standing in their studies, in
their seriousness of purpose and
in their strength of character."
Six rabbis, 27 lay congrega-
tional heads and five leaders of
the Yeshivah's women's group
were cited at the July 7 event
for their distinguished service
to Yeshivath Beth Yehudah

tion on Dexter Blvd., where
six classrooms were opened in

Plan to Re-Establish
Yeshiva in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — The
cornerstone was laid here Mon-
day at the entrance to Jerusa-
lem for a building to house a
yeshiva which had flourished in
Galicia for 100 years until World
War II broke out.
The spiritual head of the
transplanted Kochav Miyakov
Yeshiva is Rabbi Dovberish
Weidenfeld, the Czebin Rebbe,
whose f a t h e r founded it in
Hrumelov exactly a century ago.
The yeshiva complex will ac-
commodate 1,000 students, of
whom 200 will be dormitory
members. It will cost 1,000,000
pounds ($333,000) to complete.

country's liberal forces in the
early part of the 19th century.
He was a leader of the Jew-
ish community in Nancy and
was a founder of a number of
Jewish communal institutions
in that city.
