The Development of School Hygiene in the Hebrew Schools of Palestine

By M. Berachyahu

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, March 1929

The earliest educational institutions in Palestine did not employ full time medical staff and only had a physician visiting several times a year. In 1913, Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America, introduced eye treatments into Jerusalem schools, extending its work to hygienic work in all Hebrew schools in 1919. The features of the Hadassah Department of School Hygiene in Palestine included medical treatment, examinations of pupils by specialists and laboratory tests, special school physicians, and children's clinics.
