Council of Jewish Women Holds Three-day Meeting on Welfare. Education

Developments affecting health, welfare and education in the United States, as well as progress made in the development of educational and social welfare services in Israel and other Jewish communities abroad, were considered here today at the opening session of the three-day meeting of the board of directors of the National Council of Jewish Women.

The Council sponsors more than 800 local health, welfare and educational projects in American communities. Through its overseas services program, the Council offers scholarships for advanced study at American universities to qualified students in fields of social welfare from Jewish communities all over the world; supports the School of Education of Hebrew University in Jerusalem, where Israel’s high school teachers are trained; and sends needed materials to children’s homes and camps in Israel and North Africa.
