Download PDF for this date

The sum of $350,000 is bequeathed to local and Palestinian philanthropies in the will of the late C. Salomon, a Rhodesian merchant who died recently in Bulawayo. Mr. Salomon willed $125,000 to the Palestine Benevolent Institution which provides temporary shelter for poor Jewish settlers.

Of this sum $35,000 is to be used for the ground and buildings and the income from the remainder for the general purposes of the institution. A board of management of five to supervise the bequest is to be appointed by the Keren Hayesod in Palestine. Mr. Salomon also left $125,000 for university scholarships for Rhodesians.
