Gift by Baltimore Family Establishes
IEF Deaf-Mute School in Tel Aviv

Ground was broken Wednesday
in Tel Aviv for a vocational high
school for deaf-mute children,
which is being constructed through
a gift to the Israel Education Fund
of the United Jewish Appeal by
the Hoffberger Foundation of
Baltimore.
LeRoy E. Hoff-
berger, thet
foundation's pres-
ident, said in
Baltimore that
the $150,000
pledge to the Is-
r a e 1 Education
Fund was made
in addition to the
foundation's in-
creased support
of the 1967 Com-
bined Campaign
of Baltimore's As-
sociated Jewish
Charities and
Welfare Fund, of
which Hoffberger Hoffberger
is general vice-chairman.
Joseph Meyerhoff, also of Balti-
more, is the IEF's chairman and
Charles J. Bensley of New York
is its president. Charles C. Hoff-
berger, a member of the board of
directors of the foundation, accom-
panied by Mrs. Hoffberger, repre-
sented the family at the ground-
breaking ceremonies.
The new vocational high school
will enroll nearly 80 boys and

girls from throughout the State of
Israel. Theoretical training in
vocational subjects will be stressed,
as well as practical instruction, so
that its graduates will be prepared
to compete successfully for employ-
ment opportunities.
Among the innovations will be
a project involving the use of
teaching machines, through a grant
from the U.S. Department of
Health, Education and Welfare.
The Israel-Education Fund was
created by the United Jewish Ap-
peal to meet acute building, per-
sonnel and equipment shortages in
Israel's secondary education sys-
