ARIA, LEWIS:

Merchant and philanthropist; died at Portsea in 1874. Of a Sephardic family, he was trained to business and devoted the fortune he made during a long career to the foundation of a theological college for the training of Jewish youth for the ministry. This was established at Portsea and has turned out several Jewish ministers. By a curious provision of the will, preference is to be given to candidates for admission that have resided in Hampshire, the county in which Portsea is situated. The incumbent of the post of principal of Aria College is Rev. I. S. Meisels.
