See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The eight days of Chanukah, from December 14 to 22, will be observed as Zionist Membership Week by Zionist Districts and groups throughout the country in tribute to the memory of the late Justice Louis D. Brandeis, in accordance with a proclamation issued today by Judge Louis E. Leventhal, President of the Zionist Organization of America. The Membership Week will be part of the general Brandeis memorial membership campaign proclaimed for the sixty-day period ending February 1.

Calling for the observance of Membership Week during Chanukah, Judge Leventhal declared that “as an enduring monument to a modern Maccabean, the Brandeis Memorial Membership must evoke a nationwide response. I call upon every Jew who cherishes the memory of Louis D. Brandeis and who feels a kinship and sympathy with the valiant Yishuv in Palestine, to enroll as a member of the Zionist Organization of America.”
