Statement on the Hebrew University [Berlin, 18 February 1920][1] The thought that the dream of a Jewish university is now close to materialization elates me. Considering the general interest among Jews in academic things and the great hurdles impeding the Eastern European Jews from studying, establishing the Jewish university would be a necessity even if the development of Palestine had no need for an intellectual center. However, we also need the university to train Pales- tine’s academic youth so that the country can be motivated to a develop its own cultural life. Interest in the new university among Jews living abroad will assure that a lively exchange be maintained between the new university and the civilized nations of Europe and America so we do not need to fear crippling isolation. May the university become a new shrine for our nation! Vol. 7, 39a.
