Download PDF for this date

The twelfth annual convention of Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, will be held at Buffalo on June 30th and July 1st. Sessions will be held at the Statler Hotel immediately following the adjournment of the Zionist convention.

The chief topic of discussion will be the million dollar fund for a chain of hospitals in Palestine, a campaign for which has just been projected by Hadassah in conjunction with the American Jewish Physicians’ Committee.

Other business that will come before the convention will be a million dollar budget for Hadassah health and social welfare work in Palestine, and the strengthening of the organization in America. Dr. Nathan Ratnoff, chairman of the Joint Hospital Committee, Mrs. Archibald Silverman, and Mrs. M. Fuldheim will report on the hospital campaign at the dinner which will be given to the delegates on Wednesday evening, June 30th, by the Cleveland chapter.

Miss Henrietta Szold, president of the organization, will report on conditions in Palestine where she is at the present time.
