Ort Women’s Conference Adopts Plans to Finance Medical Clinics

Download PDF for this date

Plans to support the establishment in Paris by the ORT of a teacher-training school for girls and to finance medical clinics in ORT schools in 19 countries were adopted last night at the concluding session of a two-day conference of the Women’s American ORT. Representatives of 200 chapters of the organization in 32 states attended the meeting.

The first clinics, to be established soon, will be in Israel, Germany, Morocco and Tunisia. The Paris school will open a year from now and will be patterned after the ORT school of advanced technology for men in Switzerland which provides instructors for about 300 ORT educational projects throughout the world.
