Mrs. Schaver's $60,000 Gift
Establishes Israel Youth Home
Architect's sketch of the Children's Home and Mothers' Cultural
Center at Rishon L'Zion, Israel, which Mrs. Morris L. Schaver is help-
ing to finance by her contribution of $60,000.
In honor of the 60th birthday of in furthering the growth and devel-
Emma Lazaroff Schaver, the De-
troit Council of Pioneer Women
announces a $60,000 building proj-
ect in the Ezra Oobitzaron Section
of Rishon L'Zion, Israel. The neigh-
borhood is inhabited by a great
many Oriental families, with a fair
percentage from South America.
This building, consisting of a
Children's Home- and Mother's Cul-
tural Center, will accommodate
pre-school children from culturally
deprived homes and from homes
where the mother works or where
there is illness, neglect, or misery.
Since social workers constantly
advise that even a bad home is
preferable to the - best institution,
the Israel Ministry of Welfare in
conjunction with Moetzet Hapoalot,
sister organization to Pioneer Wom-
en, has arranged for this pilot
project in social service where
children will be cared for from
6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. but will be
with their families at night and
Shabbat. They will be trained in
language and customs, so they may
be integrated into the Israeli cul-
ture before they enter school.
The Center will be called Bet-
Nechama, the Hebrew name of
Mrs. Schaver. Mrs. Schaver has
been active in Pioneer Women and
the Labor Zionist Movement all
her adult life. With her late hus-
band, Morris L. Schaver, national-
ly known philanthropist and Labor
Zionist Pioneer, she has been a
leader in every worthwhile cause
and has devoted herself especially
