Download PDF for this date

For the first time the governors of the Hebrew University will hold their meeting in Jerusalem, it was learned today as it was announced that Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the University, had decided not to convene the meeting in Zurich, Switzerland in August, as originally contemplated, but to hold it here in October instead. The Council of the Institute of Jewish Studies and the Academic Council will meet in Zurich, as originally scheduled. Dr. Judah Leon Magnes, Chancellor of Hebrew University, will participate in the Zurich conferences.
