JERUSALEM — Sixty-
eight years ago, Nathan
Straus, and his wife Lina,
who were noted philan-
thropists, gave Henrietta
Szold the seed money for
what became the Hadassah
Medical Organization.
Recently, their great-
great-granddaughter was
born at the Hadassah He-
brew University Medical
Center in Jerusalem in a
medical complex that
started with two American
public health nurses who
pioneered a mother-and-
child health station in the
Holy City.
Several years ago,
Andrea Straus, great-
granddaughter of Nathan
and Lina, immigrated to Is-
rael where she met and
married Amir Shaviv, an
Israeli television journalist.
A graduate of the Hunter
College School of Social
Work, Andi now carries the
Jerusalem tradition of her
family.

TEL AVIV — The Israeli
Export Institute has
launched a campaign to in-
crease the exports of
Israeli-made toys and
games.
More than $6 million in
Israeli toys were exported in
1978 and manufacturers
are studying expansion of
their facilities.

Nathan Straus main-
tained a soup kitchen for
the poor of Jerusalem.
When Henrietta Szold in
1912 wanted to enlarge
Hadassah's activities
from a Zionist study cir-
cle to an organization
with a practical program
as well, Nathan said:
"Once, long ago, I suffered
the pangs of hunger. I was
starving. I had no money for
a single meal for days and I
have never forgotten the
sensation. In so far as it lies
within my power, no man
that crosses my path shall
go hungry."
When the Strauses heard
about Miss Szold's plans for
Hadassah to send nurses to
Jerusalem, they came to
visit her, climbing the three
flights of stairs to her mod-
est apartment in New York
City.
"Why don't you start
work?" they asked her. She
then admitted that she had
only $273 in the treasury.
They at once provided the

funds to send the nurses,
Rose Kaplan and Rachel
Landy, to the Holy Land.
The nurses arrived
early in 1913, and so
began Hadassah's medi-
cal work. In 1929, the
monumental Nathan and
Lina Straus Hadassah
Health Center for All
Races and Creeds was
formally dedicated in
Jerusalem.
Since then Hadassah has
invested millions of dollars
in a network of hospitals
and services emanating
from the Hadassah-Hebrew
University Medical Center
with its two great campuses
at Ein Karem in western
Jerusalem and Mount

Jews "disadvantaged." The
designation would make
them eligible for minority

In a letter to the
President, Nathan
Perlmutter, ADL's national
director,_ pointed out that
the SBA turned down the
request while adknowledg-
ing that "the evidence of
prejudice and discrimina-
tion experienced by the
Hasidim is overwhelming
and essentially unrefuted."

According to Perlmut-
ter, the April 9 decision
was based on the SBA's
view that Hasidic Jews
are a religious group and
not a traditional minor-
ity.

Perlmutter noted that
there is wide Congressional
support for designating the
Hasidim as "socially disad-
vantaged," listing as exam-
ples Rep. Shirley Chisolm
(D-N.Y.), Rep. Louis Stokes
(D-Ohio) and Senators Bill
