by Rabbi James I. Gordon, chair-

Akiva has outgrown its present
rented quarters, and the availabil-

rental by Akiva has made possible
continued growth, said Rabbi Gor-

ferred over construction of a new
building to keep expenses down.
"The availability of the fine li-

visual and language lab rooms at
the new quarters will serve to en-
