Rabbi Maurice B. Pekarsky of the B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundation at Cornell University was guest of honor at a luncheon yesterday at the Fifth Avenue Restaurant to mark the close of the fifth annual session of the summer school of Avukah, the American Student Zionist Federation.

The school, founded and directed by Rabbi Pekarsky, holds its sessions at summer camp and concerns itself largely with the problems of Zionism and the Jewish college student. This year’s school was attended by representatives from eighteen universities.

Among those present at the luncheon were Abraham H. Cohen, Dr. Paul P. Gourrich, Rabbi Milton Steinberg, Rabbi Jacob Weinstein and James Waterman Wise, editor of Opinion.
