Yeshiva’s 50-Year Anniversary To Be Marked By Jubilee Dinner (Vol. 2, Issue 6)

The Golden Anniversary of the founding of Yeshiva will be celebrated at a Jubilee Dinner next Sunday evening at the Hotel Astor. The dinner is being arranged by the Yeshiva Colege Sponsors and Supporters Committee, with Maurice Levin as chairman of the evening.

Included among the honorary guests who will participate in the celebration are Justice Benjamin N. Cardoza of the United States Supreme Court, Professor Albert Einstein, and Governor Herbert H. Lehman, all honorary alumni of the college. Max D. Steuer is also expected to attend.

A feature of the evening will be a fifty-page souvenir journal which will appear at the dinner. Jacob Saltzman, executive secretary of the affair, is in charge of publication.

The entertainment of the evening will be dedicated to the honor of the late Samuel (Roxy) Rothafel, who arranged the program at the dinner tendered to Maurice Levin last year. The Roxy Concert Orchestra will be featured in addition to the Choral Ensemble.

Jan Peerce, Viola Philo, Robert Weede, Harry Braun, and Maurice Schwartz are included in the list of stars scheduled for the evening. Harry Lubin, former musical director for Roxy, is also expected to appear.

The Jubilee Dinner is a highlight in an extensive program of celebration in honor of the founding of the Yeshiva fifty years ago, and of the fiftieth birthday of Dr. Bernard Revel, president of the institution.
