Today was “Canada Day” here, so proclaimed by Mayor Gershon Agron in honor of the dedication of the Hebrew University’s new law school building, built through contributions by Canadian Friends of the University.

A special delegation of Canadians here for the dedication ceremony included Canada’s Supreme Court Justice Ivan Cleveland Rand, and Allan Bronfman, president of the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University. A feature of the new building is a replica of a court room, for student use. The room is equipped with all court room paraphernalia, including bench, a dock for the “prisoner,” and witness stands.
