Arabs of Tiberias Grateful to Hadassah

Download PDF for this date

The Arabs’ gratitude for the “attention of the representatives of Hadassah in Tiberias during the past year”, is expressed in a letter received by Colonel Kisch of the Palestine Zionist Executive from the Palestine (National Arabic) Club in Tiberias which he has forwarded to the Hadassah Medical Organization.

“At the close of the school sessions for the summer, a detailed report concerning the pupils was submitted to us by their teacher, Jeana Effendi”, the Arabs’ letter states. “The report says that Dr. David, the director of the Hadassah medical work in Tiberias, has given most considerable care to the pupils throughout the year.

“Now, as Dr. Salkind and Dr. Magnes are in your city, we would request you to transmit our gratefl sentiments to them, and to convey, in the name of the Arab inhabitants, to the Hadassah management in America, their appreciation of the beautiful activity of Hadassah in our country.”
