business enterprises and to help-
ing people. He visited the Holy
Land seven times, on each occasion
founding hospitals and schools and
aiding the poor. He bought land
for agricultural enterprises and
encouraged Jewish colonization. He
established the first girls' school

when they were falsely accused of
