Council of Jewish Women
The Council of Jewish Wom
en through the cotfrtesy of the
Jewish press desires to invito
the Jewish women of thecoun
try to attend its Fifth Triennial
Convention to b e held in Cincin
nati December 110 1908 It
invites cities and towns in which
there is no section of the council
to form committees to send offi
cial delegates to represent them
as was done 01 jhe Congress of
Jewish Women m Chicago iii
1893 The courtesies of the con
vention will be extended to such
representatives as well as to in
dividual members visiting Cin
cinnati for the purpose of attend
ing the triennial which prom
ises to be the most important
ever held by the council s
Cincinnati is making clcboVai 3
preparations to welcome the
large number of delegates and
visitors who have already signi
fied their intention to be pres
ent r
The central situation and the
accessibility of Cincinnati from
all parts of the country should
aid in bringing 10 the triennial
a large number of visitors The
inspiration of meeting the work
ers who gather at the triennials
is bound to result in a desireto
join so strong and effective a
organization At the Fourth
Triennial the1 dues wer6 raised
froml4 00 to 200 per annum
It was feared that this might re
duce the membership a fear
which has proven groundless
Several sectionshave almost
doubled their rhembersliipV and
in very few of them has there
been any loss whatever on ac
count of the dues the paid mem
bership in the council being as
large today as it was three years
ago and relatively much larger
in round numbers 10000 paid
members seniors and juniors in
May 3005 and in May 1908
The program of the triennial
will have many well known
speakers on subjects connected
