Eleanor Marvin of Woodmere, N.Y. was elected president of the International Council of Jewish Women (ICJW) at its triennial convention which ended here today. Mrs. Marvin, a past president of the National Council of Jewish Women, succeeds Rosa de Herzeg, of Argentina.

The ICJW, a voluntary social service agency with more than one million members in 30 countries, announce that it will hold its third Summit Conference in Israel next November. The convention here, which drew hundreds of delegates from all parts of the world, drafted resolutions relating to the status of women, service to the community, Israel and the United Nations. The five-day gathering included workshops, seminars and presentations.

The ICJW, founded in 1912, is dedicated to human rights and welfare in the Jewish and general communities. The National Council of Jewish Women, an American group, is its largest affiliate.

There will be no Bulletin date May 29 due to Memorial Day, a postal holiday.
