Appropriators Single Out Six Israeli Institutions


Jewish Journal, July 22, 2009


U.S. Senate appropriators named six Israeli health and education institutions among 15 recommended for U.S. funding.

The Senate Appropriations Committee on July 9 approved the 2010 foreign operations appropriations bill and referred it to the full Senate.

In a report accompanying the bill, it named 15 institutions that the appropriators suggested were deserving of U.S. Agency for International Development assistance under the USAID Schools and Hospitals Abroad program. Six of those were Israeli; three were Lebanese.

Report language is not mandatory, but agencies usually pay close attention to such recommendations .

The six Israeli institutions are Ashdod Emergency Medical Center; Edith Wolfson Medical Center in Holon; the Feinberg Graduate School of the Weizmann Institute of Science; Hadassah Medical Organization; Hebrew University; and Tel Aviv University.
