Savannah, Qeorgia the Senior-Junior luncheon next Sunday, is widely known in Jew ish youth circles throughout the country as a student of Jewish history, literature and the lore of traditional observance and as an effective speaker and organizer. Now a resident of New York, Miss Ziff lived a number of years in Minneapolis, Minn., where she be came president of the Minneapolis unit and then president of the Northwest region of the organiza tion. She was elected national vice president in 1934, holding the post until 1936. Mrs. Oscar G. Bender, member of the national board of Hadassah, will also be one of the leading wo men at the convention. After graduating from the Philadelphia High School for Girls and Gratz College, she organized the first Young Judaea Club in America, becoming its first president. Her grasp of Zionist affairs and un derstanding of Jewish life both in this country and abroad have made her a valued worker for Hadassah.
