It was a tremendous task they had undertaken - their ranks were thin, and their resources much thinner. After great personal sacrifices and years of effort they built what is now an EAST SIDE INSTITUTION - our ‘OHEL TORAH’ - an institution well known to New York Jewry not alone for its teaching of the Torah, but for its inculcating into American Jewish youth a love, understanding, and above all observance of the Torah. ” Yeshivot, Matzo companies, Sausage Facitories, banks, and other businesses would distribute hagadoth specially printed for them with their own outer wrappers; this copy has the wrappers for Yeshivas Ohel Torah. SUBJECT(S) : Haggadot, Seder, Liturgy. None with the Yeshivas Ohel Torah wrappers listed on OCLC Ex-library markings. Very minimal staining and rubbing. Very good condition. (HAG-19-32).
