About the project
The Masada Elementary School was a secular public school located on Ben Zakai Street in the Katamon Vav neighborhood that served 300-450 students in grades one-six each year. The Jerusalem Foundation supported creation of the Gertrude & Theodore Horwich Computer Laboratory at the school and 1989, and provided new equipment for it over the year. It also renovated the school library in 1998 and later provided books. In 2002, after several years of a diminishing student population, the school was closed and the facility became home to the Marilyn Cole & Francine Zusman Sina Torah & Arts High School for Girls. The computer laboratory was moved to the Henrietta Szold Elementary School in Old Katamon and the library was relocated to the Paula Ben-Gurion Elementary School in Rechavia.
