Bar-Ilan University in Israel plans to erect a $3,000,000 high school center, it was announced today by Dr. Joseph H. Lookstein, acting president of the university. The initial phase of this program, which will cost $1,000,000, is being made possible by a major gift from Max and Phillip Stollman of Detroit.

Dr. Lookstein stressed the critical need for secondary school of education facilities in the State of Israel and Bar-Ilan University’s contribution in helping to resolve this problem. In recognition of the generosity of Max and Philip Stollman, and their respective families, the university will name the center The Stollman High School.
