Henrietta Szold Honored by Junior Hadassah Parley in Baltimore

The 16th annual convention of Junior Hadassah turned today to the controversial question of affiliation with the American Youth Congress.

The 1,500 delegates and guests from 41 states, meeting at the Lord Baltimore Hotel, at the opening session yesterday, honored Miss Henrietta Szold, Baltimore-born leader of the Youth Aliyah organization, on her 79th birthday and heard Dr. Stephen S. Wise declare that true Americanism called upon the American Jew “to give the utter most of his loyalty to the establishment of a Jewish commonwealth in Palestine, a cause which means the furthering of the democratic ideal.”
