Israel Reaffirms Rights to Hadassah’s Mt Scopus Institutions

Establishment of a Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center at Ein Karem, in the Jerusalem area, “in no way means that Israel has renounced its rights to the institution on Mount Scopus,” Minister of Labor Mordechai Namir declared, at the ceremonies opening a new road, named for the late Henrietta Szold, linking Ein Karem and Jerusalem. The road will cut the travel time between the two points from about a half hour to ten minutes. Dr. Miriam Freund, president of Hadassah, cut a ribbon opening the road.

The old Hadassah-Hebrew University medical center is in the Israeli enclave and is not accessible except by convoy through the Jordan lines.
