A dietetic survey in Palestine as a preliminary step toward improving food conditions there has been undertaken by Miss Etta Sadow, Boston dietician, according to an announcement from the national headquarters of Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America. After the survey Miss Sadow will be responsible for the dietaries in the Hadassah Medical Organization hospitals throughout Palestine.

Miss Sadow will also take charge of the teaching of dietetics in the Hadassah Nurses’ Training School in Jerusalem and at the same time will supervise the work of the Palestine School Luncheons’ Committee, which provides hot lunches to children in five schools, and the Straus soup kitchens, which are supported by Nathan Straus.

The 1927 campaign of the Cleveland Bureau of Jewish Education to raise $100,000 for carrying on the work of the bureau will be from April 25 to May 4, according to an announcement by Rabbi Abba H. Silver, president of the Bureau.
