Sail to Dedicate Y.w.h.a. Building in Haifa

Download PDF for this date

A committee representing the Women’s League for Palestine sailed for Palestine yesterday, to lay the cornerstone for the Young Women’s Hebrew Association which is being erected by the League for the working girls in Haifa. This committee consists of Mrs. Charles Hyman, Mrs. Louis Klosk, Mrs. David Bloom, and Mrs. Louis Shiffman.

The building will proceed at once, and the League hopes that within four months the home will be ready for occupancy.
