Download PDF for this date

Dr. Judah L. Magnes, president of the Hebrew University, who will be 60 years old on July 5, will be honored by the university staff by the issuance of a special volume including articles by all scholars and scientists now active at the university.

The volume will be printed entirely in Hebrew to demonstrate that the ancient language now possesses a comprehensive modern scientific and technical vocabulary.

Dr. Magnes was formerly rabbi of Temple Emanu-El in New York.
