Hadassah Medical Center (University Clinics) Ein Kerem - Pâques 1985

 

Laying waste a bucolic landscape, the Hadassah, a real university & hospital township, has been erected in the years 60 above Ein Kerem. Around a 600-bed hospital, a dental school, medicine and pharmacy faculties have been opened. Tourists are invited to follow an audiovisual show of this unique higher learning entity in the Near East, and to visit the brightly-lit synagogue with 12 exquisite stained-glass made in Paris by the painter Marc Chagall and the stained glass artist Charles Macq, depicting the blessings that Jacob, on his deathbed, bestowed to each of his 12 sons (Genesis 49:1-27). The sons of Jacob became the founders of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.
