The Lucy Oppenheim Vocational School in Tel Aviv was dedicated last night in ceremonies at Jewish National House here. The school, named for the late vice-president of the United Hat, Cap and Millinery Workers Union, will offer a three-year course in needle craft for 55 Israeli young women at a time.

The school is being built with funds raised by the Millinery Workers Joint Board: Pioneer Women, the Women’s Labor Zionist Organization of America; and the Lucy Oppenheim Memorial Committee, comprised of officers and members of the Millinery Workers Union and personal friends and associates.
