Canadian Hadassah-WIZO has dedicated a village adopted by them, the first in a chain of such settlements which are to be established in the hills of Western Galilee in a short period of time. Speakers at the dedication ceremony were Edward E. Gelber, president of the Canadian Zionist Organization, and Mrs. D.P. Gotlieb president of the Canadian women’s organization. The latter said Canadian women have pledged $200,000 for the settlement of the area.
