TEL AVIV — Within a
matter of three weeks
Merkas Yeshivot Bnei
Akiva b'Israel received,
distributed and dedicated
six Torah scrolls.
One scroll was donated
as a gift by Mr. and Mrs.
Isadore Zweibel to Hes-
der Yeshivat Yamit. In-
stead of dedicating this
new Torah to a syna-
gogue, the Zweibels de-
cided to dedicate the
Torah to the young
yeshiva in Kfar Darom.
Two Torah__scrolls were
donated by Benjamin
Kamlet in behalf of his
former synagogue, Bet
Midrash D'sfaradim
Hagadol. Kamlet was the
secretary of the syna-
gogue. It took two years
to bring the Torah scrolls
to Israel. One was dedi-
cated to _the Mechina
Hamercazit at Givat
Shmuel located next to
Bar-Ilan. (A mechina is
equivalent to the Ameri-
can junior high school.)
The other Sefer Torah
was dedicated to the Bnei
Akiva ,Hesder Yeshiva,
Yeshivat Hagolan.
In addition, Yeshivot
Bnei Akiva received three

euphoria, by denouncing
the Appeal in the presence
of the late Premier Levi
Eshkol, as "a rich men's
club."
At the time, Glass was
an active worker for both
the Appeal and the JNF.
He has dropped his busi-
ness interests and is now
the full-time head of the
JNF.
While conceding that
the _ JIA has - demo-
cratizied itself_ since his
1968 outburst, Glass —
who was 40 last month
believed the JNF can
nonetheless be the fund
of Anglo-Jewry's ordi-
nary . men and women. It
also appeals to younger
people than the JIA. Its
new chairman, Anthony
Coore, is only 36.
Of the 1 million Pounds
the JNF raised last year
— compared with about
13 million Pounds by
the JIA — more than
70,000 Pounds Sterling
came from 36,000 blue col-
lection boxes in homes,
schools, factories, shops
and restaurants
throughout the country.
But the JNF is not only a

money-raising apparatus education work which

peal (JIA) which raises
far more money for Is-
rael. But changes are
astir in the Anglo-Jewish
fund-raising world and
the JNF is preparing to
assert itself more than in
the past.
Together with the
Zionist Federation and
the Jewish Agency, both
funds have operated from
the same building in cen-
tral London. With the
lease at Rex House due to
end in about a year,
the occupants are looking
for new premises. The
JNF is impatient to get
out of Rex House this
year and to find premises
separate from the other
Zionist bodies.
"It will be more than
just a physical break,"
says David Glass, the
JNF's young new direc-
tory, who is eager to put
the JNF back on the map
as "the people's fund."
It is an ambition which is
dear to his heart. In
January, 1968, he sent a
shock wave through JIA,
then at the height of its

more Sifrei Torah from the
Jewish community of
Canada. Heading this ef-
fort. - was Rabbi Sender
Shizgal, national. execu-
tive director- of the Miz-
raChi in Canada. The recip-
ients of these Torahs were:
Yeshivat Bnei Akiva Neve.
Herzog in Ashdod, Ulpana
Kiryat Motzkin and Hes-
der Yeshivat Maalot. The
last dedication brought
singing and dancing
through the streets of
Maalot.
The rosh yeshiva o
Yeshivat Maalot said
that_the dedication of the
Sefer Torah was espe-
cially a happy one since
the Yeshivat 1Viaalot was
very much in heed of a
Torah. Maalot was the
scene of an Arab terrorist
attack which left 20 chil-
dren dead.

Australian Jews
Study at Yeshiva U.

NEW YORK — The ful-
fillment of a nee'd to
further their Jewish heri-
tage is seen as just
another step in a 20,000
mile journey for two Au-
stralian physicians
studying at Yeshiva Uni-
versity's James Striar
School of General Jewish
Studies.
The two, Dr. Alan Gar-
field and Dr. Peter Kraus,
both from Melbourne,
came to the university as
a result of a speaking tour
held in Australia three
years ago by Dr. Norman
Lamm, who has since
been elected president of
the university, and the
university's "Counter-
point" program, which
has been sending Yeshiva
University faculty, stu-
dents, alumni and admin-
istrators to Jewish com-
munities in Australia and
other foreign lands to
strengthen Jewish edu-
cational and cultural life.
