More than 400 Pioneer Women leaders from across the United States will convene in St. Louis, Missouri, September 12-15, for their 22nd Biennial National Convention. Mrs. Jack Zackler, Chicago attorney and national president of the women’s Zionist organization, said: “We are meeting this year at an unusual time in the history of American-Zionist affairs. Up to now, the continuing outside threats to Israel’s security accompanied by the affluence within the American Jewish community accelerated financial support for Israel. However, in a period such as we are now experiencing, where there is an ongoing cease-fire in Israel and an economic decline in our own country, we must be prepared to deal with a possible complacency within our own American-Jewish community.”
