Download PDF for this date

The closing day of the 20th annual convention of the Associated Young Men’s and Young Women’s Hebrew Association of New England held in Cambridge over the Labor Day week-end was characterized by election of officers, the Old Timers’ luncheon at which Governor Frank G. Allen lauded the educational achievements of the movement, an educational session when plans were discussed for establishing Jewish theatres throughout the state, and a formal ball in the evening.

During the educational discussion it was brought out that there are very few Jewish theatres in Massachusetts, and the association resolved to make an attempt to establish more in the Western part of the State.

The following officers were elected, representing New England Y’s: president, Isaac Kibrick of Brockton, who succeeds George E. Gordon of Chelsea; vice-presidents, Louis E. Baker of Salem, Eli A. Cohen of Lynn, Mrs. Joseph Finberg of Attleboro, Mrs. Eva O. Goldberg and Max Kabatznick, both of Boston; secretary, Arthur Kornstein of Woonsocket, R. I.; and treasurer, Joseph Finberg of Attleboro.
