Daniel Temchin and Herman
K. Cohen. Abraham Selesny
was a 17-year-old student in
the first class of Bar-Ilan, an
entering class of 80 students
in 1955.
Today, many of the sup-
porters of Bar-Ilan are second
generation — sons and
daughters, nieces and
nephews and their spouses.
From its inception, Bar-Ilan
was financed by friends in the
United States, Great Britain,
Canada and elsewhere. The
Detroit office was founded
under the leadership of Zvi
Tomkiewicz, a Talmudic
scholar who worked for Bar-
Ilan from the mid 1950s un-
til he was well into his 80s in
1979.

States, led by Professor Pin-
chas Churgin of Yeshiva
University, began drawing up
the plans for Bar-Ilan. Pro-
fessor Churgin, a friend of
Philip Stollman's, spoke at
that first parlor meeting in
Detroit, and he and Stollman
selected the site in Ramat
Gan upon which the univer-
sity was built — an abandon-
ed orange grove that had been
a battlefield in the War of In-
dependence. The board of the
Jewish National Fund agreed
to provide the 62 acres and in
July 1953, the cornerstone
was laid.
Other early Detroit sup-
porters of Bar-Ilan were Edith

ing Schlussel, as well as

el Aviv — The acade-
mic year has opened in
Israel without serious
problems, but administrators
at Israel's seven institutes of
higher learning are
pessimistic about how the
year will end.
Despite the vast differences
in the size of their student
bodies and the range of sub-
jects they teach, all of the
universities suffer from a
common problem — a lack of
funds that may worsen. The
budget of the Ministry of
Education and Culture has
not been spared in the govern-
ment austerity program.
The administrations have
been inventive in trying to
find alternate ways of squeez-
ing funds from the students.
Tel Aviv University's latest
method has been to start
charging car-owning students
fees for the use of parking lots
inside the campus area and in
nearby parking lots. But
overall, the ministry and the
universities have not succeed-
ed in passing the budget
reductions to the students by
raising the fees, as the
students claim that they can-
not bear the extra burden.
"Claim" may be putting it
lightly, as more than 80,000
went on strike last April to
protest tuition hikes that
subsequently were revoked.
But as early as 1983, the
universities threatened to
close if the government did
not help them meet their
growing deficits.
The economic plight of the
universities is exemplified by
the problem facing the new
board chairman of the Weiz-
mann Institute, Murray Kof-

fler of Toronto. He noted that
his first task in his unpaid job
(Koffler is the founder of the
Superpharm chain in Israel
and the Shoppers Drug Mart
chain in North America) will
be to cut the institute's $18
million deficit and effect cut-
backs in its $70 million an-
nual operating budget.
Until very recently the
universities hoped that they
could offset the reduction in
government allocations by in-
creasing donations from the
various "societies of friends"
abroad to continue develop-
ment and construction pro-
grams, with possibly
something left over for
scholarship, special projects
and general funds.
But a feeling of near-panic
is reported to have spread
over university managements
following the stock exchange
crashes throughout the world
and threats of a decline in the
American economy. The bulk
of university grants and dona-
tions come from the United
States, and university
treasurers are looking ahead
with concern to a bleaker
future.
The universities have been
founded throughout the coun-
try. The Technion-Israel In-
stitute of Technology, in
Haifa, is the oldest, opening
in 1924. The others are: the
Hebrew University of
Jerusalem (1925); the Weiz-
mann Institute of Science,
Rehovot (1934); Bar-Ilan
University, Ramat Gan
(1955); Tel Aviv University
(1956); Haifa University
(1963); and Ben-Gurion
University of the Negev, Beer-
sheba (1969).
All of the, apart from the
Weizmann Institute, which
