Propose Hadassah Become Health Dept. of Executive

Download PDF for this date

With the coming into existence of the extended Jewish Agency for Palestine, the Hadassah organization, which is carrying on medical and health work in the country with the aid of American Zionist women, is to be transformed into the health department of the Zionist Executive, according to a proposal formulated here.

The “Ha’Aretz” reports today that a proposal to this effect will be submitted to the forthcoming Zionist Congress in Zurich. When adopted by the Congress it will need ratification by the Hadassah convention, which meets in Atlantic City in September.
