October 1, 1933
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The special mission of the Jewish woman in America is to educate the future generations for Judaism, according to Dr. Trude Weiss-Rosmarin, director of the School for the Jewish Woman which is to open on October 15 under the auspices of the New York Chapter of Hadassah. For the most part, states Dr. Rosmarin, the American Jewish woman is not prepared to give her children a background of Jewish affairs because she herself has not been given suitable Jewish educational facilities. It is hoped that the School for the Jewish Woman will supply that need and eventually develop into an Institute of Higher Jewish Learning adapted to the needs of the Jewish Woman. The school which is located at 125 East 85th Street is open to every Jewish woman.


The Hadassah organization of Canada will open its activities with a dominion-wide membership campaign to enroll every Jewish woman in Canada under the Hadassah banner.

Of the members enrolled during the drive which will terminate on December 1, one will be chosen to visit Palestine this year as a guest of the Canadian Hadassah.
