Download PDF for this date

Gifts to the 200 units of Junior Hadassah, the Young Women’s Zionist Organization of America, increased by $8,000 over last year’s total contributions, according to a report issued yesterday by the Misses Pauline Englander and Martha Loewenstein, both of Jersey City, N. J., co-chairmen of fund-raising. The society raised more funds during its fiscal year, ending July 1, than during any of the corresponding periods since 1932, the report reveals.

The report states that $47,000 was collected for the organization’s Palestinian work, which includes the maintenance of a children’s village of 115 boys and girls, an orange grove for agricultural training and the Hadassah Nurses’ Training School in Jerusalem. In addition, the 200 units raised an aggregate of close to $14,000 for the Jewish National Fund, which is $4,000 more than the organization set as its goal.
