Download PDF for this date

Junior Hadassah, the outstanding young women’s Zionist organization of America, is now conducting a sweeping membership campaign throughout the country.

Today has been set aside as National Membership Day, whereby every young Jewish woman in each community will be approached to join the ranks of Junior Hadassah.

Beginning with but a few units in 1920, the organization now has 170 units, with a membership of 10,000.

There is a Junior Hadassah unit in almost every large city in the United States, in every section of the country.

In addition to the cultural work of the organization, Junior Hadassah supports three projects in Palestine; Meier Shfeyah, a complete children’s village; Pardess Anna, a training farm; and the Nurses’ Training School.
