Boston (Nov. 14)
Mrs. Moses P. Epstein was today re-elected president of Hadassah for her fourth term at the closing session of the organization’s 32nd annual convention.
In a brief address, Mrs. Epstein called on the membership of Hadassah to prepare “for a crucial year in Jewish history, one that will see tightening tensions and shortening lines of struggle on the Zionist scene and elsewhere, requiring a continued fight to win the peace.” She added that “like David of Old we cannot be intimidated by the Goliath of power politics.”
As its last action, the convention approved a budget of $120,000 for the activities of the Hadassah Youth Commission, bringing the total sum appropriated for Palestine projects to $4,070,000.
Other officers elected were Honorary Vice-President: Mrs. Edward Jacobs of New York. Vice-Presidents: Mrs. David B. Greenberg, Mrs. Benjamin Gottesman, both of New York; Mrs. Jack A. Goodman of Indianapolis; Mrs. Louis T. Rothenberg of Piedmont, Calif. The last three are newcomers to the post. Treasurer: Mrs. Abraham Tulin of New York, Secretary: Mrs. Elliot F. Glassberg of New Rochelle. Recording Secretary: Mrs. Emanuel Halpern of New York.
