Zionists Throughout Country Prepare for Larger Program

Download PDF for this date

A concerted attempt by Zionists throughout the country to increase the membership of the Zionist. Organization of America and to secure the cooperation of additional forces, both in the officers of the districts and in the enrollment, is now in full swing, according to a preliminary outline of activities issued by Jacob de Haas, Chairman for Organization.

Two of the most important events are to be held in the first two weeks of September in Chicago and Boston, where programs will be drawn up to stimulate membership activities throughout the region. The Zionists of Chicago have called a regional conference for September 7. Miss Pearl Franklin is chairman of the Conference committee, which includes such well-known figures as Judge Harry M. Fisher, Rabbi Solomon Goldman, Max Shulman, H. Steinberg, Dr. A. E. Abramowitz and H. L. Meites.

This conference will also be attended by representatives of the Peninsula district which includes the Zionists of Green Bay and communities north of that. It is understood that these conferences will work out a method of cooperation with the local districts whereby officers who are not functioning will be replaced with those who will devote themselves actively to building up the Zionist movement.

A conference of New England Zionists will be held at the Elysium Club, Boston, on September 14. James D. Glunts, temporary chairman of the New England Region, has appointed Julius Meyer as Chairman of the Conference Committee, which has the assistance of numerous other Zionists from every part of the region, who are anxious that they shall be the first to record an enlarged enrollment in the Zionist Organization.
