Israel’s first health, counseling and guidance center for the aged has been opened in Jerusalem by Malben, the agency ministering to the needs of ill, aged and handicapped immigrants. Harold Trobe, general director of Malben, told members of the United Jewish Appeal’s young leadership mission that Jerusalem was selected as the site of the new center because of the large concentration of people of advanced age there.
