The Ezra Hospital: 'Elia Ezra was pained by the health-related difficulties felt by the poor members of the Jewish community. He also sought to provide a hospital for Jews that would have the necessary dietary facilities for Jewish patients. He had planned to build a hospital in a Jewish neighborhood on the site of three buildings on 34 – 36 Ezra Street. He was not able to fulfill his wish as he died in 1886, but his widow, Mozelle Ezra, originally from the Sassoon family, and a great philanthropist in her own right, fulfilled his wish.'
