Download PDF for this date

Appreciation for the tribute paid to the memory of his mother, was expressed here yesterday by President Roosevelt, receiving a delegation of the Jewish section of the Interfaith Committee for Aid to the Democracies, which has established “somewhere in England” a Sara Delano Roosevelt Children’s Nursing Home for air raid victims.

The delegation, led by Dr Israel Goldstein, chairman of the Jewish section, presented the President with a scroll in which the memory of Sara Delano Roosevelt is cited as “a shining inspiration to American women for generations to come.” Scores of Jewish organizations and hundreds of individuals who cooperate with the Jewish section are signatories to the scroll.
