Once admitted, each of
the students attends the
university on a full or par-
tial scholarship. They
study the ancient lan-
guages of the Middle East
— Hebrew, Aramaic, Ug-
garistic, Arcadian and
others — and modern He-
brew, Arabic, Turkish,
etc. They are also offered
courses in ancient history
and modern archeology
and mythology, literature
and education.
An applicant for admis-
sion must, among other re-
quirements, submit three
confidential letters of rec-
ommendation. These must
come from faculty members
who have instructed the
applicant either in the same
field in which he wishes to
pursue his graduate study,
or in his major field of
study.
The small, 15-man faculty
of Dropsie constitutes an
unusual constellation of
scholars — all distinguished
specialists in their respec-
tive fields and recognized
authorities in more than one
field.
Prof. Solomon Zeitlin,
who has a world-wide repu-
tation; Dr. Solomon Gray-
zel, the noted Jewish histo-
rian; Dr. S. D. Goiten,
professor of Arabic; not to
speak of Dr. Abraham I.
Katsh who was with New
York University for 35 years
and became president of
Dropsie nine years ago.
It was under Dr.
Katsh's presidency that
Dropsie was elevated at,
the end of August, but will
continue his association
with the university in
teaching.
In addition to its out-
standing faculty, Dropsie
also invites Jewish and non-
Jewish visiting professors of
high caliber.
The cumulative record of
first-rate scholars produced
by Dropsie during the years
of its existence is very high.
Its graduates, who repre-
sent 21 countries, can be
found beaching,in many
universities and colleges in
this country as well as in
other countries, including
the University of Tokyo and
the University of Khar-
toum.

alumni are teaching now at

Gurion University, Haifa

You who have in the past been contributors to J.N.F., can justly be proud.

J.N.F. played a vital part in the establishment of the State

of Israel.

Tisha• b'Av is the time when the Jews' thoughts turn to the destruction of
the temple. Yet this is also the time to think of the reconstruction and
the upbuilding of the privilege of witnessing the beginning of the
redemption of our ancestral national home and of the Holy City of
Jerusalem.

JEWISH NATIONAL FUND

MORE GENEROUS THIS TISHA b'AV

J.N.F. land supports the whole Israel economy — it grows Israel's food
on it stands Israel's religious, educational, and welfare institutions —
and it guards her frontiers.

J.N.F. played a vital part in the building of

the State of Israel.

J.N.F., during these critical times, when Israel is searching for lasting peace,

continues its work of land reclamation, afforestation, road building, and im-
migrant absorption.

Your special Tisha B'Av contribution will help implement every phase of the
land development program of the J.N.F., which is so indispensable to the

sound economic development and to the security of the State of Israel.
