Israeli Women Lack Training, Says Head of Hadassah Education

Yeshiva Leader Weingarden
Recovers; to Be Feted at Party

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The
Yom Kippur War revealed
that Israel neglected to util-
ize half of its manpower be-
cause of its inadequate train-
ing of women, according to
Dr. Helen Kittner, director
of the Hadassah Israel Edu-
cation Services.
Addressing H a d a s s a h's
midwinter conference here,
she said: "Our women do
not have the education or the
technological training to re-
place the men in their jobs.
Many of them cannot even
balance the family check-
books."
Dr. Kittner stressed that
t h e Hadassah Seligsberg/
Brandeis Comprehensive
High School has "finally
broken the educational and
vocational stereotype about
male-female careers."
Women are currently en-
rolled in printing classes,
computer technology courses
and management courses at
the Hadassah Community
College.

1971, 11 families each sub-
scribed $25,000 in honor of
John W. H. Bassett, at that
time publisher of the Toronto
Telegram, one of the largest
dailies in Canada, as a mark
of tribute for his friendship
for Israel and the Jewish
community,
These funds were used to
establish a sports center in
the Arava kibutz at Yotvata
in Israel. That center was
dedicated in December by
the Toronto United Jewish
Appeal mission led by Mur-
ray B. Koffler with Bassett
and his wife.
