The final transfer on account of a $613,000 bequest from the estate of the late Mrs. Yetty Silberberg of this city was negotiated this week as trustees of the estate handed several hundred thousand dollars worth of mortgages to Dr. Sol Stein, executive director of the National Committee for Labor Israel.

In keeping with the wishes of the deceased, the three trustees specified that the bequest be applied to the establishment of medical and vocational training institutions of Histadrut in Israel. The National Committee for Labor Israel has already dedicated the Yetty and Solomon Silberberg Medical Center in Ramat Gan, and will soon dedicate a Histadrut vocational school at Hadera in memory of Mrs. Silberberg and her late husband, Solomon.
