The Joseph and Rebecca Meyerhoff public library has been dedicated in Jerusalem’s Gonen section which is inhabited mainly by settlers from Oriental countries. The library will serve students at the Denmark High School, now under construction, and residents of the area. Mr. Meyerhoff, a Baltimore Jewish leader, is chairman of the Israel Education Fund of the United Jewish Appeal of which both the library and the Denmark school are projects.
