Amit Women Leader Golub Dies

Mollie Golub of New York, a lawyer and honorary national president of AMIT Women, died here Monday at the age of 87. She had been active in the religious women’s Zionist movement for more than 40 years at the local, regional and national levels.

Golub served as national president of AMIT, formerly American Mizrachi Women, from 1949-51, and was elected again in 1956 to a one-year term.

She negotiated with governmental agencies in the U.S. and Israel on a variety of projects aiding children and new immigrants in Israel. She travelled extensively to rally support for her organization’s work, aimed at creating a secure and religious Israel. Its projects expanded greatly during her terms in office.
