The Eleanor Rathbone Memorial in Palestine

Immediately after Eleanor Rathbone's death in 1946 the Children and Youth Aliyah Committee in Great Britain proposed a permanent memorial to Rathbone as an enduring tribute for her work for persecuted Jewry. The proposal was supported by her friends and others in the UK and funds were raised in conjunction with the London Rathbone Memorial Committee. The Eleanor Rathbone School (House) at the Youth Aliyah Farming Institute near Tel Aviv, was opened in 1949.
