A 24-page guide on condi-
tions and problems for ob-
servant Jews at 28 medical,
dental and law schools in
the United States has been
prepared by two students at
Yeshiva University, enti-
tled, "Everything You Al-
ways Wanted to Know
About Religious Life in
Medical, Dental and Law
Schools — But Didn't Know
Whom to Ask."
The conclusion of the
guide is that most campus
problems affecting obser-
vant Jewish students can be
overcome but that there are
aspects of social life "in the
hinterlands" the observant
prospective student needs to
know beforehand.
The guide was prepared
by Steven Mandelbaum of
Brooklyn, a 20-year-old pre-
med and ,dental junior, and
Jeffrey Strashun of Eliza-
beth, N.J., a 21-year-old pre-
law senior. Both are stu-
dents at Yeshiva College.
The guide was published by
Hamevaser and the Com-
mentator, Yeshiva student
newspapers, and the Yesh-
iva College Student Council.

They said they started

the guide in March 1974
by sending questionnaires
to 90 alumni of Yeshiva

University attending the

undergraduates. Some 60
percent of the question-
naires were filled out and
returned.

The alumni were asked

Best Wishes for a Happy and Healthy Passover 1
Mr. and Mrs. Asa Shapiro and Family

An alumnus commenting
on the Mexican school, said
"sacrifice is the key word
for anyone 'planning to at-
tend." He added that school
officials there expect that
"if you want to be a doctor,
you have to take exams on
Shabat." He said there were
"sympathetic individual
professors" but that they
were hard to find.

Students reported that at
Johns Hopkins medical
school "one can avoid going
to school on Shabat if one so
desires. There are abso-
lutely no ill feelings about
wearing a yarmulke in class
and attitudes general are
very understanding."

Boston "is probably one of
the best places to live be-
sides New York City," wrote
a student at the Tufts medi-
cal school, adding that
"right near Tufts is the old
Vilna Shul, so you won't
have any trouble grabbing
that quickie minyan for
Minha."

Alumni found Yale medi-
cal school had an "en-
lightened attitude" toward
missing classes and has a
kosher kitchen, "a coopera-
tive strictly kosher eating
facility on campus." That
kosher facility, like the one
at Johns Hopkins, is a
Young Israel project.
At Case Western Reserve
in Cleveland, the school was
found to be "most accommo-
dating with respect to res-
cheduling exams that fall' on
Shabat or Yom Toy" and
within "10 minutes' drive,
there is a substantial and
active Jewish community."
Alumni reported that
Georgetown University law
center "has been very coop-
erative in the matter of ex-
ams scheduled on the Sab-
bath," and has rescheduled
many for "religious observ-
ance." Wearing a yarmulke
to class presents no problem
at Harvard law school.
Wearing a yarmulke at For-
dham University in the
Bronx, a student reported,
"makes the Orthodox stu-
dent the focal point of after-
class discussions, but pre-
sents no religious prob-
lems."

At Northwestern Univer-
sity dental school in Chi-
cago, conditions were gener-
ally satisfactory except that
participation in "religious
social life" required a
20-minute hike to West Rog-
ers Park, "a very nice `frum'
neighborhood."

St. Louis University
gives all written examina-
tions on Saturdays but re-
examinations are sched-
uled on Fridays, Sundays
or Mondays. However,
there are "no kosher res-
taurants" in St. Louis. At
Temple University dental
school "probably the big-
gest problem is that if
you're not married, the
social situation is terri-
ble," a student reported.
