First Israel Education Fund-uja High School is Dedicated in Israel

Dedication ceremonies were hold here today for the Rodman School in nearby Kiryat Yam, the first high school opened in Israel under the building program of the Israel Education Fund of the United Jewish Appeal, which has undertaken to finance the construction of 10 to 15 such high schools during the next few years.

The first stage of construction of the Rodman School, which will serve Kiryat Yam’s largely immigrant population, was completed two weeks ago, in time for the opening of the current school term. The school was made possible by a gift from Gertrude and Morris Rodman, of Washington, who were present at the ceremonies. The remaining stages of construction of the school, which will eventually accommodate 1, 000 pupils, will be completed early next year.
