A “Brazilian House” will be erected on the campus of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot at a cost of $500,000. The house, destined for use by professors and students, will bear the name of the late Ambassador Osvaldo Aranha, the Brazilian statesman who was president of the United Nations General Assembly in 1947 when the historic partition plan establishing Israel was adopted. The first contributions by Rio de Janeiro’s Jewish and non-Jewish businessmen and industrialists were announced at a dinner last week. The event was hosted by Rio’s weekly, Manchete, in honor of Prof. Albert Sabin, outgoing president of the Weizmann Institute, who came here for a visit.
