Ground-breaking ceremonies were held here yesterday for a $500,000 Pioneer Women’s Center for overseas members. The ceremonies marked the end of a week-long biannual meeting of the World Executive of Moetzet Hapoalot–Pioneer Women–attended by 30 leaders from nine countries. Among those attending were Mrs. Esther Zackler of Chicago, president of the Pioneer Women in the US, and past presidents Clara Leff and Blanche Fine. The new center will serve immigrants and visitors to Israel. The meeting adopted a series of resolutions on behalf of Soviet and Syrian Jews, and also launched a program to train new leadership and expand Jewish education. It sent a cable of support to Premier Golda Meir, a former Pioneer Women leader.
