On Nov. 17, at 1 o'clock, two
buses waited outside of Hillel Day
School. After being filled with the
school choir and students of the
junior high school, the buses de-
parted for Bnai Moshe Synagogue
where a meeting of the Women's
Auxiliary of the Jewish National
Fund was already in progress.
Mrs. Goldie Eakin, our music
teacher, had been preparing the
students for weeks to perform
at this meeting. Our presentation
consisted of a brief historical pic-
ture of the Jews and events taking
place in Israel today. All spoken
parts were tied together by ap-
propriate songs sung by the choir.
To end the program, a slide of
the Israeli flag was shown while
the audience joined us in singing
The purpose of the meeting
was to raise mosey for a forest
to be planted In Israel in mem-
ory of the children who were
killed recently when a school
bus is which they were riding
was Mown up. Many contribu-
tions were made at the weeds&
and other esstributises were to
be sent in. The project is being
carried as nationwide.
Following the program, the par-
ticipants were shown to another
room where we were served re-
freshments. Then we returned to
the auditorium where Mrs. William
Levin, who was chairing the meet-
ing, addressed a few words to us.
The meeting was adjourned
soon afterwards, and once again
the buses were loaded and the
students returned to school.
