Hadassah Sets Date for Convention in September After Congress Sessions

May 13, 1929
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The fifteenth annual convention of Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, will be held late in September, it was announced at the Hadassah headquarters. A Hadassah convention in the Fall is a departure from the usual custom of holding it at about the same time as that of the Zionist Organization, which this year will be from June 30 to July 2 at Detroit.

The postponement was decided by a majority vote of the 287 chapters of Hadassah, to which the national board recommended that the convention be held after the World Zionist Congress, to take place in Zurich in July. Some problems upon which the Congress will take action will directly affect Hadassah, so that holding the convention after the Congress would give Hadassah an opportunity to act upon the Congress decision, it was stated.

A conference of women Zionists from twenty-five cities in New York will be held on Tuesday at the Hotel Manger, under the auspices of Hadassah, to organize a Lower New York State Regional Unit.

“Studies in Psycho-Expedition,” a translation by Dr. Herman Frank of the work of F. Schneersohn, “Der Web zum Menschen,” has just been published by N. L. Brown, New York. Introductions to the English translation are by Prof. John Dewey of Columbia University and Dr. Adolph Meyer of Johns Hopkins University.

Prof. Schneersohn, who arrived in New York last year, is the author of a new current in psychology which he calls the “science of man.”
