Palestine Forest Planned to Honor Late B’nai B’rith Officials

Download PDF for this date

B’nai B’rith districts, local lodges, and women’s auxiliaries throughout America were urged today by the Order’s Executive Committee to contribute to a memorial forest in Palestine to be named for Dr. Borish D. Bogen and Dr. I.M. Rubinow, late secretaries of B’nai B’rith.

A resolution passed by B’nai B’rith’s District. No.2 urged the creation of such a forest, and the Executive Committee has endorsed the idea, and has now made the appeal national in scope within B’nai B’rith, instead of limited to District No. 2.
