Download PDF for this date

Meyer W. Weisgal, editor of the “New Palestine,” during a visit to Detroit, with the assistance of the convention committee from the Zionist District of Detroit, decided upon Hotel Statler as the headquarters for the annual convention of the Zionist Organization, to be held here beginning June 30. The first day’s sessions are to be held in the Masonic Temple, and the last three days’ deliberations will be at the Statler. Israel Zilber is chairman of the Detroit District convention committee.

It is said here that for the first time in many years the Hadassah Women’s Zionist Organization will not meet at the same time and at the same place as the Zionist Organization. The Hadassah convention, it is said, will be held in the fall.

Upon inquiry at Hadassah headquarters in New York, Mrs. Zip F. Szold. acting president, made the following statement to the Jewish Daily Bulletin: “We have not yet decided, and will not know until May 1st, when our convention will take place.”
