American Jewish Physicians to Prepare Hebrew Medical Terminology

Download PDF for this date

A voluminous work which is to contain a full exposition of modern medicine in Hebrew, which may possibly be used as a medical text book in the Hebrew University at Jerusalem, is the task which a group of American Jewish physicians have taken upon themselves. The first book of the proposed sixty volumes appeared recently under the name of “Rphuah”, under the editorship of Drs. A.A. Golden, D.M. Herbert and A. Goldstein. The book which is the only one of its kind in modern Hebrew literature, is a scholarly and earnest attempt to create a purely Hebrew Medical Terminology.

A company which is incorporated under the name of “Rphuah” American Medical Publications In Hebrew, was formed for the purpose of issuing this voluminous work. To the Executive Committee belong: Dr. D. De Waltoff, Chairman; Dr. A. Stoloff, Treasurer; Dr. A. G cldenstein, Secretary, Dr. L. Golden and Dr. L. Herbert, Editors, Dr. N. Ratuoff, Dr. Bernstein, Dr. Keller and others; Mr. R. Brainin, Honorary Chairman. The publication has found hearty endorsement in many scholarly Hebrew circles.
