The Forget-Mc-Noss of Zion will
celebrate the lirst anniversary of their
organization Sunday evening at the
Farnsworth synagogue. This cele-
bration is being looked forward to by
leaders in Young Judea as the leading
event of the week in the ranks of
junior Zionism.
Under the leadership of Mr. Samuel
Ileyman, the Forget-Me-Not, of Zion
have during the past year built one of
the finest literary Jewish study cir-
cles in the Detroit Jewish community.
In addition to the weekly lectures de-
livered by Mr. Heyman at their regu-
lar meetings, held at the Division
street Talmud Torah, the Forget-Me-
Note were always ready to lend a
helping hand in promoting the cause
of the Jewish nationalist movement.
On Flower and Flag days the girls
have raised large sums of tnoney. At
Young Judea entertainments they
have taken commendable parts.
When a sum of money was being
raised last year in the Young Judea
rattles for Jewish relief, the Forget-
Me-Nots of Zion were the ones to
head the list with the highest dona-
tion. The latest accomplishment of
this circle was the establishment of a
library for the members.
Mr. Heyman has prepared an inter-
esting program for this celebration.
All the leaders in Young Judea and
others prominent in the ranks of
Zionism were invited. Mr. J. V.
Ariel, one of the local Hebrew teach-
ers, will deliver an address, in addition
to talks by Messrs. Heyman and Slo-
movitz. Mr. Herbert l'arzen will in-
stall the officers.
