October 20, 1953
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A decision to authorize immediate construction of five buildings at the American Mizrachi-sponsored Bar-Ilan University in Israel, in addition to the first five which are scheduled to be ready for use next year, was adopted here this week-end at a special conference of Mid-west Jewish leaders called by the Mizrachi Organization of Detroit.

The conference also authorized Dr. Pinkhos Churgin, president of Bar-Ilan, to coordinate the activities of American academicians for Bar-Ilan with the newly-formed British Advisory Committee for Bar-Ilan University and, if possible, to organize them into a single academic advisory committee. The decisions were made after the conferees heard a number of reports, including one by Dr. Churgin.
