“care” Provides Machinery for New Agricultural School in Israel

Download PDF for this date

A religiously-oriented vocational and agricultural school was opened today at Hartuv, in the Jerusalem corridor, with a ceremony addressed by United States Ambassador Edward B. Lawson and Minister of Religion and Social Welfare Moshe Shapira.

The equipment in the school was provided by CARE, the American relief organization, which for the first time distributed machinery and tools rather than foodstuffs. Ambassador Lawson told the school’s students that the occasion marked the close ties between Israel and the U.S. Mr. Shapira noted that the American gifts would serve the families of 25 neighboring villages.
