The committee organized for the purpose of publishing the Yiddish and English works of Rabbi Meyer Berlin, president of the World Mizrachi Organization, announces that the first part of his works, representing his famous autobiography in Yiddish—”From Volozin to Jerusalem”—is already in print, and will appear in two volumes within next week. His other Hebrew and Jewish writings are also being prepared for publication.

The committee consists of prominent rabbis, writers and communal workers, well known in American Jewish life. The committee is headed by Rabbi Jacob Levinson of Brooklyn, and includes Abraham Cohen and S. Cohen Margolies.

On the occasion of the publication of Rabbi Berlin’s books a banquet will be given in his honor, June 6, at the Broadway Central Hotel.
