Freud—eitingon—magnes Correspondence—Psychoanalysis at the Hebrew University

Milton Rosenbaum, M.D.

In the summer of 1953, while in Israel as Visiting Professor of Psychiatry at the Hebrew University—Hadassah Medical School, I was invited to give a talk to the Israeli Psychoanalytic Society at a regular meeting held in Jerusalem. The first part of the meeting was set aside as a memorial service commemorating the tenth anniversary of the death of Dr. Eitingon. Dr. Eitingon was the driving force and moving spirit in the development of psychoanalysis in Palestine, and I was deeply touched by the tender feelings of love, devotion and respect that his former students and colleagues expressed toward him that morning.

As part of my talk I discussed the growth of the psychoanalytic movement in the United States with some emphasis on the recent trend in some quarters of integrating psychoanalysis into the Universities. I also expressed my hope and wish to create a psychoanalytically oriented Department of Psychiatry in the Medical School in Jerusalem.

After that meeting I was approached by Dr. Aryeh Feigenbaum, Professor of Opthalmology at the Medical School, who told me of the original but unfortunately unsuccessful efforts to develop psychoanalysis in the Hebrew University.
