Women to Consider Challenge to Jewry

Download PDF for this date

Jewish women will consider some of the outstanding problems of modern Israel at an important state conference opening Tuesday. The meeting is the fourth biennial session of the California State Federation of Temple Sisterhoods.

Sessions will be held in Temple Sinai, Oakland, across the bay from San Francisco, and will be attended by women who are taking a leading part in Jewish educational, cultural, religious and social welfare activities.

One of the principal features of the program will be a symposium on the subject, “Challenge of the Modern World—How We Face It as Jews.”

Among the speakers to participate in the discussion will be Monroe Friedman of Oakland, grand president of District Grand Lodge No. 4 of the B’nai B’rith; Dr. Max Radin of the University of California, and Rabbi Morris Goldstein of Temple Sherith Israel, San Francisco.

While preparations for this event are holding the attention of San Francisco Jewish women, they are dividing their energies with the present annual campaign of the San Francisco Community Chest, which has just been launched with a goal of $1,900,000.
