Last week’s high light was Mrs. Herbert H. Lehman’s tea for the officers and members of the Women’s Division of the Federation. The tea was held in Mrs. Lehman’s New York home, 820 Park avenue, and was sponsored by a special committee under the chairmanship of Mrs. Richard J. Bernhard.

The hospitality shown to the Federation Group is again proof of the warm interest the First Lady of the State has always taken in the various philanthropic activities of Jewish Women Organizations.

Of interest also was the first regular membership meeting of the season of the Women’s American ORT held last Tuesday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Lande, 28 West Eighty-ninth street.
