Download PDF for this date

Work on the erection of the Hospital in Tiberias in memory of the late Peter J. Schweitzer, will commene shortly according to word received by Mrs. Rebecca Schweitzer from the London headquarters of the Keren Hayesod.

The sum of $25,000 handed oer to the Keren Hayesod by the late Mr. Schweitzer will not be released for building purposes, the beginning of November. Since Mrs. Schweitzer has decided to finance the additional cost of the building, it is expected that the new hospital will be a valuable factor towards the sanitary improvement of medical conditions in Palestine. Mrs. Schweitzer plans to revisit Palestine in connection with the dedication of the hospital in the memory of her husband.
