Others to address the gathering are the Senior Rabbi of the Yeshiva, Rabbi Moshe Soloveitchik, Rabbi Kahano, who is president of the Union of Orthodox Rabbis, Honorary president of the Union, Rabbi B. L. Levinthal, and Rabbi Israel Rosenberg.

The valedictorians for the Yeshiva group will be Rabbi in Drazin M. A., of Baltimore, Maryland and Rabbi Mendel Levittas of Easton, Pennsylvania. Representing the graduates of the Teachers’ Institute is Baruch Faivelson.
