Nursing Zionism From 1913 to 1915, Rae Landy lived in Jerusalem among the bustle, the poverty, the burgeoning Zionism and the outbreak of World War I. Winds Over Jerusalem, a new book by Cleveland-born author Debbi Perkul, examines the career of one of the pioneering Hadassah nurses. In her introduction, Perkul—great-great niece to Landy—describes the book as "a memorial to a great woman who never had children, who has no direct descendants to remember her, to say Kaddish for her, to mourn her or to celebrate her life."
