Dr. Amin El-Khateeb
In memory of Dr. Amin El-Khateeb who had served the Jerusalem community for many years as head of the Charitable Societies, the school board decided to offer a scholarship in his name starting next fall. However, the school has already started receiving contributions from the community towards that scholarship. Dr. Khateeb was known as the poor peoples’ doctor, and was a national icon. Bless his soul; may he rest in peace.
