New Histadrut Youth Center at Haifa Named After Philadelphians

A new youth center at Haifa, to be named after Pauline and Samuel Weinrott, of this city, will be established in Haifa under the auspices of Histadrut, the Israel labor federation, it was announced here.

The announcement culminated a dinner last night attended by some 500 civic and business leaders in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Weinrott. The center was conceived last summer during Mr. Weinrott’s first visit to Israel as a member of a delegation of Philadelphia business leaders who studied the Histadrut welfare programs. Mr. Weinrott is a banker here.
