Pioneer Women Convention Decides to Raise $2,500,000 for Israel

The 13th biennial national convention of Pioneer Women today accepted a $2,500,000 fund-raising quota on behalf of its sister organization, the Working Women’s Council of Israel.

Mrs. Beba Idelson, a member of the Knesset and general secretary of the Working Women’s Council, traced the growth of the movement in Israel from its inception 32 years ago when its membership was 500 to today’s membership of 210,000, including all women who belong to the Histadrut, Israel’s Federation of Labor.

Dr. Sara Feder, national president of Pioneer Women, presented a detailed report on the organization’s activities and accomplishments in 1952-53 and projected new undertakings for the forthcoming two-year period.
