For the first time in its history, Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, will hold its convention in New York City. The convention will open on September 18 at the Hotel Commodore and continue until the 20th. More than 300 delegates from all over the country are expected, representing 251 chapters and a total membership of approximately 30,000.

This convention will be the first to have present at its sessions the director of the medical work in Palestine maintained by the American Organization. Dr. Haim Yassky has been in the United States for six months, during which time he has studied a number of health institutions in various cities, among which are New York, Boston, Baltimore, Syracuse and others. At the convention, Dr. Yassky will give a detailed account of the progress of the work in Palestine.
