Download PDF for this date

The American Women’s Mizrachi Organization this week transmitted $5,000 to Palestine as a contribution toward the erection of a Technical School for Jewish Girls there. The school will offer courses in domestic science, commercial subjects, hygiene and Hebrew. Graduates of the school will be prepared to assume positions as social workers, supervisors of workers’ kitchens, hospitals and sanatoria, and teachers of trades. An employment bureau and a social center will also be established in connection with the school, which will be part of the Mizrachi educational system in Palestine.

Mrs. B. Gottesfeld, national secretary of the American Women’s Mizrachi Organization, left yesterday for Europe and Palestine. While in Europe she will confer with leaders of the Mizrachi women’s organizations regarding the Technical School in Palestine.
