A five-story international cultural center will be built in Jerusalem this Spring or Summer at a cost of $250,000 by “Children to Palestine,” a Christian-Jewish group working on child rehabilitation, Spyros P. Skouras, president of 20th-Century-Fox Film Corporation, announced last night.

The building will contain study rooms, exhibition walls, a library and an auditorium and will exhibit arts and crafts representative of the free world and will create a training program for teachers. It will be open to the youth of all faiths and will promote interfaith activities.
