Download PDF for this date

The annual meeting of the National Hillel Commission opened here today at the Hillel Building at Northwestern University. The two-day meeting of the Commission will consider an expanded program in 1954 to serve Jewish youth on the 208 campuses in this country, Canada and Israel where the Hillel has foundations or counselorships.

At ceremonies held here this afternoon, the Commission honored Dr. Abran L. Sacher, its chairman and president of Brandeis University, and Dr. Louis L. Mann and Dr. Philip L. Seman for 30 years of continuous service to the Commission and the B’nai B’rith Hillel program. The ceremonies also marked the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Hillel Foundation movement.
