More than 275 women attended the first annual “mother and daughter” luncheon of the Bnoth Ivriah, recently founded junior auxiliary of Ivriah, the women’s division of the Jewish Education Association, at the Hotel Ambassador yesterday.
Mrs. Rebekah Kohut, the principal speaker, praised the members of the organization for giving attention to the problems of Jewish education.
It was the failure to do this, she said, that resulted in much suffering in Germany with the accession of Chancellor Hitler to power.
Other speakers were Mrs. Gabriel Hamburger, chairman of Ivriah, and Mrs. A. J. Ostreicher, cultural chairman of Ivriah. Mrs. Levinthal presided. Mrs. George Markelson was chairman of the arrangements committee.
