Hadassah Launches Drive for Palestine School Luncheons

Download PDF for this date

The Hadassah Campaign for the Palestine School Luncheons Fund, through which school children in Palestine are supplied with daily hot meals, is now under way. The campaign began on December 15th, the Feast of Light. During this week an appeal will be made to the children in the religious and Sunday schools. Rabbis and teachers are cooperating by telling their pupils of the work of the Fund.

A national campaign is being conducted by Mrs. Alexander Lamport, of New York, chairman of the Palestine School Luncheons Committee of Hadassah. In announcing that the budget for this year is $25,000, an increase of $7,000 over that of last year, Mrs. Lamport declared that the wide-spread and increasing interest in the work of the committee gives promise of large returns in this year’s campaign.
