Ose Resumes Work in Israel; Will Be Financed from South Africa

OSE, the Jewish medical society, is resuming operations in Israel and is opening a special home for children convalescing from rheumatic fever, of which there are 2, 000 infant sufferers in Israel, and nurseries in the work camps and new immigrant settlements.

Dr. N. Wolf, director of OSE in Israel, and Moshe Erem, member of the Knesset and president of the Israel OSE, said that although agreement had not been reached with the American Joint Distribution Committee, funds will be received from OSE in South Africa and from the Latin American branches which direct all their income to Israel. Dr. Cyrus Weiler, president of the South African OSE, expressed hope for increased OSE activities among new immigrants.
