PHILADELPHIA --
Dropsie University has re-
ceived a $24,600 grant from
the National Endowment
for the Humanities for the
preservation of its collection
of ancient Geniza docu-
ments.
A Geniza is a place used
for storing written mate-
rials which have become
,unusable. In ancient times-
it was a room attached to a
synagogue where writings
containing the name of God,
which, according to Jewish

law, cannot be destroyed,
were stored when they wore
out.
The documents will be
removed from between the
heavy, glass plates in which
they are presently stored,
de-acidified and
'encapsulated in air-tight,
polyester film pages.

Every man shall give as
he is able, according to the
blessing of the Lord thy God-
which He has given thee.
—Deuteronomy 16:17
