Marie Syrkin, U.S. Jewish Writer, Honored for Book on Golda Myerson

The Pioneer Women honored Marie Syrkin, author, lecturer and teacher for her book “Way of Valor,” a biography of Mrs. Golda Myerson, Israel’s Minister of Labor, at a ceremony here last night. Mrs. Myerson, currently visiting Israel, was present during the ceremony.

Presenting Miss Syrkin with a scroll, Dr. Sara Feder, former president of the Pioneer Women, noted her contributions in the field of poetry and her editorial activities for “Jewish Frontier,” publication of the Labor Zionist movement in this country, and that she is a member of the Brandeis University faculty. Louis Lipsky, veteran Zionist, gave an evaluation of Miss Syrkin’s prize winning book. The award was established in 1954 by Pioneer Women to honor the late Hayim Greenberg.
