Young Judaea Parley Will Honor Memory of Theodor Herzl

The thirtieth anniversary of the death of Theodor Herzl, founder of Zionism, will be commemorated at the national convention of Young Judaea, to be held in Cincinnati July 6 to 9 inclusive. There will be a memorial service, sponsored by the Hadassah and other local organizations in association with the convention committee.

A feature of the program will be the virtual transfer of the Avondale Synagogue, of which Rabbi Louis Feinberg is spiritual leader, to the convention hall of the Netherland Plaza, for a religious service on Saturday morning, July 7. The synagogue itself will be closed.

The Netherland Plaza will be convention headquarters. David Polish, Cincinnati, national vice-president, is general chairman of the local convention committee.
