Justice Brandeis Memorial Membership Campaign Proclaimed by American Zionists

Dedicating its current year’s membership enrollment to the memory of the late Justice Louis D. Brandeis, the Zionist Organization of America today proclaimed a Brandeis Memorial Membership campaign for the sixty-day period from December 1st, 1941 to February 1st, 1942.

The eight days of Chanukah commemorating the victory of the Maccabeans over the Syrian tyrants, which will be observed by Jews from December 14th to 22nd, have been set aside as special Membership Week “in honor of the great Maccabean of our time, Louis D. Brandeis,” it was stated by Judge Louis E. Levinthal, president of the Z.O.A., in the proclamation announcing the launching of the campaign. “For more than a quarter of a century Justice Brandeis maintained uninterruptedly his membership affiliation with the Z.O.A. One of his very last acts before he passed away was the payment of his membership dues for 1941-42,” Judge Leventhal declared.
