New York (Nov. 26)
A luncheon was tendered today to greet Mrs. Israel Zangwill and tobid fare well to Miss Henrietta Szold by Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization, an the Hotel Astor. Miss Szold is leaving for Palestine.
Members of Hadassah of the New York and Brooklyn Chapters and surrounding cities in Connecticut, New York State, New Jersey and Pennsylvania were invited.
Miss Szold, the president and founder of Hadassah, and one of the pioneers of the Zionist movement in the United States, will leave in a few days for Palestine, where she is planning to spend three months in the interests of the Governing Board of the Hadassah Hospitals in Palestine and as a representative of Hadassah.
Last Aprail Miss Szold returned from three years spent in Palestine where she acted as co-director of the Hadassah Medical Organization, and developed the Nurses’ Training School in Jerusalem. During Miss Szold’s stay in America she has worked out a plan of infant stations for mothers to be made possible by the gift of $10,000 of Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Straus, and a similar sum which Hadassah expects to raise.
