Nathan Straus Leaves Palestine on Return to United States

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Nathan Straus, American Jewish philanthropist, left Palestine on his return to the United States following the laying of the cornerstone for the Health Center he is establishing in Palestine.

Mr. Strous took leave of the huge gathering which came to see him off with the traditional Jewish dictum: “Next year in Jerusalem.”

Prior to his departure, Mr. Straus promised a substantial contribution for the B’nai Benjamin Bank of the organization of the Sons of the Palestine Pioneers. The bank was established for the promotion of agriculture.
