Hadassah Plans Expanded Vocational Education in Israel

Download PDF for this date

A rural vocational education program, to correct Israel’s present “occupational maldistribution,” will be undertaken in Israel before the end of 1952, it was reported here tonight to 2,000 delegates attending the 38th annual national convention of Hadassah.

A joint report submitted to the convention by Mrs. Abraham Tulin, chairman of Hadassah’s Youth Aliyah department, and Dr. Miriam Freund, chairman of the organization’s vocational occupation department, declared that the new program was designed to offset the fact “that the percentage of population engaged in public and other services, including the liberal professions, the trades, and the finances was higher in Israel than in any other country in the world.”
