Travel back in time to an era of Israel’s history that is often overlooked. During the last years of the Ottoman Empire, Palestine was bursting with tourism, economic growth, and new institutions. Jerusalem in particular — which had always been in the hearts of Jews around the world — was experiencing major growth and change. Join author Debbi Perkul to learn about the fascinating years of 1913–1915 through the eyes of Clevelander Rae Landy, the very first Hadassah nurse. A book signing follows the talk.
