B. Revel, President of the Faculty, announced.

The Yeshiva does not hold annual graduation of rabbis; the last commencement exercises were held three years ago. This year 27 students, from various parts of this country, and Canada will receive their S’micha (rabbinical diplomas). Most of them also hold degrees from a similar college. Twelve of them have already been called to positions as rabbis.

At the same time, 28 graduates of the Teachers Institute, the training school for Hebrew teachers, will receive their teaching diplomas. Of the 83 graduates of this department of the Yeshiva, 75 are now teaching; 3 are principals of schools and one has recently been appointed instructor in the Semitic Department of Columbia University, New York.

Rabbi M. S. Margolies, Rabbi Simon Shkop, and Dr. B. Revel, will be the speakers at the exercises.
