Download PDF for this date

The first graduation exercises of the Girls’ Farm Training School took place at Ness Ziona, where the school is located. Eighteen vigorous and sturdy young Jewish women, who had been working and studying on the farm for two years and had been trained in all branches of practical agriculture, were the recipients of certificates of competency. All of them have been given jobs in the cooperative farm colonies and settlements.
