Hebrew U. Receives
Statues of Moses,

"Lapidus always brings his own. "

Copr. 1964, Doyenu Productions

JERUSALEM.—As a gesture to-
ward interreligious understanding,
the Hebrew University has placed
in one of its buildings life-sized
wood statues of Moses, Jesus and
Mohammed, carved by a noted
Jewish sculptor.
The works of the late Siegfried
Wagner were offered to the uni-
versity as a gift by his daughter,
saying it was her father's wish that
the statues be given to the uni-
versity in a city sacred to Judaism,
Christianity and Mohamedanism.
