145 Yeshivot in Israel in 1972

NEW YORK—Continuing its tra-
ditional support of religious in-
stitutions in Israel, the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee has budgeted
close to $1,000,000 to provide finan-
cial aid to 145 yeshivot and special
research and scholarship programs
in 1972.

vot, which receive monthly sub-
sidies amounting to between 10

and 15 per cent of their operat-
ing budgets, have a total enroll-
ment of close to 20,000 students.
Another 30 yeshivot receive spe-
cial holiday grants twice a year.
In 1971, Haber reported, 65 of
the religious institutions received
special appropriations for the im-
provement of kitchen and dormi-
tory facilities. JDC funds also pro-
vide for feeding programs, health,
care and personal loans to the
