A $5,000,000 campaign for the Yeshiva University was opened here last night at a dinner at the Hotel Biltmore addressed by City Comptroller Lazarus Joseph and by Rabbi Joseph H. Lookstein. The fund will be used for academic and physical expansion.
“Yeshiva University is a practical protest of American Israel against the un-American anti-liberal and unpardonable quota system in American colleges,” Rabbi Lookstein said. “It is unthinkable that, having defeated the forces of discrimination on the continent of Europe, that we should tolerate these very forces taking root here.”
