Rabbi Isaac Stollman

In behalf of the large combined membership of
the major traditional groups in our community, we wish
you and Mrs. Stollman a safe journey to Medinat Israel.

You are leaving our community with our blessings ;
and with our deep appreciation for all the services you
have rendered our people—both here, in all efforts to
advance Jewish learning and piety, and in behalf of
Israel's redemption.

Your name has been linked with the Jewish national{
cause during your entire lifetime, and now you are
leaving us to take up residence in the homeland you
helped redeem. May you be blessed with good health,
with a life of joy and a continuing share in israer$
creative activities.

Experiment in Learning—Bar-Ilan University

By a Special Correspondent

The lab looks much the same
as a lab in any part of the world—
to the uninitiated—the same mass
of pipes, dials, instruments, the
same peculiar conglomeration of
smells, the same hieroglyphics on
the blackboard—but the difference
lies in the students. For these
young men and women, and their
instructors, are all Orthodox Jews,
the men in skull caps, the girls a
little more modestly clothed than
most other students — and the
university is Bar-Ilan in the gar-
den city of Ramat Gan, Israel.
This university is the youngest
of Israel's fully fledged academic
institutions — it celebrates its
tenth anniversary in 1965. Since

its foundation it - has grown from
the original handful of students—
less than 100 — to a student en-
rollment of 2,000 for the current
academic year. Yet there are few_
plans for Bar-Ilan to expand much
more in numbers — 4,000 is the
figure envisaged as the optimum
desirable number of undergrad-
uates — both in the interests of
high teaching standards and by
virtue of the special class of re-
ligious student that Bar-Ilan at-
The academic body presently
numbers 168 professors, lecturers
and assistants — many drawn
from leading universities in Eng-
land, America and Canada. In-
struction — 528 courses in the


current year — is offered in Jew-
ish Studies, Languages and Litera-
ture (with classical Greek and
Latin appearing side by side with
English, French, Hebrew, Arabic
and German), Mathematics and
Natural Sciences and the Social
It is in this latter field that Bar-
Ilan is making a unique contribu-
tion to Israel's day to day life.
Approximately half of Bar-Ilan's
graduates are destined for the
teaching profession.
Though a young university, Bar-
Ilan has already won State recog-
nition from the government of
Israel and the scope of Its post-
gradUate schools is constantly ex-
