Mothers and Children on Vacation

Three thousand five hundred mothers of large and underprivileged families and 5000 of their children will this summer enjoy free holidays organized by the Welfare Ministry, the Education Ministry and women’s voluntary organizations.

Forty-eight holiday sites have been set up around the country-from Yeruham in the Negev to Kiryat Shimona on the Lebanese border. This will be the third year that the holiday scheme is operating. Participants are chosen by local committees comprising a district nurse, a social worker, a community worker and a representative of WIZO or another women’s organization.

During the vacation the women hear lectures on home economics, child care, cosmetics and first aid. Professional kindergarten teachers mind the children during the lecture periods.

Greville Janner, MP. and Harry Landy, former treasurer, were elected yesterday as the two new vice-presidents of the Board of Deputies of British Jews. The new treasurer is Eric Nabarro.
