Choice Autograph letter signed by Henrietta Szold to Elisha Friedman regarding the Zionist Organization of America and its early efforts to secure life members
New York, NY, July 28, 1927. 5.5X9. "Autograph letter signed ""Henrietta Szold"", one page, 5½"" x 9"", on stationary of the Hotel Alexandria, July 28, 1927, New York, NY, addressed to Elisha Friedman.Szold writes: ""Am I wrong in assuming that you expressed at least individual approval of the plan of discharging the deficit of the Zionist Organization of America as a first step towards making it an effective instrument for Palestinian work, when I spoke to you at the Physician's Dinner? At all events, I venture to ask whether you will help us do what we have undertaken by becoming a life member of the Organization? The plan is to secure two thousand such life members at $100 each. That will cover the deposit of $156,000 and give us a small reserve out of the interest on which we can supplement our normal revenues. Will you help?..."" A steadfast and loyal Zionist, Friedman was a member of the American Economic Committee for Palestine, on the Board of the American Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and on the Finance Committee of the Palestine Endowment Funds and the Hadassah Medical Organization. Fine."
