The committee will hold 30 B’nai B’rith institutes in 1954 in the United States, Canada, Israel, South America and Switzerland where Jewish study groups will meet with distinguished scholars and educators. The program also visualizes preparation of a radio and television “Jewish Invitation to Learning” series.
