Additional Details

7 January 1941: ". . . Your addresses represent the issues of undying values and the determination to make them prevail."
In his address at the 25th Annual Convention of Hadassah, Goldman asked, "Will American Jewry . . . rise to its full stature, or will this giant among the Jewries of the world fetter its own hands and feet?
